Summary: I am loving my Garmin 405cx! I have started an interval running program due to the interval training option on the watch. I am very impressed. I have always wanted a Garmin GPS but could never justify spending $200+ on a running watch.
Summary: Just received my Garmin Forerunner 405CX. Thought I would write an initial review and then update as I progress over the next few weeks. So I bought this and a new Schwin AC Performance Plus bike in an effort to get in shape.
Worthless and UNRELIABLE watch (as well as customer support)

Summary: thinking of buying a watch that does it all? Well that would be the forerunner 405CX. Except little do you know, it will break down or die on you JUST as the warranty expires. This is a comment from someone who has owned and used the watch for over 2 years now and is dealing with Garmin Support.
Summary: This watch has a fantastic feature set. It has everything I would want. The touch bezel issues when wet are not even a problem, they are a minor inconvenience at most. That said, the is the least reliable watch I have ever owned.
I'M TIRED OF GARMIN'S LACK OF SUPPORT AND ACCOUNTABILITY

Summary: I have owned two Garmin devices, the Forerunner 305 and the 405CX. The 305 worked fine but it is bulky and must be downloaded via a USB cable. No big deal but I purchased the 405CX as a step up. On more than one occasion the 405CX simply went dead even with a full charge.
