It uses less battery power than most other watch illumination systems, enabling your watch battery to last longer. The Night Mode feature allows you to illuminate the Indiglo night-light for 3 seconds with any button press, regardless of the mode or function.

- At last!
Totally excellent! I've tried several heart monitor watches before and took all but one of them back, either because the manual was gibberish or because they didn't pick up my heart rate. I had a pretty good Polar but the band was really too small and eventually broke from being stretched.
Picked up heart beat and GPS signal quickly. Heart immediately, GPS after a few minutes.
Comfortably long band, which none of the other watches I've tried had.
Manual is handy size and WRITTEN IN ENGLISH (sorry for shouting) not translated from Klingon by someone with only a one-week crash course in English. Easy to understand and follow. How often have you found a manual like that, ever?
Indiglo night light looks really cool but I can't read it. Don't think I'll ever use the watch at night anyway. The whole watch is attractive.
I can't tell you about some of the hard-core features like laps. I'm only going to use the watch for general fitness.
The GPS is fun to use but not make or break for me. It holds the signal well, even when going past tall trees.
A good bargin!
- very good product
very good product, I bought it mainly for the heart monitor but it has many other good functions that I've yet to use. ...more info
- GPS Unit
I really like the fuctions of the watch, easy to use and plenty of options. The one complaint I have is the GPS unit. It doesn't work half the time. I could be out on a country road and it goes out on me. Why, I have no idea. Also, when I place the arm strap through it, the backing of the unit came apart, so I had to go to the belt holder. I wear a fuel belt so it wasn't that big of deal, when it worked of course. I have bought Timex watches in the past and never had a problem with their products, but this one is junk....more info
- excellent watch
I've been very happy with the watch so far. GPS seems good and I am now able to run outside and be precise about my pace and distance....more info
- Great system & easy to use
I've been using this watch/sensor set up for the past 3 weeks and love it. It was easy to use right out of the box, and the more that I explore it's capabilities, the more I learn and enjoy using this system. Having the GPS to let me know how far I'm into my run is awesome, as I find it quite motivating to see the progress.
I've heard instances of people having trouble with the GPS around tall objects, but I have not had any instances of trouble with the GPS retaining a signal.
I would recommend this watch and sensor combination for sure....more info
- Overal Satisfied, Problems getting GPS signal inside AND outside
Overall this product rocks... waterproof, chrono, waypoints, compass, elevation, and the best feature in my opinion is the three line display with middle line in larger font and you can change which item displays larger.. i.e. i have heart rate large when working out with the heart rate monitor strapped on.... or my pace when i can get the gps to remain locked in. aboslutely no reception indoors on a treadmill (which we dont really need), but even outdoors i have much trouble trying to synch it and get it to remain synched for the duration of a workout. do not buy this if the determining product is the gps. everything else about this watch rocks!...more info
- Timex Ironman T5J985 Has Been Fantastic
This is my first HRM (let alone personal GPS system). After a few run throughs with the manual, I was quickly using the watch at the gym to track my HR Zones. With regards to heart monitoring, the watch is very easy to use and easy to read. I have had no issues.
One interesting note is that I have been using the watch during my weight-training portions of my workouts as well my cardio. It has been interesting to see which exercises have greater affect on my heart rate than others.
Also, I have recently been exploring the GPS aspect and after the initial linking of the GPS to the watch (which took about 2 minutes), there haven't been any issues. It appears very accurate, as I have mapped out various road runs with the car and come up with similar distances traveled on the Timex. I look forward to hitting some trails soon....more info

Great price, arrived quickly, works well. GPS sometimes a little slow to get a signal....more info
- Great training aid
This watch is awesome. I had a Garmin forerunner 305, and while that had some small perks over this one such as computer connectivity, it was HUGE, and it needed to be charged all the time. Also, the TIMEX is way easier to use and program.
This watch is fairly small (they have a smaller version but it is hard to read while running) and the battery life is great.
I especially like the dual timers, the fact that all functions can be synd with each other.
I run ultra marathons and am in the Army, and I have started to use this all the time.
The finish timer is great for races, and it helped me to push myself to keep a faster pace than I would have otherwise. ...more info
- If I Could Give It 6 Stars, I Would...
I've never owned a GPS or training watch before, and I'm training for my very first marathon, so I researched for months to learn about every model by every brand. After reading hundreds of reviews from every source available, I bought the Timex T5J985 Ironman Trail Runner. I can't say enough about this training system. It's not just a watch, it's a training SYSTEM. I've read that other brands have several concerns, i.e., GPS not locking up or dropping out and never recovering, re-charging systems terminally failing, inaccurate data, etc., and I've experienced NONE of these problems. I will however, tell you that while I was on a training run in the middle of tropical storm Fay (I live in Miami) the GPS did lose the signal once, but while I was still on the move, the GPS was locked back on in the time it took me to look down at the watch (because it had "beeped" at me) and all I had to do was hit the "DISPLAY" button to link back up. This all happened in a matter of seconds, literally, and I never lost any of the total run's data like some of the other users had claimed. I run under moderate tree cover as well, and have NEVER had a problem. Now on to the watch functions...
This watch is AS ADVERTISED, and then some. The chrono functions flawlessly with three lines of data in real time across an ample watch face. You can select which data you prefer to view by toggling the DISPLAY button. I like to see my HR, PACE, and DISTANCE. You can also choose from LAP TIME, SPLIT TIME, and SPEED as well as others. The VERTICAL mode gives you data pertaining to your altitude. Since Florida is at sea level, I don't have occasion to use this feature much, but I will tell you that the watch tracks it automatically through the GPS, and at the end of my training runs, I chuckle to see that I've ascended a little over 200 ft., and descended about the same...lol. The FINISH mode is absolutely awesome! It predicts your finish time if you input a certain distance! On my longer runs, I'll input 26.2 miles, and select the finish time prediction in place of my average pace on the main chrono screen. It keeps a running time based on my pace and distance, and even coaches me if I'm going slower or faster than my input finish time! It's like having a coach on your wrist. The NAVIGATE mode is great for orienteering. It gives you LAT and LONG and your degree points, again in a three-line display. The WAYPOINTS mode is phenomenal. You can set waypoints (10) with a "tracking" mode to navigate you back to a particular waypoint should you get lost! While tracking, the face changes to a real-time compass face, with the distance you are from your waypoint, and you can see your progress toward or away from your waypoint as you walk. The LAP DATA mode gives you detailed information about each one of your laps or splits including lap or split time, ongoing event time, speed, pace, HR, distance, and elevation increases and decreases. the SUMMARY mode gives you detailed overall information concerning your entire event including avg speed, max speed, avg pace, best pace, event total distance, odometer, total ascent, total descent, at/above 1,000 ft., avg HR, max HR, min HR, HR zone times, recovery HR, total event time, and GPS battery level. There is a dual TIMER mode, a 5-ALARM mode (with backup) and a CONFIGURE mode in which you can set your default values for every function.
This watch was easy to use out of the box, and I got started with it right away. The GPS has never taken more than a minute to lock on, and I turn it on as I'm stretching for my run, so that when I'm done stretching all I have to do is switch to CHRONO mode, hit the START button, and go. No waiting! I did not purchase the data transmitter since I don't need to see my data on a graph. I'm not an elite athlete, and I can tell what areas I need to work on simply by tracking the data in SUMMARY mode.
I swear by this watch, and would recommend it to ANYONE...from the professional to the amateur to the beginner. CUDOS, TIMEX for getting the job done yet again!
Enjoy your workouts!...more info
