Strengths: The monitor face is large enough to see the numbers clearly. The best function is being able to see my pace in real time, which has become a key factor in my runs as opposed to speed/mph. Easy and reliable data download to PC makes for fascinating analysis of a run!
Weaknesses: My left knuckles are scraped from being dragged along the ground like Neanderthal man by the weight of the half-brick on my left wrist! But seriously, the 201 is on the bulky side and the small rubber capped function buttons are fiddly to press while running.
Overall: Having a 201 has given me a new dimension to my runs (not saying I'm any faster but I have a lot more information about what I'm doing). Using the 201 with SportTracks software (as opposed to Garmin Training Center) is great - the former allows you to export your run route as a map in .jpg format and can even plot it onto Google Earth. Good marks overall but the bulky size of the watch is an irritation which is why I'd love to get my hands on the altogether sleeker and sexier 205!
