    Garmin forerunner 101 vs. 201

    Hi guys, I know there are many threads on these 2 GPS's but I have yet to find one comparing these two. I'm about to order one in a few hours, but I'm not sure which one is better. Any input would help.

    Forerunner 101 vs 201

    I have two forerunner 201's. They have worked flawless for years. It has a built in rechargable lithium ion battery.
    The 101 uses a regular AAA battery. I would buy the 201. It comes with a charger as well.

    Got to Garmin's website for detailed information.

    Hm, I see the Forerunner 101 is $114.27 and the Forerunner 201 is $149.99. Is the 36 extra bucks worth it?

    its cheaper on ebay. its worth not having to change batteries. the price of batteries can add up fast

    I had a 101. It's not as water tight as the 201. If you get the 101 wet it'll leak into the battery area and corrode the batteries and contacts. 201 is the way to go. I've had mine underwater several times and it has never given me a problem.

    Hmmm, not sure why but I'm leaning towards the 101, although I have searched many people prefer the 201.

    I think the 101 might be good for me only because If i forgot to change batteries I would always carry an extra set, whereas on the 201 if i forget to charge the battery, there's not an extra set to charge. Am I correct?
