I almost didn’t bother writing this – the Forerunner 305 has so many reviews already and I figured no one would actually get to reading mine. But in the interest of providing some info I didn’t see in other reviews (course I only read the first few pages), I figured I’d write something up.
I got the Forerunner as a Mother’s Day present a couple weeks ago. I’ve since taken it on several runs. I’m just getting back into running after a 10 year hiatus so I’m by no means an expert — I can’t speak to how the Forerunner works for elite runners or people with serious training schedules. I mainly wanted it because I’ve been running through the woods on unmarked trails, and it’s hard to judge the effectiveness of your workouts if you have no idea how far you’re running.
Overall the Forerunner does what it says – it seems pretty accurate with distance (I’ve taken it on trails with milemarkers a few times and it seems pretty dead-on with the mileposts). The trails I run on are pretty-thickly tree-covered and it doesn’t seem to bother the reception much. The pace sometimes gets wonky — I run at a pretty consistent pace 9-10 minute mile pace) but I’ve seen it swing wildly within a minute from 11 min/mile down to 7 min/mile — I can say for sure that if I was really running 7 minute miles, I’d probably keel over dead so I know that isn’t right. Also, the elevation readings seem completely whacked. One of my trails is an old rails-to-trails and is completely flat along a creekbed — there’s maybe a total of 10 feet of elevation change. Every time I run it and download the results of my run, the Garmin tells me I ascended a total of 200+ feet and decended 170ish feet. Besides the logicaly impossibility of that (wouldn’t I still be floating 30 feet in the air when I returned to my starting point), there’s no way there’s more than 10 feet of elevation change total over the whole trail. I’m not sure if elevation is so inaccurate because of the trees or what, but if you are lookin
