Congratulations!
The Ironman® Triathlon® Digital Heart Rate Monitor is like hiring a personal
trainer. This high-tech tool is designed for demanding athletes like you to
measure how you track against your workout goals and offers you the
ability to track, store, and analyze key indicators of your personal fitness
level for up to 50 laps.
You will find your Heart Rate Monitor is a user-friendly fitness tool. But,
like any new device, you should take the time to familiarize yourself with
its components to optimize its usefulness.
So, check out the features and functions of your Heart Rate Monitor to
develop a basic understanding of this fitness tool. But most of all, enjoy
your new partner on the road to increased fitness!
Features
The Ironman® Triathlon® Digital Heart Rate Monitor features a 10-workout
memory that gathers elapsed time and heart rate data when you run its
chronograph or interval timer. What makes this interval timer unique is
that each of the linked segments can be set for both heart rate zone and
duration, so your workout can incorporate time-and-effort training
guidance - just like having a coach on your wrist.
1
In addition to standard heart rate monitor features, your Ironman®
Triathlon® Digital Heart Rate Monitor allows you to lock one or more of
your workouts to reduce accidental deletion.
The watch also has an optional two-way wireless communication link
called the Timex Data Xchanger. With two-way communication, you can
upload data from the watch to a computer or download settings from a
computer to the watch. The radio provides seamless digital wireless
communication, reliable connections, and data transmissions between the
watch and applicable ANT+™ devices.
A Fit Heart
WARNING:
This is not a medical device and is not recommended for use by
persons with serious heart conditions. Consult your physician
before beginning any exercise program.
Interference with the radio signal, poor contact between your skin and the Digital
Heart Rate Sensor, or other factors may prevent accurate transmission of heart rate
data.
Watch Buttons
START/SPLIT
Recent fitness findings indicate that anyone can get fit and stay fit without
being overzealous. It can be as simple as:
 Exercising 3 to 4 times per week.
 Exercising for 30 to 45 minutes during each exercise session.
 Exercising at the appropriate heart rate.
Heart rate represents the effects of exercise on all parts of the body.
Selecting the appropriate heart rate zone conditions the heart, lungs, and
muscles to perform at optimal levels to get and keep your body in shape.
Your Heart Rate Monitor can show you when you are in the exercise zone
you choose and signal you when you are not. It can help keep your body
exercising at an intensity level that can help you achieve your desired
fitness objectives without over- or under-exercising.

