With the new Ironman 100 lap GPS Speed and Distance 5E701 watch, you will not just have an insight into your current skills. You will also get a chance to improve them.

Back in 1986, Timex launched its first multifunctional sport watch named after the famous endurance athletic event, Ironman Triatlon. This innovative watch edition changed the course of the entire fitness watch industry. During the years, the renowned sport watchmaker has constantly improved quality of this popular line, receiving a series of prestigious awards for innovations and design.
With the introduction of the Speed and Distance System, Ironman watches have become one of the best multi-sport devices on the market. Along with the GPS technology, this system includes an amazing list of features that can be highly useful for variety of outdoor activities, though the watch is primarily designed for running.
Timex Ironman Speed and Distance System consists of two parts: a GPS receiver that can be attached to the upper arm by a strap and a wrist watch. They are wirelessly connected by a radio signal. By scanning skies for satellite signals, the small and lightweight receiver searches the best geometric solution (through a process called “triangulation”) and transmits speed, distance and pace data to the watch in real time, with the almost perfect accuracy.
At a gray and green digital display, with the Indiglo night light, you can easily read accurate date and time in two time zones, which is set automatically by atomic clocks. You can also activate alarm and countdown timer. A 100 Lap Memory includes data about lap number, lap time and lap distance. While the quartz battery that powers the watch lasts for about 2 years, the life of a rechargeable GPS battery is about 12 hours.
Timex Ironman 100 lap GPS Speed and Distance 5E701 Watch is a cool looking sport watch, attractive enough to be worn in casual moments after training. It has a 40 mm case made of resin, as well as its bracelet. Finally, it is water-resistant up to 50 meters (165 feet).
