Introduction
Wrist Strap
1. With the strap open, place the Forerunner on your wrist.
2. Slide the end of the strap through the connector.
3. Adjust to fit comfortably and secure the strap using the Velcro. Do not adjust too tightly
around your wrist as this may cut off blood circulation.
To add the strap extension:
1. Slide the end of the existing strap through the connector on the extension with the Velcro
oriented the same direction on each strap.
2. Place on your wrist or arm.
3. Slide the end of the extension through the existing connector.
4. Adjust to fit comfortably and secure the strap using the Velcro. Do not adjust too tightly
around your wrist/arm as this may cut off blood circulation.
To remove the wrist strap from the Forerunner:
1. Place your Forerunner on a cloth or soft surface to avoid scratching the case.
2. While holding the Forerunner steady with one hand, use a jewelers band pin removing tool
or a very soft flat head screwdriver to catch the spring bar’s loaded stem and pull it back
enough for the band to clear the case’s edge.
3. To reinstall, insert the spring bar into the wristband and place one side of the spring bar
into one pinhole.
4. Compress the spring bar, and snap it into the other pinhole. Be sure that the spring bars are
secure in the pinholes before using your Forerunner.

Introduction
Charging the Battery
CHARGING THE BATTERY
The Forerunner 201 operates on a rechargeable lithium-ion battery. This battery lasts as
long as 15 hours when fully charged. To recharge the battery, be sure to wipe the contacts
dry, if needed, then snap the AC recharging cradle to the unit with the 4-contact end in first
(shown below). Connect to a power source. Full recharge time should take between 1-3
hours. The battery must be charged at least 2 hours before initial use.
When the Forerunner 201 is connected to the
battery charger and powered off, you see this
screen to indicate that batteries are charging.
Battery usage icon shows
an estimate of battery life
left. Four squares with the
battery outline indicates a
full battery.
When external power is
applied, the battery outline
disappears..
x
)
NOTE. If the unit has been stored for a long period of time (battery fully
discharged), it may require up to 30 minutes of charging before it powers on
and/or indicates charging. The Forerunner’s memory stores your data indefinitely.
Battery life may be decreased in extreme temperatures or as the battery ages.
WHAT IS GPS?
The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a system of 24 satellites that circle the earth
twice a day in a very precise orbit and transmit information to earth. The Forerunner must
continuously “see” at least three of these satellites to calculate your location and track your
movement. At times, additional satellites may be needed to determine a location. If some of
the satellites in view get blocked or “shaded,” the receiver can simply use an alternate satellite
to maintain the location fix.
Because the Forerunner relies on satellite signals to provide you with navigation guidance,
the receiver needs to have an unobstructed, clear view of the sky for best performance. In a
nutshell, the GPS receiver’s view of the sky generally determines how fast you get a location
fix, or if you get a fix at all. GPS signals are relatively weak and do not travel through rocks,
buildings, people or metal, so remember to keep a clear view of the sky at all times for best
performance.
Your Forerunner needs to be given the opportunity to find or Autolocate itself (“initialization”). Once you initialize the unit to a location, it typically computes a fix within a couple
minutes.
Longer initialization (Autolocate) is only necessary:
• The first time you use your Forerunner (new from the factory).
• After the receiver has been moved over 500 miles (with the power off from the last time
you used it.
Given GPS limitations, allow for some error in calculations. Train accordingly and with
common sense. GPS is to be used as a reference tool.
Visit the Garmin web site at www.garmin.com for more information on GPS.
Getting Started
Down to the
Basics
1
Getting Started
Turning on your
Forerunner
STARTING UP THE FORERUNNER 201
After the Forerunner is completely charged, it is ready for use. Allow the Forerunner time
to track satellites and determine your position the first time you use it. Upon startup, the
GPS signal bar appears. As the Forerunner 201 locates more satellites and the signal strength
increases, the bar moves to the right. The window disappears after the Forerunner 201 has a
satellite lock. It is recommended not to start your workout until the Forerunner has a satellite
lock and knows your location. Remaining battery life displays underneath the GPS
signal bar. Turn to page x for information about recharging the Forerunner 201.
To turn on the Forerunner 201:
Welcome Screen
1. Press and hold the POWER button until the Welcome Page is displayed, then
release.
GPS Satellite
Indicator
2. After the Welcome Page disappears, the Timer Mode is displayed with the GPS Signal Bar.
The satellite dish icon on the left side of the screen flashes while the Forerunner determines
your location.
GPS Signal Bar
2
Autolocate Mode
3. Leave the Forerunner with a clear view of the sky for 15-30 minutes initially. If the Forerunner does not detect any satellites, a message appears asking if you are indoors. Selecting
‘Yes’ shuts off the GPS to conserve battery life for indoor practice. Selecting ‘No’ prompts
another question asking if the unit has been moved hundreds of miles. Choose ‘Yes’ to have
the unit Autolocate the satellite signals (Also use this option if you are having problems
receiving satellites the first time you use the Forerunner.) The word “Locating..” appears in
the signal bar area when in Autolocate mode. After the first use, it should only take less than
a couple minutes to acquire satellites.
4. When the Forerunner acquires enough satellite signals to determine your location, the satellite dish icon on the left side of the screen stops flashing and the GPS Signal Bar disappears.
MAIN MODES
All of the information needed to operate the Forerunner 201 is found on two main modes
(or display screens). These modes are the Timer Mode and Menu Mode. Press the MODE
Button to cycle through the 2 modes.
