Solar is Awesome

Summary: I have been a Timex fan and user for over 50 years. However, I was dubious about the solar functionality of the Timex Men's T5J641 Ironman Solar Power Shock Resin Strap Watch. My fears were unfounded.
Summary: This was my third Timex watch. I bought it brand NEW and within three weeks it had water damaged. The screen was permanently foggy. I sent the watch off to be repaired by the Timex (TG Service Center). After waiting a couple of months, I finally received a NEW watch (old watch couldn't be fixed).
Summary: For a supposed sports watch, this watch had lousy durability. The indiglo button stopped working after about a year, and the watch itself ceased functioning altogether in 2 years. There are watches less expensive and not even marketed as "sports watches" with greater durability than this.
Summary: I had ordered this watch from a different seller and it was a bad experience for me and I canceled the order. When I reordered from Chelsea Watch it was a much better experience and the ship date quite a bit shorter which made me much happier and I would buy from Chelsea again.
Indiglo is weak, battery indicator annoying; otherwise, great!

Summary: I've had this watch for a few years now. I had gotten a G-Shock for Christmas (I got what I'd asked for) and was very disappointed that Casio's understanding of "lap time" was very different from the rest of the world's. So I returned the G-Shock and got this baby instead.
Summary: I've had this watch for nearly two years. I use this watch for running and exercising almost every day. Several times the inside of the crystal has fogged on cool, humid mornings, but this has not happened often. Otherwise, the watch has functioned flawlessly.
Timex isn't what it used to be, the product is flawed

Summary: I got my first IronMan over 20 years ago, both that and my next one lasted for about 12 years each. I was VERY happy with them, and was realy interested in getting the new Solar model so I wouldn't have to worry about battery changes anymore (I didn't reseal the last one correctly, otherwise it was...
Summary: I bought this watch a few months ago. I never submerged it in water I only wore it in the shower. It started to collect water inside the lense. I contacted Timex and they sent me another one with no problem. I got the a brand new one 3 weeks ago and the same thing.
Summary: I owned this watch for 18 months. It started to fog up on the inside several months ago, sometimes to the point of being unable to read the face. This past week the Indiglo and chime have both quit completely and the watch has begun to freeze up intermittently.
Summary: Great watch, a really nice purchase, easy to use, looks great, the light is a little low, but i guess i cant ask to much for a watch that uses solar battery. over all its a great product! and its one of the best purchased i have had here.
