Timex has announced the latest in its range of Ironman GPS watches, the R300. The company is selling it for $120 in the US, a competitive price in the market.
The R300 should last for 20 hours of GPS use on a single charge, which is very good considering the Apple Watch conks out after about 3-4 hours of GPS use. If you’re not using GPS, battery life is quoted at 25 days.
The Ironman series offers fitness workout guides from pro athletes and coaches built into the watch and offers a pretty rugged looking construction (read: not the most premium option). With 30m water resistance, sleep tracking and an always-on touchscreen it should be considered next to similar watches from Polar and Garmin if you’re in the market for a no nonsense fitness watch.
