Time to stop being ghetto and bite the bullet and get myself a new garmin:
The pin fell out of the normal strap on my Garmin 305 earlier this summer. I bought a replacement band (the ugly velcro strap), but the pin fell out again a couple weeks later. So, genius that I am, I came up with the idea of using one of my hair ponies to hold the Garmin to the velcro. It works, but it is digging into my wrist and causing an owie (it is seriously starting to hurt every time I use it now; who knew running could be so dangerous!). Then this morning the heart rate monitor sensor stopped working.
So I decided to bite the bullet and get a new garmin. I could opt for one of the newer, sleeker looking ones – but I’ve heard such mixed things about them. Plus, being so close to Chicago, I don’t want to deal with learning new technology and having a race day freak out b/c I don’t have the right data at my fingertips (I know, I know – I should be running by feel; blah blah blah). So I’ll stick with the Garmin 305. I love my 305! Glad I ordered when I did – apparently Garmin discontinued it – so all you 305 lovers out there, better order your replacement one while you still can!
Anyone a former 305 user that loves a different model?
