GREAT VALUE GPS/HEART RATE MONITOR

Accurate GPS watch and heart rate monitor. Compatible with ANT+ wireless kit. Easy data transfer and superb training functions. Good for multisport activities.
Large watch, can take a few minutes to locate sattelites.
A brilliant watch with excellent training and monitoring features. With it's low price, compared to some units, this watch is a bargain!

WORKS GREAT & LOTS OF INFO

Big, easy to read screen. There is plenty of information to see how your run is going.
Quite big for smaller wrists, which is why I wear mine upside down (screen at the bottom).
Great piece of kit. It is as essential to my running as my shoes. use it every time.

AMAZING PIECE OF KIT, BUT IT IS HUGE!

- Less bugs than FR 405
- GPS Device
- Possible to use Foot Pod and Cadence Sensor
- Cheaper than 405/310XT
- Easy to use
- It really is HUGE!
- No waterproof
- No wireless data transfer
An amazing piece of kit, easy to use and very good value for money. The only complaint is regarding its size, which makes it not really feasible to wear it as a normal watch.

GREAT PIECE OF KIT

Easy to use out of the box; GPS locator v reliable so far even under trees; training software provides masses of useful data. Love plotting runs on Google Earth!
None after two weeks of use; though taking some time to pick through all of the available functions.
Fab value at today's prices (currently new on Amazon at £144).

Wouldn't want to be without it. Bought my 305 in August to relpace my old Forerunner 201 which had become unreliable. In comparison the 305 works like a dream.
