My beloved Garmin Forerunner 305 is on its last legs - the alerts don't beep anymore, it won't sync with my computer, and new development today - pressing any of the buttons besides "start/stop" causes it to shut off.
SOOOO... I guess I'm in the market to replace it (as well as to find one for my fiance, who has gotten interested in my 305 lately). Any suggestions?
Features I love about the 305: the ability to have split screens, and to switch between screens. On one I show lap pace, lap time, lap distance, and on another I have total time, total distance, and current pace (which is actually fairly unhelpful most of the time). Thos are the two screens I use the most - the third shows me total time, total distance, lap pace, and randomly calories (which I assume is innacurate, making that fairly pointless as well.)
I also like the history log, with the ability to see overall stats, as well as lap-by-lap breakdowns without syncing it to my computer.
The heart rate chest band alway worked well for me, though I often forget to put it on.
I've never loved the bulkiness of the watch itself, but it never bothered me so much once I got on the road.
Accuracy is important.
