Counted among the top 10 GPS running watches, Timex Bodylink T5F011 running watch is the best companion a runner, sportsperson or athlete can have to monitor their heart rates while exercising. Among the heart rate monitor watches I have seen, the Timex watch offers a greater variety of options to customize the watch's features according to the individual needs of its users. This GPS watch is good for a number of sports, helping athletes and sportsmen to train with precise and detailed performance given by them during their workout sessions.
Through its GPS feature, the watch does not only record the heart rate but also gives a precise account of the speed with which the athlete worked out, the route taken and the distance traveled. The information can then be taken from the watch's memory and saved in the computer to maintain a performance graph over a specified period of time.
Apart from the features of the Timex Bodylink T5F011 that the company markets, the product features that I found appealing in the watch were:
Considering that the company is still new in the market compared to the market leader Garmin, I think Timex Bodylink T5F011 can prove to be a good watch if some of its downsides are taken care of.

Although the cons of Timex Bodylink T5F011 seem to be lesser in number than its pros, the final decision for me rested on the user reviews available on online selling websites. While the watch has been given an average rating of 3.3 out of 5 by the users, most users complain about the tough time their Timex Bodylink T5F011 in terms of service and maintenance.