There are five basic heart rate target zones described in the table above.
Simply select a zone that matches your percent of maximum (%) heart rate
based on the fitness goal you want to achieve during a particular exercise.
Before you can set your zone, you first need to determine your maximum
heart rate. You can use many methods to estimate your maximum heart
rate.
The booklet Heart Zones® Tools For Success included in your Heart Rate
Monitor packaging (U.S. customers only) provides excellent procedures
and Timex recommends you use one of these methodologies.
You might consider using the government recommended age-based method.
7
Begin with the number 220 and then subtract your age. For instance, a
35 year old would begin with 220 and subtract 35 (the person’s age),
which gives an estimated maximum heart rate of 185. Once you know
your maximum heart rate, you can enter it in HRM Setup Mode and the
watch will automatically setup your zones as described in the table on the
previous page.
Heart Rate Monitor Setup and Use
Chrono and Interval Timer Modes collect heart rate data and record
detailed statistics for a workout. The Heart Rate Monitor can store
information for up to 10 workouts.
NOTE: The watch will collect heart rate data without the Chrono or Interval
Timer running. This information will not be available in Review Mode, but
can be transferred from the watch to a computer (Timex® Data Xchanger
USB device is required). If you have the optional USB device, you can
upload workout data to a computer for storage and viewing. When the
watch can store less than five hours, or only three more sessions, of heart
rate data, the watch will display the MEMORY LOW message. When the
watch has reached its storage capacity limits, the display will read
MEMORY FULL.
When the watch is not used with a computer these messages will be
skipped. Unless you lock a workout, you will automatically over-write an
older workout when you have reached your 10-workout limit.
8
Prepare Your Heart Rate Monitor for First Use
Once you have determined your fitness goals and maximum heart rate,
Timex recommends you pair the watch with your Heart Rate Sensor, set
the time, and set other important data in HRM Setup Mode before using
your Heart Rate Monitor.
Note: For best results, Timex recommends that you wash your heart rate
sensor in warm soapy water to remove any manufacturing oils before
using for the first time.
 Pairing the Watch and Heart Rate Sensor: Timex recommends that
you pair the Heart Rate Sensor and watch to minimize the possibility of
picking up a signal from another person’s Heart Rate Sensor. To
accurately pair the watch with the Heart Rate Sensor, go immediately
to HRM Setup Mode prior to stopping at or using any other mode. For
more information on “Device Pairing” see the Table of Contents under
HRM setup.
 Setting the Time of Day: The Heart Rate Monitor uses the time set on
the watch to record data. To ensure you are recording data at the
correct time, set the watch for your local time in Time of Day Mode.
For more information on Time of Day Mode see its section in the Table
of Contents.
 Entering Your Personal Data: Before using your watch it is important
to enter your weight and maximum heart rate in HRM Setup Mode.
This will allow you to tailor your Heart Rate Monitor to your personal
9
parameters. For more information see the “Personal Data” section in
the Table of Contents under HRM setup.
Use Your Heart Rate Monitor
1. Thoroughly wet the Heart Rate sensor pads under
running tap water (2-3 seconds per pad). If
necessary, use a heart rate monitor electrode gel for
better contact.
2. Center the Sensor on your chest with the Timex®
logo facing up and out and fasten it firmly, just
below your sternum.
3. Press the MODE button until your desired mode appears. You can view
heart rate information in Time of Day, Chrono, Interval Timer, or Timer
Modes.
4. Press the HEART RATE button on your watch. The antenna icon will
appear on the display indicating the watch is searching for a signal
from the Heart Rate Sensor. When the watch begins receiving a signal,
a pulsing heart icon will appear on the display. In certain modes, the
watch will automatically search for a Heart Rate Sensor when you
enter the mode.
NOTE: The watch automatically records your heart rate and other
statistical data about your workout (available in Review Mode) when
you use Chrono and Interval Timer Modes.
10
5. Press the START/SPLIT button and begin your workout.
6. If the watch is set to alert you when you go above or below your

audible alert off. Otherwise it will continue beeping until you return to
your target zone. When you are turning the audible alert off, you will
see the message HOLD FOR ALERT OFF. Conversely, when turning the
audible alert on, you will see the message HOLD FOR ALERT ON.
7. When you have finished your workout, press the STOP/RESET/SET
button to stop recording data for the workout if you are using Chrono
or Interval Timer Modes.
8. Remove the Heart Rate Sensor from your chest and the watch will stop
recording further heart rate data in approximately one minute.
9. Press MODE until you see Review Mode. This Mode includes heart rate
and other statistical data about your workout.
Note: Thoroughly clean your Heart Rate Sensor to maintain its
performance. The FLEX TECH™ strap can be machine washed in cold
water with the transmitter removed. Hang it to dry away from direct heat
or sunlight. Dry the metal contacts on the transmitter and the strap to
prevent corrosion.
11
NO HRM DATA Message
If the watch is not receiving heart rate information, you may receive the
message NO HRM DATA on the watch display. Try the following:
 Shorten the distance between the watch and the Heart Rate Sensor.
 Adjust the position of the Heart Rate Sensor and elastic chest strap.

Interval Terminology
 Interval Training: You can use interval training to help you vary the
intensity level within one workout, ultimately helping you work out
longer and harder.
 Interval: Intervals relate your exercise to specific periods of time. For
instance, you can run for ten minutes, walk for two, run for twenty
minutes, and then walk for five – this would represent four training
intervals.
 Repetitions (Reps): The number of times you choose to perform an
interval group. In the example above, if you choose to run the interval
group three times, you will go through your series of ten, two, twenty,
and five minute timings three times in sequence. This would represent
3 reps.

