TIMEX Factory Team (TFT) Application

Designed to provide multisport athletes the opportunity to connect with TIMEX in a way that was not previously available, the new TIMEX Factory Team (TFT) was designed to be a complementary program to the already successful TIMEX Multisport Team. Launched in an effort to support the large number of outstanding athletes that exist in the multisport community, the team will give more athletes the opportunity to represent the TIMEX brand in addition to growing the community of TIMEX athletes who are dedicated to achieving their racing and training goals.

The Team application is available online and will be throughout the year. Athletes will be selected based upon their athletic achievements and their community involvement. Applicants of all disciplines are welcome to apply. Those selected will receive products from TIMEX and will be given exclusive rights to wear the TFT uniform developed by Champion System.

Selected athlete will receive the following: Timex Ironman digital sports watch plus discount for additional product purchases, a Timex Factory Team Uniform - Exclusive to team members ($80 voucher to order online), and a Timex technical running hat and visor. Obligations of Timex Factory Team athletes: Team dues of $100, athletes must wear Timex sports time piece during all racing and training, will upload photos from races and training to social media outlets on a weekly basis, and submit race results within a week after race date.

  1. Not crazy about the $100 fee--seems to be a win for Timex, but not sure about for the athlete!

    1. I think it's pretty fair, depends on the watch I guess, but also how much exposure you get from participating.

    2. I think it is quite obviously a marketing strategy by Timex. That being said, If you need a watch/ some gear, then why not? It makes you feel connected to a team, you get occasional discounts, and $100 isnt the most expensive thing you'll be doing in this great sport.

      Any word on what watch they get?
