Timex (not the Seller) provided excellent customer to resolve my situation

Summary: Update: Not sure what's up w/ the Seller, but my Timex watch was to come with a heart rate monitor and AC adaptor--it didn't. Timex (not the Seller) provided responsive customer service to address this issue; therefore, I modified my rating.
Summary: Overall this watch works great, there are some days the GPS has trouble finding a signal which can be frustrating when its a clear sunny day. I usually start the watch 5-10 mins prior to my run but when it takes 15-20 with several resets it can be frustrating.
Summary: I do like this watch. It is my first GPS watch and not bad at all. I have had it for a couple years now. It has held up well. It is nice having 4 screens at one time. The only thing I am not a big fan of is the size of the watch. It is a little on the big side.
Summary: I have a very bad experience on MotoActv, so I switched to a basic GPS watch, and found this one a lot better compare to 'touch screen & color display' on MotoActv. If you need just a simple GPS watch to track distance, pace, calorie, etc. this can be a good choice.
Summary: The watch is awesome. If you are doing triathlons, and need a multisport watch that is water resistant, this is the way to go. I gave it four stars because sometimes the watch takes a long time to lock the satelites.
it's bigger than it looks, batteries don't last long

Summary: If you have a small ladies' wrist like I do, you will find that this watch is way too big. I still use it but get a lot of smart alec remarks from my husband and friends when wearing it after a workout.
Summary: Customizable screens with different information, you can create different timers training tailored to the fences to make. The GPS works great, precise location relative to cardinal points, also speed and distance. Very versatile, good value for money purchase.
Summary: It is working very well, battery life very good and the gps is fine. The only bad point is the sofware (training peaks) to manage rhe data. It is working but not really very usefull, the garmin sw is much much better
Summary: I really like this watch. I mainly use it while running and biking (I have not tested it for swimming), and it is a great tool. My only cons is that it takes sometimes a while to acquire a GPS signal where I live, so it can be annoying sometimes. But other than that I really like it.
