It's no longer enough to train hard; you also have to train smart if you want an edge. Enter the Timex Ironman Global Trainer speed and distance watch, which gives elite athletes the performance tools they need to succeed. The Global Trainer is equipped with a SiRFstar III GPS chip, which records your performance across several dimensions and displays the data on a customizable screen. With the Global Trainer, you can easily monitor your pace, speed, distance, elapsed time, and calories burned, helping you determine how much you've improved during your 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. Or you can challenge yourself the old-fashioned way using the integrated count-up and countdown timers, which help you measure your interval performance. The watch even includes a Performance Pacer to help you meet your finish-time goals.
The Global Trainer is more than just a pace tracker, however. Thanks to the GPS technology--which requires no calibration--climbers can use the watch to measure their altitude, along with their ascent and descent distances and rates. If navigation is your thing, the Global Trainer records up to 100 location waypoints, and offers the ability to track back old routes and create new ones. And cyclists will 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. Other features include a 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.

Today, however, the unit has stopped working. With a full charge I can turn it on and go through the configure options but when putting it into "Multisport" or "Performance" mode, it locks up. The only thing that can be done at that point is to shut it off. Nothing has gotten it to work yet.
It would have received two stars if not for my poor judgement in buying what appears to be an older model (e.g., 2010) unknowingly. The watch's integration with current fitness tracking apps is awkward. GPS struggles to find satellites. Guess if the watch is from much earlier days, then it stands to reason the battery is at the end of its useful life. Lesson-learned: caveat emptor.
I used the watch five or six times before I returned it. The first time it took a couple of minutes to find the satellites, as indicated in the instructions. However the second time (at the same physical location) it should have locked within a minute or so. Instead it searched for minutes and eventually prompted a "reset" of the GPS, after which it essentially required the same time to lock as the first time I used it. On my consecutive runs the watch asked me for a "reset", but even after accepting that it could still not lock ("no satellites found"), implying the GPS did not function - essentially rendering the watch useless.
Before I bought the watch I did some research, and the fickle GPS was mentioned quite a few times. It was unwise of me not to heed the advice given by others.
