I've owned Timex watches for the past 20 years, using them mostly for running and training for races from 5K to the marathon. When my battery died on my last one I decided to try something new, especially since the battery didn't last particularly long on it (about 2 years, when it should go 4-5). I really like this watch. I've been using it for about a month now, and am impressed with its functionality.

Pros: (1) Excellent functionality -- I like how the modes are designed. (2) Power-save feature is very nice -- you can set the watch display to go off after 1, 2, 4, 6 or 12 hours. I set mine for an hour. To turn it back on, simply press any button. (3) Nice, large, visible numbers for splits while running. (4) Very stylish design. I was unsure about the colors and look when I ordered it, but I am sold now. (5) Warranty -- two full years! That's way better than Timex.

Cons: (1) The reset button is also the light function button. So, in order to reset the memory you must also trigger the light. Not a big deal, but it does eat battery power. In my mind, this is more than made up for by the power-save function. (2) I'm not sure and time will tell, but the band has a clip attachment to catch the extra amount of band not being used that seems like it could break. Perhaps it won't, but I wonder how it will hold up. (3) The light itself is not overly brilliant -- I do like the "indiglo" of Timex better. But, this is not a big deal.

Overall I recommend this product. For me, four-stars is about as much as a product can earn as I treat five-stars as meaning nearly zero cons -- very rare. Grab this one and be happy!

I just got my watch this morning and it is standard (i.e. fantastic) Nike quality. This watch is perfect for me because I'm quite active in sports. It keeps the time, date, has alarms, lights up green, has a big dial face for quick and easy glances to see exactly what you need to see, even has some sort of data saving function, and is super stylish!

My only gripe about this (and it's not even really about the watch itself) is that this model, WR0139, is a women's watch. What this means is that the band is slimmer and shorter than a men's watch. This watch happens to fit me but on the LAST NOTCH; so I'm going to keep it because then the only real gripe I have, then, is the band width, which I don't think anyone is really going to notice.

I'm a distance runner, artist, and new mom so I like having a good sports watch that is easy to read, aesthetic, and can take a pounding. After having a Timex Marathon die on me for the fourth time (fantastic watches, but they are very poorly made now), I decided it as time to try something different.

I wanted a watch that was durable, had a readable display and lap features. I was also looking for something that was somewhat aesthetic (I love casio's durability, but their watches are a pain to read and clunky-looking).

Based on reviews on several different sites (including here), I decided to try the Nike Triax Fury 100. For $35 (it retails $95), I figured it was worth a try. It's fantastic! It has many functions, fits very comfortably on my left wrist (but not on my right), and is everything I hoped for.

I only have two complaints - First, it looks a little large, but that's no surprise as I'm a petite woman (5'1") and most of the reviewers for this model are guys (even though one of them mentions it is a woman's model). It's more important that it fits very well and comfortably--which is great as most watch bands irritate my skinny little wrists (I'm tightened to the first hole, but I usually am on the first or second on women's watches). My other complaint is I wish mine came with a manual (I'm currently looking for one online). It has a lot of features, and I'd like to know how to use them all. :)

All that aside, though, I'm pretty pleased. Time will tell as to how well this watch will last compared to my 4 timexes, but I have a good feeling about it.

Edit: I have found some information and manuals for this watch:

This watch is great for keeping track of my running. It has many many features, and the screen is nice and big. The buttons are pretty easy to use and it doesn't get too sweaty. Overall great purchase.

Nike Triax Fury 100 Style Watch (Black/Red)

I have this watch in the Black Grey also! this color is my "sporty work out color" the other is more for around town.

Pros: Great color and look.
Pros: Band stays on for outdoor activities, it is a rubber material so it wont smell
Pros: Easy to view, the display is tilted
Pros: Quality

Cons: instructions are a little crazy, but I know how to set it now! also available online when you lose them.

Overall: Best price I have seen on this watch. I think Nike is dropping out of watches so this may be a closeout to snatch up.

I wasn't under the impression that this was a womens or possibly a kids size watch but it is. Its small. Fortunately, I have a relatively small wrist so I can wear it. It's on the second to last hole. I had a Nike Triax 100 watch for 8-9 years and put it through hell and it kept on ticking. It was designed well and the functions worked perfectly. That's why I bought this watch. Seemed to be the closest thing. It's not at all. The numbers/letters are not fluid. They are made up of pixels. My older Triax was more fluid. Strike 1. This Triax only has 2 alarms. When you have 5 you tend to use them. Strike 2. I don't get the "work out" feature at all on this thing. The instructions suck. Strike 3. It's an angle design. When you look at it while running it is suppose to be designed so that you don't have to turn your arm parallel to your body to read it however, they over did the angle. Try turning your arm perpendicular to your body with your elbow by your side. Its not natural while running. It's actually more difficult to read. Very Strange. Have to wonder if anyone actually tried it before production. Strike 4. Only one star left, I guess that's how I will rate it.

Great all-round workout watch - I use it to run, swim, and cycle. You will want to make sure you read the instruction manual carefully beforehand as there is a lot of available functionality that isn't all that easy to figure out by yourself. I would definitely recommend this watch, and at this low price, seems like a no-brainer!

PROS - Lightweight. Sleek. Loads of functions. Memory. Good battery life. Decent size viewable screen.

CONS -
Size: I'm 6'2" 200lbs and the strap is on the 2nd to last hole, so if you have large wrists, this could be a little snug for you.

Battery: It's close to impossible to change the battery yourself without damaging the watch and losing some functionality. But for around $8 a watchmaker will change it for you, so not a deal-killer.

Complexity - Fairly complex to figure out, especially if you're the average guy who hates reading instruction manuals!

Bottom line - don't hesitate to buy this watch, it does all it should and does it well!

This is a great watch for the price (I payed around $35). The large display is easy to read even while running and the buttons are arranged so that only one will be pressed at a time. There are more modes and features built into this watch than I will ever use, but they are quite handy. I love how it sits diagonally on my arm when worn.

My only complaint is the ease with which the sound can be turned on and off. You simply press a button once to turn it on, and again to turn it off. I don't like it when my watch beeps every hour, but I find myself needing to turn off the sound multiple times since I always seem to turn it on without noticing. I wish this was a press and hold feature, but alas, a minor complaint that I can easily live with.

The sleep feature of this watch is also really nice and extends the battery life many times over. However, I wish there was an increment shorter than an hour.

When I first got it, admittingly I didnot like its strap as much as my previous Nike watches as it's red/black but then and now I'm in love with it..The reason I took it in red was the price:) But now I'm glad I didnot pay extra for the color because the color is really nice and gives me energy during the sports and also goes well with my colorful training clothes..It's so comfortable that I never take it off during my sleep or shower..It has got 2 time zones with just a click to a button or you can view the 2 time zones simultaneously..It has Run, workout, data and alarm modes. It has really satisfied me and I like it so much that I want to wear it to work sometimes:))

Great watch, but a few problems:

(1) I am left handed, and I didn't think about the curve of the watch before I bought it. I now have to bend my right arm at an awkward angle if I really want to get a good view of the time.

(2) I am petite (5'3") and the size of the face looks like a man's watch on my arm. Rather big and bulky.

(3) The numbers aren't smooth, but look almost "perforated" --- the small spacing between the numbers makes it somewhat difficult to read and a small irritant.

It does fit well and the colors are great -- a very bright red with black.
