Summary: My wife's old watch broke so I bought her this one to replace it. She loved the look and the bigger display but the Lap Tap is too sensitive. She has set the Tap setting to the strongest it will go but still stops randomly when she swims.
Summary: Worst quality ever! Zero stars. The wrist band (strap) wears out very soon (like in 9 or 10 months). The strap cracks for normal, regular use and breaks. Since the strap is "built-in" with the watch, you cannot replace it with some kind of after-market strap. You're screwed. Your watch cannot be worn. If you're lucky, you can still get it repaired or replaced through Timex warranty. But good luck getting information on the process from their web-site.
Summary: Right now, I begining use it in my personal runing program, and the performace its perfect for me, im not a profesional in runnig, i just enjoy it and this watch help me realize my time laps :D
Summary: Buyer beware, if you can actually even buy this any more. My first Ironman watch from Timex lasted well for nearly 20 years, but the buttons were getting hard to push!! I found an update, the 150 lap tap watch, that seemed on paper to have the specs to be a fine replacement. I have always been sceptical of watches that use proprietary bands but I assumed that the band on this new watch could at least be replaced. I was wrong.
Summary: Unfortunately, the only reason these watches fail is when something goes wrong with the band. In my case, the orange color of the band is fading or discoloring between the band tip and where it latches. Also, the piece that is supposed to keep that part of the band close to the rest of the band doesn't stay in place, making the watch look unstrapped.
Summary: Like most Timex watches, this watch is a great value with only a few flaws. For anyone that has a hard time seeing the time on a run this watch is perfect for you. It's large display allow for fast and accurate viewing of the time while on the move. Like the Timex Ironman 50 lap watch, the 3 alarms are loud and allow you to set each alarm for a specific day, the weekdays or the weekends.
Summary: Finally, I can see the day, time, & date without reading glasses. I use this one as an everyday watch, I got tired of squinting to tell time. The indiglo is nice too. As far as laps, diving underwater, all that stuff I don't use. I have a garmin forerunner for that, and it's too big for everyday use.
