Summary: Got this watch as a Xmas gift - Here are my pros for this item:_x000D__x000D_1. Watch is lightweight._x000D__x000D_2. Nice big digital numbers._x000D__x000D_3. Also has analog hands._x000D__x000D_4. Indiglo feature a big plus if you wear your watch to bed._x000D__x000D_5. Appreciate the watch band - not a velcro "deal"._x000D__x000D_6.
Summary: This is an attractive watch with all the features I was looking for. The display is large enough for easy viewing at a glance. The activation buttons are large enough for ease of operation, but not so soft as to be activated by mistake. The indigo night light is very good. Analog hands need to be brighter or luminescent. Markers for analog hands need to be larger or numbers.
Super Watch for those who love sweep hand & digitl

Summary: This is a GREAT watch. Been looking to replace my old ironman with the sweep hand and digital - couldn't find one until now. Love that you can turn off the digital and just see the sweep hands. Digital and light work great at nite. Only suggestions are to Have one in blue trim instead of orange (no biggie tho), put luminescence paint on sweep hands to see at nite, and take off the "ironman" label on watch face (distracts and hides sweep hands in that position) - put...
Summary: I am an architect and like the look of an analog. i can turn off the digital and the watch looks great at work. I also run and am a soccer official, so I just turn on the digital and I am set. The numbers are large and easy to read at a quick glance.
Summary: I might give this watch 4 stars if there were more digital analog watches in the world. This is literally the ONLY style of 30,000 some watches I looked at that I wanted. That said it is far from perfect. The bevel on the outside could have the numbers 1-12. There is no time that is 1-6. It is not a chrono, not keeping track of 60 minutes its keeping track of 12 hours, so should have the numbers. I have to stop and double or triple check sometimes when using the analog.
Summary: I've owned several of these watches over the years. They are perfect for my work in video production. Useful timer function; very accurate time keeper; easy to read in bad light; easy to set and keep track of multiple time zones. I've found the grey background face easier to read in bad light or when using the IndiGLO feature compared to the black faced version. The only short coming of the watch is not being able to replace the band.
Summary: Great watch for traveling U can keep three time zones entered. Hands are harder to see on this version. Earlier version with black face and white hands was easier to read. Nice and light with the resin case. Very easy to adjust time(s) . Previously owned Timex watches have always held up well expect the same with this one.Rugged, stylish, Performance, comfortable, Worn all the time, easy to read, Value, reliableAlways had good luck with Timex watches and travel clocks
Summary: Watch is fantastic! Takes a licking and keeps on ticking! Only changes that I would make, would be to find a different placing for the ironman logo on the watch face and to color the hour and minute hands YELLOW or luminesent for better visibility!.Battery life, comfortable, easy to read, Performance, reliable, Rugged, stylish, Value, Worn all the time, on /off digital functionSize & weightTimex is truly standing up to its old motto: It takes a licking and keeps on...
