I was wondering what the best watch for doing intervals is. With the weather getting really nice outside, I'd like to hop off of the treadmill/bike/rower and so some of my training outside.
I've heard good things about the Timex Ironman watches from other posts on this board. The main thing I'm looking for is the ability to set variable interval times (say, beep at 40s, after another 80s, after another 40s, etc., as per WSP). Do the Ironmans allow you to do that?
Also, if I'm looking for that functionality, what sort of terminology should I be looking for? For example, what exactly do the following things mean?
"100-hour chronograph with lap/split option"
"50-lap memory recall"
Also, anyone have alternate ideas besides using watches for this sort of thing?
