Timex T5K549 Ironman Run Trainer GPS Watch is a great training tool that offers a customizable display with up to four data lines and 15-workout downloadable memory with dated summary (1,000 max. laps). This feature loaded watch has a high sensitivity GPS that accurately measures pace, speed and distance without excessively draining the battery. With its easy adjustable wrist band and compatibility with ANT+TM foot pod sensors it offers athletes the flexibility to customize their exercise routine. Some reviews have pointed out that when you attach the foot pod and the GPS at the same time, the Timex Ironman trainer automatically overrides the GPS for distance and speed data and does not offer the ability to combine the data from both to give even more accurate results.
This trainer GPS watch is durable and offers an eight-hour battery and 50 meter water resistance. The watch is very easy to setup and use and is also comfortable to wear with a well ventilated wrist band. The Timex Ironman also complements your workout with interval timers in addition to hydration and nutrition reminders. Timex Training Peaks is a good program to record and graph all the activities online.
Some reviewers find this GPS watch to be bulky for everyday wear. Also the battery can drain very fast if the sensors are not switched off.
Overall, Timex T5K549 Ironman Run Trainer GPS Watch makes a great gear to have for all your runs and even the treadmill. If you like to go on long runs, exploring new places it offers a package of usability and functionality with customizable screens that you can scroll through with the push of one button during your run.
