Timex IRONMAN Run x20 GPS
For many of us, GPS technology has made running more enjoyable—freeing us from the treadmills and tracks, providing motivation when we need it and giving an undeniable sense of accomplishment when it’s all done. But it has also come with the cost of wearing a bulky device that leaves tan lines over half of our forearms. What if you could have all of the advantages of GPS, but with the same ergonomic, streamlined fit of the sports watch that you grew up with? The only thing more shocking than the comfort of the Timex IRONMAN Run x20 GPS watch is how fast you’ll go with it.
Everything You Need, Nothing You Don’t
While we’d all love to improve our vertical oscillation (once we’ve looked up exactly what it is), most runners are primarilyInterested in two things: How far and how fast? The Run x20 GPS was designed with this in mind, giving you your pace, distance and elapsed time on a crisp display you can read without breaking stride. And the fit and comfort will make you forget you are even wearing a watch…until you need it.
But What if You Want Just a Little More?
For those who want a bit more—but still believe in the beauty of simplicity — we included an interval timer. This feature gives you alerts based on distance and/or time, and is a great tool when training for your first 5K or Half Marathon. Additionally, we allow you to customize the watch display, so you choose what you want to see during your run. And we added in one of our favorite features, an audible alert every time you finish a mile or km, so you can easily keep track of your progress.
