Bozeman, MT (PRWEB) November 03, 2011
Beginning Thursday, November 3rd, 2011 Timex is putting its newly released and highly touted GPS watch for runners, the Timex Ironman Run Trainer, on sale through a $50 mail-in rebate and national online fitness retailer the Heart Rate Watch Company is ready.
"This is a great opportunity for runners to get the best price of the year on the watch we already voted as best GPS running watch for 2011", says Rusty Squire, President of the Heart Rate Watch Company. Squire continues, "The Run Trainer was already selling exceptionally well without the rebate so this really sweetens the pot just in time for Christmas shopping".
Indeed the Timex Ironman Run Trainer has been highly touted by many respected reviewers and bloggers. This GPS watch tracks speed, distance, heart rate and can even map completed runs in Map My Run or Google Earth. The watch also works with the highly regarded Training Peaks software program for post-run analysis.
While the Timex Run Trainer is much smaller than Timex's Global Trainer GPS watch it still is about 20% larger in form factor over the Garmin Forerunner 210 GPS watch, which can be considered a direct competitor of this offering. The Timex Run Trainer with heart rate will cost $179.95 after the $50 rebate as opposed to $249.99 for the Garmin Forerunner 210, so Timex has a sizeable price advantage for a watch containing similar features.
"The key with GPS watches, like the Timex Ironman Run Trainer, is to spend some time talking with an expert who has used all of these products so they can help guide your decision process because good advice is never a commodity", says Squire. He continues, "This is something that the Heart Rate Watch Company is uniquely positioned to do because, unlike 95% of all retailers, we do use and test all these products."
The lap timer, stopwatch and countdown timer are features that one would expect to find on a Timex watch product are all part of the Run Trainer. This is the first Timex GPS watch that is normal enough in size and design to use as an everyday watch.
Show that special athlete in the family your support for Christmas with the Ironman Run Trainer. It is a great place to start for the runner in the house.
