UPDATE: Read about the latest model in this series in our Garmin Forerunner 405 review.
The Garmin Forerunner 305 updates the Forerunner 301, and there are a number of improvements that go beyond the stylish appearance, such as the addition of customizable data screens. But the thing likely to wow everyone is the SiRFSTAR III chipset, which has been getting rave reviews for acquisition time and awesome coverage under canopy, in urban canyons and even indoors!
The Forerunner 305 has all the features of the Forerunner 205, except that the 305 adds a heart-rate monitor.
