Both the products provide information in real-time to the users and help keep track of their fitness regime and goals.

Garmin Forerunner 205 and 305 are waterproof and come in a new design where the GPS antenna wraps around part of the wrist helping it to have a better view of the sky. GPS receiver sensitivity has been enhanced as well this time around.

AutoLap automatically records lap data at a specified time/distance/position while AutoPause will pause the lap timer if the user drops below his configured pace. Through, users can download and share courses with other users.

In addition to these features, the Garmin Forerunner 305 has a heart rate monitor that delivers data to the user's device and this data can be used to generate post-workout analysis.

Can I just say I love the 205. And you can get it cheaper on eBay. Just tried my first run with this thing and it keeps accurate distance and tells you what your speed is. Then you can upload the data via USB cable (included) and see where you ran and how far. Pretty remarkable. A little larger than I expected but still pretty darn small considering what it does.
