Forerunner® 201

Part Number: 010-00328-07

Overview

The Forerunner 201 offers athletes a personal training device with GPS that measures speed, distance, pace and calories burned, and runs on a rechargeable lithium-ion battery. After you run, connect your Forerunner 201 to your computer to store and analyse your workout.

Train Hard

The Forerunner 201 is packed with workout-enhancing features that make your training that much easier. You can set alarms that sound when you reach a certain distance or time or when you exceed a certain pace. Start a new lap automatically after a preset distance with Auto Lap®. Using Auto Pause®, the 201 stops the timer automatically when you slow down or stop during your workout.

Meet Your Virtual Training Partner

Use Forerunner's unique training tool, Virtual Partner®, to help you meet your training goals. Simply enter the distance and time or pace/speed you want to maintain during your workout. Virtual Partner appears on the Forerunner as a tiny runner that "runs" alongside of you — so you can see at a glance whether you're keeping up or falling behind. To complete your workout and meet your goal, just stay ahead of the Virtual Partner.

Track Your Progress

As an added benefit, you can analyse and store data from your workouts using free Garmin Training Center® software, which lets you analyse data with interactive graphs that chart your pace, time and distance. Overlay your run on a map so you can pinpoint specific areas and see how elevation and other factors affect your performance.
