With the Forerunner 405, Garmin has finally put the power of GPS location-based date into a sleek sport watch
that can be worn all day. Runners no longer have to choose between function and fashion. Garmin's ANT +
Sport wireless platform that wirelessly sends your data to your computer and a touch bezel that lets you
change screens with a simple tap (no more fumbling for buttons) run make this not just a leap forward in
GPS-enabled fitness devices, but in training devices period. Forerunner 405 comes in two color options — black
The Power Of Location-Based Data
Anyone who has used Garmin's Forerunner 205 or 305 already understands the power that attaching location
data to traditional measurements like distance, speed, time, calories burned, and heart rate can provide.
Knowing exactly where you worked hardest, ran fastest (or most slowly), and lets you tailor your workouts to
improve for specific distances, conditions, and types of terrain. It gives a complete picture of how you interact
with every portion of your run.

Train with a virtual partner
Loaded with serious training features, Forerunner 405 continuously monitors your time, distance, pace, calories
and heart rate (when paired with heart rate monitor). Each run is stored in memory so you can review and
analyze the data to see how you've improved.
The high-sensitivity GPS receiver sustains satellite reception, whether you’re tackling a trail or jogging through
the urban canyons of skyscrapers. The Forerunner 405 is water-resistant (IPX7) and can be used outdoors or
indoors (with an optional foot pod), making it the ultimate year-round, all-weather training tool.
Included with the Forerunner 405:
Heart Rate Monitor
USB ANT Stick
Forerunner 405 is available with or without a heart rate monitor (see the versions tab) to help you make the
most out of your training. Versions with a digital heart rate monitor continuously track heart beats per minute.
Train in a certain heart rate zone to improve your fitness level or compare your pace and heart rate to past
performance on the same run.
The revolutionary patent-pending touch bezel on the face of the watch makes navigating the options easier
than ever. Simply by tapping, holding or running a finger along the bezel, runners can begin a new workout,
access their training history or challenge a Virtual Partner. The Forerunner 405 makes training with a Virtual
Partner easy and efficient. Runners can adjust the Virtual Partner’s pace without stopping in the middle of a
workout, and the Virtual Partner is always on and ready for a challenge.
Run, Sync, Store and Share
One of Garmin's most ambitious decisions has been to approach fitness devices as a total platform with their
"ANT + Sport" connectivity system. All of Garmin's new fitness devices, including the Forerunner 405, Edge 605
and 705 bike computers, and Forerunner 50 heart rate monitor watches, will interface wirelessly with any
devices that are compatible wiht the "ANT + Sport" protocol, including devices from other manufacturers.
Once you’ve logged the miles, the ANT + Sport wireless technology automatically transfers data to your
computer when the Forerunner is in range. No cables, no hookups. The data’s just there, ready for you to
analyze, categorize and share through Garmin's online community, Garmin Connect or optional Garmin Training
Center software. You can wirelessly send workouts from your computer to Forerunner, too.
With Forerunner 405 you can share your locations, advanced workouts and courses wirelessly with other
Forerunner 405 users. Now you can send your favorite workout to your buddy to try, or compete against a
friend's recorded course. Sharing data is easy. Just select "transfer" to send your information to nearby units.
Take your training inside with the versatile Forerunner 405. Pair it with an optional foot pod to track your speed,
distance and running cadence indoors when a GPS signal is unavailable. This new design clips onto your laces
for easy removal and automatically turns on when you start moving. You can also add a speed/cadence bike
sensor to track the speed and distance of your cycling workouts.
