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.
Summary: This watch has everything I need to improve my workouts! This is my first year with the watch and i was able to cut 23 minutes on my half marathon time! It works great and you can see how you are doing every step of the way! I really recomend it!
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.
Summary: A MUST while training. tells me how my body is working from the inside. Perfect for any kind of competition (Marathon, Triathlon, Mountain Bike, Hiking, etc). When trying to connect to computer it gets a little tricky to make it work.
Summary: I am an Age Group Triathlete. When I went shopping for a GPS watch to track my training I found that for the price the Timex Global Trainer was the best value. This watch does all I need and was no where near as expensive as it's competitors. Along with Training Peaks I can dowload all my workouts and races.
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: 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.
Summary: this has been a great training tool! my only two cons would be the size is not suitable for small wrists and it takes awhile to acquire satallites where I live early in the morning for some reason
