A friend of mine discovered that you can replace the wristband of your Garmin Forerunner 305/405 GPS watch. He would not have discovered this product if it had not been for his dog having turned his GPS watch strap into a chew toy. He told me he was actually really happy his dog did it because otherwise he wouldn’t have discovered that it was possible to replace the the existing original wrist straps on his Forerunner.
He advised me to change my wrist strap beacuse the original hard straps had resulted in blisters on his wrist from rubbing during long runs. Although I had never got any blisters and was perfectly happy with the original wristband, I took his advice and I must say that the velcro strap is a dream in comparison. It is easy to put on, comfortable and I really like the velcro and the feel of the strap. I would highly recommend this purchase. You may make sure to get the actual Garmin brand, but you could also experiment with other and maybe cheaper or more expensive quality luxury wristbands. Just make sure that what you choose will fit your wrist and your Garmin sports watch.
