The Timex Triathlon watch gains another impressive new technology and breaks new ground again as one of the world’s first sports watch to feature tap screen technology.
Timex sports watches have always been on the leading edge of innovation and the new 150-Lap TAP screen Ironman continues Timex’s legacy, combining leading edge technology will the tried and tested features of the Ironman watch. Developed in conjunction with some of the best athletes worldwide, the new TAP screen technology is sure to put Timex at the head of the next generation of sports watches.
To use this new Timex watch, an athlete simply has to tap on the screen to activate the stopwatch timers, take lap splits or control any number of other features supported in this leading-edge watch. But tap screen technology is not the only new feature from Timex.
Modern sports science research has, for years, emphasized the importance of refueling during a competitive endurance event. The Sleek 150 Lap watch includes a configurable nutrition and hydration alarm that alerts an athlete when it is time to take extra nutrients on board.
Coupled with products like the Shotz Sports Nutrition Electrolyte Tables and Shotz Carboshotz Energy Gels, the Triathlon 150-Lap Sleek Ironman TapScreen guides you to optimal performance during marathon-effort events.
A Target Time Pacer is also included in the long feature list of innovations that athletes can take full advantage of. The pacer provides real-time progress reports based on pre-configured goals and will sound an alarm based on split times to indicate if you are on track, ahead of track or must improve your pace, allowing you to be fully aware of where you stand relative to your goals.
Real-time feedback on your performance is also presented to you, allowing you to sustain your momentum without the need to break stride. With a comfortable ergonomic fit, the Triathlon 150-Lap Sleek has a durable, yet breathable wrist strap that ensures your watch feels great on your wrist, even throughout the most arduous workouts. The watch comes in a range of colors and the digital display is in an easy-to-read, oversized format.
The watch also allows you to create advanced training routines thanks to the inclusion of three customizable workouts that can include up to 16 labelled intervals. With an impressive 150-Lap memory recall and dated training log, you can easily check your backdated sessions and compare them against current results.
Of course Timex have not forgotten any of their old tricks in this new and improved sports watch. With “standard” Ironman features such as an INDIGLO night-light with NIGHT-MODE feature, 100 meters water resistance, 100 hour chronograph stopwatch with dual line display and lap/split logging, the TapScreen watch does not sacrifice any of the traditional power that has made the Timex Ironman watch the leading sports watch of all time.
An exciting and innovative new blend of style mixed with a heavy dose of substance, the 150-Lap TapScreen Timex Triathlon Watch makes it simpler to review and measure valuable training and performance information without ever breaking stride. The new Timex sport watches with TAP screen technology are due to be released in February 2010.
