  • Summary: 1) it was very large and heavy. 2) Most important we could not get it to lock onto a satellite to work. the clock worked fine, but the other features did not. 3) It was difficult to find the instructions on how to charge it, and other important info on working it. (Thank goodness we thought to look up the info on the internet. All in All we were Very disappointed in in the product. and returned it.

Failed after 7 weeks, wasn't great when it did work

Amazon Customer, Amazon
14 January 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this watch 7 weeks ago and have used it 5-6 times/week ever since. The features were perfect for what I wanted it for and I only had two nitpicky complaints. 1) The GPS takes seemingly forever to find enough satellites; and 2) You have to have a computer of some sort to offload data. No phones, no tablets, nothing bluetooth, etc. Today, however, the unit has stopped working.

GPS is terrible

Daniel Galloway, Amazon
7 January 2014
  • Summary: Don't bother buying this watch. You can hardly ever get the GPS to pick up a signal. When you finally do, it goes in and out, therefore not keeping your accurate distance.

Nice watch - a shame the GPS is unreliable

Cees de Regt, Amazon
26 December 2012
  • Summary: On paper this is a strong GPS watch, in particular compared to the more pricy Garmin products. However, the watch has a fatal flaw: the GPS is faulty. I used the watch five or six times before I returned it. The first time it took a couple of minutes to find the satellites, as indicated in the instructions. However the second time (at the same physical location) it should have locked within a minute or so.

Wish I saved the Money and Bought Something Else

Psquared, amazon.com
5 February 2012
  • Summary: Really disappointed in this watch. Shame on Timex. I gave it a year to adjust to, but still very frustrated. Reasons: - Long time to acquire GPS - Although you can change the watch screen to show different data points such as ascent total when using it, only certain basic info such as pace and distance transfers to the database. - The Training Peaks database really needs improvement on many levels. It costs money to allow you to record anything of significance on it.

timex 150 lap -tap

Susan Owen Jones "Susan-Indian supporter", amazon.com
18 January 2012
  • Summary: The above watch is terrible. Needs a battery every 6 months or less. Also the watch strap broke after only 6 months . Timex watches don't last and there are better values in the market.
