Excerpt: Many sport watch use belt type but athletes like me who run 10K, half, and full marathon tend to swing their arms. This Velcro type gives you a good fit during hard training. One thing that should not happen when you do training is that you get distracted by improper fitness of watch. This is very annoying especially when you run long distance. If you think that you are athletes get this watch!!! You will not even notice if you are wearing it or not.
Summary: I swim 3 days a week and finally decided that it was time I used a watch in the pool. I recommend this watch. I bought it for three reasons: #1: I wanted a lap counter. I often swim 18 or 36 laps, and find that I sometimes forget how many laps I've done. This watch has an easy-to-use lap counter (split button) that is large and easy to press while swimming. The lap counter works very well.
Summary: I've had this watch for 4 years now, and I've loved it every day I've had it. It keeps great time; as a matter of fact, I ran the St. Jude 1/2 Marathon this past December, and it was within 1 second of the chip timing from the race. I would recommend this watch to anyone who is looking for dependable, affordable, reliable, multi-functional, endurable, nearly any kind of "ble" in a good way, watch.
Fulfill daily "time rationing" needs with this comfortable and smart looking watch

Summary: There are too many distractions to keep me focused. I use the alarm settings to "bring me back" to checking the grill, ebay end of auctions, metering my walks and many many other routines. Sorry to say I haven't used the Lap timer nor the 100M water resistant capabilities but nice to know the functions are there if ever needed. You won't be disappointed with this watch!
Summary: I recently received this watch as a gift. It is a replacement for the exact same model that I've been wearing for a few years now. The only update was that the backlight on the new one is green instead of blue. The old one is still going strong, but it was time to get a new shiny one to keep up appearances. These watches are durable. I do not usually remove it for much of anything and it keeps telling time. I like that there are multiple alarms.
Summary: I LOVE my watch!!! What more needs to be said. This watch has traveled with me all over the country and has always kept me on time. The 30 lap memory is perfect for my training workouts. Sadly the date LED went bad so I sent it back for repairs and you sent me a brand new one! Now, I LOVE my NEW watch!!!
Summary: I am a repeat buyer of Timex Triiathalon Series watches. The features are great. However, on this model, the "Start/Split" button, which controls cycling through the set time zones, is obtrusively large. This allows the time zone to be changed unintentionally and without the wearer's knowledge. As mine is set for EST and CST, the undesired changed has alreaady caused me to be late for an appointment.
Summary: I ordered a Timex Indiglo watch to replace the one that I had bought in 2004 for my elderly father - he's 97. The prior one stopped working and battery replacement would not get it going. I had the new one shipped directly to him. While the time function of the watch works, the Ingiglo feature did not! No matter what we tried we could not get the dial to light up when we depressed the appropriate button.
