Would be "I love it" except

Tee Jay Hatch, Amazon

  • Summary: The watch is wonderful! When it works it is exactly what I was looking for and has helped tremendously in my running. It does however tend to be a little flaky. Sometimes seizing up and some times losing a charge suddenly.

Good but has some drawbacks

JP, Amazon

  • Summary: I really like this watch! I don't exactly know how to use all the features yet so it's frustrating when I accidentally touch the bezel and end up in a program I don't need or want at that moment and can't get back to where I was.

Great but needs instructions

  • Summary: I could focus on the bezel interface in this review. But, I won't. Many others have complained about the bezel. And, yes, it could be annoying. But, realistically once the bezel is in the "locked" position, it won't randomly change modes. I've tried to mess with it while it was locked.

This watch does everything!

  • Summary: This is an amazing watch. Technically I would give it a 4 1/2 stars, unfortunately that isn't possible, so I give it 4 stars. First of all, this watch does everything. It comes with a very comfortable and accurate heart rate monitor.

Review in Progress...malfunctioning watch

Rich Holland, Amazon
14 June 2011
  • Summary: I spent a lot of time reviewing this watch before deciding to purchase it. Here's what I took away from the reviews before me: 1. The bezel is NOT an iPod and I shouldn't expect it to respond like one. 2. I may have some trouble using the bezel if my fingers get sweaty.

GOOD TRAINING DEVICE

  • Summary: I normally don't write much, but I thought I should do this, since it was the help of many Amazon reviewers that made me decided to buy this watch. I guess it's my way of saying thank you for all the hard work I saw in these pages.

  • Summary: I've researched a lot before taking the decision of buying the Forerunner 405cx, which is my first GPS (I am long time Polar user) and to be completely honest, I still had some doubts when I placed the order, specially after review the comments of previous buyers.

Good companion for tracking workouts

Chris M. Schock, Amazon

  • Summary: Overall I like my Garmin 405cx. I've had it for just about a year. Pros: ANT+ is fantastic, no more interference from other monitors! I also like the display on the unit and how configurable it is. It's somewhat smaller than other GPS units and I can use it for running or cycling.

Started Out Great ..... But ........ Wound up Fine!

Michael, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this watch in late August. It started out great. Battery life was good, it found Satellites fast, I really loved it. But now it is a little over 3 months later. The battery only lasts a couple of days, (there is no way to turn this thing completely off) and it takes forever (sometimes as...

  • Summary: Let me start by saying that I've been a fan of Garmin and the Forerunner since the early days. That being said, I am reviewing this product not independently, but in comparison to other Garmin models. Here's what I like: -The design is greatly improved.
