In this article I am going to tell you some reasons to buy a Garmin Forerunner 305:
1. You won’t get lost because it has a GPS.
In a Garmin Forerunner 305 you can define a place towards you want the device to guide you. This feature is very useful when you go running to new places, through forests…
Once I got lost running through a forest and I just configured the Garmin Forerunner 305 in navigation mode and I was capable of going back to where I had started my journey. Truth to be told, this device is really useful.
2. It provides a lot of information
One of the most interesting features of this device takes place when you are back at home and analyze the data the sport watch got. The piece of software that comes with it is too simple. Most of the people I know get the program Sport Tracks. In order to use this program you need to have installed on your laptop the .NET package. That way you will impress your family and your friends with your statistics: how far you went, how fast you run, the height of the mountains you climb, the number of calories you consumed and so on. Everything in nice graphics you can print.
The device just works capturing the information of your heart while you are running, go cycling…
You can also design your complete training program and upload it to the garmin forerunner. It has a feature to program alarms if you are running too slow or too fast and if your heart is beating above the threshold you previously defined. I have recently downloaded a training routine from a website and I just do what the Garmin Forerunner 305 tells me. In this device you can store up to 50 routes.
In the Garmin Connect website you can also upload your data to see it graphically when you finish your training.
3. It has good connectivity features
Through its USB port you can copy your training data to your laptop
