Just when you thought GPS technology has been used to just about everything including the kitchen sink, Garmin has developed a high-performance personal trainer device that incorporates a highly-sensitive GPS receive. Introducing the Garmin Forerunner 305.

It sports a unique design wherein the GPS antenna is wrapped around part of the wrist for a better map and sky views, as well as a GPS receiver that enables tracking even under trees and near tall buildings. The Forerunner 305 also has a wireless heart rate monitor placed in a comfortable chest strap, and eliminates interferences with other devices for a more reliable measurement.

Another interesting feature in this device is that it lets you compare against previous performance records over the same workout, and a "multi-sport workout" that lets you seamlessly transition between sports without having to reset the unit. This personal trainer is ideal for duathletes and triathletes. An optional Foot Pad accessory that is attached to your running shoe also lets you track your distance, pace, and calories burned even while running indoors.

Overall, the Garmin Forerunner 305 is more than just a GPS receiver. It helps you track your progress as you achieve your optimum physical shape.
