Here are the GF405 data I accumulated during my carbon-loading at EDSA last Sunday:

As you can see running on “real roads” really tests GF405’s features better than just running on tracks or race courses. And with these tests we can all see that as great a product GF405 is, it’s not perfect and it still has room for improvements. I’ll be coming out with a review of GF405 using all these data that I’ve accumulated on various “tests” soon for you to evaluate if it’s worth your hard-earned buck. As for me, I still view it as a “Ferrari of running sports watches.”

Definitely, I couldn’t agree with you more that there will be improvements made with the Garmin. I remember my first GPS watch, a Timex with the bulky box that you had to put on the bicep of one of your arms. When Garmin came out with the 201, wow!
> I agree, 201 really paved the way for more ergonomic GPS watches that’s why I still recommend it to my friends. I think 401’s changes were only superficial but deep inside it’s still just an upgraded 201.
The top view images of your route are amazing! Now that’s what you call a ‘Power Run’. 🙂
> Thanks Cathy but I have to give the credit to Google. Too bad that the satellite imagery of Metro Manila is a few years old, but nonetheless it’s still workable. 🙂
No! Ferrari is the Garmin of sportscars! 😀 LOL!
