Style wise, the RaceTrainer certainly makes a statement. Predominately white with carbon trim and M-Dot logos, it’s not subtle.
The side of the wrist ergonomic design feels and looks a bit odd and we’re not 100% convinced of its benefits (purportedly to optimise viewing angle). The chest strap is mainly fabric and, although the central portion is a bit bulky, it’s really comfy.
Set-up is easy, despite the scarily thick instruction manual, and you can program in five training zones. Out running, the display is clear, syncing is blip free and its interval setting is a real plus. Recall on the unit is good, including time in zone and a 10-session memory.
Download the session using the wireless ANT+ Data XChanger (Timex are now working in collaboration with Training Peaks). All good and it’s waterproof, but almost £200 is a lot to pay for a monitor lacking GPS and multisport options.
