Summary: This inexpensive watch has all of the features I need and which I saw on more expensive models. My only issue is the size and location of the days of the week; I find them difficult to see when I'm outside in the sunlight.
Good timex, but definitely too large for my 9 yr old son.

Summary: It's a reliable Timex, the only problem is that it really is way too large of a watch for my 9 year old son to wear. I'm confident he'll grow into it soon, but my husband may inherit it before that happens.
Summary: This watch has already racked up a bunch of informative reviews, so I'll just add this brief personal experience: I do a lot of working out, including jogging. I also mountainbike. I need a training watch to be rugged, simple, waterproof/sweatproof, have an alarm an a countdown timer. I also don't want to invest too much into a sports watch, as I tend to destroy them far before their natural service lives would otherwise be over with.
Summary: This watch is good value for the price. I'm 55, so I really appreciate the large font. I swim with it, run with it, shower with it, and use the stopwatch functions simultaneously. The only drawback is the easy-to-scratch glass face. It is really easy to scratch.
Summary: I recently purchased this watch for my 12yrs. old son. Since opening it on Christmas morning he has not parted with it. He loves the luminated feature as well as the bold numbers. I would recommend this for any one. Apart from the mentioned features the Resin strap is a plus as it is very durable. A total value for money.
Summary: I bought this to wear during sports activities, especially water sports. I haven't worn it in the water yet so can't comment on it's waterproof characteristics. Other than that, I like how large the numbers are and the features of the watch, especially the countdown alarm. At less than $13 this is a great buy.
