Forerunners are Runner’s World favorites


Forerunner405blackhrFr405greencropWe gave Runner’s World a sneak peek of the Forerunner 405 in January while we were at CES in Las Vegas, putting in a hilly 10K that saw the Virtual Partner come out on top. Now that the Forerunner 405 is being snatched up in running stores, outdoor retailers and electronic shops everywhere, Sean Downey of Runner’s World calls the 405 "a slickly designed successor to one of my favorite training partners (the 305)." From the easily adjustable Virtual Partner (his "favorite feature") to the high-sensitivity GPS receiver’s quick acquisition time ("The most I’ve waited with the 405 was 30 seconds."), you can read Sean’s review here and see our tutorial videos here.

Armed with ANT+Sport wireless technology, "Garmin’s compact sports watch is easy to use and simple to download to your computer," Runner’s World UK writes. "You can upgrade it to a wireless heart rate monitor and speed and distance monitor and it’s still excellent value."
