Excerpt: When you're out running, you shouldn't lose track of where you're going. That can be tough, though, when you hit the sidewalk in a new town. The Garmin Forerunner 301 is more than just a heart-rate monitor: It also tracks distance, speed, pace, and calories burned, and its built-in GPS sensor provides basic navigation. The unit is bulky, and you won't win any style points—but at least you won't find yourself running in circles.
Excerpt: I had the opportunity to try out a Garmin Forerunner 301 recently when I used it to test out the online mapping software provided by Motionbased.com . The Forerunner is a very nice, lightweight (only 2.6 ounces!) GPS receiver that straps to your wrist. Ideal for runners, this flagship Forerunner model includes a heart rate monitor as well.
