Although it is not designed specifically for sailing, the Ironman Watch with FLIX by Timex is a great overall sporting watch that has all the bells and whistles you'll need for life out on the race course and much more. The countdown timer is easy to set and adjust so if you miss the 5, you can easily reset to catch the 4. The Chrono function works great for PHRF racers when tracking how well (or in some rare cases, how poorly) your time compares to other boats crossing the line. For distance racers the five programmable alarms comes in handy when planning for your next watch. One unique feature is the FLIX system. Just a quick flick of your wrist and a sharp stop activates the night light for 5 seconds. It's a handy feature to have when using two hands to check the time is less than convenient.

Although it’s helped me many times on the race course one of my favorite sailing items isn’t actually sailing specific, it’s my Timex Ironman Watch. So, it doesn’t have sailing specific features such as sync which doesn’t put it in the “sailing watch category”, but it has enough for me and this watch doesn’t leave my wrist and here are a few reasons why that is so.
 
On the water, the most important feature is the timer function and with the Ironman one can adjust the timer function to count down from any time down to the second. Mine is always pre-set to start at 5 minutes. I set it this way so that if I’m too busy packing a sail or cleaning up the cockpit to catch the five minute I can start the timer in three quick button presses. If you miss it all together you can quickly also change the starting point to be 4 minutes and catch the next horn. Further, you can also quickly set it to another random time to sync with another person on your boat. That is if you’re not so inclined to start your clock early at say 6 or 10 minutes relative to boats starting before you.

If you’re a PHRF sailor the Chrono function is great for clocking your time on boats crossing the line and to gauge how well (or poorly) you sailed. Another feature distance racers will appreciate is the dual alarms. It makes it convenient that you can set your alarm(s) in advance for your upcoming watches. For night watches you’ll also find the Indiglo, night light, lock convenient in that you can turn it on and not have to worry about the backlight turning off while you’re paging through the displayed data.

Sure, it doesn’t have large type or sync features like say the Gill watch, but it also doesn’t do as much damage to the wallet. For the price of this bad boy you get a whole lot of watch that will serve you well both on and off the race course. In short, I’ve had this watch for nearly four years and despite hardly ever taking it off it is still going strong.
