garmin 405

Recommended Posts

yo folks ...

is the Mac version for Garmin 405 out yet? (yes i am one of those Mac user who don't use dual boot)

my Polar RS200SD footpod just die-ed on my last month ... after a good two or three years of use ...

so its probably time to get a new HRM watch ...

Cheers

Alex

http://www8.garmin.com/products/communicator/ - the communicator part is...

which means it should be able you to detect...

the rest.. not too sure..

The Garmin Training Center is Mac-compatible as well...

So u r definitely good to go.

I'm planning to get the forerunner 405. So should I get it from Sim Lim or is there any other places that I should look at ?

try motion sports at paragon, maybe not the cheapest, but i hate going to sim lim

Bought mine at EastGear last month as they were offering the best price. So far so good. Love to see my runs on Google Earth. However, the battery lasts less than the 8 hrs spec with GPS on. Even shorter if you use the GPS to topo back to a stored location.

Heard from a friend who heard from a friend ... that with the drop in Euro, the Garmin 405 is now selling at equivalent of S$200 - $300 in Europe. Anybody can confirm this?

anyone experience this problem? lately my garmin is going crazy on me.. for the last few runs, the distance and route is the same but the distance recorded is increasing.. now there's a difference of 200 to 300m for each run.. the pace even showed i'm running at 4 to 5min++/km sometimes.. i'm not a fast runner so normally my pace is like 6.30 or 6.40 min/km or the fastest 6min++/km.. this is crazy... don't tell me my garmin is dying on me.. :Praying:

Do a hard reset and see how it goes.

just wanted to ask...yesterday I did a morning LSD and as usual (for me...) around 5AM I get a hard time getting sat signal (I live around Woodlands area)...so what I did was let the watch search as I did warm up jog/walk...after that it went to the Training Mode so I thought it already acquired sat signal...after I stopped for about 1k and did stretching (in open air location...before Ave 12 - Seagate factory) I just found that the sat signal icon is still blinking "X" meaning it still hasn't got any sat signal...however the watch was reading the distance I have already travelled (I quite know the mileage of this route as I usually start around this path..) and it was showing correct distance...so I re-did the sat signal search and finally got a "correct" sat signal icon...so off I did with my run...

however, as I uploaded the data just now in Garmin Connect website...the Dashboard will show the lap splits (auto lap mode) and everything (i.e. HR, distance, pace) but it did not show the graphs, maps, elevation details...

I just did the hard reset now...and will test for a short run tomorrow early morning before work but just wondering....

Mine too. Sometimes I get so pissed just let it run by itself. lol. I ran 7km, it says 7.8km. Another time 7km, it says 6km :LMAO: .

Maybe reception is not good.

I guess we have to use it often. Last time i never have this problem when I ran frequently.

The Forerunner 405CX is the evolution of GPS-enabled training. This sleek sport watch tracks your distance, pace and heart rate, then wirelessly sends the data to your PC for later analysis. The 405CX features heart rate-based calorie computation and comes with a second wrist band option suitable for smaller wrists.

Calling brokie......

In Singapore, I never get so much error with my 305. I believe the 405 and 305 has the same chipset. Maybe the 405 tradeoff a good antenna for a better looking shape therefore, more likely to have error.

I have the 101, 205 before, and now the 405. Locking on to the satallite by 405 is definitely faster than 101 and 205. Distance clocked by all 3 models is pretty accurate. The functions is more or less the same for all 3 models as well. Except that the 405 can display only 3 data fields in one single screen.

But Garmin had overcome this by designing the 405 to be able to auto scroll to another screen which able to display another 3 data fields. A total of 3 different screen can be scroll with a total of 9 data fields. And the scrolling speed can be set as well, which I think is quite thoughtful by Garmin.

    • Thanks for the update bro! Now I can mark my calendar.
    • Mayor says coronavirus should not affect Boston Marathon (info extracted: mybestruns.com)     The Boston Marathon has never been canceled or postponed in its 122-year history, although it was stopped in 2013 after two bombs were detonated near the finish.  The Boston Marathon had never been canceled or postponed, even by snow squalls in 1925, 1961, and 1967, sleet in 1907, or 100-degree heat in 1905.
    • Thanks @lonewolf, SRY is "fighting" an uphill battle against pending lawsuits. Seems like he is determined to "correct" the wrongs on accusation with the "right" facts. Let's see how the events unfold, legally. SRY is an inspired athlete for all,  battle against vs The Rest of the World on his plans on breaking his own PBs. Again, we report facts, and we let the Courts decide on the legal verdicts. Just enjoy SRY's journey against all odds.
    • I originally started this thread to discuss SRY's omission from the 2019 SEA Games. But since that event has long past and the thread has taken a new life on its own, I have changed the Title of the thread to correctly reflect the current situation - Soh Rui Yong vs The Rest of the World : ) Thanks for the update, Uncle!
