Timex is well known for rolling out GPS watches for the sports enthusiast, and with the $99 Timex Ironman GPS watch, their latest effort is no different. In fact, Timex claims that it is going to be the most simple GPS watch that they have launched to date, and we are simply not surprised at all with that claim. In fact, it boasts of the latest antenna technologies alongside an easy to use interface which would appeal to just about anyone, be it a seasoned triathlete or your everyday fitness enthusiast who would like to get a spot of running, swimming and cycling in from time to time.
TIMEX President & CEO Tobias Reiss-Schmidt, shared, “Our IRONMAN collection has been helping athletes cross finish lines since 1986, and we know that athletes want to do what they love, not stand around and push buttons, so we made it simpler without any compromise. TIMEX antenna technology is top of the line, and there are no hassles or extra frills to get in the way of your run. It really is the simplest GPS watch you’ll ever use.”
With the latest satellite acquisition technology within keeping track of your progress, you can also opt to share your fitness record with popular running tracking apps. Charging the Timex Ironman GPS watch is a snap — just use a micro-USB cable to hook it up to your computer and you’re good to go. No more hassles with looking for an extra charger, or to scrounge around for yet another cable. Being lightweight and easily accessible, the Ironman GPS features multisport training functionality for swimming, biking, and running, in addition to a slew of other metric displays, interval timers, and a race mode. Regardless of how far you have come in your fitness adventure, it should still have enough left in its tank to help the most dedicated of athletes complete their goals.
Expect the Ironman GPS watch to arrive in black and white styles that can be further enhanced via $14.95 interchangeable colorful straps.