Heart Rate Data When Using Interval Mode
 With the interval timer running along with the Heart Rate Sensor you
When you operate the watch in Interval Mode with the Heart Rate Sensor,
you will accumulate heart-related data in Review Mode, including:
can change the Interval Mode display by pressing HEART RATE. Choose
from:
1. Heart Rate over Interval Time (per interval);
2. Interval Time (per interval) over Heart Rate;
3. Heart Rate only; or
4. Interval Number/Repetition Number over Interval Time.
 If an interval is set to 00:00:00, the watch will automatically skip over
that interval. For example if INT 3 is set to 00:00:00 then the watch
will move from INT 2 directly to INT 4.
 When you set target heart rate zones in Interval Mode, they override
those set in HRM Setup Mode. For example, if you have set the watch
to ZONE 2 in HRM Setup Mode but set INT 3 to ZONE 3, the watch will
record heart rate data for ZONE 3 and not ZONE 2 while in Interval
Mode. This is particularly important if you set the watch to alert you if
you go above or below your target heart rate zone.
 The repeat setting applies to the entire group of settings; you cannot
have the Interval Timer repeat twice for INT 1 and only once for INT 2.
1. Amount of time your heart rate stays within your target heart rate zone
(shown as IN ZONE in Review Mode);
2. The average heart rate for the complete time the Heart Rate Sensor
was operating and the interval timer was running (shown as AVERAGE
in Review Mode);
3. The average heart rate for each recorded interval (shown with interval
times in Review Mode); and
4. Peak and minimum heart rates for the complete time the Heart Rate
Sensor was operating and the interval timer was running (shown as
PEAK and MINIMUM in Review Mode).
Interval Mode Notes & Tips
 When the watch accumulates information concerning time in target
heart rate zones, the information is an aggregate for the time in all
zones, not the time in zone for each individual interval.
 If all workouts are locked in Review Mode you will see the message
WORKOUTS LOCKED - UNLOCK IN REVIEW. In this instance, the watch
cannot save any data for a workout.

Timer
Interval Mode Example
For cross training purposes, you decide to add a one-hour spin session to your
workout routine. You decide to use Interval Mode to help you track both time and
heart rate for your workout. You set the following intervals for your workout:
Interval
Time
Heart Rate Zone
INT 1
00:05:00

INT 2
00:18:00
ZONE 3
INT 3
00:05:00
ZONE 5
INT 4
00:05:00
ZONE 1
You use INT 1 as a warmup. INT 2 and INT 3 represent the core of your workout
at an increasing heart rate goal, striving for 5 minutes of high intensity aerobic
workout. Finally, INT 4 is a cool down between repetitions and at the end of the
workout. In addition, you set the repetitions to 2, which allows you to repeat this
workout sequence twice for a strong one-hour interval workout routine.
30
Timer Mode allows you to set a fixed time from which the watch counts
down to zero (i.e., 10, 9, 8, ...). In addition you can set the watch to repeat,

Recovery
About Recovery Heart Rate
Heart rate recovery provides an indicator of fitness and training level. As
you become more fit, your heart rate should return more quickly to a lower
heart rate value at the end of your workout, indicating a higher level of
cardiovascular fitness.
Your recovery rate represents the change in your heart rate over a period of
time. You can set your Heart Rate Monitor to record the change in your heart
rate for a 30-second or a 1-, 2-, 5-, or 10-minute period, or the recovery
timer can be set to OFF.
A smaller recovery result might indicate a need to take a break from training due to
fatigue, illness, or other factors.

some suggestions for remedies:
HARDWARE ERROR: This message appears if there is an internal error
with the watch’s radio transceiver. Contact Timex Customer Service.
SYNC ERROR: This message indicates that a communication error was
encountered. This is usually caused by interference from a wireless
device such as a cordless phone, wireless keyboard or mouse, or
Bluetooth accessory.
LINK TO PC BUSY: This message will appear if the computer is already
in communication with another Timex® watch. If this message appears
regularly and you are certain that there are no other Timex watches
within 20 feet of your computer, contact Timex Customer Service.
NO PC FOUND: If the watch is unable to establish a link to your
computer within 30 seconds, it will display this message. Check to
make sure that the device agent software is running and that the
Timex Data Xchanger USB is plugged into a working USB port. You may
also try removing the Data Xchanger and plugging it in again before
retrying the sync process.

