Summary: Great little GPS unit, I purchased mine because I race r/c boats and the unit is perfect for timing the lap and speed of a boat. It is completly water proof and will be placed inside the boat that is being raced after being wrapped in bubble wrap which cushions it in the event of shock and keeps it...
Easy to use and very accurate. A must for runners & bikers.

Summary: A very good unit, I own this one and a Garmmin 301 which is an upgraded model. The PC interface and ease of charging is much better on the slightly pricier 301. Other than that the 201 is every bit as accurate as the 301. Both are great for biking and jogging/walking for accurate measurements.
Summary: This is a great device tracks my speed and distance which helps me run new routes and hit my target distance, but it takes about 5 minutes to find satellites without moving it. if running under trees may lose signal other than that great product
Summary: The Garmin 201 is a really fun addition to my running routine. When I get back from a run, I can look at my mile splits, get an idea of my pace, and know pretty much exactly how far I've gone. The battery works great, it lasts the whole week before I have to charge it.
Summary: The 201 is a great GPS training system. Since I bought this one the 301 has come out and it has a heart rate monitor that the 201 does NOT have. If I was going to purchase one-GET the GARMIN Forerunner 301 or the latest model out. My husband loves this GPS device.
Summary: I have been using the Garmin Forerunner 201 for 2 months and it was helped me a lot with my training. I run most of the time on the streets and even in the areas that have a lot of tree coverage the 201 may get a weak signal but is able to track my run without a problem.
Summary: I've had this unit for a couple of years now and I absolutely love it. It really helps gauge your training whether you are walking, running or biking, on or off road. It is easy to use, clear to see and comfortable to wear. Battery life is great too and the unit is easy to recharge from your PC.
Summary: I got the Garmin 201 in October and have been using it regularly. As in previous comments the GPS receiver is a little on the delicate side and when passing through/under/around tall buildings it does blimp out.
Summary: Den FORERUNNER 201 habe ich nun schon 2 1/2 Jahre und benutze ihn mehrfach die Woche. Das Gerät hat mich noch nie im Stich gelassen. Die Qualität ist wirklich gut. Die Genauigkeit der Daten ist erstaunlich.
Summary: Tutto ha inizio un paio di mesi fa.... Dopo quattro anni di sostanziale inattività fisica, dovuta a necessita' familiari, ho deciso di alleggerirmi cercando di perdere qualche etto di grasso che si era accumulato in questo tempo.
Pros: Peso ridotto, facilita' d'utilizzo, trasferimento dati allenamenti al PC
