Garmin Forerunner 201 - $20 Mail in Rebate at Amazon
Garmin is offering a $20 mail in rebate on the popular Garmin Forerunner 201 when bought through Amazon. Right now the price is $114.99 - $20 Rebate = $94.99 with free shipping from Amazon. The rebate is good through April 17th. The device is still a popular item even though the new Forerunner 205 launched earlier this year.
I have the Forerunner 201 and am currently testing the Forerunner 205 – see related article. I’ll say that the Forerunner 201 is still relevant and useful to many, especially at this attractive price; it still connects to the PC, still gets training data on your runs and still helps train. Briefly, the Forerunner 205 does have dramatically improved reception in tough areas like under tree cover and in “urban canyons” and the Forerunner 205 has improved training features, including the “Courses” feature that allows you to race yourself on the same course versus a previous run. If you are budget minded, are running in the open and aren’t turned on by some of the advanced training features, the Garmin Forerunner 201 is a good choice. Interested in the Forerunner 205? We'll be writing up our review in the next couple of weeks.
