Ask Garmin: Forerunner 405 or Forerunner 305


Forerunner305cropFr405greencrop Anticipating the release of the Forerunner 405 at the Boston Marathon, an e-mailer asks "What’s the difference between the Garmin Forerunner 305 and 405?" Aside from the specs on our "click-and-compare" table, the two biggest differences with the 405 are the innovative touch bezel and the wireless data transfer. The touch-sensitive bezel controls the bulk of the functions while making the 405 look more like an everyday watch. The wireless transfer is easy to use when sharing data unit-to-unit, and any new data automatically downloads when you’re within range of your PC’s ANT receiver.

Available in a multi-sport bundle that maximizes its potential for duathletes and triathletes, the Forerunner 305’s power, versatility and reliability have made it a must-have training tool. So it’s hard to go wrong. Runner’s World UK discusses some of the differences in their thorough 405 review, and Robin Adams, a New York sports anchor and fitness nut, just blogged about using a Forerunner in marathon training and said "Garmin is the way to go!"
