Rated 5 out of 5 by AdventureNow I use it for every workout!
It took me a few days to become familiar with this device. The menus are not as intuitive my old Garmin 301 (which I had to retire after 6 years because the batteries wouldn't last more than 4 hours). The touch bezel is kind of neat, but also annoying. Sometimes the bezel doesn't sweep through the menus the way I intend. I think I'd prefer to have two more buttons than have the touch bezel. The Garmin 405 picks up satellites much faster than any other GPS I have. The heart rate monitor works great. I enjoy knowing just how fast I'm traveling and how far I've traveled when I run or bike, but I really like knowing just how hard I'm pushing and the heart rate monitor tells me precisely how hard my body is working.
I bought this item Refurbished because the price was right. It came with everything expected with a new device, and it looks and feels like it was made yesterday. There are no indications that is was ever used before.
Not only do I recommend this product, but I recommend checking to see if a refurbished model is available. You'll save a few dollars and get the same product.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nmart A very well made product. A bit of a learning curve, but once you get used to the functionality (read the manual), it has some really great features.
I use it with the ANT+ foot pod to track my cadence and indoor running.
For all the features it has and very quick to find GPS satellites, its a terrific value.
If you're tech savvy, then I highly recommend it. If you want something more simple, then this is probably not the watch for you.

I have had many difficulties shopping online with wallmart as of late. I ordered this garmin 405 the first time and then had to return because I was sent the wrong item. Now this time i recieved the correct item but it does not work. I am thinking this online shopping is not for me.

Overall, very happy with this GPS watch. I was a little hesitant to purchase a refurb model but decided to try since it was priced so well. Fortunately it worked out very well for me. I read quite a few reviews with concerns over the "touchiness" of the bezel. If you are going to try and scroll through screens while on the run, this may be an issue for you. I just lock the screen after beginning a run and it's not a problem. I download every run onto my computer and it has worked great. Sometimes there may be a slight delay with the download but it has always worked and it is nice to be able to see my stats for each run. I love the ability to put on my running gear and take off and know how far, fast and the route I took after each run regardless of where I go. Thanks for a great deal.
