Summary: Nice watch but the strap is too stiff. the beeper isn't loud enough either. I referee soccer and lacrosse and this watch is nice looking but is uncomfortable to wear. All the functions work just fine but again the strap hurts. A softer band would make this watch a hot seller.
Summary: I am satisfied with the product except I was led to believe that it had a month, day, and year display, but it doesn't reflect that and the directions are not for the faint of heart.........I also do not and will never use the lap feature. It does keep good time, tho.
Summary: For me it's been a great watch for the price. I paid about $35. It's subdued, not too big, and sporty. The black case is protective. Other reviewers noted how the small digital display may be obscurred by the minute hand on the half hour. This can occur, but I've experienced no difficuly determining the date or timing my kids sports activites. In my opinion, it's a great deal!
Summary: I bought this watch because in the description it said the case was 46mm. I need a bigger watch for work, tough, easy to see at a glance, etc. Upon receiving it, it is a smaller watch, 42mm, the hands are hard to see, and the digital at the bottom gets blocked by the hands. The indiglo is even really bad, lights up green but difficult to see where the hands are (if you don't have 20/20 vision, as I don't any more) Anyways, I'm very disappointed.
Summary: Watch looks great and has very good functionality. The only real complaint is that when you try to set the time, the little knob will come out all the way along with a spring. This has happened on two watches. One I was able to put back in, the other I had to send to Timex. You have to be very careful when pulling that little thing out. But I still like the watch a lot.
Summary: I was looking for a lightweight 200 meter WR Ironman as a replacement for a bulky Casio G-Shock I used for swimming and bicycling. Ironman watches are the best watches for the money-not the most attractive, but reliable, and for some reason keep the most accurate time of any brand I own (I'm a watch freak and own about twenty watches;). I just received this model, so can't comment on the water resistance or long term accuracy, but I don't expect to be disappointed.
Summary: Although I have only had this watch for a few days, I like it a lot. A few of my favorite features: 1.The resin casing extends beyond the cover of the watch face by about 2 mm, enough to provide lots of protection against the face being scratched accidentally. 2. The hour and minute hands have luminescent pieces on them, so it is often possible to tell the time in the dark without needing to turn on the Indiglo feature. 3.
Summary: This watch is great. It is a medium size and wears nicely. I have had it for almost a week and love everything about it. It has the class that an analog watch would show yet everything that is convenient about a digital watch. I have used the countdown timer while cooking and used the alarm for several different occasions. When the alarm goes off it both flashes the indiglo and beeps. The indiglo, by the way, is a nice soft blue.
Summary: This watch is one of the best multi-functional quality sports watch. It is so good looking and functional. It has all the features of a sports watch plus the duo features of having an analog and a digital view in one screen. The digital view can be displayed in time, a different time zone, or date mode. It was kinda hard to figure out how to get the date mode onto the analog view from the instructional booklet.
Summary: Was looking for a watch that would provide alarms, alerts and was comfortable. This watch accomplishes this totally. My only complaint is that the alarms/alerts are a bit too quiet. Would definitely recommend this watch.
