  • Summary: this band may be ok for a female, but not for a male. Small usb didn't even download on computer for test run. USB was lot smaller than the one in the photo.

  • Summary: I owned the watch for less than a month and it keeps freezing towards the end of my runs. Stay away from this watch. I'm planning on returning the watch.

Just starting out

  • 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.

DO NOT BUY

William M. Nelis IV, Amazon
18 June 2013
  • 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

Bobby D "bdelise", Amazon
17 June 2013
  • 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.

Not worth it

  • Summary: This is very hard to use. Don't waste your money. Stopped taking a charge after a couple of months. Never take the time to write a review but the product is that bad.

It never worked!

Martin, Amazon
19 March 2013
  • Summary: I bought 3 of these within two different orders, and for saving the cost of an International Shipment I decided to wait a couple of weeks until some friends come by to visit me. To my regret, I had troubles with all of the 405CX watches.

  • Summary: I wish I could say that I have had an overwhelmingly positive experience with Garmin products, but this has not been the case. I have a Forerunner 405 which worked well when it worked but had to be replaced 3 times in just over a year.

Good watch, horrible battery life

Dietmar Stork, Amazon
20 February 2013
  • Summary: Back in 2011, when I was finally ready to replace my regular watch with a GPS enabled running watch, I asked friends what they would recommend - some said Nike, some Garmin. I leaned towards Garmin due to the fact that the 405 CX has way more control options.

Battery has problems and will not last past a year

J. OConnor, Amazon
17 January 2013
  • Summary: I bought this watch on Dec.17, 2011 and it stopped working Jan. 15, 2013. This was heartbreaking because I really liked the watch but the warranty is only for a year and Garmin will charge me $110 to replace the battery.
