True Running Editors’ Review>


I lost my Garmin Forerunner!!! I’m so fustrated because I can’t find it.  The Garmin was an important part of my workouts.  I used it everywhere I went.  I used it for spinning, hiking,  swimming, ultimate, snowboarding and of course running.   It stored 40 hours of full run history and data in my watch.  I didn’t even get to upload my run data before I lost it!  So, anyways, you should upload your data frequently.  The old run data is automatically deleted when memory is needed to store data for new runs.   The reception in the suburbs is great.  I had no problems when running on trails.  The only problem was when I was in the city and surrounded by a lot of buildings did I have problems catching a signal.   It’s a great training tool.  The Forerunner 305 shows pace, distance, calories, and heart rate all while running.   It’s a definite buy for serious runners.  So this post is for myself and for you if you are looking to buy the Garmin Forerunner 305.  I did some research on prices and will keep the post updated if I find any great deals.
