GlobalSat from Taiwan is about to launch a new training GPS with the new GPS chipset from SiRF and on the outside it looks like a Garmin Forerunner 201 with colors. However on the inside it varies since the Garmin does not use the SiRF chipset that will receive signals better than other commonly used chipsets in training GPS devices. It will also include a Barometric Altimeter to correct mishaps in GPS altitude data - and thats nice :-)
We miss the heart rate opportunity on the new product compared to the Garmin Forerunner 301. For many athletes could this be an affordable option to the new Garmin Forerunner 305 that will probably be a bit more pricey with its heart rate function.
Have a nice Christmas!
