Garmin’s Forerunner 405: Train seriously


If you’re hard at work on your fitness resolution to run a marathon this year or hike a mountain, consider treating yourself to a watch loaded full of excellent training features. Garmin’s Forerunner 405 monitors your time, distance, pace, calories, and (when paired with an optional heart rate monitor) heart rate.

All of your runs are stored in memory, so you can keep track of how you’re improving or in some cases keeping steady.

The GPS receiver is robust enough to sustain satellite reception from a variety of urban and suburban locations.

Touch navigation

The touch bezel face of the watch makes navigating options simple and intuitive. Tap, hold, or run your finger along the bezel for instant results.

Connect to your computer

Garmin’s "ANT + Sport" connectivity system allows you to interface wirelessly to transfer data to your computer. You’ll be able to analyze, categorize and share through Garmin's online community, Garmin Connect or optional Garmin Training Center software. Wirelessly send workouts from your computer to Forerunner, too.

At $299, this isn’t a cheap training watch, but if you’re a serious runner or want to become one, or have a goal (like training for a marathon), this digital companion will help you make the most of your routines and reach your goals.

Price: $299 at Amazon.