Care & Maintenance
Watch Battery Replacement
When the battery of the watch is running low, the display or INDIGLO®
night-light will dim. This watch uses a CR2032 lithium battery.
To avoid the possibility of permanently damaging the watch, TIMEX
STRONGLY RECOMMENDS TAKING YOUR HEART RATE MONITOR WATCH TO
A LOCAL RETAILER OR JEWELER TO HAVE THE BATTERY REPLACED.
If you do choose to change the battery, make
sure to install it with the “+” side facing up.
Note: For the Race Trainer™ Pro watch, the
battery compartment is located above the
START/SPLIT button, under the exposed screws
and the Ironman® M-Dot® logo. The stainless
steel caseback has tamper-resistant screws
because the area behind the display has no
customer serviceable parts.
55
INDIGLO® night-light
Transmitter Battery Life
Press the INDIGLO® button to activate the night-light. This
electroluminescent technology illuminates the watch display at night and
in low light conditions.
Battery life of the transmitter should exceed two years, based upon using
it an hour a day. Greater usage will shorten the battery life. Replace
transmitter battery when any of the following occur:
Water Resistance
 Your 100 Meter Water Resistant watch withstands water pressure to
140 p.s.i.a. (equals immersion to 328 feet below sea level).
• The watch no longer receives heart rate information from the chest
transmitter when properly worn on the chest.
• Error messages (COMM ERR, SIGNAL LOST) appear with increased
frequency on the display.
 The watch is only water-resistant as long as the lens, pushbuttons, and
case remain intact.
 Timex recommends rinsing your wrist monitor with fresh water after
exposure to salt water.
WARNING: TO MAINTAIN WATER-RESISTANCE, DO NOT PRESS ANY
BUTTONS UNDER WATER.
Heart Rate Sensor and Strap Maintenance
Rinse Heart Rate Sensor and strap in fresh water to avoid build up of
materials that can interfere with the measurement of your heart rate.
The FLEX TECH™ strap can be machine washed in cold water with the
transmitter removed. Hang it to dry away from direct heat or sunlight. Dry
the metal contacts on the transmitter and the strap to prevent corrosion.
56
Transmitter Battery Replacement
NOTE: You’ll need to have a device (such as a watch) capable of displaying
heart rate information to verify that the new battery has been inserted
correctly. Use a coin to open the battery compartment cover (back of
sensor).
• Insert new battery (CR2032 or equivalent) with “+” facing you.
• Push the reset button next to the battery by using a toothpick or
straightened paper clip.
• Reinstall battery cover.
• Perform quick test of the unit:
1. Move away from sources of electrical or radio interference.
2. Liberally moisten the Heart Rate Sensor pads and put the chest strap
around your chest, securely against your skin.
57
3. Activate the heart rate monitor function on the watch.
4. Within a few seconds, the heart symbol on the watch display should
begin flashing, indicating that the sensor is active. This confirms that
the battery was installed correctly. NOTE: A heart rate value does not
need to appear on the display during this test.
IF FLASHING HEART DOES NOT APPEAR ON WATCH:
• Press the reset switch in the battery compartment again and replace
the battery cover.
• Reinstall the battery, and repeat test procedure above.
Water Resistance
The Heart Rate Sensor withstands water pressure to 30M or 60 p.s.i.a.
WARNING: The Heart Rate Sensor will not display heart rate when
operated under water.
