Timex Ironman Global Trainer GPS Watch

Sunday, 12 December 2010  |  Gear + Gadgets

Woah.  Is this for real?  Last September, Timex released the first GPS-enabled watch under the Timex Ironman brand in the U.S.:  the Timex Global Trainer GPS enabled watch.  Finally, it’s here in Manila!

I heard only 15 of these are available in Manila, some of which found their way to the wrists of Piolo, Ani de Leon, and Coach Rio.  For the few that are left, most of us will have to work hard to raise the P22,990 retail price and scramble to the nearest Timex shop before it runs out.

I haven’t tried this watch, but it has certainly aroused my curiosity: Can the Timex Global Trainer GPS outperform the Garmin Forerunner?  If you get one, do let me know!

Here are a few reviews I’ve read:
