Peg’s Posts: Forerunner 405 – an array of displays


405time405trainingA blog reader recently asked to see more screen shots of the Forerunner 405. Kudos to Garmin’s engineering team for making the 405 such an intuitive training device with screens that are as beautiful as they are functional. The far left screen is the training page. You can set up two additional training “pages” and you can scroll through with a tap to the watch bezel. You can also choose up to three data fields to customize each training page. There are over 30 types of data you can display. We’re talking way more than distance, pace, elevation and calories. You can also view GPS accuracy, grade, lap distance, heart rate average, zone, % max and more. The next screen shown here is the Virtual Partner, which gives you a virtual competitor for every training run. You pick your goal pace, then see how you match up to the VP.

The last screen shown here is the navigation page. Since the 405 is GPS-enabled, it has some basic navigation capabilities, including a feature that guides you back to your starting point. Nice for when you strike out on a run in a new city or if you like to “run outside the lines” once in awhile.

Many of our faithful blog readers have asked when they can get their hands on the 405. A: very soon. Units should be hitting speciality running stores just after the Boston Marathon, April 21.
