Timex (not the Seller) provided excellent customer to resolve my situation

  • Summary: Update: Not sure what's up w/ the Seller, but my Timex watch was to come with a heart rate monitor and AC adaptor--it didn't.

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.

Well worth the investment...provided that you use it!

stockfield, Ebay
8 May 2013
  • Summary: In training for my 2nd (sprint) triathlon, and also focusing on losing weight (I was 300 lbs last Spring...I've lost 91 lbs since)....I knew I needed to get more "optimal" with my efforts. I used to burn out too quickly when I ran and I realized that perhaps that because I was so fearful of going too slow, I was going too fast!
