View Full Version : Ultra-Marathons (Foretrex?)

This may be alittle off-topic but I've been dancing around either buying a
310XT or Timex Global Trainer for use during my 50milers as they have the necessary battery life....

But then I realized that the Foretrex (301, 401) has an extended battery life & operates on simple batteries so I could potentially use it for much, much greater distances (100milers?)...and they use Garmin Connect!!!

So as someone familiar with the Forerunner line, I guess I'm asking how the Foretrex differentiates - I realize one is designed more for hiking/treking/mapping but would it fulfill my needs of time/distance-covered?

Thanks in advance!!! :)
