Don't drop that GPS while you're running. That's obviously the lesson Garmin wants you to learn with its Forerunner 205 and Forerunner 305, now showing at CES. These next-gen products for the company's fitness line are small and light (obviously) and now have a design which wraps the GPS antenna around just part of your wrist so it has a better view of the sky while you're off training. A customizable display has a feature called AutoLap that automatically records lap data at a specified time, distance, or position and AutoPause that will pause the lap timer when you drop below the limit of your configured pace. Always thinking, Garmin. The 305 comes with a heart rate monitor that delivers real-time heart rate data exclusively to the user s device and is compatible with Edge 305. Both come with a USB PC interface cable, AC charger, docking station, Training Center CD, owner s manual and quick-reference guide. The 205 should run about $249 and the 305 should go for about $349. Look for them this February.
