Forerunner® 205

Part Number: 010-00466-01


Form meets function with Garmin's high-performance line of personal trainers — the Forerunner 205, 305 and 405. 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 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 also can 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 customize any of Forerunner 205's three main data screens — up to 12 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 analyze the data and see how you've improved over time.

Track Your Progress

As an added benefit, you can plan, analyze and store data from your workouts through our online community, Garmin Connect™. Conveniently upload your data to Garmin Connect for an in-depth analysis of your workouts, online mapping and route sharing that will take your training to the next level.
