    2 out of 5 stars   First watch was broken, second worked
    By Dan (Palo Alto, CA) May 17, 2013
    Review submitted for Garmin Forerunner 405 GPS-Enabled Sports Watch - Refurbished 1 Year Warranty (GRFR405KRB)
    Verified Purchaser
    Pros:
    Cons:
    Other Comments: I had to buy this item twice as the first one was defective. When I buy a refurbished unit I usually feel comfortable knowing that a knowledgeable person took the time to fix it and test it to make sure it works. In this case, I felt like the company must get a lot of returns and instead of actually fixing them, they just send them out a second time to see if they're returned again... must be cheaper than actually having someone take the time to test it. I do like the watch, but I'm pretty unhappy that I and others have gotten non functional units (if you read some forums on deal sites others report the same thing)

    5 out of 5 stars   Great Product, Mediocre Web Site, Spam
    By neogodless (Hershey, PA) May 17, 2013
    Review submitted for Garmin Forerunner 405 GPS-Enabled Sports Watch w/ Heart Rate Monitor - Factory Refurb. (GRFR405GRB)
    Verified Purchaser
    Pros: Versatile, Uniquely Green, Light
    Cons: Garmincom Account Issues, Touch Bezel Confusion, Unfashionable Chest Strap
    Other Comments: I've only used the watch a couple times. I was able to sync my information online, but there are some issues with the web site. I had an existing Garmin account from updating my GPS, and in theory you can re-use that on "Connect" but instead my account got locked out and I ended up creating a new one with a different e-mail address. The map functions only seem to function in Chrome some of the time. Some pages do not work at all and you may be forced to use a different web browser.

    By Larry the Zombie Re-killer (Ashland MA) June 03, 2012
    Review submitted for Garmin Forerunner 405 GPS Enabled Sports Watch w/ USB ANT Stick & HRM (Green) (GRFR405HRMG)
    Verified Purchaser
    Pros: Quick Navigation, Intuitive Menu, Quick Signal, Extensive Base Map, Reliable Reception, Simple Controls, Large Screen
    Cons: Color
    Other Comments: I use this gps watch to help improvement my running. There are a lot of features and it's easy to learn the basics and a bit beyond. After a couple weeks, I'm finally learning how to use the Virtual Partner to its full (I hope) potential. I'm going to guess that GPS accuracy is 10 to 15 feet. Pretty good but of course I'd like something closer 1 foot.

    By Il imperiestro (Houston, Texas) August 11, 2011
    Review submitted for Garmin Forerunner 405 Wireless GPS-Enabled Sports Watch with Heart Rate Monitor (GRFR405HRMK)
    Verified Purchaser
    Pros: Accurate, Reliable Reception, Intuitive Menu
    Cons:
    Other Comments: I was searching for an outdoor watch/GPS-system that could motivate me to go out running. The features of the Forerunner 405 do just that. I created my own set of workouts to practice within a chosen heartbeatzone, speedzone or just against a virtual partner. Even when going for a simple slow distance run, I set up the FR405 to compare my run with a previous practice run. That way I'm motivated to hold my pace. The link with garmin connect is a very nice bonus to get an idea of where you ran and even to get an idea of where other sportsmen are doing their workouts within the area. I like to review my practices within the Training Center though. There you get a nice overview of how you did on your run. To be short, I adore the FR405 and am looking forward to using it a lot the next coming years.

I have had no problems with the bezel and charge it after every third run, so about once a week. So far....I love it! Its a great motivator and help in my training to run 10 Miles.

I just still haven't been able to figure out how to fully program it yet because the manual doesn't help there.
