garmin 405

Recommended Posts

That was so true yesterday @ the GE30, I am so glad that I was wearing the Garmin cuz there was so few distance markers. Without the watch, think I will just keep running and don't know what is the distance I've ran so far and what is the distance left. This is important as you know when to reserve your energy and when to start picking up pace. And also to tell me that am I running at a too fast or too slow pace.

When there was a lack of distance markers at the GE30km yesterday, so many runners must have wished they had a Garmin....a few runners asked me for distance and timings (maybe they were thinking I was also a Pacer yesterday...hehe).

With the Garmin, I didn't even have to look at the distance markers, and did have a light unfair advantage lah....haha

The GPS has an error of +/- 100m deliberately added by the US government.

The 100m error was due to Selective Availability, which was already turned off in 2000. Now the accuracy is 3-5m in clear view.

Can the 405 be used for Triathlon? Heard that the bezel will not function when its wet, such that during activity you'll not be able to change certain settings/views. Considering the Garmin 405 or the Suunto T6C for multisports use. Thank you!

405 not good for swimming...

can cycle and run...

For 405, it is not easy to change from bike mode to run mode during transition... Unless you really sit down and scroll thru the menus.

Thank you for the feedback!!

The 405 seems like a perfect gadget to have but not too perfect for swimming & cycling. Even if use entirely for running, if sweat or rain falls onto the bezel, it might have problem with the bezel.

Thanks!

For me, I don't feel a problem at all if the bezel is wet cuz I won't touch it till the training/event is over. I don't change the settings/views once I started it.

Press and hold the 2 buttons on the right of the watch. This will force it to reset.

Have a questions? How do I turn off the watch?

Don't seen to have an off button in sight. It just goes on stand-by mode.

Thank you in advance.

Cheers

Hi Deerbike, u can't turn it off. The standby mode battery life is preety long and efficient even after u log 1-2 hour runs.

Dreamrunner,

You can get them at PerfectWatch in SimLim Square. They have the HRM for about $60 (from memory, so might be off on the price).

Perfect Watch is on the ground floor. They have a lot of Garmin products there.

Good luck.
