Very easy to setup; very easy to use.

And while you are drying off, your heart rate is dropping, so you probably will never get an accurate reading, if you get any reading at all.

It works great for monitoring my heart rate during moderate exercise.

I purchased this watch mostly to monitor my heart rate while exercising and to time my workouts.

I first tried out the heart rate feature. Once the watch was strapped onto my left wrist, a brief (5 to 8 second) touch of the metal case with the index figure of my right hand repeatedly produced an accurate heart rate reading. The length of time that reading was displayed seemed about right. This feature works both in both "time of day" and "stopwatch" mode.

The other modes are: Countdown Timer, Activity, Alarm, and Second Time Zone. I haven't really tried those modes, so I can't report on how loud the alarm is in Alarm mode and if it would be a suitable backup for a travel alarm clock.

The stopwatch mode also works very well. It displays the elapsed time to the 1/100 of a second (at least up to one hour), which is more digits than I need. But the control of this feature is simple after a quick read of the enclosed manual.

The Indiglo(R) feature works better than in my other watches and thus was a pleasant surprise. This lights up just the digits rather than the whole display and so produces an easy-to-read image in the dark.

All in all, if your needs in a sports watch are fairly simple, you'll find this watch a very good value.

I bought this watch to replace a lesser model made by another company that stopped working. This is the second HRM watch I've owned that doesn't require the use of the chest strap. The lack of a chest strap makes this watch more practical for everyday use. It works great for monitoring my heart rate during moderate exercise. However, it is less effective during high intensity training. When you touch the stainless steel face, you are completing an electrical circuit generated by the electrophysiology of your heart. While your skin is designed to complete the circuit, moisture (water and sweat) work just as well. The watch has a built in feature to prevent itself from constantly checking your HR when you sweat profusely via intense exercise. The watch has a lock mode that requires you to reset this function in order to capture your HR. I found that while exercising vigorously (basketball, intense running, circuit training) I sweat enough that this watch will continuously try to measure my heart rate until the locking feature is activated. This is counter-productive to the activity feature which allows you to track calories burned during an exercise by periodically measuring your HR.

However, the solution I've found to this problem is simple. I will take the watch off, put it in my pocket or next to my water bottle, and when I want to record my heart rate I will place it on a dry area of my body and touch the stainless steel face. This works very well. Though it may be somewhat inconvenient, I find that it's very effective and only necessary during high intensity training.

I have not had any problems with the watch during moderate training (bicycling, walking, light jogging, etc.). As long as I'm not sweating profusely, the watch works very well while on my wrist.

I'm quite pleased with this strapless Timex model. Lightweight, very readable dial, good basic functionality. Heart rate monitor appears accurate and works well. I bought this Timex model to replace a MIO Breeze which I sent back. The Mio was awkward to use compared to the Timex and the readability of the MIO's dial was much more problematic than the Timex. The Timex is relatively inexpensive for all it does, looks fine, medium size that should fit most women and men. Being a man that likes large watches, I feel this one is not too small. Comes with an actual "manual" instead of a sheet of paper folded up into little squares. Unlike similar strapless heart monitor watches from other manufacturers that require using both index fingers on the other hand, this one only requires that you touch one index finger to the metal rim. Admittedly, I haven't had it long enough to comment on durability.

I found the quality of the watch, esp. the heart rate functionality, to be very mediocre. The watch does look and feel nice, and has a nice display with time and date on the front. As a regular watch, I like it. But as a heart monitor, it is weak. It frequently beeps and starts taking a heart rate at random during exercise which is annoying and distracting. And then sometimes it goes into a lock mode on its own during which you can't take the heart rate. To unlock it you are supposed to press a button for 3 seconds, but I found that often did not work. So the watch tests my heart rate when I don't want it to, and won't test it when I do want it to! Aggravating...

Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! What can I say. I bought a $20.00 watch from Hong Kong and the seller assured me that I would be able to use it in a swimming pool. 3 days after receiving it the heart rate measurement capability quit working and then within a week the watch stopped working all together because I took it swimming. I bought the Timex watch, double the price but still affordable and it does everything they advertise and then some and it "Keeps on Ticking" through swimming pools, hot tubs etc. In addition to the heart rate measuring capability the watch does a "wonderous" job of determining calories burned based on heart rate, your weight, sex, age and time in a particular activity. It seems to track fairly closely with calories burned on eliptical exercise equipment at the local club. I certainly would recommend the watch and oh yes the standard Timex night face display is a real plus for seeing in the dark - most of the watches I have had over the years that measure heart rate have a tiny light bulb that is supposed to light up the display but you really can't see the watch display adequitely. This watch is great - the reverse light up effect of the whole watch face makes it very easy to read - even without glasses!
