Runners, your watch is here. The Garmin Forerunner 405 continuously monitors your time, distance, pace, calories and heart rate. The GPS enabled watch will store the data in memory and send it wirelessly to your computer.

The touch bezel (a la iPod) will let you scroll and select features on the run, not being hampered by a confusing interface.

This watch isn’t a one-trick pony though. Paired with the optional foot pod, you can track your speed, distance and running cadence indoors where a GPS is unavailable thru a sensor that clips to your shoe laces. It can also be links to a speed/cadence bike sensor to track the speed and distance of your bike circuits. [via BeSportier]

What this means to you: Exercising is best when unencumbered by gadgetry. Make the Garmin Forerunner 405 the center of your cross-training regimen.

Cost: $299 @ Garmin
