Giveaway Extravaganza: Timex Global Trainer


The Timex Global Trainer will easily track you across any sport (or medieval battlefield).  Which is exactly what Mythbusters did last summer.  They combined the unit with knights in shinning armor last summer to measure distance and speed/pace.  How much more manly awesome can you get?  Ok, good point, they could of added a chainsaw and explosions.  But with the 4th of July just around the corner you could re-enact their test and add those two last items yourself.  Sound good?

Giveaway Closes: 11:59PM Eastern (Duration: 3 Hours)
