Forerunner 405 GPS-enabled Sport WatchDuring a run, this slim, sleek watch accurately tracks distance, pace, heart rate (when paired with heart rate monitor) and calories, and displays it all on the easy-to-read screen. Tap or slide a finger around the innovative touch bezel to change information without fumbling for a button. The optional foot pod can also be used to gather speed and distance information indoors. ANT+Sport wireless technology automatically transfers workout data to and from your computer when your device is within range. No cables, no hookups, the data's just there. Users can upload data to Garmin Connect, a new web-based application that lets them analyze, share and store workouts. USB ANT StickOne of Garmin's most ambitious decisions has been to approach fitness devices as a total platform with their "ANT + Sport" connectivity system. All of Garmin's new fitness devices, including the Forerunner 405, Edge 605 and 705 bike computers, and Forerunner 50 heart rate monitor watches, will interface wirelessly with any devices that are compatible wiht the "ANT + Sport" protocol, including devices from other manufacturers.
Once you've logged the miles, the ANT + Sport wireless technology automatically transfers data to your computer when the Forerunner is in range. No cables, no hookups. The data's just there, ready for you to analyze, categorize and share through Garmin's online community, Garmin Connect or optional Garmin Training Center software. You can wirelessly send workouts from your computer to Forerunner, too.

Comments about Garmin Forerunner 405 GPS Enabled Sports Watch w/ USB ANT Stick & HRM (Green):
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love my new Garmin watch! It has already helped me to shave time off my 5k and 10k runs! I would recommend it to anyone. A little tricky learning to use the bezel but other than that it is great!!
