    A transition watch is one that holds you off till the next big purchase. As I plan my jump on the smartwatch train, I decided to get something that will serve a specific purpose till then. I needed a digital watch and a stopwatch with at least 3 lap memories for my training. First thing my mind wandered to was the G-Shock Rangeman just because I’ve been dying to get one. The unexpected issue with the Rangeman is that it doesn’t come with lap memory that I need. The watch I chose to go with at the end is the Timex Ironman edition. The Timex Ironman is a simple sub $20 watch that packs a great deal of features and has long proved their durability among athletes. Here are some of the things to consider for your transition watch:

    1. Stick with what you need NOT want! This watch is all about fulfilling a specific role in the time frame prior to your big purchase. What is the dire purpose making you buy this watch, search for that keyword. In my case was “Split Time” and “Lap Memory”.
    2. This is a stop gap watch, treat it as such. Limit the amount of money you’re willing to spend before you pull back. If the cost gets too high then you’re better off waiting or expediting your purchase timeline. I go swimming, running and falling off my bike with this watch, it needed to cost less than a nice meal.
    3. Can it be repurposed? Just because it’s a cheap watch doesn’t mean it has to go to a landfill when we’re done. Find it a new home, stash it away in your gym bag for backup or even keep it on shoveling duty if it snows in your area.

    I like the idea for the post. Would be interested in tips/thoughts on the stopgap watch as it applies to higher end watch wants.
