Status caught up with Mitch Tighe, Brand Manager for Timex Watches Australia just back from a weekend at the Noosa Triathalon.
What is the relationship between Timex and the Noosa Triathalon?
Timex has a strong relationship with the Noosa Tri. Being a Multisport triathlon, we have supported their events for many years. The triathlon is such a high profile, well run event that we feel privileged be a part of it.
How can Timex help athletes or beginner Athletes in their preparation for an event like the Noosa Triathalon??
Timex has the perfect training tools for triathletes, from first timers through to advanced competitors. From our entry level Ironman sports watches right through to our flagship Run Trainer 2.0 GPS, our Timex range is equipped with options to give you the feedback you need to train smarter and thus reap the maximum benefits. Distance, pace, heart rate, lap splits – you can get it all with a Timex
What watch are you wearing right now??
I’ve been training with the Run Trainer 2.0 GPS, both for running and also in the gym. The most accurate and easiest GPS I’ve ever used – it’s very user intuitive.
Are you competing in it next year??
We’ll see – I think I’d have to work up to it! I’ve got a lot of respect for the athletes – I think I’d need to up my training!
