You can also use Forerunner 205 to train for your next decathlon or triathlon with multi-sport workouts, a feature that lets you seamlessly transition between sports without resetting the unit, so you can use it for running, biking and more. You can customize any of Forerunner 205's three main data screens up to twelve different data fields give you instant feedback on your workout. And, as with every Forerunner, each workout is stored in memory so you can review and analyze the data and see how you've improved over time. . Minimize
