CES 2009: GPS Watch for Trail Runners
Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (Nasdaq: GRMN), today announced the Forerunner 405 – the latest in Garmin’s popular line of GPS-enabled fitness devices, packing powerful functions and innovative features into a compact size like none other.
“Recreational joggers and elite runners alike will be amazed at the training tools available to them in a watch that could easily be worn all day,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin’s vice president of worldwide sales. “Runners no longer have to choose between fashion and function.”
Runners can track their speed, distance, heart rate and location accurately and effortlessly, and the revolutionary patent-pending touch bezel on the face of the watch makes navigating the options easier than ever. Simply by tapping, holding or running a finger along the bezel, runners can begin a new workout, access their training history or challenge a Virtual Partner™. The Garmin Forerunner 405 makes training with a Virtual Partner easy and efficient. Runners can adjust the Virtual Partner’s pace without stopping in the middle of a workout, and the Virtual Partner is always on and ready for a challenge.
