Timex T5K267 Global Trainer GPS Watch gives athletes the performance tools they need to succeed. With the Global Trainer, athletes can easily monitor their pace, speed, distance, elapsed time, and calories burned, helping them determine how much they have improved during training period. The watch also includes a 20-workout memory with dated summaries. As a result, athletes can record up to 1,000 laps of information and then download the data to TrainingPeaks.com, a free online training log site.
 
The inbuilt GPS is easy to program and provides lot of data. Without any calibration it can be used to measure altitude, along with ascent and descent distances and rates. Cyclists love the Global Trainer's ANT+ compatibility, which coordinates with third-party bike power meters and sensors to measure a bike's cadence and speed/distance. Users love other additional features like Multisport Event Mode that records several activities and transitions in a single sequence; a customizable screen display that shows up to four windows of information; a hands-free option that automatically stars and stops data capture functions; and a rechargeable battery.
 
A few reviewers find this watch to be little bulky. At times, the Global Trainer may take few extra seconds to get a lock on satellite signal and signal may drop easily in some locations.
 
Overall, Timex T5K267 Global Trainer is an excellent training tool for athletes. Timex stands behind its product and provides good customer service. Train harder and smarter – says Timex Global Trainer.
