    Timex Cycletrainer 2.0

  • I have used Timex watches for 25 years. I purchased my first Ironman watch in 1987 and still use it today, so it is unfortunate that I have to write a negative review for this product. I purchased the Cycletrainer 2.0 thinking that it would help improve my riding, unfortunately it hasn’t. This product has some serious flaws that I would think Timex would have caught before putting this on the market. First, the instruction manual that comes with the product is woefully inadequate and poorly written. Downloading the full manual online helps, but it is best to watch the videos. Second, and this probably applies to either more experienced riders and/or those who really want to capture every detail of their rides for storage and analysis; a significant flaw exists in the Cycletrainer regarding accuracy. As an example, and this may apply to all GPS devices so take that into consideration, the information recorded by the unit can be rendered inaccurate by passing under trees or other types of similar obstructions. It is somewhat disconcerting to be riding along at say, 20mph, only to have the unit then read something like 5mph because one has gone under some trees. Such wild fluctuations can only serve to impact things like recorded average speed, power output etc. Again these factors may not mean much to some users, but they are significant if one is using the TrainingPeaks program and is striving for accurate data regarding their training. I would suggest riders not remove their simple fork mounted computer as at least those will provide accurate readings in all conditions. Lastly, this unit seems to have difficulty displaying the correct date and time. Even when connected to the computer, during every download of information I have to reset the date and time on the unit. As I began, I have used Timex products for a long time but I cannot endorse this one, I gave it a 1 star because zero wasn’t an option. Cycling is expensive enough without the added issue of spending money on things that essentially don’t work, this makes a great handlebar ornament, you’ll look like the pros on tv, and people will think you’re cool; but I think many riders would rather, if given the choice, spend their money on something that helps their riding rather then just dresses up their bike. I’ll be boxing up my Timex, considering this an expensive lesson learned and looking to purchase a Garmin.

    Hope for Trail/XC/AM MTB Bikers w/ GPS

  • GPS systems do have issues when on wooded trails. I started with Garmin and then tried the Timex, both proved to lack in proper distance/speed tracking. BUT, there is HOPE. I added the Timex Speed/Cadence Sensor that uses Ant+. This lets the Cycle Trainer track speed and distance just as a regular cycle computer would using the wheel magnet and sensor. You still get GPS tracking. You also get all the other cool feature that the Cycle Trainer offers. It is an extra expense, but if you like the computer head unit, like I do, then it's a great solution. Basically, all consumer GPS units are going to have trouble properly tracking on wooded trails, it's a simple fact. I would have given the Timex Cycle Trainer a 5 star rating had they included the speed sensor in the package w/o paying the extra $40 (on Amazon). As the unit came to me, it would have been going back to the store... but since I found this work around, I really like the way the unit tracks and performs... better than equivalent Garmin products.

    Timex Cycle Trainer 2.0

  • For some time now I had looked at the various GPS trainers available, and finally decided on the Timex Cycle Trainer, I also purchased the speed/cadence ant so that I would have accurate info - This unit takes the cake with all the info it supplies! The ability to customize the screens is awesome! I've had several Garmin users check it over!

    Timex Cycle Trainer 2.0

  • I have worked in a GPS company for 20 years. I know GPS struggles when the satellites are blocked, such as riding under trees. Because of that I added the ANT compatible wireless speed and cadence sensor. The speed and distance from the speed sensor are accurate. I also use the ANT compatible heart rate monitor. When I ride I could always tell when I am pushing it but now I can check to see if my heart rate is getting too high for too long. I am able to pace my self better and ride longer. I like the ability to plot my ride route and statistics and share with friends and family.

    Timex Cycle Trainer 2.0 AWESOME!

  • I compared this computer with the Garmins and when I was able to get it from an EBay seller (NEW). I setup mine via my PC, it was very simple and quick, I would expect that it would be a bit more cumbersome doing the setup thru the actual GPS computer's screens.

    I have used it on about 10 rides so far and absolutley no issues with the GPS signal. One of my mountain bike rides was thru a very heavy forest area and I never lost signal and one of my road bike rides had a lot of trees covering the trail and again no issues with the GPS Signal.

    I'v used the heart rate monitor strap and again easy setup and never any issues with the GPS computer getting good readings throughout the ride. It was also very comfortable, I hardly noticed I was wearing it.

    I love the auto pause feature, since I ride a lot on roads and have to stop for the traffic signals.

    Also, definately use the upload to the TrainingPeaks.com site its free and the mapping feature is very cool. Shows your speed, heart rate and elevation changes in coordination with a google map of the ride.

    Overall I would highly recommend this GPS Bike Computer. I see no reason why anyone would spend hundreds of $$$ more on a GARMIN.
