Best Training Partner on the Market
I bought this to help improve my run times. The main feature I use is the automatic "runner" who paces you at the pace that you set. It makes it easy to look down and see, visually, if I am ahead or behind my "training partner." The reason I gave it 3/5 stars for "Ease of Use" is because it does take a bit of time and effort to get the Ant+ Agent (a USB stick) to work with both your computer AND get it sync'ed with the Garmin website. However there are instructions provided, it's not THAT hard, and once it's done you have an amazing record of your workouts and continued motivation to improve. Overall it is a great tool. I don't use the HR monitor strap, but I did try it out and it worked perfectly. I tried the Suunto model that is similar (belonging to a friend) and they are very closely aligned in functionality, but the Garmin was easier to sync with my computer and once sync'ed, it works flawlessly every time. The Suunto model took a little more patience, but still worked pretty well. If you have the $$ to spend on the Garmin 405, I say get it. If you are female and don't want the lime green version, go ahead and get the black men's version because the strap fits me, and I have very small wrists. Also you can buy a shorter black strap FROM GARMIN and it will fit the smallest of wrists. Don't even try to replace the strap with something else- the antenna is in the strap. *NOTE* My friend also has a 405 and it stops working well when she sweats a lot and the back gets wet. To keep it working despite her sweaty wrist, she simply puts a small strip of packing tape over the back of the watch and the problem was solved. Read full review

Great watch for training!
I'm in love with my garmin 405. When I first got it, I was hesitant that I would like it since it felt somewhat bulky on my wrist, but after a few runs I don't notice it anymore. I attribute this mostly to not being a watch wearer, but the band is pretty much solid around the top half of the watch. Through some unusual circumstances, I also had a garmin 210 for a little over a week. Comparing the two, the fit of the 210 is much nicer than the 405, and it's nice to have 4 hard buttons vs 2 buttons and a touch bezel. I also felt more comfortable wearing the 210 as a normal watch, and found myself doing so and liking it quite a bit...With that said, the features of the 210 are really lacking for being at the same price point as the 405. The main deal breaker for me is not being able to customize your screens on the 210. While the default configuration is probably the one that 90% of people will use, it seems like an easy enough addition to allow for different field choices. This is where the 405 excels. Things that the 405 doesn't do well: -don't expect to be fiddling with it while running or biking. The touch bezel is too finicky for this. Is fine when your not moving (and preferably not sweatting or wet). Best advice I can give is to use the middle of your finger instead of the pad in the bezel, it seems to respond better to that, at least for me. -I don't like that half the face of the watch is reserved for the garmin logo. They should be using all these pixels for displaying the information bigger. The secondary fields can be hard to read while glancing at your watch while running (the 210 was much better with this) Things that I found I really liked, especially in comparison to the 210: -the ant stick...at first I thought this was a terrible idea, since the USB charger is only for power and not for data. However, Ive grown to love it since I don't have to plug my garmin into anything when I get done with a run, just put it by my computer and it will automatically sync with garmin connect. -the charger vs the 210 charger. I found it really difficult to get the 210 charger aligned with its 4 contact points. This made it frustrating when charging and trying to get it to sync. The 405 charger is much easier to align and the ant stick makes it so if I'm in a hurry and need to sync my run I don't have to fiddle with getting the contacts of a charger lined up. Also, I typically want to sync my runs right away and I would recommend letting your watch dry out completely before putting a charger on it, or else youll see your contacts corroding (210 users beware!). All-in-all, like I said, I love my 405. Coming from an iPhone runmeter junkie to a gps watch was awesome and I wish I had done it sooner. Its much easier to push myself to accomplish new goals with this on my wrist. Read full review

Bottom line is that it does what I wanted it to do. It tracks my time and distance. Satellite connection kicked off before the end of a run a couple of times, but that may have to do with where I live. Even with battery saving mode that kicks in if you leave GPS on it will drain and it does not sink with computer if it's not pretty well charged. The difficulty in getting it to sink has been my biggest Grrr! There are other features that I really haven't messed with much and I did not get not get the heart monitor that can you can get with it.
