The Ironman Triathlon is a sporting event that requires a great deal of skill, determination and strength. It includes three sports; swimming, biking, and running which you carry out one after the other. Timex is a watch brand that designs watches geared towards sporting requirements and to enhance and measure performance. The brand wanted to add a sporting edge to their simply styled watches and the first sports orientated Timex launched watch was the Timex Ironman Triathlon watch which catered for all sporting elements of the Triathlon.
When this watch was released, it was incredibly well received and the demand for sports watches with a simple aesthetic and affordable price tag was still very apparent. Today, Timex watches have varied prices which of course depend on the features, the E-Instruments watch for example is £135 where as it includes functions such as an altimeter, compass and weather station. On the other side of the price scale, the new Core Digital watch, which as the name suggests has the primary function of displaying the time is £18. Even this watch has an added stop watch feature however and Timex watches in general are renowned for their high quality and great functions which far exceed their price.
Timex watches are popular among many people aside from sports enthusiasts. The aesthetic of the watches are durable and smart and therefore they easily transcend from day to night and as cosmetic features are an increasingly important factor in the popularity of watches, they are very much on trend. Also, there are now Timex watches made exclusively for women and these often incorporate scaled down versions of the men’s styles such as the Field Small. Some of the ladies styles also come in more girly colours as well as neutral including pink and purple.
One of the most innovative features which is included in many Timex watches such as the gold plated Core Digital watch, is the use of the Indi glow backlight which at the press of the button, lights up the whole display making the watches visible at night or in low lighting. When this new technology was introduced to the Timex Ironman Triathlon watches in 1992 it was one of the main selling points of the watch and this design became one of the most popular watch across the world.
In today’s collection of Timex watches, the Ironman Triathlon watch has developed and with new versions include the Timex Shock Resistant which includes numerous functions and is designed to endure multiple sporting activities. These watches are ideal for expert athletes including Cricket star Brett Lee and serious trainers. For people who enjoy sports goods, triathlon watches are must-have collectibles.
Timex watches are still affordable and made to the highest quality. They retain that raw Timex quality but are now very much regarded as fashion forward and super stylish. With the added benefit of being versatile and versions which cater for both daywear and night wear, Timex is definitely one of the hot watch brands to look out for.
