"In summary, the Garmin 305 has been a good investment and I have used it often. I have been pleased with the watch."rwestgat


Ease of installation

Installation was very easy. Suggestion: Keep the software updated.


Ease of use

Very easy to use. Tons of information and functions, but easy to use.


Quality of Construction

Very solid.



I was at 300lbs when I purchased the watch and it even fit me.



Once it is on you nearly forget you are wearing the heart monitor.



Very adjustable.



It seems very durable. I have had no problems so far.



The watch is a bit expensive, but well worth the money spent.



The watch is large and bulky, but the display is eary to read while running.



Performs very well. My only complaint is that it is not water proof and so I can not wear it during the swimming portions of triathlons.


The Garmin 305 gives a plethora of information and training functions.


The price is definately a weakness as well as the fact that the cadence monitor and bike attachment are all sold seperately. For that amount of money, one would expect the product to be complete. The lack of waterproofness makes the watch limited in the swimming portions of triathlons.
