Unlike conventional sports watches, the Garmin Forerunner 405 GPS Watch keeps track of location data in addition to the traditional parameters like distance, speed, time and heart rate. This is particularly helpful for athletes and trainers as it gives them unparalleled power to figure out where the performance was good and where it wasn't. For instance, a long distance runner can map out the zones according to performance and tweak his performance keeping in mind the feedback from previous exploits in the same route. This sport watch helps you track long runs, tempo runs and speed drills among other routines. It continuously monitors speed, distance covered, and the calories burnt in each session. Each run and each episode of training is stored in memory which could be evaluated later whenever you want.
Equipped with a touch bezel, the wireless sports watch facilitates effortless on-screen navigation. The touch bezel locks and unlocks easily to prevent accidental touch operation while in training. Also, the watch combines GPS and wireless ANT Sport technologies, which help map your training and sync it with a compatible device like computers. Furthermore, the GPS feature marks waypoints and milestones in a location.
This fitness GPS watch includes a rechargeable battery that can be charged with the AC/USB adapters. Additionally, the ANT Heart Rate Watch monitors your heart rate so you know when and where you went through maximum exertion during the routine. The integrated ANT Sport wireless technology lets you automatically transfer information back and forth between the PC and the watch. Additionally, a range of training and motivational features are included in this ANT heart rate watch including courses, virtual partner, goals and workouts. Overall, this watch is an indispensable asset to any serious athlete who wants to improve his performance.
