Summary: This device is terrible are dealing with tree cover, even light tree cover. On certain points on my run, I am in wide open places with a single row of trees far off to one side, and this device loses the signal.
Summary: I travel a lot for work and typically while in an unfamiliar city I have trained for marathons in the hotel's fitness center on a treadmill because I am the type of runner who needs to know the exact mileage I am running and up until I owned the Garmin Forerunner that was impossible to know if I was...
Summary: This is a great gadget that helped me train for a half marathon. When using this watch I dont feel as though I am training by myself. When I see my pace has slowed down I know it is time to kick it up a notch. I also used the watch during my race. So helpful!
Summary: This navigator has been an awesome tool to inspire me to run more throught the week. It helps my jogs to be less boring & brings out a competitive side I was lacking. I found out about the Forerunner through my brother who trains for the LA Marathon each year, he recommended it to me.
Summary: This is a good product if you want the basics only. It takes awhile for the satellite tracking to find you but once it does you are all set...unless you are around a city with lots of tall buildings. If you want to track distance and time only this is the perfect product for you.
Summary: The Garmin Forerunner 101 may be the entry level for Garmin but it packs all the necessary information to enhance any level of runners workout. I was suprised by all the features offered in the 101, for example: a two year work out history; Workout maps; pace; time; distance; personal assistant...
Summary: I bought my first Forerunner 201 2 months ago. It had so many wonderful functions, I purchased 3 more immediately for our running team. After 2 weeks, one went dead. Then, one by one, three went dead. Amazon is excellent in replacing new ones. But even the replacement broke down after a few weeks.
Summary: First let me say that I am not an avid runner and to be quite honest I have hated the sport of running. (sorry) Because I am in the military we are required to run so I have had to take up the sport. The biggest problem I had though was finding a way to pace myself and train.
Summary: That being said, I only give it 4 stars because I kind of miss the ability to link to my computer (I'm an ultra geek). Still, Lion batteries ONLY have a life of 3 years max - don't let anyone tell you otherwise - and 3 years it won't be NEAR it's original life.
Summary: I really like this GPS. I use it mainly for hiking and backpacking and it has taken a lot of abuse. It isn't totally waterproof... just water resistant. I have worn it in the rain and it was fine although water did get into the battery compartment during a particularly bad downpour.
