Garmind developing Forerunner 305

Engadget reports Garmin will unveil a new GPS/training wristwatch at CES 2006.

The Forerunner 305 will look like a watch and will feature GPS, heart rate monitor, speed, distance, pace and calorie trackers, and a waterproof body.
Even though the 305 is a lot more stylish than previous entrants to this category, with wristwatch tech like Fossil’s Wrist PDA lineup having fizzled, the bigger question here is whether people really want all this info on tiny devices with small black-and-white screens and frustrating input methods.
