Will not last.

Kindle Customer, Amazon
28 January 2015
  • Summary: I have had this watch for to years now and I loved it. Yes is a little big as some others have said but you are wearing a GPS receiver on your wrist so what do you expect. It has done everything that I have wanted it to do from tracking all of my runs to going through the mud on my bike rides.

Less would be more

  • Summary: I have had this watch for over 6 months now. Way to many features for my liking. Too complicated to set. Huge watch. I don't wear anymore due to size, very irritating with plastic band. Hoped I was getting something similar to the old on that had a GPS transmitter.

Very cool, but not for me

  • Summary: The clasp of this watch dug into my wrist. Also, the stopwatch feature was only accurate to seconds (not tenths or hundredths). I returned it, and now I am trying out an Ambit 2S.

It is really big!

  • Summary: I returned this watch after ordering it and got a smaller GPS watch for running. I did like all the features of this watch compared to some much models which cost a hundred or two hundred more. But once I got it home and put it on my wrist, I was amazed at how big it was. It was huge.

Good For Running, Swimming only Outdoors, Calorie Burn Must Be Off

  • Summary: I picked this up thinking that I will be the next great triathlete. Not really, I picked this up because Sports Authority had it mis-priced and I got it for like $200 off (plus I received a $25 Gift Certificate too!).

  • Summary: I just returned my Timex and went with an easier to use Garmin 210. The unit itself is ok. I liked the way it fit on my wrist (had a Garmin 305 before and never liked the way it fit), but I did find that the pace was off.

Buy if you need a waterproof GPS, but not if you're into tracking your data

  • Summary: Timex Ironman Global Trainer With GPS Watch - Speed + Distance Before I say why I didn't like the Timex Ironman Global Trainer, I should say that I thought it was easy to use with intuitive buttons. I was using it like a pro within a few minutes.

Bulky, slow to aquire sats, but works as advertised.

MW47714, amazon.com
31 July 2011
  • Summary: The device is big and bulky, but not too bad once you get moving. It takes longer than expected to acquire satellites, but once acquired, tracking is good. Also included in the box is a "wrist-sized" handlebar attachment for cycling. USB attachment for charging and data upload to PC (and Mac?).

Pretty Good Product

  • Summary: Got this as a Christmas present and have been using it ever since. Yes, it is huge but it is not a watch. I have not had problems acquiring a signal. Some have mentioned inaccuracy but I think this is a problem with all such devices. Recently on a group run, there were four gps devices.
