Nice watch

the revJ "revJ", amazon.com

  • Summary: Calibrated Compass easily and so far seems to be quite accurate. Not sure why Timex uses different circuitry for timers/chronometer in the expedition series compared to the ironman series. Only downfall to this that I've noticed is no Countdown repeat option on this watch. Also annoying is there is no way to keep the compass active, you can only view it for a few seconds at a time.

Solid Watch Solid Price

  • Summary: This watch was everything a good watch should be, water resistant to a reasonable depth, which I have tested with several showers and a dip in the pool everthing still works like it did right out of the package. So for water hardiness A+. The watch has a velcro cloth strap that adjusts to the perfect band length every time, another nice thing about the cloth strap is that it runs under the watches metal back; which means no sweaty wrist whooo!!!

Not for the RETIRED guys who need reading glasses

  • Summary: Nice watch but the time digits are too small for a person who needs to wear reading glasses to discern. The green LCD background compounds the viewing - NO CONTRAST! Timex has larger LCD time digits that work for me. Also I am a Velcro wrist band advocate ... easy on and easy off for us older guys!! PS- I am 67 years old.

LCD Viewing Angle, weight, wrist band

Ohio, amazon.com
9 January 2011
  • Summary: I researched a watch with a compass, which was the main reason for buying this watch. The LCD is difficult to read when not viewing straight-on. Given the advances in screens, this was disappointing. The wrist band is exactly what I wanted, but be aware it doesn't adjust down small enough to fit snug on an 11 year old. You can wear it, but it will be loose.

Just what I was looking for

Buck Seibert., amazon.com
26 December 2010
  • Summary: I had this type of Timex digital compass watch previously and it's hard to believe but the original battery lasted 9 years before it quit. By that time the watch had seen better days because of scratches on the besel and so forth. This was my everyday watch and took a lot of abuse. So I wanted to replace it rather than just put in a new battery. If this one lasts as long as the last, I'll be very pleased.

  • Summary: The watch is great. Better than I expected but the only hitch is the compass is not working right but it could be user error...

  • Summary: Watch works well but light button sticks up beyond the face level and gets caught on clothing or surfaces when you stick your hand in.

not so great

S. Chan "picky picky", amazon.com
23 April 2010
  • Summary: After calibrating the compass twice, it still seems only vaguely accurate and continues to have consistency problems. Good thing we didn't plan on relying on the compass too much; however, it was the main feature that led me to purchase this watch, so I am disappointed it doesn't work that well.

Amusant

Frank, amazon.ca
29 March 2011
  • Summary: J'ai acheté cette Timex (Timex Men's Expedition watch #T49688)pour m'amuser et m'aider en voyage grâce à la boussole. Ce qui veut dire que j'ai d'autres montres pour différentes occasions. J'aime le bracelet en velcro. La montre semblait lourde, mais malgré sa taille imposante, son poids est fort agréable. J'ai moins apprécié de devoir calibrer la boussole et si j'ai bien compris, il faudra le refaire lorsque je voyage une grande distance.
