Timex has released the Ironman Run Trainer, a GPS-enabled training device that is compatible with the optional foot pod and heart rate sensors.
The unit offers a face with three or four customisable line displays, allowing users to view their preferred information during workouts. The product includes real-time pace, distance and elevation data using SiRFstarIV GPS technology. It also has an eight hour battery life and offers water resistance to 50 meters.
Like several of the brand’s products, the Run Trainer is compatible and connected. It utilises ANT+ wireless technologyto interact with the heart rate monitor and foot pod sensors.
