No Problem

Rick D, Washington, reviews.timex.com
21 March 2014
  • Summary: Didn't even bother reading the instructions. Very intuitive. Rather than making a sound when the alarm goes off, it vibrates. Works fine. However, I wish the vibration were stronger. I cannot count on this watch waking me up. but I guess that's why God made cell phones :). Watch is very bulky - maybe next year they'll figure out how to fit all of this technology into a thinner package.

Wrong instructions but vibration works.

Kyle N, Illinois, reviews.timex.com
21 March 2014
  • Summary: I received the wrong instructions for my watch. If you go to the "Support" option and then go to "Vibration Alarm" product, you will get the correct instructions. However, even the correct instructions are confusing. You will not learn how to use the vibration feature under "Timer" or "Alarm" but rather under the "Time" feature (as in how to set it).

great watch, instructions lacking

Ken B, Illinois, reviews.timex.com

  • Summary: Here's how u turn on vibration & turn off hydra & occasion (stolen from internet): 1. Go to the main screen of the watch. (the one with the time...) 2. Press and hold "set" until it stops telling you to "HOLD-TO SET" it. 3. Press "mode" several times until you reach "ALRT" 4. Press stop/start to change ALRT setting from whatever it is, to "vibe" (for just vibrate) or "combo" (for both vibrate and audible).

  • Summary: The watch isngreat! The problem is that the manual does not tell you everything. I had to look up how to make it vibrate. Nothing says how to use the compass.

It does what you want!

Robert C, New Jersey, reviews.timex.com
21 March 2014
  • Summary: Everyone complains the instructions for this sucks and they are right. But the watch really does what you want. You can make all alarms ring, vibrate, or both. The setting is under the main settings menu (the one you use to set the time on the watch and to hide the screens you don't want to use).

Disappointed

Lucie Z, Florida, reviews.timex.com
21 March 2014
  • Summary: First of all, I must say I love Timex watches. They were my first watch when I was 5 and I've never had a different brand. This one, however, was a huge disappointment. 1. It stopped working after only three weeks. The display simply went blank so I have to send it back today to have it repaired. 2. The watch band absorbs a lot of water so it takes ages to dry. I used to shower with my watch on but I have to take this one off. 3. Why exactly is there a plastic compass?

I love this watch!

Kurt Jensen J, Oregon, reviews.timex.com
21 March 2014
  • Summary: Easy and intuitive to set. The Vibration Alarm is exactly what my degraded hearing needs and I can read the time and date without reading glasses! If it came in an ungraded style (metal case and bracelet) I'd probably buy another. To make it really perfect, add analog hands over the full face digital background. As is, though, it works very well. Turn off features you don't want. Move to the feature you do want, set it, and it goes right back to the watch mode.

I like this watch

Kurt Jensen J, Oregon, reviews.timex.com
21 March 2014
  • Summary: Since I can't hear the alarm on most watches with an alarm feature, and I have a hard time seeing anything other than the time without reading glasses, this watch seems perfect. The vibration alarm feature works great and is easy to access and set. The time, day and date are large and clear. With a countdown timer, an occasion reminder and three alarms , there are lots of opportunities to use the vibration feature.

Great features for a great value!

Charles L, California, reviews.timex.com
21 March 2014
  • Summary: Bought this watch for its large, easy to read digits and the vibration alarm. It did not disappoint. Loads of other features are also a welcome addition: 3 (not just 2!) time zones and an occasion/event alarm. Features you won't find at this price point in other brands. A couple of things though prevent me from giving it a full 5-star rating: the vibration alert is for alarms only and not the hourly signal.
