For a session like the one tomorrow, my advice would be to press Start and every time you end an effort or a recovery, press Lap/reset.

Providing you don't have an unscheduled pause you'll end up with a good record of your session.

If you do have such a pause, delete that lap after you've downloaded the session to your computer.

That would be my advice at least but I'm sure others will have alternative suggestions.

Brilliant, thanks.

Oh - and press Start/stop at the end of your final recovery then press and hold Lap/reset for the three secs you'll see counting down on the watch.

That saves it into the memory.

Seriously considering one of these, done as much research as possible but would appreciate some friendly advice before I take the plunge.
1) Is the 405CX exactly the same as the 405 except with heart rate monitoring?
2) I've heard that the GPS signal isn't that reliable in forrested areas, is this the case?
3) Is it likely that the 405 will be updated in the near future as it's been out since 2008?
Thanks in advance

Spartacles, thanks for the advise, we did a slighly different session than normal last night after 5 weeks off with weather issues, 2 mins fast, 2 mins slow etc and has recorded all the data perfectly. Except in the case of user error when my brain was shot from being so knackered I forgot to start and stop my laps, but still recorded the splits. Love the oval red line showing the laps! Yep, I'm a Garmin saddo.
