  • A Great Running Tool

    Oct 18, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Running history, accurate current distance and good runner specific features.
    Cons: Loses signal a little too easy sometimes and questionable support service.

    Summary: We loved our Garmin 60cs so much we decided to give this Garmin product a try out. For a little background, I run a moderate amount and had wanted to start increasing the amount I ran. The problem I kept running into is either I had to take the car or ... read more

    Pros: Easy to use

    Pros: Excellent way of finding your workout stats. light. accurate. durable. makes your workout more interactive
    Cons: doesn't work indoors (gym, indoor track). looses signal in thick clouds sometimes. none other!

    Summary: This is a simple review about the Garmin Forerunner 101. The Garmin Forerunner 101 is a miniature GPS system that is designed for runners and hikers and anyone that is on the move. It is basically the same unit as the larger Garmin units in terms of ... read more

    Dec 3, 2005 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Tiny, easy to use, durable, water-proof, low price.
    Cons: Black & White Screen

    Summary: I wanted a basic and small GPS to keep with me at all times while outdoors. This unit fits the bill. It is tiny and easily fits in your shirt pocket or small hiking bag. Having a unit like this could save yourself or a loved ones life in the outdoors. I ... read more

  • Everything you need, nothing you don't.

    Jul 11, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Small, light, cheap, accurate. Simple and elegant design. Brilliant tool for runners.
    Cons: Would have been nice to have a computer interface to download workout records... I guess.

    Summary: I am very impressed with this little unit. The software and interface have been very well thought out. It's small, light and easy to read. The Forerunner 101 is specifically designed for runners, so lacks comprehensive navigation features, though there ... read more

  • Well worth the money.

    Apr 22, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: To many to mention.
    Cons: Not as advanced as its much more expensive brethren.

    Summary: I initially purchased a Whistler GPS200 unit. The GPS200 had a ton of features, integrated maps, etc but suffered from one inexcusable flaw. It did not find the required minimum satellites (it needed 3) 9 out of every 10 times - even in the best of ... read more

    Pros: A TRULY OUTSTANDING DEVICE THAT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE !!!
    Cons: Somewhat bulky, buttons hard to read, manual could be better.

    Summary: SIMPLY INCREDIBLE !! I know, you’ve heard about all those things that make your life better, promising that overnight you’ll make more money, look 20 years younger and will become Time’s person of the year if you call an 800 number, etc. Well, this ... read more

  • The right GPS tool for sports

    Oct 8, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Lots of measurements, compact, easy to use, functional, and fairly economic.
    Cons: calories consumption for skaters not correct, need a clear view of sky for navigation

    Summary: Forerunner 101 by Garmin is a fairly sophisticated tool as long as sports are involved, at least. It is light: (55 gr or 0.6 ounces, without batteries), works with 2 1.5 volt AAA batteries (14-15 hours, typical use), and has a reasonably sized display. ... read more

    Oct 28, 2008 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Many useful features, compact, reasonable price
    Cons: Only one position format, only one datum.

    Summary: The Forerunner 101 was designed mainly for runners, but I have found that it works well for bikers, the most useful features being current, average, maximum speeds, distance, elapsed time, and grade. There is a training assistant mode. I frequently use ... read more

  • Great GPS but bigger than siblings

    Jun 10, 2007 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Nice functionality for the price
    Cons: Size is bigger than other Garmin GPS units

    Summary: I recently ordered the forerunner 101 thinking that the only difference between the 101 and 201 was the price ($30 less), need for 2 AAA batteries, and lack of a serial PC connection. After opening the package, I quickly realized that the 101 is about ... read more

  • What a waste of money!

    Rated Show
    Pros: Absolutely Nothing!
    Cons: Horrible battery life, terrible design, bad company that doesn't care about post sale customer service

    Summary: Do not buy this unit! I run as part of triathlon training. My workout plan calls for 3-4 runs a week of very specific distances. I thought this Garmin would be a great way to track distance without having to spend too much money (as I already own a ... read more

  • Why are most if not all reviews of this product so favorable?

    Oct 3, 2005 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: All the features would be great if it worked. Pros none.
    Cons: It took a long time to find signal. Then would not hold said signal.

    Summary: I live in the state of Connecticut. I run about an hour a day. Most of my running is done on roads. One or two days a week run on trails. I thought this product would be perfect measuring speed and distance no matter which way I went. I get the product ... read more

    Pros: Feature packed, very small GPS.
    Cons: No computer interface, instructions OK, but advanced users need more.

    Summary: The device is feature packed. After a while, the menús are very intuitive. The 2 things I would like to see improved on it are: 1. Latitude and Longitude should be easily seen. 2. The instruction manual is good to get you up and running, but after ... read more
