I really like this watch, I got it for working out and jogging. I think it has a nice pleasant look to it, unlike many digital watches, and it is very comfortable to wear. Watch is very lightweight and the band looks very handsome. Has everything you really need, two time zones, timer, stopwatch, daily alarm, indiglo. I use the stopwatch to time how long my tea brews, and the timer to keep myself from burning things in the oven. The alarm has no snooze, so I wouldn't rely on that to wake you up, but perhaps you could use the alarm as a reminder to do something. For 15 bucks, this watch is a great buy.

I needed an inexpensive watch that displayed large numbers as well as the date. This was IT!! I am at the age where I need reading glasses. I can read the time and date on this watch without reading glasses. Also, very comfortable band. I was using a metal band watch which sometimes pinched my skin and was a bit heavy. The size is right as well. I don't like really large watch dials. The best part - the price. A disposable watch which I can replace every 2 years for $15. I could never understand people shelling out money for a Rolex just to tell time. I suppose it's all about priorities.

Nice lightweight watch, indigo light works great, looks good for an inexpensive watch. Gone swimming and banged it around a little bit, and it is holding up fine after 2 years!

When I was a child, I remember John Cameron Swayze advertising Timex watches, ending with the line, "Takes a licking, keeps on ticking." I needed a watch that was digital. sitable for use outdoors, and able to be read at night. I chose the Timex because it had all of these features, plus showed day, date, could time events, had an alarm, and showed either 24 hour day or a.m./p.m. readings. I am totally pleasaed with the Timex. It is very easy to learn how to change the settings, enter the time, and is very easy to read. I needed a replacement for an older digital watch that I purchased on a cruise. The Timex surpassed all my expectations, and cost less that $20.00, which was the price back in 1976. A better product for a lower price.

[UPDATE insert on JUNE 30, 2012: Have worn the watch pretty much daily since buying it in September of 2010, and it is now failing--the digital read-out is fading, and, while I realize I could try a new battery to see if that solves it, the watch's face is so badly scratched at this point I'm just going to toss it and buy a new watch--especially since replacement battery prices aren't exactly inexpensive, either. So this update is to let you know I got almost two years' service out of the watch, FYI. Not bad for $15.00. As I mentioned in my previous review, though, I do wish they'd replace the watch face with a more scratch-resistant material, and put in a longer-life battery. I'd gladly pay a few bucks more--even ten bucks more--if I knew the watch was going to last longer, as I love the watch itself just fine.] [UPDATE insert on January 22, 2011: Still my everyday watch, but the crystal is badly scratched at this point, only 4 months after purchase--still readable and useable, but just doesn't look all that great. Otherwise the watch is working fine, and I do use it every day. I'd still rate it 4 stars, especially at this price, but I do wish they'd upgrade the crystal to a harder, more scratch-resistant material, and I'd be happy to pay a few bucks more for same. Original review follows this] After researching watches on Amazon, I settled on this for my everyday watch--first time I'd bought a watch by mail, because I usually figure it's best to see it in person for size of dial, clarity of numbers, thickness on wrist, etc. Amazon's way of detailing it and giving the watch's dimensions with a visible grid helped tip me toward feeling OK with buying sight unseen. Turns out on opening the box I felt like I had already seen it in person (just from Amazon's page pictures and details), so that was a pleasant surprise. I've had it about a month now, and overall, love it. VERY clear read-out of date, hours, minutes and seconds, and the stopwatch (my most-often used function other than time and date) very easy to use and read in quick glances during a workout or walk. Unfortunately it is losing a few seconds a month, so I've had to re-set the time already (I need perfect time for my job), and the crystal and surrounding silver (plastic?) ornamentation has already been dinged up a bit--scratches on the crystal and small gouges and scratches on the silver ornamentation surrounding the crystal (and I would say my usage is normal overall, that I'm not normally in situations that would mean more damage than usual for a watch). It still looks great, though, especially from a distance, and the watchband is one of the best I've ever had--easy to put on with one hand and tighten, plus the loop that ties down the strap has a nice notch that meshes with the strap itself--nice look, and function. Overall, very happy with this bargain--at $15.00 total worth every penny.

I purchased this watch to replace my old Timex 1440 Sports Digital. It is a great watch if you spend a lot of time in the pool or at the beach. Setting the watch can be tricky, so best to save the instructions. Would purchase this watch again if anything happened to my current one.

This watch is a decent, simple watch for telling you the time of day and timing your training runs. The numerals are easy to read. Good value for the price.

I bought this for my athletic, too-cool-for-school 12 year old brother... one of the gifts that he actually liked! He uses the "timer" function to time everything, from TV commercials to his running times, and enjoys the various functions, and is always telling us what time it is. Great for the price, and fits anyone from my scrawny brother to my dad. Awesome buy!

This is a great watch. It does everything the description says it does. It looks and feels well made. It's a decent size, fairly large, but not huge. I've had it in the pool several times and have had zero problems.

I bought this watch primarily to use as a nurse, but I have also found it useful for my workouts. I love the display and how easy it is to use. I got the watch within 1 week even though it stated it would take 6-8 weeks, and I havent taken it off since. It was easy to program the times and even set the alarm. The display is probably my favorite feature of the watch. However, I was not looking for any complex features, and this was perfect for me. I love it. Like I said I also wear it for exercise purposes and it has withstood the test of the elements. Rain, wind, whatever I am running it - it holds up. I love this watch.
