Garmin 405 - Buy Local!

Recommended Posts

if u do a compare..

https://buy.garmin.com/shop/compare.do?cID=...pareProduct=349

u can see the 305 is a multisport device... whereby the 405 is mostly a running device....

Many thanks :)

405 more suited for me. But, got to think hard, hard, hard, hard about buying it. Wished it was S$405 for the Forerunner 405 :rolleyes:

kcslchin,

my very initial interface with the 405 tells me it will be worth your $460....Just Get It :)

acidburn in fact has brought it for i-runs at River Promenade, and International Business Park....very accurate. I will try it at the other I-Run in CBP to help me determine actual 3km, 5km, 10km distances. Will feedback once I use the 405 sufficiently.

I also gotta the 405 from Perfect watch. Went for a run with the watch yesterday.

Found that it was quite heavy as compared to my previous Polar rs200.

Does anyone know where to get the latest Singapore Map?

The GTC software is showing the outdated map.

All Forerunner 405 owners, Garmin has just released a new firmware version 2.30. Please do update into your device.

Changes made from version 2.20 to 2.30:

1) Increased trackpoint resolution when turning or changing speeds.

2) Fixed issue where low or zero speed could be recorded at turns.

3) Fixed issue where poor GPS reception could cause an incorrect distance in the track log.

4) Updated translations.

5) Changes to support manufacturing.

Great stuff man. thx.

Somethings I noticed when trying out my 405 over the weekend:

1. a "clicking" sound when running, like something loose inside it. Is this usual ?

2. the strap near the watch face is not flexible enough to go round my small wrist and is painful after a 90min run. Anyone has an idea to ease the pain ?

1) I do not have that kind of sound you mentioned. Maybe you can join the Pacer Training, and can compared and listen together.

2) The 405 base is much longer, and makes the flexible strip longer also. This makes it loose for those with smaller wrist, especially the ladies. And it doesn't comes with a short strip like the 205 or 305. What I can think of is try wearing on your right wrist as your right tends to be bigger than your left. Or you can wear a wrist band below it.

So you re-calibrated for your tempo strikes is it? And if normal strikes, you have to re-calibrate it again is it?

    • 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!
