I use the Forerunner 305 because I like it for both running and biking. I don't have the cycling add-ons like cadence. I mainly use it just to keep track of miles, and to see my route on the map afterwards. I never ride without it.
I think there's a new 405 model out now though, which is a lot smaller and probably lighter. It's round and less clunky looking. That's the one I would get if I were getting it now.
I only paid about 300 for the 305 a year ago, so 399 sounds a bit high. That was without cadence however.
