Timex Ironman ONE GPS+

While the following post is sponsored, I think it should be noted that I thoroughly enjoyed testing out this fancy-schmancy watch. Personally, I like reading reviews. Here’s hoping you get something out of them too! As always, all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.

Thank you for your support and readership!

 

Let’s talk about fitness watches. Big, techy, heart rate monitorin’ smart watches that do pretty much everything you could want or need on a run or outdoor activity.

Timex Ironman ONE GPS+ review

While the screen isn’t tiny, my embarrassingly tiny wrists make the watch look bigger on me than on most. Do you want to know what makes this not-so-tiny screen cooler than most? It’s touchscreen!

The new Timex Ironman ONE GPS+ was designed for you to leave the bulk at home and carry the bare minimum on your runs. Your music and your messages on your run without your phone… check it out!

The ONE GPS+ is perfect for fitness lovers who want to enjoy the freedom of getting outdoors without having to completely disconnect from what is waiting for them when they return after what could easily be hours at a time.

I mean… you can choose to leave it all at home if you want to, but it’s nice to know that there are more safer, smarter, and lighter options available.

I had the pleasure of taking my ONE GPS+ out for a few test runs last week, and I’m already smitten.

This is the first watch that has taken over my need to open a running app on my phone and track my speed, distance, pace, and previous records. In fact, you can link your social accounts and automatically upload your runs into Strava, MapMyRun, and RunKeeper after each use.

I love the features I haven’t seen on other watches before, including a celebratory PR alert and a vibration to important notifications like mile marks, messages, and alerts.

(This run included several Roadie pit-stops, but you get the point.)

 

Other features that make this watch extra fun include:

• Phone-free connectivity (messaging, music, and social sharing without your phone!)

• Ability to track speed, distance, and pace in real-time

• Ability to share your performance and summaries in messages and social shares

• Wireless connectivity (to AT&T) without needing your phone on you

• Always-on, sunlight readable Qualcomm® Mirasol™ display for easy reading

• Tracking capabilities that include a custom-built safety solution (SOS alerts!)

• Built-in MP3 component that stores and plays your music

• Water resistant for up to 50 meters

 

If you aren’t necessarily wanting to measure a walk or run, you can still enjoy the features of the watch (without GPS) for 72 hours before needing to charge it again. With all of the bells and whistles in use, you can still utilize everything for an impressive 8 hours. I’m pretty sure that beats my sad couple hours of iPhone GPS battery any day.

To be fair in my review, I did experience some frustrations while trying to figure out the music and messaging features. Realizing I didn’t have bluetooth speakers or headphones to listen to my music anyways, I got over it and moved on without downloading music from my iTunes library. I will, however, revisit that option down the road. It would be nice to not have to carry my phone to play my tunes on every single run!

If you are one who likes to run with a watch that does way more than measure your heart rate and caloric burn, I highly suggest you check into the new Timex Ironman ONE GPS+.

I’ve been loving the vibrations and alerts that track my progress every step of the way!

First and foremost, I want to take a moment to acknowledge my absence from the blog yesterday. I didn’t plan on taking a day off from posting, but it just felt necessary. You see, heaven gained another beautiful angel early yesterday morning. After a short but painful battle with pancreatic cancer, my loving granddaddy, Rudy, passed in peace…

The Struggle of Meal Planning Is Real

Good morning! It’s a nippy one up in our neck of the woods… 16 degrees. What happened? I’m hoping the chill in the air breaks by lunch time, because I am finally feeling more like myself enough to run again. I’m hesitant, however, and all too familiar with this go-getter-goes-too-hard-too-fast type of pattern. Girl feels good after getting…
