Non-phone device for tracking their runs or bikes
This watches target audience is those who don't want to spend a ton of cash, but still want a dedicated non-phone device for tracking their runs or bikes. Within that category, it's a great little watch. It keeps track of pace, distance and time easily.
Best in class GPS accuracy with fast satellite acquisition
The Timex Marathon GPS is a great introductory GPS running watch. It's affordable, extremely accurate and simple to use. For the price, the Marathon is the best watch currently on the market, lacking only the heart-rate monitor functions and advanced workout management settings of higher-end watches.
Much better than the Global Trainer, but would like to see some changes
I think Timex has come a long way in terms of GPS watches, and this would be a really good option in my opinion over some other GPS's. Each has their own positives and negatives, and I would say this is probably my second favorite GPS watch.
New menu system is much cleaner/easier to use
I wouldn't have any problems recommending this unit for the majority of runners out there. No, it doesn't have the advanced workout or course features of some of the $300+ units on the market, but it does have roughly the same functionality as those units in the ~$200 range (+/- $25-30US), which is the price range the unit is in ($225).
