Would my ancient 301 still work????
*Goes and looks for it, it is tipping it down and the kit room needs a clear out anyway*

no reason why it shouldn't
I assume my 910XT works which I replaced with my fenix 5 a couple of years ago

My 305 still works. Holds charge for about 2 hours and syncs to Garmin.

I'm probably going to send it to rerun to see if they can find a home for it

I was surprised! It was set to cycling and I remember when I was forced to go from running to cycling in 2009 I used the 301 strapped around pipe lagging onto my handlebars... It hasn't been used since that year I reckon, as I had to buy a cycling computer for racing... and hasn't been charged since either. Not sure how long it holds a charge for, I only went out for less than half an hour's run/walk but it is a start...

DC Rainmaker did a test of his old 305 recently: dcrainmaker.com Old Garmins don't die, they just lose battery life....

Got something to say?
