Long time reader but first time poster here. Since my ancient ironman triathlon recently met its end I've found myself in the market for a new watch to use primarily while training (running mostly). I'm looking at the riseman since it seems the most useful for many of the outdoor sports I sometimes do in addition to running (hiking, climbing, skiing, SCUBA, etc.) However, I haven't yet been able to figure out whether the Riseman has these two functions that I couldn't live without:
- Does the stopwatch have the ability to take split times and save multiple splits? It would be nice if I could not only read split times at different laps or mile markers but also save/recall say 10 or so different splits from a workout.
- Interval timer. I need a countdown timer that could be set to countdown and at zero sound an alarm and repeat the countdown. This would be used to time alternating stints of intense workout/running/biking and resting for HIITs sets (high intensity interval training)
Does anyone know if the riseman has good functionality in this regard? Are there any other watches by either Casio, Timex, or Suunto that I should be considering? Thanks in advance for the input.
