Long runs, tempo runs, speed drills. You expect a lot from your body ...and from your training gear. Meet Forerunner 405. This GPS-enabled sport watch tracks your training, then wirelessly sends your data to your computer. The ultimate in training technology, its sleek design features a touch bezel that lets you quickly scroll and select features on the run.

Watch Results

Loaded with serious training features, Forerunner 405 continuously monitors your time, distance, pace, calories and heart rate (when paired with heart rate monitor). Each run is stored in memory so you can review and analyze the data to see how you've improved. You can even download recorded courses to compete against previous workouts or race a Virtual Partner. Customize Forerunner's data screens for instant feedback while you train.

Use with Ease

Sport watch and personal trainer - Forerunner 405 gives you the best of both worlds in a sleek, stylish package. This high performance watch is easy to use and comfortable to wear when not training. Simply tap the touch bezel to change screens without fumbling for a button.

Run, Sync, Store and Share

Once you've logged the miles, innovative ANT+™ wireless technology automatically transfers data to your computer when the Forerunner is in range. No cables, no hookups. The data's just there, ready for you to analyze, categorize and share through our online community, Garmin Connect or our optional Garmin Training Center software. You can wirelessly send workouts from your computer to Forerunner, too.

Share Wirelessly

With Forerunner 405 you can share your locations, advanced workouts and courses wirelessly with other Forerunner 405 users. Now you can send your favorite workout to your buddy to try, or compete against a friend's recorded course. Sharing data is easy. Just select "transfer" to send your information to nearby units.


Take your training inside with the versatile Forerunner 405. Pair it with an optional foot pod to track your speed, distance and running cadence indoors when a GPS signal is unavailable. This new design clips onto your laces for easy removal and automatically turns on when you start moving. You can also add a speed/cadence bike sensor to track the speed and distance of your cycling workouts.

Lock Onto Satellite Signals

Forerunner 405 sports a unique design that gives the GPS antenna a better view of the sky, so it can get a stronger signal during your run. And its high-sensitivity GPS receiver provides improved tracking under trees and near tall buildings.

Forerunner 405: Accelerate your training.

This item is refurbished or 'Newly Overhauled' direct from the Garmin factory.

What does refurbished mean? This is the answer direct from Garmin:
These are systems that have been returned to Garmin from either an end user or dealer that may or may not have been used. Many of the units Garmin gets back from their larger retailers are actually found to be working fine, but end users have returned them for any number of reasons. Whereas some units do come back with real failures. Garmin therefore takes all these units that come back, tests them out and, if necessary, does repairs to bring them back to "like new" status. Garmin also ensures they have the latest software update. These units are therefore as good as new, but since they have been in the field, cannot be sold as new. Garmin then offers them to their dealers at a discounted price and offers a full one year warranty, just as they do on new systems. These systems are not new, but are as good as new.

What's in the Box:

  • Forerunner 405
  • USB ANT+™ Stick and heart rate monitor
  • AC adapter
  • Charging clip
  • Owner's manual
  • Quick reference guide
  • Warranty 1 Year

Not sure September 25, 2012
Reviewer: Trischa Buseth from Spring Arbor, MI United States  
I am not sure this product is working in the way it should. I would think twice about ordering another refurbished item form this company again in the future.

Works Great August 23, 2012
Reviewer: Aubri from Utah, United States  
So far the watch is great.  It doesn't seem to have any trouble connecting to gps no matter where I am.  Battery life is ok, and it is a little hard to get used to but after a while I have adjusted and there is no problem  It is a great watch.
