Introduction
Caring for the
Forerunner
Clean the Forerunner and the heart
rate monitor using a cloth dampened
with a mild detergent solution. Wipe
dry. Avoid chemical cleaners and
solvents that may damage plastic
components.
Do not store the Forerunner where
prolonged exposure to temperature
extremes may occur (such as in the
trunk of a car), as permanent damage
may result.
User information, such as history,
locations, and tracks, is retained
indefinitely in the memory of the unit
without the need for external power.
Back up important user data by
transferring it to Garmin Connect or
Garmin Training Center. See page 9.
iv
Water Immersion
The Forerunner is waterproof to
IEC Standard 60529 IPX7. It can
withstand immersion in 1 meter of
water for 30 minutes. Prolonged
submersion can cause damage to the
unit. After submersion, be certain to
wipe dry and air dry the unit before
using or charging.
Caution: The Forerunner is
not intended to be used while
swimming. Swimming or
prolonged water submersion can
cause a short in the unit, which
can in rare cases result in a minor
skin burn or irritation in the area
of the unit.

recording approximately 1 trackpoint
every 4 seconds). Tracklog data
includes your GPS position (if
available) and accessory data such as
heart rate data.
When the Forerunner memory is
full, your oldest tracklog data is
overwritten. Upload your history to
Garmin Connect or Garmin Training
Center periodically to keep track of
all of your data (see page 9).
Note: Your Forerunner will not
automatically delete or overwrite
your lap summary data. See the

Using Accessories
The following ANT+ accessories are
compatible with the Forerunner:
• Heart rate monitor
• Foot pod
• GSC™ 10 speed and cadence bike
sensor
• USB ANT Stick (see page 9 and
page 31)
To purchase accessories, go to
http://buy.garmin.com or contact
your Garmin dealer.
Pairing Accessories
If you purchased an accessory with
ANT+ wireless technology, you need
to pair it with your Forerunner.
Pairing is connecting ANT+
accessories, such as the heart rate
monitor, with your Forerunner. The
pairing process only takes a few
seconds when the accessories are
activated and functioning correctly.
When paired, your Forerunner
only receives data from your
accessory, even if you are near other
accessories.
After you pair the first time, your
Forerunner automatically recognizes
your accessory each time the
accessory is activated.
To pair accessories:
1. Move away (10 m) from other
accessories. Bring the accessory
to be paired within range (3 m) of
the Forerunner.
2. Touch and hold menu > select
Settings > ANT+ > Accessories.
3. Select your accessory.
4. Select Enabled > Yes.

5. Scroll to view Status. If the
Forerunner cannot pair with the
accessory, select Rescan.
Tip: The accessory needs to
send data to complete the pairing
process. You need to wear the
heart rate monitor, take a step
wearing the foot pod, or pedal
your bike with the GSC 10.

Heart Rate Monitor
For information about putting on the

Heart Rate Monitor Tips
If you are noticing inaccurate
or erratic heart rate data, use the
following tips.
• Make sure the heart rate monitor
is snug against your body.
• Reapply water, saliva, or
electrode gel to the electrodes.
• Clean the electrodes. Dirt and
sweat residue can interfere with
heart rate signals.
• Wear a cotton shirt or wet your
shirt if suitable for your activity.
Synthetic fabrics that rub or flap
against the heart rate monitor
can create static electricity that
interferes with heart rate signals.
• Move away from sources of
strong electromagnetic fields and
Forerunner 405CX Owner’s Manual

some 2.4 GHz wireless sensors,
which can interfere with your
heart rate monitor. Sources of
interference may include very
high voltage power lines, electric
motors, microwave ovens,
2.4 GHz cordless phones, and
wireless LAN access points.
Heart Rate Zones
Caution: Consult your
physician to specify heart rate
zones/targets that are appropriate
for your fitness level and health
condition.
Many athletes are using heart rate
zones to measure and increase their
cardiovascular strength and improve
their level of fitness. A heart rate
zone is a set range of heartbeats per
minute. The five commonly accepted
heart rate zones are numbered from
1–5 according to increasing intensity.
The Forerunner sets the heart rate
zone ranges (see the table on page
45) based on your maximum and
resting heart rates set in your user
profile (see page 28).
You can also customize your heart
rate zones in your user profile of
Garmin Connect or Garmin Training
Center. After customizing your heart
rate zones, transfer data to your
Forerunner.
How Do Heart Rate Zones
Affect Your Fitness Goals?
Knowing your heart rate zones can
help you measure and improve
your fitness by understanding and
applying these principles:
• Your heart rate is a good measure
of exercise intensity.
• Training in certain heart rate
zones can help you improve
cardiovascular capacity and
strength.
• Knowing your heart rate
Forerunner 405CX Owner’s Manual35
Using Accessories
zones can prevent you from
overtraining and decrease your
risk of injury.
Heart Rate Monitor Battery
The heart rate monitor contains a
user-replaceable CR2032 battery.
Note: Contact your local waste
disposal department to properly
dispose of batteries.
3. Remove the cover and battery.
Wait 30 seconds. Insert the new
battery with the positive side
facing up.
Note: Be careful not to damage
or lose the O-ring gasket on the
cover.
4. Use a coin to twist the cover
clockwise so the arrow on the
cover points to CLOSE.
To replace the battery:
1. Locate the circular battery cover
on the back of the heart rate
monitor.
2. Use a coin to twist the cover
counter-clockwise so the arrow on
the cover points to OPEN.

Forerunner 405CX Owner’s Manual
Using Accessories
Foot Pod
Your Forerunner is compatible with
the foot pod. You can use the foot
pod to send data for your Forerunner
when training indoors or when your
GPS signal is weak or you lose
satellite signals. The foot pod is
on standby and ready to send data
(like the heart rate monitor). You
must pair the foot pod with your
Forerunner. See page 33.
Calibrating the Foot Pod
Calibrating your foot pod is optional
and can improve accuracy. There are
three ways to adjust the calibration:
distance, GPS, and manual.
Distance Calibration
For best results, the foot pod should
be calibrated using the inside lane of
a regulation track. A regulation track
(2 laps = 800 m) is more accurate
than a treadmill.
1. Touch and hold menu > select
Settings > ANT+ > Accessories
> Foot Pod > Calibrate >
Distance.
2. Select a distance.
3. Press start to begin recording.
4. Run or walk the distance.
5. Press stop.
GPS Calibration
You must have GPS signals to
calibrate the Foot Pod using GPS.
1. Touch and hold menu > select
Settings > ANT+ > Accessories
> Foot Pod > Calibrate > GPS.
2. Press start to begin recording.
Forerunner 405CX Owner’s Manual37

3. Run or walk approximately
1000 m. The Forerunner informs
you that you have traveled far
enough.
Manual Calibration
If your foot pod distance seems
slightly high or low each time you
run, you can manually adjust the
calibration factor.
Touch and hold menu > select
Settings > ANT+ > Accessories
> Foot Pod > Cal Factor. Adjust
the calibration factor. Increase the
calibration factor if your distance
is too low; decrease the calibration
factor if your distance is too high.

GSC 10
Your Forerunner is compatible with
the GSC 10 speed and cadence bike
sensor. You must pair the GSC 10

Calibrating your bike sensor is
optional and can improve accuracy.
1. Touch and hold menu > select
