Hi everybody,

I know this thread is getting old and you probably got all your testers, but even so, I would like to propose myself for beta testing the GH-505 if there is still some more places.

I bought the GH-625M in june last year. After two months, the battery would not charge anymore. I felt it was because I forgot it on charge before going to work. When I came back, I heard a shrill caming out of the watch. I was a bit perplex about what to think of the quality of the watch (no charge protector???).

Jesse in GlobalsatUSA offered me a pretty good customer support. After receving a new watch, automn and winter arrived in Montreal, Canada. I gave the watch a try and start to practice my marathon training in the cold seasons. I know it was not a long winter but I was really surprise to see that the watch did pass the cold test and from that time I fall back in love with it. I must admit that it did froze one time (all functions was unaccessible), but I can't tell if it was because the memory was full or because the weather was cold. Anyway, I did reset the watch and after that, when it was cold and windy (about -20 celcius), I placed the watch under my sleeve and I always been able to track my workout. Nice, what a good surprise!  :)

As for the GH-505, I think it will get the two biggest improvment I was looking for: the submersibilty and the interval training. I wrote a few times to the tech support about setting up the intervall training to the GH-625M. They told me that they weren't able because the processor was already loaded. Interval training is the technic I use to improve my average speed. Saving every time I stop running when doing stop and go is not really effective. So, like abdominizer and others, I will really enjoy and test this feature hard.

As for the submersibilty, it will it will allow me to try what I wanted to do since some time already: the half ironman and maybe the ironman as well. I just moved near a water canal where there is a large swimming pool and a long cycle track. I feel like to try this adventure. Even if running remains my main discipline. I just have to wait for the pool to heat up with the coming days...


Good luck to all and I can't wait to see the improvements that you guys will bring us ;-)

Hi Simon,

It is highly appreciated that you provide the detail review and using our product.
Customer are the resource to drive us progressing and we always to do our best for you.
I am not sure what problem comes from your watch? It seems component damanged.
GH-505 has a big improvment on water resistance and power comsumption and training features. And the program has been finished, I hope you are the next lucky one.
Actually, interval training is keeping development, I think it will be ready soon.

The wether is still cold, we expect it will be getting warmer and everybody can enjoy outdoor activity.


Sincerely,

Geoffrey

Hello Geoffrey

I would also like to be considered for any future beta testing of your GPS Sport devices.

I am a member of a small local Running group ( about 40 people ) in Brisbane, Australia.
Most of my friends are using Garmin devices ( FR305,FR405 & FR310) and I am interested in trying something different.

The GH-505 seems to have a lot of the features that I require for running training and racing.

I currently only use a Timex Ironman watch and am in training for a Half Marathon in July.


Looking forward to the GH505 release

GH-505 has several features what Garmin doesn't have. Such as:
- Smart Track Back;
- Over 6000 Laps and 62000 waypoints;
- Watch Mode;

Welcome to join us. :D

Hello Geoffrey

The Timex watch is a Ironman Triathlon Sleek 150.
It records up to 150 laps ( set by a button push ) and has Interval timer alarms.
To calculate my pace, I have to run pre-determined routes where I know the kilometre marks.

I am monitoring the release of the new Timex Global Trainer GPS watch but I like the look of the GH-505 better
