What Is It: GPS-enabled sport watch, complete with a heart rate monitor
Who's It For: The metric-focused runner in your life.
Why It Makes a Great Gift: Perfect for running with its large, customizable display, showing pace, speed, distance and more, all in real-time, the Timex Ironman Run Trainer features an impressive eight hours of battery life for those extra-long workouts, and is water resistant up to 50m, meaning your training doesn't have to stop in the pool. In addition to the basic measurements, the Run Trainer is also equipped with workouts, an interval time mode and even has reminders to let you know when you need to take in some water.
From a runners standpoint the unit has basically everything one could ask for. It's got complex workout support as well as simple run recording. It's got alarms and time/clock functions for those that want to use it as a day watch (with ample 10 week battery life). And finally, for those needing a countdown timer in your kitchen...it's got that too.
