Works Well I bought the foot pod so I could use my 405CX on an indoor track and have been pleased with the results.Calibration was easy. On the you can calibrate it using the GPS or a 400m track. I chose to use the GPS and it had me run .66 of a mile. Was easy and seems to be pretty accurate. The only issue is that you need to calibrate it at the pace you usually run at. For instance I usually run at a 10 minute/mile pace but since I was only running .66 miles while calibrating it I ran at a much faster pace throwing it off a bit.Running on a .10 mile indoor track after 3.5 miles it was off by about 50′ more by the end of the run. Not perfect by any means but I could probably calibrate it more (or you can adjust it manually) to key it in.I don’t use it running while outside, but if you don’t like the pace…

Works well I purchased this unit with the intention of using it on my elliptical trainer during those times when it was too late or too wet/windy to walk/jog outside. My Forerunner 305 already accurately records distance and speed without the Foot Pod as long as I’m outside (my preferred method of exercise), and the cadence tracking capability was not all that important to me (I’m an old man, not an athlete in training). It took several iterations to make this gizmo work with the elliptical trainer (Schwinn 430), but I did finally get it to work. I was able to get it to match the cadence, distance, speed and calories expended, to within just a few percent. Unfortunately, the cam mechanism I designed to make the foot pod think I was wearing it on my shoe while running, made enough noise to make my spouse agitated, and therefore rendered my solution impractical. I have replaced my “elliptical trainer solution” with a Garmin bicycle cadence sensor (non contact and therefore totally silent). So now…

Excellent I bought this to go with my Garmin 405 purchased earlier this year. I love the watch w HR monitor… it has completely changed the way I plan my runs, that is I do not have to plan them out by driving a route in my car with the trip meter going, and then forget the route halfway through my run. Plus its a lot of fun to be able to come home and look at all of the data that was downloaded including the map of my run. When the temperature started to get super hot and humid this summer, I unfortunately had to switch to mainly treadmill running. After getting my 405, it seemed like more of a pain keeping track of my training manually (I know I know, I never had an issue with it before but I guess I am spoiled now). Anyways, on to the foot pod. It did not take me long after returning to treadmill running to determine that I really wanted the foot pod.I read a ton of Amazon reviews before purchasing, and all I have to say is I love it. Its extremely accurate. I did not…
