garmin 405

Recommended Posts

same boat fellow 405 owners...also got the same quote from navicom (batt and bracelet replacement)...though my watch still works...but in training mode give or take 2-3 hours only at full charge and the audible beep on auto lap is not anymore "audible" so thinking of getting the Timex Global Trainer via Amazon (from a different thread)...

My replacement 405 is going to die on me again. Battery level shows 0% after 5 mins of run but the watch is going strong till i finish my run (1 hr later).

Hi, last year i bought the FR110 but after less than 3months start to have this battery problem. It only take less than a hour to fully charge, but on the training mode after 2hr the battery will gone dead. I email to garmin and they provide me an suggestion which is use AC adaptor to charge instead of USB. After fully charged, don't turn off the power leave it on for another hour. However this method don't work at all! So i bring it back to the shop that i bought at Sim Lim square and let them see the email from garmin. After 1 week, they give me a free replacement and the waranty will be on this replacement watch. So far, battery life no problem.

There is a Navicom booth at the ongoing IT show. $505 for the 410.

Navicom said that they are the official distributors. They said Perfect Watch is a parallel import. I checked the garmin.com website website. Only Navicom is listed.

i lost my garmin405 at sundown last week ):

do u guys think i should get another 405 or buy a 410?

I had both and I think the improvements on the touch bezel and the GPS fix are worthy upgrades.

Oh! And the new chest strap is very comfortable. A good upgrade too.

Nothing more than 3.5 hrs after 1 yr. For bike ride, i will carry a spare batt to charge it during drink breaks.
