Easy to read screen.

I have the same problem with the tap technology -- my watch logs laps randomly even on my easy runs (with the tap force setting set on "High").

Most of the timex ironman watches I owned have lasted easily for five or more years but not this one.

I have been using Timex Ironman watches for more than 20 years. I love them and never wear anything else.

I bought this one for two reasons:

1.) The display is big and easier to read during workouts than some of my other watches;

2.) I like new gadgets.

I took the watch for my first swim workout and during a 2,000 yard swim, the stopwatch randomly recorded a split 87 times. Sometimes, it would record a split every 5-10 seconds, for no reason.

I attribute this to either the tap screen being defective or there is a small leak in the watch, which will eventually destroy the watch.

Otherwise, the watch is just about like every other Ironman watch, though I really do like the large display and the tap-screen function is kind of cool and allows for mindless split recording in the middle of a workout or a race.

I have contacted the seller for a replacement and will post an update when I get a new one.

***MARCH 13, 2010 UPDATE***

I received my second watch from the seller. It too has the same flaw. As I told them in an email - Timex has a fundamental design flaw with the Tap Screen: Even at the highest tap setting, when you swim, unless you place your arm gently in the water on each swim stroke, it records that stroke as a tap i.e. a lap. Obviously, this is useless to a triathlete.

I actually live about 15 miles from Timex headquarters. It is a great company, with great people. Timex supports local races that I compete in and I have nothing bad to say about it as a company. I just can't believe that it would release a watch for TRIATHLETES that does not work in the water. It took me exactly five minutes each with two separate watches to determine that the tap screen technology is flawed.

I bought the Ironman Sleek 150 with TapScreen technology mainly for the large watch face so that I can better see my times during workouts and races. I thought the tap technology would be cool too. However, I have now had the watch a little over a week and completed three swim works out with it on. During the workouts the watch, all on its own, recored several lap splits without me touching anything. I don't know if it is a flaw in the tap technology design or what, but if this happens during a triathlon it defeats the purpose of accuratly keeping track of your split times. I am also worried that the watch will at some point leak during a swim, due to this problem, and ruin the watch. I am very disappointed in this watch. I have always raced and trained with a Timex Ironman watch, and this is the only one I have had problems with. The fact that it cost $90 doesn't make me feel any better. The best thing about the watch is the large face and the sleek design, as well as the many functions, but the tap technology isn't working correctly for me. This is a brand new product and I should have waited and read reviews before I purchased it.

I have the same problem with the tap technology -- my watch logs laps randomly even on my easy runs (with the tap force setting set on "High"). This is possible to reproduce, try flipping the watch upside down (with the screen face down) and gently tap at it, it's logging a lap with almost no force tap at the "high force" setting.

This makes logging laps impossible, affecting target time pacer as well.

Don't do it! I read the reviews before making the decision to purchase this watch and I chose to take the chance on the watch. This chance has not turned out to be a good "gamble" on my part. I work out frequently and do fitness training, which includes my watch at every training session. During my workouts, I have had a problem with the watch stopping because the stop/reset button is sensitive and while my wrist is fully extended the button is pressed and stopped. I have had this problem happen many times, but only with this TIMEX watch and not any of my previous watches. The other problem has happened while mountain bike riding. Sometimes the rides can be bumpy enough that the tap feature is triggered and switches to the next lap. So far, I have been unhappy with my purchase. Although, the watch is beautiful. I love the way it looks and would love to simply turn off the tap feature. If that was made possible, then the watch would turnout to be much better...even though the tap feature was a selling point for me while swimming.

I really wanted to like this watch because on paper it looks like the perfect watch for a triathlete. Unfortunately the execution is poor.
Pros: I like the nutrition reminders and the ability to recall up to 150 splits, this really is a full featured watch.
Cons: The biggest flaw is the tap technology. I wanted to use this to record swim laps but it just doesn't work in the pool. If your hand is under water the watch doesn't record the tap because of the dampening effect of the water. So that means I have to lift both hands out of the pool on every lap. Hitting the lap button on my old Ironman watch was much easier. You can adjust the tap sensitivity but if I use it on anything less than 'hard' it records random laps, also not very useful. My other big issue is with the small ring that holds the excess arm band from sticking out. It simply doesn't work well, so the band is constantly popping out (10+ times a day) of the holder and sticking straight out, really annoying.
