Summary: I bought the watch 5 months ago to walk/run a half marathon at 1/1 intervals. Worked perfectly, easy to program, perfect size for women, confortable, good battery life, great price for what it offer and very practical. I love it.
Pros: stylish, Performance, comfortable, Battery life, easy to read, Value
Summary: display failure with condentasate 3 differeent(same style) replacements watches..finally got tired of taking them back to the store... moving on ..dont bother unless you live in a desert and dont plan on swiming or showering with this watch or running in the rain
Summary: I received this watch two years ago as a Christmas present. I loved the look and feel; also I liked the sleekness of the model. It has been great up until today. I am outside most of the time running, biking, climbing, hiking, and what not and the watch has never given me any problems at all. Today however, I swam this morning for an hour, and water leaked in between the screen and the display cover.
Pros: stylish, Performance, comfortable, Worn all the time, Battery life, easy to read, reliable
Summary: I have had my "Iron Man 30 lap Full" for years and I've been very happy with it but the band broke, and as I am very dependent upon my watch, I spent the day driving around town trying to find a replacement only to discover that no stores carried any such product. It was very frustrating, but because I was so happy with my Timex and because I was in so desperate need of a watch, I decided to buy another.
Summary: I decided to upgrade to this watch simply because I loved the way it looked. I'd had a fantastic Timex Ironman before this, but it was starting to look a bit tired after about five years of hard training and racing (still working perfectly though). Very impressed with the look and fit of this watch, but it wasn't long before I began to experience the same problems as most other reviewers.
Summary: Bought a cheaper Ironman Timex, but some of the display didn't work, took it back - full refund, assuring me that Timex was wonderful, most unusual etc, so bought this one. Indigo light DOESN'T WORK! Live in Australia and bought on-line, so not sure how to take this one back.....
Summary: This is my third timex watch. First one just like this, watch band keeper broke after 1.5 yrs. Second one, HR monitor, liked it, but hard to change battery, eventual battery failure after 2 years. Finally, this one. I don't expect much. I want to run with a watch that is easy to use and use it for work functions, like keeping time. I think it looks great and works well for what I expect of it. Haven't taken it underwater.
Summary: I brought this watch in Jan 2011, Love the fact it has the 3 alarms. I have own other Timex watches like this but I liked the print on the face. Within 6 mths water condensation started to form. The watch face was unable to read a month ago and I could not get the alarms turned off. Finally just threw it away. Watch band also turned colors. Went back to wearing my other models. i think that Timex has changed the way they made this watch and that is why all the problems.
