This has been my main running buddy for the last 10 years until recently (finally?) upgrading to a GPS & chest strap deal. But don’t worry, I’m not totally done with the Nike Triax.
For those that just need to keep time (stopwatch) and/or laps (LOTS of laps…like 100!), without the bells and whistles of a GPS or chest strap, then this is your watch.
Features I like:
- Many, many lap-counter (100 I do believe).
- Water resistant: often used to keep track of swimming time while cross-training.
- Long battery life: replaced the battery about once every year with incessant, daily use.
- Super durable: I’ve had it for 10 years and have loved it every year (It was so good to find this watch after going through a Timex Ironman about every year for the 4 years prior..).
- Very easy to use: It has a Clock/Date mode, a timer (countdown) mode, and a chrono (stopwatch/lap) mode. Easy peasy.
Although my particular model is no doubt out of production, the Triax lives on and no doubt is still the magnificent product that I have grown with.
