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 present distance with Auto Lap. Using Auto Pause, the 201 stops the timer automatically when you slow down or stop during your workout.
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, displaying your goal pace compared to your current pace - 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.
As an added benefit, you can analyze and store data from your workouts using free Garmin Training Center software, which lets you analyze 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. Or, upload your workout data to MotionBased.com, Garmin's web-based application that provides in-depth analysis of your workouts, online mapping and route sharing that will take your training to the next level.
