Customer Reviews

Here''s what customers are saying about the Timex Global Speed & Distance sports watch:

...the workout data downloaded from the watch to the PC can only be used on the TrainingPeaks website, which I do not like...

...very pleased with this product for the price. Keeps its signal, easy to use and set. It is not too big...I don''t really notice it on my arm...is awesome for mountain biking, trail running and hiking...

...watch is HUGE...I have ran several times with it and it works very well. My only complaint is that it sometimes takes a while to locate a satellite...

Get your skin wet

Some problems may be caused by dry skin or exercising in the winter. If it''s hot enough the monitor will begin sending your pulse to the heart monitor watch once you start to sweat. If you don''t sweat a lot, some advocate licking the strap before you start exercising, squirt some water between your skin and the strap or you can use a little heart monitor gel.
