Anyone experience with Garmin Foretrex 201 series?

Have a work bonus burning a hole in my pocket, so naturally, I must buy bike stuff.
Looking at one of the wrist mounted Garmin series Forerunner or Foretrex. Just wondering how it is for tracking miles and speed. Seems like it would work for multiple bikes since your not relying on a wheel sensor to track speed. Plus, found a website I can get one for $122 for the Forerunner 201. List for $199 on the Garmin site. I think it does elevation and "breadcrumb" trail also. Go HAWKS!!!!!

Thanks for the info. I need to see one in person and look at the owners manual first but seems useful for what I need.
Selah, Wa huh? Been there many a time. How's the snow this year?
Know anyone with the last name, (or used to be) Hurst?
