I use mine for cycling and running, the direct link to see your workouts mapped on GOOGLE EARTH is FANTASTIC!!!! (the included software is far more stable than the junk Polar included with their HRM's.
Heart rate strap with replaceable battery is coded and comfortable. It's better in my opinion than the Polar products (of which I've owned three)
This is much better than the Forerunner 201 which I previously owned (locks on satellites 10 times faster) and I'd avoid the 405 unless you really want to use this watch as a normal day to day wristwatch (check out the 405 reviews)
One nice feature is being able to customize the display screens. Another review criticized the 305 for the numbers being too small to read while exercising. I don't have an issue but would point out that you can significantly increase the size of the display by simply displaying fewer fields.
My only complaint is that it's easy to leave it on and run the battery down -...
I absolutely love this watch. I was a little nervous about buying it after reading some bad reviews but I am soooo glad I bought it. It is true, it takes some time to acquire the satellite signal but I have not experienced a drop in the signal. The GPS is very accurate. I mapped my route before running and when the watch said I was done... I was done! You can set it to let you know when you reach certain distances. I have mine beep every mile and it helps my runs along. Also, I love breakdown it does, on the computer and the actual watch. Based on your settings it let's you know what your pace was for each interval, your average heart rate, and your max heart rate. Another plus is that it is very easy to load my runs from my Forerunner 305 to my [...] profile. And based on the information you can plot different parts of your runs against each other.
I must say I just LOVE this watch and you should definitely get one!!!
At first, I was taken aback by all the information I was getting about my runs and rides, and all the ways I could track my training on various websites. Once I got over that, I began to notice all the little things that could easily be improved upon:
Chest strap- Do they realize we keep our lungs in our chests? I find that if I have the strap tight enough to prevent it from sliding down to my waist, it restricts my breathing a little. We have veins flowing all over our bodies. Certainly they could do something with an arm or Wrist band. Also, on windy days when the contacts points get dried out, readings jump to 250+, which is about 60 BPM above my max.
Clouds- Sometimes on Cloudy days it won't acquire satellites, oddly my cell phone and XM radio still work on those days.
Charging- When it's switched off and charging from a computer, the Garmin switches itself back on automatically when the computer goes into standby, so you can't leave it charging...
