Timex Ironman Global Trainer GPS + Heart Rate Monitor Watch
Attention serious gadget/fitness addicts. Your watch has arrived. TheTimex Global Trainer GPS with heart rate monitor ($325), exclusively at REI. No, it isn’t the first watch to offer dual GPS and heart rate monitoring features, but our inner 5th grade geek is somewhat partial to the All-American Timex Ironman brand. It also gives the competition a reason to worry by packing SIRFstar III GPS, water resistance to 50m, ANT+ compatibility, and training software for both PC and Mac. We won’t get too deep into the nitty-gritty, but notable details of this watch include the ability to record 100 GPS waypoints, recall 50 custom routes, and customize the display to show 4 windows of information all on the screen. Now how’s that for multitasking, Apple?
The internal lithium-ion battery can also be recharged by plugging it in to your computer via the included USB cable, and it’s also compatible for Timex bike and third-party bike power sensors that use ANT+. If for some reason you hold a grudge against REI, this device should hit stores globally in September.
