Garmin Forerunner 305 Review

garmin forerunner 205 305 preview

SurfSki.info has posted a review of the Garmin Forerunner 305 and reports:

The unit really looks the part of a new generation – the case feels far more robust and the screen has a far higher resolution than that of the 301.

The heart rate monitor strap also has the appearance of much better quality; it’s softer and more comfortable too.

Almost every aspect of the unit has been improved. Major changes are:

    The positioning and sensitivity of the antenna. The unit is designed for runners and the antenna is placed at an angle below the screen so that it faces upwards when worn on a runner’s wrist. Of course when you mount the unit on a surf ski, the antenna faces the floor. But this didn’t seem affect reception on the two occasions that I tried it.
    Removal of the USB port.
    The addition of “Course” functionality that allows you to record a particular downwind run for example and to compare subsequent runs against it (or against each other).
