Giveaway Extravaganza: Timex Run Trainer 2.0 GPS Running Watch


Yes, that’s a glass of chocolate milk. When I went sifting through my library of product photos for the single shot to use for the Timex Run Trainer 2.0 giveaway, I stumbled upon the above photo. It was in a folder called ‘Random’. Also in that folder was this:


I don’t really have an explanation for why I have a picture of the TRT2 with a cupcake. The chocolate milk I can understand – after all, it has a ‘Nutrition Alerts’ function that puts this watch completely in my ‘favorites’ category. It will remind you to both eat and drink based on the time intervals of your choosing. Pretty cool.

Of course, it does everything else you’d expect a GPS watch these days to do – including tracking your pace and distance, both indoors and outdoors – as well as all the heart rate goodness. And full waterproofing 50 meters! But most importantly, it clearly seems to go well with a cupcake.
