Better than Garmin!,
This review is from: Timex Global Trainer Speed and Distance with Heart Rate GPS Watch (Sports)
Hi, i had lost my Garmin 305 into the sea while doing windsurfing... so had to look for another GPS watch, as using it also for running and biking.
After some reviews and hesitation, went for the Timex... and actually, i'm very happy.
Less big than garmin, easier to wear + lighter, the screen / display is not too small at all (vs. some reviews). I've normal eyes and can read without an issue my speed or other data on the 4 quadrants screen.
Used on half marathon, the distance was perfectly right at 50m. Time to set-off satellites, once done once and without reset, is pretty fast.
haven't used all the settings yet (not yet open the book as it is very intuitive software). Actually, this latter point is the biggest + i'll give. garmin watch software sucks so much, it makes you feel you are in the 80s when user friendly concept was not even existing. Timex is much better, though not yet to a 2010 level i find.
Anyhow, for a cheaper price, definitely worth buying.
