Timex Ironman Run Trainer: a Runner's Watch that Works for Cyclists

By January 21, 2013

Follow me on:

Timex Run Trainer WatchDoes it sound crazy to suggest a runner's watch to a cyclist?

If you're a bike rider, the natural inclination for tracking performance would be to turn toward a cyclocomputer, those nifty devices that strap on your handlebars and give you information about your speed, distance, cadence, max/average speeds, etc.

However, I wanted to take a different look at this, and explore the suitability of what's basically a runner's watch, the Timex Ironman Run Trainer with GPS and Heart Rate Monitor, for use in cycling applications.

Timex does make a cyclocomputer, of course, the Cycle Trainer 2.0, but there are some features in the Run Trainer watch that can have specific benefits to cyclists that the Cycle Trainer simply doesn't have. And this review tells you all about it:  Timex Ironman Run Trainer - a runner's watch for cyclists.
