Summary: Both of my kids have this watch. It is definitely durable - they are kids after all. They keep them on when swimming. I think they are complicated to program, but my kids have no problem using the stop watch and other features. The color lasts. One of my kids previously had the green one: Timex Women's T5K081 1440 Sports Digital Resin Strap Watch, and the only reason we eventually bought her a blue one was because the green one stained very quickly.
Summary: For the price you cannot beat this watch! I was looking for a digital watch that was water resistant and could be worn while swimming to time laps and is easily read with goggles on. Plus its size and weight did not impede speed. Successful on all accounts. Not only does this watch take a licking it takes a dipping without issue! Very satisfied!
Summary: The time on this watch cannot be set! The alarm function fools you into thinking you have set the actual time. It is not so attractive to wear as a bracelet, so it's going to a neighbor child who cannot tell time as a toy. Sad. I checked internet revies on this and I am not alone. It is a largely nonfunctional watch.Timex outsourced. Made in China.
Summary: This watch did not last me very long. Its purpose was solely to serve me during my runs. However, the plastic part holding the wristband broke off after 2 weeks already when I took the watch off. If it hadn't been for that, this watch would have perfectly fulfilled its purpose.
Summary: I bought this watch more than two years ago, and it is still working well. The set up I can remember was a little tricky, and with daylight savings, it is quite difficult to remember how to set it up but there are plenty of guides on the internet if you search for your model of the watch. For two years this watch has worked very well and although I will hopefully get a new one as I am not keen on the look of this watch, it has lasted very well.
Summary: I ordered this for my son's 14th birthday. He wanted a coloured watch strap with a digital/stopwatch face. It fitted him nicely and did not overpower his wrist like some adult watches had and although it was a bit fiddly setting it up- overall he was pleased with it.
Summary: I bought this watch for its price, but have been very happy with it. The set up is easy, although instructions could be clearer. The light is great and the strap very comfortable and highly suitable for a narrow wrist. I love the easy to read and uncluttered display. A great buy!
