So in the early days and the first time I tried my Garmin Forerunner I thought I would just take on my normal walk around town lunch break.

A friend of mine noted that I had done some serious speeding during the walk….

So having used the Strava App a few times on my phone and never really being too keen on using my phone to track my runs or rides, I decided to get a GPS watch that could track my biking and running.

After a search on Google and then a quick scout on eBay I ended up with an old Garmin Forerunner 305, I then added the bike mount from ChainReactionCycles and I was good to go.

Unit arrived and seemed to fit nicely on the wrist even with the size of it, which it is a large device that is for sure. I swapped out the standard strap for the quick release kit and then I was able to use the velcro strap which the unit just clips into and then a simple process of just unclipping and clipping the unit onto the bike mount.

Edit – Getting used to the unit now after a few runs and bike trips, I was happy that it did what I needed. (But for how long)
