Form meets function with the Garmin GPS high-performance forerunner 305 personal GPS trainer - the Forerunner 305, 405 and 205. The Forerunner 305 includes a high sensitivity GPS receiver, new courses feature and robust wireless heart rate monitor for optimal performance.
Lock On to Satellite Signals
Forerunner 305 sports a unique design that wraps the GPS antenna around part of the wrist for a better view of the sky, and its high sensitivity GPS receiver provides improved tracking under trees and near tall buildings.
Forerunner 305 also sports a robust ANT+ wireless heart rate monitor with softer, more comfortable chest strap and superior battery life. It eliminates cross-talk with other devices to reliably measure and sends the heart monitoring data, and it helps you train in your optimal performance zone.
Take It to the Next Level
Forerunner 305s courses feature lets you compete against previous workouts: compare your pace and heart rate to your past performance over the same run.
Endurance Athlete Training with a Garmin GPS ? Triathlete ? Duathlete
Athletes can also use Forerunner 305 to train for your next duathlon or triathlon with multi-sport workouts, a feature that lets you seamlessly transition between sports without resetting the unit, so both novice and endurance athletes can use it for running, biking and more.
Garmin GPS Forerunner 305 Works With Endurance Athletes
Train indoors while tracking your distance, pace and calories burned with the optional Foot Pod accessory. This wireless sensor attaches to your running shoe so it can transmits distance and pace data to your Forerunner 305 so you can still use it when GPS reception is unavailable.
Get the Data You Need
The Garmin 305 is made so athletes can customize any of Forerunner 305s three main data screens - up to twelve data fields give you instant feedback on your workout.
As with every Forerunner, each workout is stored in memory so you can review and analyze the data and see how you?ve improved over time.
Track Athlete Training Progress
As an added benefit, it is possible to plan, analyze and store data from your workouts using free Garmin Training Center software, which lets you analyze data with interactive graphs that chart your pace, time, distance and heart rate. Overlay your run on a map to pinpoint specific areas. This helps athletes monitor how elevation and other factors affect your performance. Or, upload your workout data to MotionBased.com, Garmin's web-based application that provides in-depth analysis of your workouts, online mapping and route sharing that will take your training to the next level. Endurance athletes can also use the Garmin GPS Forerunner 305 and newer units with TrainingPeaks.com, an easy-to-use web-based training system designed to help athletes train for any event.
