Here is a great deal on a very nice Garmin Forerunner 405CX from Best Buy Computing Clearance. This watch is normally well over $250 and you can get it now for $99. This is the refurbished Garmin Forerunner 405CX w/ heart rate monitor. This watch is the updated version of the Forerunner 405. The CX version allows for heart-rate based calorie calculation which is far more accurate than just baseline calculation. The one negative I had about this watch series was that the dial was somewhat sensitive and difficult to use with a lot of sweat or in the winter with gloves. But at $99? This is a great deal! To read a thorough review, check out DC Rainmaker’s review here (this is the original 405 version).

The Forerunner 405CX is the evolution of GPS-enabled training. This sleek sport watch tracks your distance, pace and heart rate, then wirelessly sends the data to your PC for later analysis. The 405CX features heart rate-based calorie computation and comes with a second wrist band option suitable for smaller wrists.
Loaded with serious training features, Forerunner 405CX continuously records your time, distance, pace, calories burned and heart rate. Each workout is stored in memory so you can review and analyze the data to see how you’ve improved. And advanced training features will challenge you to step up your pace — race against Forerunner’s Virtual Partner® to improve your times, or set up interval workouts without having to circle the track. You even can download recorded courses to compete against previous workouts. To use the watch, simply tap the touch bezel to change screens without fumbling for a button.
Track Heart Rate
Forerunner 405CX comes with a flexible, wireless heart rate monitor to help you make the most of your training. The digital heart rate monitor continuously tracks heart beats per minute and uses your heart rate for advanced calorie computation, so you know how many calories you’re burning. Train in a certain heart rate zone to improve your fitness level or compare your pace and heart rate to past performance on the same run.
With Forerunner 405CX, you can share your locations, advanced workouts and courses wirelessly with other Forerunner 405 users. Send your favorite workout to your friends to try, or compete against someone else’s recorded course. Sharing data is easy: just select “transfer” to send your information to a nearby device.
Once you’ve logged the miles, innovative ANT+™ wireless technology automatically transfers data to your computer when Forerunner is in range. No cables. No hookups. The data’s just there, ready for you to analyze, categorize and share through our online community, Garmin Connect™. You even can plan workouts on your computer and then send them to your Forerunner.[/blockquote]
