Two words probably stood out when you saw this article: “Timex” and “GPS.” Here’s one more thing that should stand out too: “$99.95.” Put ‘em together and what have you got? The Timex Marathon GPS – a pretty fantastic option for the runner who wants reliable distance, pace and speed calculations.
- Records and displays total time, distance, pace, and speed
- Automatically records lap splits for up to 6 custom set distances
- Computes calories based on gender, age and weight
- Stores up to 30 workouts for data comparison
Of course, you have plenty of options if you’re looking for a more complicated GPS watch with a heap of advanced features including data upload, endless customized screen options, and interval timers. But watches with these features tend to cost significantly more, and some are also heavier and bulkier on the wrist. Plus you could spend days digging through the details in the owner’s manual.
Why not spend less time punching buttons on your watch and more time punching up the tempo on your next run? If you just want a simple, easy to use watch that helps you track how far you’ve traveled, the Timex Marathon GPS was built for you.
