The GPS functions will be useless if you aren't going anywhere.

However, if you get the HRM, that will certainly still work. And if you have the cadence sensor and it's installed on your stationary bike, it'll work. The cadence sensor also has a sensor that can pick up the back wheel turning (if you put a magnet on it) that it can use instead of the GPS functions. That will work on a regular bike on a trainer, but probably won't work on a stationary bike.

Actually, that's all about the Edge 305 (which I have), not the Forerunner 305. But it looks like the Forerunner 305 supports the HRM and the sensor too, so it's all still true.
