Timex Run Trainer GPS Watch

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am looking high and low for this watch :phew: :phew: :phew:

Does anyone knows where to buy this watch in Singapore and what is the estimated price?

Thanks in advance.

I made the following comment on the Timex Ru Trainer GPS in another thread on GPS watch:

I know a lot of people says the watch is not available in Singapore. I make an inquiry to Timex sg distributor - RSH Limited and was told that the watch is available at Stadium Ngee AnnCity #B2-15-23. I have yet to verify this for myself or the retail price.

I will be making a trip to Stadium this Friday to verify availability and price (and hopefully pic). Any sgrunners who beat me to it, kindly update. :thumbsu:

Hi All,

FYI, I spotted 1 set of this for sale at $529 at a watch shop in JE MRT station. The watch shop is just near the down escalator.

Tekko, way much more expensive that what you have paid for.

Regards,

Teng Hin

$529 for the Timex Run Trainer is like kenna carrothead! :startle: :thumbsd:

Mr Khoo, you sure you see the correct model or not? That price range sounds like the Global Trainer to me leh. :unknw:

Personally I think anything more than SGD300 is on the high side as you can get it for around USD220 on amazon.

An update for you guys. I regret to inform that I have scout out Stadium NAC. They do have an impressive range of Timex watches there (quite possibly more than I see in any other RSH outlets) but they do not have the Timex Trainer GPS. Worse when I asked the staff, they have no idea what I was talking about. What a joke that the authorised dealer for Timex in Spore is so poorly trained. And even more perplexing that they are not bothering to bring it in when there is clearly demands for the watch. Oh well.. guess its back to the online options.

I've just gotten a 2nd hand unit off a forumer.

Has not run yet, but it's so different from Garmin.

Using TrainingPeaks need getting use to too.

I used a dormant email account to register. I used tarazz.com: http://amazon3.tarazz.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1/183-2633585-1877720?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=timex+run+trainer. Cheapest now is US$185. Check out the shipping options and charges before buying.

Wanna ask: Why is the Timex Global Trainer (US$159) is less expensive compared to the Timex Run Trainer S n D trainer (US$216) on Amazon?

Looking at the features, Global will have a bit more? While Run Trainer got larger screen?

Anyone opinion? :)

Thx.

Dropped by Harvey Norman Milliena Walk and confirm what bro sgsoonhoe has mentioned about the availability of the Timex Run Trainer. At $529, its a big premium to pay considering that you can get at Amazon for ard USD223.

Here, GPGT!!

    • OhMyGod, 50 pushups, well done ūüĎć ¬† Saw Lexus Tan facebook, he own self say know qi gong,¬†can apply.¬† ¬† I scare scare, should I call?¬†
    • Slightly OT, but from the Straits Times article quoted by Lady Ice: A time of 2:46:57 is fast of course. Impossibly fast for a slow runner like me, but whenever I look at race results from marathons elsewhere in the world, and compare it to the times of our best runners of countries in Southeast Asia, even if one were to exclude the times of African runners from the equation, our runners here in SE Asia appear to be outclassed. I've always wondered why???¬†ūü§Ē Even in Japanese marathons, the Japanese winner's times are usually at 2:30++ on average. Are we at some disadvantage because we live in a hot climate, compared to those in temperate countries? When I mentioned to a runner from Victoria (AUS) that I usually run in temps of¬†27-33C, his jaw dropped...
    • SCSM T shirts are also usually sold at the pre-race expo, not just in SCSM but also other IAAF certified¬†marathons in other parts of the world. The actual finisher shirt handed to you at the finish line¬†is of course¬†different though. I have nothing against those who want to buy a souvenir¬†or presents for family and friends back home, but I strongly believe¬†finisher shirts should be earned. Medals are usually just made of cheap metal or plastic, but to a runner, that "token" represents all the blood sweat and tears¬†¬†you put into finishing the race. I don't remember where I read this, but there was this story about a guy whose wife completed her first marathon in Chicago. He told his friend: "I just bought her an expensive designer bag. That finisher certificate she¬†got from completing the marathon probably cost the organizers a few cents to print.¬†If she had to choose between the two¬†of which to keep though, I know it would be that finisher's certificate & medal on our wall!"¬†ūü•ī
    • I‚Äôm not a local, so I didn‚Äôt know the story about that pastry chef, but the link to the Straits Times article was an amusing read. It said he picked up running in 2011, and only runs 1 km at each time (!?!?!?) on weekends, yet he managed to cover ¬†19kms in an actual race before giving up. I suspect though he probably walked most of that. If he could cover that distance running without training though, he must be either gifted, or very fit from another sport or life activity. Imagine what he would actually be capable of if he just took the time to train properly!
    • Oh, don't know how they got hold of them. But during last year's OCBC Cycle, I saw¬†the organizer selling past years' shirts at¬†the race pack collection venue. I think this is good recycling practice as there should be excess and will be a pity just to scrap them. As well sell cheap to cyclists who may want to buy them.
