For the Athletic Workaholic Dads

More and more people are getting into a fitness regime, be it daily workouts at the gym, mountain biking or good ol' fashion running. And for every fitness activity you take on, your goal is to get better at it everyday by beating your own record.

I've found the perfect partner to keep your dad (and you) in tip-top shape and form. Timex recently launched a new sports watch called the Timex Ironman Wireless Fitness Tracker that's geared for heavy-duty trainings. It consists of a 50-lap memory recall chronograph with lap, split, speed pace, distance and total stoppage time. It also comes with a training log that stores workouts by date, with best lap, average lap, distance per lap, pace per lap, total time and total calories (whew!). That's a lot to keep note of, and this little gadget (that's also a watch, by the way) can store all these data and can easily be accessed, too!

This wonder of gadget also comes with a digital transmitter that can be attached to the waist. This transmitter wirelessly sends information to the watch that displays the information such as calories, distance, steps and pace. Other bonuses include alarm, timer with countdown stop or repeat and an interval timer with five segments, automatic interval repetition counter and INDiGLO night-light with night-mode feature. No need to worry about battery replacements, as these two high-performance gadgets have batteries that are easily changed. It's also great for water sports fanatics, since it's water resistant up to 50 meters.

If your dad's into sports or interested in keeping/wanting to be fit, then he'll surely enjoy tinkering its programs and settings. This tiny lightweight timepiece is equipped to help you understand your body better and reach your goal as you beat your own record day by day. It's definitely an essential sports gadget to recruit to be your fitness training ally.

Available in black, blue and pink, Timex Ironman Wireless Fitness Tracker is the perfect training partner that records all your fitness activity every step of the way. This duo gadget is sleek, handy and light. You'll hardly feel it as you go about your daily fitness routine.

*Timex watches are distributed by Newtrends International Corp. and are available at all Timex stores and leading department stores.
