Timex launched a new GPS watch recently, and while it’s intended for athletes who require more exact data when training, the new Ironman Global Trainer uses some pretty high end GPS technology in order to accurately track pace, distance, and heart rate.
The new watch features a 15 hour rechargeable battery with speed, distance, and pace data logging using a SiRFstarIII GPS system. The watch is also water resistant to a depth of 50 meters and features a customizable display that will show you up to 4 performance metrics at a time. The watch will also download your information to a computer (PC or Mac) and allow you to track the data over a longer period of time. The Global Trainer watch will also communicate with Timex’s heart rate and bike sensors using wireless technology.
The Global Trainer will be available at REI coming in May of this year, with an expected MSRP of $360.
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
