Question about Garmin Forerunner 201 GPS Receiver
It is actually meant to last for 15 hour per charge, and it lasting just 5-6 hours simply means it is either not fully charged or the battery is weak.
It uses a lithium ion rechargeable battery, and it can be replaced, you will have to open it up to be able to locate the battery.
If you are not familiar with such activities, i will strongly advice you get a repairman replace the battery for you.
Since taking a walk with it wont take up to 5-6 hours, it will be best you leave it that way, and try to recharge as soon as it drops, but if you use it for over that amount of time in a day then you can replace it. the battery is located right underneath the wrist band used in strapping the hand.
