I have a Timex Ironman Flix 100 and use it all the time in races. It seems fine for me although I can understand why some would find it a bit fiddly and the function buttons aren't exactly intuitive. I'm also not keen on the fairly small split time displays which are just about impossible for my aging eyes during a race.
My partner is getting into running and is harping on about having her own watch with suitable functions ... dunno what's wrong with a travel alarm clock and a rubber band - but she's fickle :-)
So, who thinks their watch is fantastic, easy to use with clear displays ?
I must admit, I don't use 100 memory locations on mine .. 26 at most for marathon mile splits - then I put the results into a spreadsheet .. dunno why, doesn't seem to make me go any faster !
So, it needs to hold and recall at most 26 times.
But I do like being able to set the watch to bleep at various time intervals for speed sessions and for telling me when I should be at mile or km markers in races. That would also be a necessity for any watch considered.
Any suggestion for a suitable timepiece for her outdoors ?
Thanks and good running
