I got mine today via Direct Web Retail, and it too came with the european plug... quick trip at lunchtime to Sainbury's for a 74p shaving adaptor, and it seems to have done the trick (it's on charge under my desk as we speak). It's charged up fine and allowed me to have a play with it. The bezel is very nifty.
Can definitely recommend Direct Web Retail as well. Ordered yesterday lunchtime, arrive this morning - free p&p using Parcelforce 24 hour service. Also emailed them about the plug problem and they came back to me really quickly.
I've been setting the alerts via the unit. I do not use Garmin Training Centre at all (instead use SportTracks). Not sure what is going on really... I've gone through all the settings on the wrist unit but can't find anything that may be conflicting with the pace alert settings. I'm getting used to it, and end up looking at my wrist unit anyway when I'm doing some specific training.
Has anyone had problems with the alerts element of the Garmin FR305? I've found that I set my alert for fast and slow pace... only to go back in and find that they have changed from what I set them to!! An example:
I set fast pace to 6'57" and slow pace to 7'27". Go back in and find that the fast pace is 6'37" and the slow pace is still 7'27"... I'm confused as to what is going on!
End of the day they are only alerts and I use current pace (which I know isn't great) and the current lap pace which I usually have set to auto-lap at mile intervals. It's just annoying that for some reason it's playing funny buggers.
Anyone experienced this, know why it's doing it or know of a solution?
