Alert features are really good when training at certain heart rates. Big display
Can take some time to pick up satellites. Very ocassionally loses signal
An excellent product that has really helped me improve.

BRILLIANT

1. Heart beats per minute for each interval.
2. Good screen
3. Fabulous value for money against the 305 and 405.
4. 15 hour battery (the 405 only has 8 hours!!)
None so far
I got this after reading the reviews of the 305 and 405. The 405 seemd unreliable, the 305 looked too bulky. Halfords sell the 305, and I tried it on, and it was huge!!

The 301 does everything I want it to, having 2 screens, one for HR, the other for pace is brilliant.

No probs with accuracy, not working or finding signals.

I would recomend it!!!!

GREAT TRAINING PARTNER SHAME ABOUT THE RECEPTION

Very easy to use, create workouts, and upload run detail for analysis. Seems accurate on distance so far.
Loss of signal or reception when running causing loss of distance where straight lining occurs between points. Inconsistency of grade when running same routes
Virtual Partner makes it all worthwhile, when you have to run alone. I think it's a great running aid and worth the money I paid.

GREAT GADGET

Software great for recording totals and analysis
GPS takes a couple of minutes to find you.
Signal lost sometimes.
Great tool - I would recommend this to anyone doing long distances, either running or on the bike.
Price has now come down so even better. I have used mine for over a year.

GREAT PIECE OF KIT I HAVE THE OLDER VERSION AND BRIL

I have the older version which I think has better access to the buttons when clipped to your bike it like buying a top of the range sports car it dose exactly what you ask it to do. I could put down that it has a large screen allows for plenty of data to be displayed (up to 4 fields simultaneously,and reliable distance counter, reasonably reliable HRM. but if you have read the other reviews then you know that,
It does lose signal in and around trees but what GPS do sent'
Its a great GPS for the money I am a Adventure Race planner and Director which put on You Adventure race in Scotland and it helps me design and plan race routes just wish I could afford more of Garmin mapping and GPS kits then I could do a better job on the maps
