"If you do buy this watch, contact Timex and buy the 5-year warranty for $5. You will need it.

If they can improve the build quality of this product, it would be one of the best training tools out there. As it is, it's not worth the frustration.

An update: Timex has quoted me $135 to fix my watch after it stopped being waterproof.


The Timex software is very basic. I went with SportTracks instead.


You'll need the manual the first couple of times using this setup. Once you have it figured out, everything is quite easy to use.


When I first got the system, the data recorder did not function properly and had to be returned. After 14 months use, the HRM strap stopped working and had to be exchanged. After 18 months, the watch lost it's waterproofness, and is currently being repaired. But the GPS unit has never had a problem. Overall, Timex really needs to work on the quality of this product.


Having 4 separate parts to take along on each workout was annoying at first, but I learned to like it - I could use just the HRM monitor if I wanted, or add the GPS, or add the data recorder, all depending on what type of workout I was doing.


A watch this price should last longer than 18 months.


Unlike most GPS watches, this one looks like a watch.


Timex charges you for warranty repairs. That's just wrong.


When it works, this is a great watch. Accurate, easy to use, loads of workout data. It's small compared to other GPS watches since the GPS is a separate unit.

Flexible, easy to use, comfortable to wear.

Quality/reliability is terrible. You basically have to replace the whole thing every year.
