The Timex has so much more customization to it than the Forerunner. I have something like 15 custom fields to pick from to display on 4 lines of screen each time I look down at the thing on a run. I'm talking about heart rate, speed, avg. speed, pace, avg. pace, distance, calories, etc., etc., etc. By comparison, the garmin doesn't even do speed (just avg. speed) and you can't pick from much else as far as I could tell.
Also, I love that this watch is water resistant (up to 50m). I don't swim regularly but I can see myself getting this thing wet from time to time and not ever having to worry about frying the battery. The Garmin isn't waterproof. That's a big difference in my opinion.
I really like the size of this watch compared to the more expensive options out there. It can almost pass for an everyday watch on my wrist which is pretty cool. the regular display is big and bright and has all the classic Ironman features like Indiglo and alarms. Its as if timex wants you to replace your everyday sports watch with this guy. I've worn Timex watches in the past so the menu options (chrono, alarm, timer, etc.) were pretty familar and easy to use.
Here's another bonus: I've heard that the GPS watches tend to take awhile in acquiring signal from the satellites. the first time I did it it took about 30 seconds outside my house. However the next time (and subsequently thereafter) I powered on the GPS from my home, it acquired the signal almost instaneously like it remembers the location.Read more ›
I still think the watch is literally huge and at least 20%-25% of size could easily be shaved off to make something less unwieldy. Again, my Garmin FR210 has 90% of the same software functions and is half as large. Just to give you an idea of the size difference, I can easily fit the FR210 on top of the TRT no problems. If they make a 2012 or 2013 version of this watch, they need to seriously shrink it down. Size aside, the weight is hardly noticeable once you wear it after a while, I hardly ever notice it on my wrist unless it gets caught on something because it's so damned large; I can barely put my motorcycle jacket on without either taking the watch off or undoing the cuffs to their largest diameter first. But enough about its mammoth girth.
This thing seriously needs a new strap design. The stiff rubber doesn't conform to any wrist shape I've ever seen in my entire life, but it's perfectly round enough to fit around a bottle with no issue. Conversely, the Garmin FR910XT makes use of an ingenious design: make one arm of the strap swing freely like an actual watchband. Imagine that, a technology company using a piece of design tech from a regular watch, something Timex has made since 1854. Seeing this literally blows my mind, they got scooped at their own game.Read more ›
If you don't care for your cadence then this is a really good watch and in that case I would definitely rate Timex Ironman Run Trainer at 5 stars. For the money it gives so much features that there is no question that it is superior to similarly priced Garmin watches. And if after a while it does not exhibit any issues with battery like my Garmin 405cx did then this will be even greater watch. I found myself constantly comparing Timex Ironman Run Trainer to the Garmin 405cx which is more expensive watch (I bought it for ~ $320 year and half ago) and most of the time the Trainer is on par with Garmin.
But I do care for cadence. And thus I have to use foot pod. Now look carefully. When you attach your foot pod the Timex Ironman Run Trainer AUTOMATICALLY OVERRIDES GPS distance and pace data with that coming from foot pod. I repeat - AUTOMATICALLY OVERRIDES. Which means that you don't really have a GPS watch anymore and the only way you can use GPS data from that point on is by looking at nice trace of your run on Google maps or whatever. But your distance and speed recordings are now no more accurate than would be those measured by any non-GPS watch with a foot pod. My small brain cannot grasp what the big idea is behind this design. Why on the earth someone would decide to override data from accurate equipment with inaccurate data from much less precise device is beyond my understanding. Don't Timex engineers understand that we buy GPS watch not just for looking at a map, but for getting accurate distance and speed measurements?
Now look, I understand that there are times when you would prefer to have foot pod data over that one from GPS.Read more ›
