Garmin 405 - Buy Local!

Recommended Posts

what is the battery life of the 405?

If fully charge 100% with GPS on and running, it will last for about 6-8 hrs, but if you just use it as watch (not running) it will last for about 3-4 days base on my 3 mths usage :)

Ok, thanks all! Mine also don't have. Thought maybe I am the only one don't have. But this is weird, US sets is having a different firmware version?

Those bought online from the states, can verified whether you have the battery icon?

just got mine at $460 as well from Perfect Watch. Think they have no more stock for this weekend. Better call before going down.

You can probably buy the HRM for $80.

OK guys, this is the deal. At Merdeka, no more stock. At Hoan, $550 with HRM, $475 without HRM, discount of only $2 per piece for 5-6 pieces. At All Bright, no more stock. At Perfect, $540 with HRM, $470 without HRM and no discount for 5-6 pieces. So, looks like we'll have to get it from Perfect at SLS, and since no discount might as well go individually and buy. I don't know if I should wait for the MAC version due next month.

halo cruiser, you mean there's a Mac version for garmin 405? urm, so if i buy the current version and i only have Mac Book at home, i can't connect to the notebook? :/

Yup! The MAC version is due next month in the US, hopefully also in Sing. I've got an iMac, the mrs uses a pc, so i'm still ok with the pc version. But guys, listen to this! I BOUGHT MY GARMIN FR 405 TODAY! From Parisilk at Holland V, thay are authorized dealers too. I paid $524.30 ( it's $490 before GST). It comes with HRM. For guys looking for the 405 without HRM, am not sure as the 405 box has already got the HRM packed in it. This is the cheapest price for the FR 405 so far. They've got only 3 more pieces, all black. Good luck guys.

Got my Garmin 405 from PerfectWatch for $460. The friendly salesperson, Rick mentioned they have 18 pieces left (all black, but he will order some green ones if there is demand).

Will try it out soon.

:Confused: I'm confused. Is 405 or 305 better or has more features? Why does Garmin's website list the prices of 305 and 405 as below:

Forerunner 405: 297.01 USD

Forerunner 305: 299.99 USD

I checked with Parissilk too, and they quoted $457 (incl. GST)....however, you have to order and probably get the device in 2-3 days.
