Garmin Forerunner 205 Review


UPDATE: This model has been discontinued. For information on current models, check out our GPS for runners page.

The Garmin Forerunner 205 is a stylish update of the Forerunner 201. But don’t judge it just by looks. The 205 has the new SiRFSTAR III chipset that has been garnering rave reviews for its amazing performance under canopy, in urban canyons, and even indoors!

The primary difference between this unit and the Forerunner 305, is that the 305 has a heart-rate monitor; the 205 does not.

    A great disappointment!! Speaker failed in less than a year! Support was terrible ! Replacement has an inferior batter and replacement is impossible. Will never buy another garmin product and would never recommend.
