The Timex Run X20 is an attractive, slim, easy to use GPS sports watch. It does NOT have heart rate monitoring nor can it be upgraded to support it. Simply put, the X20 is a GPS speed and distance monitor and a very good one at that.

Timex Website says

For many of us, GPS technology has made running more enjoyable—freeing us from the treadmills and tracks, providing motivation when we need it and giving an undeniable sense of accomplishment when it’s all done. But it has also come with the cost of wearing a bulky device that leaves tan lines over half of our forearms. What if you could have all of the advantages of GPS, but with the same ergonomic, streamlined fit of the sports watch that you grew up with? The only thing more shocking than the comfort of the Timex® IRONMAN® Run x20 GPS watch is how fast you’ll go with it.
