Nice watch

  • 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.

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+.

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!!

LCD Viewing Angle, weight, wrist band

Ohio, amazon.com

  • 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.

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.

Great watch, poor Compass

  • 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...

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

  • 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.
