Summary: I've used and abused this thing for almost a decade, mainly for cycling. I strap it to my top tube and off I go. I love the ability to upload the ride onto the Garmin Training Center application and gather my ride metrics (speed, average speed, climbing and descent data) and overlay it on a map.
Pros: Easy to set up and use, Variety of training modes (running, cycling), Long battery life, rechargeable
Cons: Sometimes difficult to see in the sunlight, Not comfortable to wear on the wrist when cycling
What I was looking for as a birthday present for my son.

Summary: I bought this as a gift for my son who is in the Army and can use this as a navication device in the field. He was extreamly pleased! It has most of the features he needs when navigating in the field. As a college ROTC instructor it has been helpful in teaching navigation to the cadets.
A product that is an absolute MUST for any serious runner!!!!!

Summary: I bought the forerunner 301 in Feb 2011 and have been using it for 11 months now. It is a great product that has helped me train starting from 0k to 10k. I don't think that I could have done it without the 301! I have had no problems at all with it.
Summary: Once you workout using a Garmin product, you'll never workout alone again. The best feature of this product is the long battery life and the versatility of the the GPS. I love this product...and I got a great deal by making my purchase on eBay.
