Features of Garmin Forerunner 305 GPS sports watches.
The garmin has about ever feature offered, Pace /speed, elevation, heartrate( with HR Strap), cadence (for bike, with cadence sensor), distance, distance on tread mill (with foot pod), calories (although only estimated), sun down, route finding, course, virtual running partner, Workout scheduler ( I use this all the time on bike workouts), auto mile laps, alerts for distance, time, heart rate and speed. A great history tool.
Battery Life of Garmin Forerunner 305
The battery is only good for up to 10 hours… that is the downside. It is a little large on the wrist. They are expensive $350 and up, but if you don’t want the Heart rate function (which I recomend) get the forerunner 301. Or the older version the 201 on ebay…I’ve seen them go for $100 New with tags.
