Summary: I really liked this watch while it worked. The design fit my small wrist perfectly. Then is just stopped working. I'd turn it on and it would turn itself off. I was very sad when this watch quit because I liked the features especially the pace and distance alarms. The seller was nice enought to take it back and refund my money.
Pros: Relatively small and compact - good for those indivudals who travel on business; Useful when running in a new location; Clear display with good backlighting when needed
Cons: Recently ran a marathon with some tree cover but mostly clear view of the sky. The Forerunner indicated a distance of 27.2 miles at the end of the marathon - a 4% error (error grew linearly throughout the marathon). This limited the usefullness of the pac
Pros: Compared to the nike triax elite and sunnto t6, it is relatively cheap. I was able to get it on ebay for about $45 less than retail. Gives very accurate distance and pace readings. Easy to use and although appears bulky, when you put it on is actually qu
Cons: The biggest problem with it is that the GPS signals are weak, on cloudy days or areas where there are an abundance of trees, it does not get the signal, even worse is that the timer will stop as well so even if you know the route and distance you are runn
Pros: Generally, it is a good device when running in near-perfect conditions. If you only run on cement roads or heavily used trails (or just areas with a good view of the sky), it should work fine.
Cons: If you run on trails, the Garmin Forerunner 201 can be highly erroneous. To compensate for those errors, waypoints must be made frequently so the device can determine the length of your run. Unfortunately, there aren't any things you can do for the peri
Cons: Poor software. Serial interface. Increasingly erratic performance. Loses GPS signal too easily. Recently did the seemingly impossible - recorded longer miles than actual ( apparantly the shortest distance between two points is not a straight line )
Excerpt: Ottimo per gli allenamenti .Ha un piccolo difetto : non segnala con precisione i piccoli circuiti corsi a ripetizione;quindi non usarlo nei percorsi circolari dei parchi....ma ricordati che dopo 2 - 4 anni è da buttare.La batteria non è sostituibile"Prima di costruire una torre siediti e calcola bene la spesa!".E' come pagare un mutuo per tutta la vita di €7,00 al mese.Ora che lo so posso dire che è valsa la pena ,ma il prossimo non penso di comprarmelo.Comunque,mai ...
Summary: Que vendre de plus à un coureur que des chaussures chères, ou un maillot en peau de buse ? Ou encore un cardiofréquencemètre dernier cri, mais sans bruit, qui dit tout sur le cœur pendant l'effort ? Oui, un appareil qui totalise les kilomètres, indique les trajets, et calcule les moyennes, les maxis, les minis, et tutti quanti.
Pros: La vitesse moyenne et le nombre de kilomètres parcouru
Cons: Lourd, difficile d'utilisation, lent à la mise en route, données non récupérables, bref beaucoup de soucis
