When should I use which timer?

I'm working with a KE06Z and have a need to trigger a function every 2 seconds. After looking at the various timer modules on the KE06 mcus I started thinking about the purpose for all the the different types and what situation you would prefer to use one type over another. 
Here is a list of the timers that are listed in the reference guide:
Flex Timer
Periodic Interrupt Timer
Real Time Counter

Pulse Width Timer

Pulse width seems the most obvious but comparing the other 3 seems more difficult being that it seems like you can use any of the first 3 in similar situations. 

Hopefully someone can fill me in. 
Thank you.
