Form meets function with Garmin's high-performance line of personal trainers - the Forerunner 205 & 305. The Forerunner 205 includes a high sensitivity GPS receiver and a new courses feature for optimal performance.

Lock On to Satellite Signals
The Forerunner 205 sports a unique design that wraps the GPS antenna around part of the wrist for a better view of the sky, and its high sensitivity GPS receiver provides highly accurate speed and distance data, as well as improved tracking under trees and near tall buildings.

Take It to the Next Level
Forerunner 205's courses feature lets you compete against previous workouts: you can compare your pace over your entire workout to your past performance over the same run. You can also use Forerunner 205 to train for your next duathlon or triathlon with multi-sport workouts, a feature that lets you seamlessly transition between sports without resetting the unit, so you can use it for running, biking and more.

Get the Data You Need
You can customise any of Forerunner 205's three main data screens - up to twelve different data fields give you instant feedback on your workout. And, as with every Forerunner, each workout is stored in memory so you can review and analyse the data and see how you've improved over time.

Track Your Progress
As an added benefit, you can plan, analyse and store data from your workouts using free Garmin Training Center® software, which lets you analyse data with interactive graphs that chart your pace, time and distance. Overlay your run on a map so you can pinpoint specific areas and see how elevation and other factors affect your performance. Or, upload your workout data to MotionBased.com, Garmin's web-based application that provides in-depth analysis of your workouts, online mapping and route sharing that will take your training to the next level. Endurance athletes can also use the Forerunner with TrainingPeaks.com, an easy-to-use web-based training system designed to help athletes train for any event.
