- 100-Lap Memory with Recall of Bodylink system data
- Navman “3D” GPS Sensor. displays Speed and Distance Data
- Metric, English or Nautical units
- 3-mode Countdown Timer
Timex watches that are compatible with the accurate Navman GPS sensor display real-time Speed and Distance information during your sessions and allow you to set pace alerts that notify you when your are running too slow or too fast and distance alerts that trigger an alarm when you have covered a specified distance.
Weighing in at just 2.7 ounces, the GPS sensor is a little smaller than a portable MP3 player and can be attached externally – securely fastened to your upper arm – with a comfortable strap, or clipped to your running shorts. The sensor continuously tracks the GPS signal for 13 hours before the battery needs replacing, transmissiting digitally to the watch piece. The sensor uses Coded FM transmission to prevent interference from exercise equipment and power lines.
The Ironman T5E701 watch caters to serious and profession runners and has most of the features runners need, including 100-laps of memory storage, a clear, digital display with two data lines and countdown timer feature. Unfortunately this watch does not have Interval Timer Mode, a feature that would offer seriously benefits to runners wishing to perform alternating timed training cycles such as sessions of 3 minutes hard/2 minutes easy, then repeated – although probably not something that all athletes require consider if this is important to you.
The watch also features a continuous odometer that tallies up the total distance for a workout or group of workouts – a nice touch. While the watch piece is water resistance to 100 meters, Triathletes and Swimmers will be disappointed to know, the sensor, while splash-resistant, is NOT designed for use in water.
Being a Timex Triathlon Ironman Watch, you can expect this sports watch to be durable and reliable offering all the Ironman features including dual-time zones, separate daily, weekly and weekend alarms, INDIGLO night-light with NIGHT-MODE feature.
