  • Summary: Bought this for my wife and had been looking at them for a while, but had held off due to the price of one that was not the size of a walkman. The wrist watches were still very big and seemed hard to see route info. This is just the right size and accomplishes what is needed. My wife really likes the software tracking to log her runs. It did lose the signal under tree cover, but caught back up with the whole time and distance once clear.

Garmin Forerunner 301 GPS Receiver

  • Summary: This is a great product for training. I just used it for the first time in a 5K race. The Forerunner works flawlessly and kept accurate information of time and distance. The only issue I have is with the heart rate monitor. It is very uncomfortable around the chest and was slipping during my run. I have to figure out how to best wear this. The heart rate monitor kept losing communication with the GPS. There is still a lot to be tested out on this product.

Much information for those who work out regularly

  • Summary: This is my second 301. My first one's Heart Rate function stopped working a little after the warranty ran out (wasn't just the transmitter on the chest-I'm marking overall as good, but it would be excellent without this issue). But note that I bought another one. This is a great device for the money. It provides much information about my workouts using it with the Training Center program that you can easily upload from the device to your PC.

garmins for runners ( and other sportspeeps)

  • Excerpt: I can't imagine life without my Garmin. Those days before it seem dark compared to now when I charge off down the road knowing that all the information I need is strapped to my wrist. For starters I was suprised to find I had been further than I thought, which is a bonus. I was more of a runner than I thought I was. It's an expensive bit of kit, but worth every penny. It is motivational because I can't wait to upload the data onto the computer and study it.
  • Pros: Easy to use
  • Cons: loss  of signal

  • Excerpt: The Garmin Forerunner 301 is a training tool for the multi-sport fanatics, complete with timekeeping, GPS and heartrate monitor capabilities. It is one of my training partners that goes along on every cycle and run that I do. ------GPS------ Although at times it seems to be about half a mile out with its GPS calculations of my distance, the pace, lap pace and distance is a great help. No more guessing what distance I ran!
  • Pros: GPS, Heartrate monitor, Training Manager,Easy to change between Activities
  • Cons: Does not work as accurately in built - up areas or between thick trees

Ne vale la pena!

  • Summary: Per chi vuole allenarsi un po' seriamente è l'ideale!. Il sensore GPS consente di monitorare ad ogni passo (o pedalata l'allenamento) anche se occorre stare attenti a non perdere il segnale soprattutto in zone piuttosto coperte. Le funzionalità del software sono assolutamente complete e la possibilità di programmazione in linea con le aspettative. La precisione è buona ed il peso non eccessivo. Passando ai difetti.....
  • Pros: Un tool completo per l'allenamento, affidabile, ottimo il collegamento al PC
  • Cons: non è waterproof .  .  .
