I wish Garmin would keep the same style but get rid of the Bezel.
Scott Morris
Not if it took me 7:30 with an average HR of 178, or if I dawdled along and did it in 18:00 minutes @ 107 BPM, it was 103 kCal.

I have the foot pod and heart rate monitor as well, and they are great.

This is the first review, ever, I have written about a product but I am so happy with it that I want to encourage others to buy it.

I bought the Garmin Forerunner 405 package (watch, USB connector and Heart rate monitor (HRM)) in July 2009 and it is one of the best purchases I've ever made.

At the time, I had just committed to yet another attempt to get in better shape and thought being able to track my runs (distance, time and HRM) would be an effective way to keep myself motivated. I'm a nerd when it comes to gadgets and I love keeping track of everything (e.g. I love MS Money) so this watch was just perfect for me.

Here are some cools things about the watch that I am particularly happy about:
1) the HRM (which you snap around your chest): starting from the poor shape I was in, it really helped having something in addition to the time and distance of each workout: while I kept running at a slow pace and at the same speed, I could quickly see progress in terms of a lower HR.

2) the fact that my runs gets imported into Google earth. After each run, all I need to do is approach my desktop and the watch starts sending the details of the run (speed, GPS locations, time etc) to the computer. Thereafter, a neat little program shows me the run (speed, HR etc) in Google earth.

3) it allows you to "lock in" the GPS location of a particular spot and then use that as a guide to find your way back. I use this when I travel. Upon arriving at a new hotel (in a new city), I lock in the hotel's location. The watch then has a feature called "go to location" that will guide you back to a particular location you have stored (i.e. it brings up a little compass that will guide you back to the hotel from whereever you might end up later in the day).

Verified Purchase
I purchased this monitor while I was stationed at FOB Warhorse in Iraq. My intent for the watch as two-fold, 1) I wanted an easy way to keep track of where I had been during dismounted patrols and 2) to replace my aging and dying Polar RS200sd heart rate monitor.

The Garmin Forerunner 405 (with Foot Pod!) is very good at what it does, which is keep track of where you were, how fast you went, and roll all that up into a neat little software package that lets you do a virtual tour of it all. Very cool. Just not very practical. The GPS information (i.e. location and altitude) is not displayed on the monitor. You can get heart rate, speed, average speed, average HR, etc but no location information. You also can't easily get that once you've downloaded the data to your computer (you have to get pretty clever with Google maps to make that happen). It takes a bit for to get a decent satellite lock, but once it does it has no issues with tracking. As a GPS device, this monitor is rather lacking. Don't misunderstand it does keep track of where you are and what you are doing, it is just impossible to figure it out while you are doing it. Its not like a dedicated GPS that you glance at and know where you are and where you've been.

But wait! Its not a GPS device, its Heart Rate Monitor! It says so right in the title! And yes it does that! But it doesn't do anything with the information it tracks. Its programming is based upon your age, weight, height, and...distance traveled. Heart rate doesn't play into its calculations at all, or if it does it plays such a limited role that in my four months of using it I never once varied from burning 103 kCal per mile traveled.

I bought this and noticed that the mail in rebate coupon was not included. Contacted the seller, who never replied. Quite disappointed about that.

The Garmin Forerunner is great for running & biking - unfortunately cannot be used while swimming unlike the Suunto and Polar. It takes some getting used to - it took me two weeks to finally get the hang of it - but it really does improve your training in terms of monitoring pace and distance. Was on the fence about order the bundle (foot pod and HR monitor) but am very glad I did - very useful for the gym for spinning and treadmill workouts.

One downside - the battery lasts only about 8 hours. Sometimes the ANT agent takes a while to connect to the forerunner to upload data to the computer.

Overall am happy with it.

The watch is an excellent all-around training device that can be used across many sports. I found more use for it than I intended. I like the web facilities and how it let's me analyze every second of my runs.

Too bad the Footpods and the HR Monitors seem to come with battery problems. I had to send mine back to Garmin for replacement as the accessories just wouldn't pair. They sent me a replacement and this time the HR Monitor paired in a second and the footpod is yet another bad one even from the box. I hope replacement #3 works. But the watch itself is awesome.

The retailer I bought the product from HRM were very prompt in their delivery and are willing to support; but Garmin kind of undermines their efforts with the browning HR monitors and footpod.
