Team up the most physically challenging race in the world with the most iconic watch brand and ask them to build you a fitness-focused smartwatch — this is what you get. The Timex Ironman R300 GPS watch comes with a huge battery that will give you 25 hours of run time using GPS or 25 days of use if you’re just using the smartwatch features. With its true GPS connectivity, you can leave your phone at home on your next run, and the watch will track you the whole time.
When you do have your phone on you, the watch will deliver notifications and let you download and log your workouts, runs, and rides. Downloadable guided coaching lets you send training plans to your watch so you can hit those fitness goals, while the continuous heart rate monitoring, calorie burn tracking, and sleep quality measurements will give you insight into how all of this training is affecting you.
With a 50 meter water resistance and a comfortable silicone strap, the Timex Ironman is designed to go wherever the workout demands. And with a price point below many of the GPS watches out there, it’s a great way to get into the fitness tracking race.
