This is a comfortable, nice-looking, and functional watch. The strap is a little stiff when brand new but softens right up. I was a little worried about the brightness of the Indiglo and the accuracy of the compass from some of the reviews of some of Timex's other IQ and Expedition watches, but I can now confidently put those fears to rest. It lights up just fine, and the compass is right on. It's consistently within 3 degrees of my Cammenga, which is pretty remarkable for a wristwatch compass. It's also consistantly 3 degrees to the RIGHT of my Cammenga, so knowing that, I can simply subtract 3 degrees from my magnetic declination adjustment and it puts the measurement right on. (You can also program a magnetic declination offset into the compass itself, but it will cause the fourth hand to remain offset by that much even when the compass feature is inactive, so I prefer to just make the adjustment in my head) Make sure to calibrate it according to the manual, and when using it (and during calibration) it must remain perfectly flat and away from any metallic object or its accuracy will degrade rapidly. To be fair, no wristwatch compass should be relied upon for wilderness navigation. It lacks a sighting mechanism and the steel case and watch movements will always make it less accurate than a dedicated nav compass...but this is one hell of a backup...and it tells me when lunchtime is :D

EDIT: I uploaded some pictures of a technique I discovered for turning the watchband into a rudimentary sighting mechanism. It's still not the same as a dedicated compass, but it is shockingly accurate. I've found a few geocaches this way.

The light feature broke on this watch after about a two week's wear. I was not worried about it because I knew that Amazon had a great return policy for 30 days. However, when I tried to return the item, Amazon directed me to Mr. Watch (the 3rd party seller) and their return policy was 10 days and you could not have worn the item....... huh? I understand that it is my fault for not reading Amazons policy regarding returns for purchases from third party vendors, however Mr. Watch was NOT at all understanding. How can a watch be broken if its not worn? Does that mean that if you want to return any product purchased from Mr. Watch MUST not be put on your wrist and returned within the 10 days????!!!!
PLEASE DO NOT BUY ANYTHING FROM MR. WATCH - they have ZERO tolerance...

As much as I like this watch visually and for the compass it appears to have a flaw. The crown detached from the watch after only 7 months. I purchased the watch from Amazon because Timex in Australia did not have the model available and they were not prepared to import it for me. When I approached Timex about the fault they stated they would not cover the watch under warranty because I purchased it through Amazon. They also did not reply to my email asking why? Fortunately Amazon came to the party on this. Cant fault their service. In my opinion if Timex is not prepared to back their manufacture then I wont be purchasing another Timex watch..

The functions are right down to the millisecond, I've had a lot of compliments on the watch and it wears very comfortably. The compass works just fine as long as you stay out of the way of florescent lights for any extend length of time. Fairly easy to calibrate just takes a little patience and understanding. I believe that it will prove to be very durable in the future, of course I've had and still have a few timex watches and they're all excellent watches. It is true timex will take a lickin and keep on tickin no doubt. Yes, I would reccomend to a friend.

This watch and compass combo works, but the dial is cluttered and the date window is far too small for easy viewing. I wear glasses for distance and for reading and even with the reading glasses the date window is hard to read. It takes an extra couple of focused seconds to tell the time, a quick glance did not do it because of all the hands of which there are four............ but, the compass is analogue and works well, as does the watch.

The watch was delivered quickly and was as described. As a compass it is accurate enough to get by. It looks great and keeps good time. I liked this style of band over the plastic of the black band. I would recommend this watch.

Dear Sirs from Amazon,
As you know I bought two Timex Men’s T2N726.
It was nice on site, reason by what I ordered two watches, but when I got it delivered in Brasil by a friend, was a bit disappointing in face of the chrome-plated pointers and scoring.
On site the watch's pointers and the scoring seems to be full white and easy to read, but on real, it causes some discomfort due the shine of it.
Nevertheless, it is a beautiful watch.
What I like in buying from Amazon is it honesty,
If I could I would return one of the watches (the second was a gift to my brother), but send it from Brazil and get it back is a pain in the neck :) due to our customs...
