Great price! Been waiting for them to drop again, ordered 1. Thanks!!
#2
Thanks OP!
#3
great device - great price
#4
I own one and can confirm these are great. Brilliant price, cheapest I've seen in a while.
#5
Was £95 about a week and a half ago...
#6
just ordered one..
#7
It's been around th £100 mark for a while but a good watch, I've had mine for years.
#8
Mega price. I swear by mine. I want the new shiny 610, but can't justify spending £300+ on something that is basically a touch screen version of this.
#9
Tanx v much for this, been waiting for it to go back below £100..
#10
Agh - I keep thinking about this but I have a £400 Oregon 450 already that records my HR and Cadence. However it does not let you set zones for HRM or Cadence and is useless on the indoor trainer.

Very tempted once again!
#11
I've never heard of it? So its basically a GPS watch to monitor heart rate and distances? can anyone share why they're so good? I like the look of them
#12
I really want it, but have already bought a tablet this month so can't really justify spending more money :(

For those who have one, can you upload routes so it'll show you where to go next?
#13
Gone up 36p - showing as £97.80 now.

Yep...takes a little working out, but I managed it...just export the route from mapmyrun or similar and import it onto the watch (can't remember the software I used off the top of my head...sure it's only a google away, though...) You can also race your "ghost" around routes that you've already done, which is pretty cool, I think.

In terms of why *I* think it's so good, I like knowing exactly how far I've run, I like knowing exactly how fast I'm running at a given point...It makes it much easier to map your routes after you've done them (saves clicking around maps for hours..especially for longer cycle routes), it beeps regularly, so I know each time I tick off a mile, it's got a pointer to show you the way home...and it gives you a nice breakdown after a run of your pace each mile. If you're serious about running or cycling, I think this is a bargain. (I've only got the 205, mind, so no HR or cadence...)
#15
Its 91.05+4.50 P&P at Amazone marketplace (comes up as default buy option when you do a search)
#16
Great price. Just got the 110 inc HRM for my wifes birthday for £137, anyone know how these compare please to see if i need to swap??
#17
They look and sound great. Not voting though as I can't justify 100 spend on such a gadget.
#18
Given the choice I would go with the older 305 over the new 110 - Depends what you want to use it for though as the wife probably would prefer the 110 for size and looks. The 305 has way more functions tho but is pretty big. (more comparable to a 210 but thats £199)

I swear by my 305 because it offers very accurate GPS tracking of my runs, cycle rides or mountain walking. I've tried Nike sportbands, iPhone apps and various other alternatives and none of them come close to the 305 in terms of distance and pace accuracy.

The very large display gives immediate current pace/distance/time and although fairly large in size, the unit is light and you can't really feel it on your wrist. I also love the training modes, including the one where you can program in your goals (e.g. do a 10K in 45 minutes) and it will give you a virtual partner and show you graphically how far ahead or behind you are as you are running.

The heart monitor is an added bonus but must admit I haven't used it too much. I like the Garmin website where you can upload your data to and see routes overlayed on google maps, share routes, look at height gained etc etc.

Basically it does a ton of stuff in a nice wrist unit and I wear it every time I go out for a run. Good price for a good product.
#20
Any reason why the Amzon price is listed when the default supplier is cheaper? (ie. tell me why its not worth me saving a few quid on using the other one)
#21
I've had mine for 3 years now, its a great watch - I've downloaded running schedules aswell (very handy) http://www.runnersworld.co.uk/racing/rw-garmin-ready-10k-schedule-sub-4500/3573.html
#22
great deal - I have one and used it for running and cycling. Heart rate monitor is a good addition and allows you to set zones to control your pulse.
I wouldn't use it as a GPS device to find your way round as it won't do that, but you can set a course and then chase yourself which is cool.
Doesn't look too big on wrist but is bigger than the latest and greatest but I've never lost a signal with it.

Wont the **** fall out of this market due to smart phone apps emulating the same thing and being more useable at the same time?

When I go right through to checkout with the marketplace deal, it actually works out dearer than the Amazon one.

Great piece of kit with lots of use beyond running. Excellent support from Garmin too.

Only if you think a phone running GPS will actually last any length of time and be as easy to use wearing on your wrist... :)

I got the 610 recently at full price for the early adopter - apart from the fact it is an ugly thing (though lots more subtle than the 305!) it is a great watch. I was just about to order the 410 and noticed there was a new one for more than £100 more - I'm such a mug but couldn't resist. I don't regret it now though :)

Only two gripes: it doesn't have graphs! You can see them all on your computer, but wish there was more visual toys built in. The other is a known bug which throws the GPS out and screws the max speed when you pause and un-pause so you have to use the auto pause - I imagine these will be fixed in a future firmware update.

The smartphone apps are nothing on the Garmin Forerunners.

Are people still using Sport tracks with their garmins, I have been lazy about running and downloading stats. I see that it's no longer free.

WTF is that??? Garmin Connect - Free and looks to do most of the same stuff

Not quite yet.

I've been through some fairly muddy courses using the garmin, the chances of me taking my iPhone on those routes is slim to none.

Oh decisions, decisions...! Do I put up with using my iPhone/Runkeeper giving me a 90% accurate map of where I have been or get this but still end up taking my iPhone out to listen to tunes...!!

You want this and a Sansa Clip :)

Sold...!!

My brother sold his 305 to try out the 110 and couldn't get on with it. Too basic, losing satellites when it goes into power saving mode just before a race, and didn't give his average pace for the whole run, only the last mile. He has now sold the 110 and bought a 205 which is the same as this but without the HRM.

With a Garmin wrist device, you simply turn your wrist 45 degrees glance down and you clearly see your pace/distance/time. You also get audible alerts. When using an iPhone, you would have to carry this in your hands or have a see through wrist holder or something. Even the apps that talk to you through headphones only do this at certain intervals or when you press a button.

The battery life far exceeds that of a smartphone. I can charge my 305 and get about 8-10 x 1hr runs out of it before it runs out.

Its waterproof and sweatproof. I've had mine out in torrential rain and through all sorts of terrain in races and its never once complained. I wouldn't fancy taking a smartphone out in some of the rain I run in.

I think smartphone apps do have advantages - one is they are cheap and another is they provide a lot of good graphical feedback in one device (with the 305, you have to plug into your computer to do some of this). However, weighing everything up, for a regular runner you can't beat a Forerunner in my humble opinion.
#38
Remember guys - the HRM on this doesn't use your heart rate to work out calories burnt, so it won't be as accurate as others... but a great GPS watch!

Bought one last year for £95, good bit of kit.

Would you say the 610 is much better than the 405 as im looking at that its £170 on amazon
