Timex Ironman Global Trainer

Amazon Shopper, Amazon
1 March 2014
  • Summary: Overall this watch works great, there are some days the GPS has trouble finding a signal which can be frustrating when its a clear sunny day. I usually start the watch 5-10 mins prior to my run but when it takes 15-20 with several resets it can be frustrating. Outside of that occasional issue the heart and cadence monitors work flawlessly and the watch functions well with a good battery life.

I am happy with the watch

Joe Pinter, Amazon
7 February 2014
  • Summary: I do like this watch. It is my first GPS watch and not bad at all. I have had it for a couple years now. It has held up well. It is nice having 4 screens at one time. The only thing I am not a big fan of is the size of the watch. It is a little on the big side. Also, I'm not sure if the battery would stay charged through a whole Ironman. I think the battery would definitely hold up on a half Ironman or less.

Good GPS watch to serve the basic needs

Yeoh Kok Peng, Amazon
25 November 2013
  • Summary: I have a very bad experience on MotoActv, so I switched to a basic GPS watch, and found this one a lot better compare to 'touch screen & color display' on MotoActv. If you need just a simple GPS watch to track distance, pace, calorie, etc. this can be a good choice. Battery can last longer, although the size is a bit huge, but not heavy, consider OK. Ops, no more music from my GPS watch, but it just simply serves my purpose and hope it is reliable.

Great multisport GPS watch

Mike, Amazon
28 August 2013
  • Summary: The watch is awesome. If you are doing triathlons, and need a multisport watch that is water resistant, this is the way to go. I gave it four stars because sometimes the watch takes a long time to lock the satelites. Garmin watches have a better satelite reception, but a similar watch to this one in Garmin costs almost double.

Great Watch

Eduardo, Amazon

  • Summary: Customizable screens with different information, you can create different timers training tailored to the fences to make. The GPS works great, precise location relative to cardinal points, also speed and distance. Very versatile, good value for money purchase.

  • Summary: It is working very well, battery life very good and the gps is fine. The only bad point is the sofware (training peaks) to manage rhe data.

Great watch to train with

Angel Rodriguez, Amazon
7 December 2012
  • Summary: I really like this watch. I mainly use it while running and biking (I have not tested it for swimming), and it is a great tool. My only cons is that it takes sometimes a while to acquire a GPS signal where I live, so it can be annoying sometimes. But other than that I really like it.
