Giveaway Extravaganza: Timex Run Trainer


Sure, any device can track a run for a few hours.  But can your device track a run that’s over a 100 hours long?  Well, the Timex Run Trainer took the cake on the longest running recording battery of any ANT+ device I’ve tested – over 100 hours!  Which means that even if you used it for that 100 straight hours, you’d still be over 60 hours away from finishing up that Deca-Ironman event currently underway (and only if you’re really fast).  So, how’s that 5K coming along?

Giveaway Closes: 12:00PM Eastern (Duration: 3 Hours)
