This watch has the perfect features for me. It has multiple alarms, and even some special occasion alarms for one time future alarms. I like the three alarms and the alarm features like weekday only or weekend only settings.

The bad news is that back light is basically useless except in total darkness. This watch does not utilize the highly effective Indiglo backlight. It uses a backlight process that lights only the numbers. The problem is that the lighting is far from bright enough to be used in anything but total darkness. In dusk or dawn conditions, initiating the backlight make the numerals totally invisible.

I only gave this 4 stars, since I have come to know when I can use the backlight, and am comfortable with that.

This is the second Timex "water proof" watch that is not. I just returned from backpacking and white water rafting. Water damaged the watch, which no longer works. Look elsewhere if you depend on a watch in the backcountry.

I have been using this exact watch for over 3 years now. The features that I find to be useful are the watch's easy to read large digits, the alarm with a nice loud "beep", the stopwatch that can be started and stopped easily, the indiglo light that illuminates the watch very well, and the alternate time zone reading for when I travel. The feature I do not use is the flix technology that is supposed to activate the indiglo with a snap of the wrist. This does not work well.

This is a very good watch for the price. I have had about three Timex Ironman watches over the course of my 30 years of life. I have never had to replace one due to breakage or a failure to work properly. I have to replace the battery (on my previous Ironmans) once every 5 years or so. I use the alarm every morning and the indiglo every night. The battery is still going strong. This watch is light weight. The watch has some cloudy marks on the face that appeared after I got home from vacation at the beach. They might have been caused by the ocean, sand or pool water. This does not make the watch any less readable.

I recommend this watch for someone who wants a timepiece that will last for 5-10 years and does not want to do much maintenance on the device.

I bought this watch because I need something to wear while swimming laps and walking the dogs. I also liked the black and royal blue color and the look of this watch. I also have a Baby-G watch, so I thought this would be the same size. It is a bit bigger and the strap is long. I am a smallish woman and have to wear it using the first hole on the strap. But I like the larger size -- easy to see the numbers when swimming.

Update 12/16/2014
After a couple months, the watch face started looking cloudy, as if there was dried condensation on the inside of the watch. It is still readable but it is noticeable and sort of annoying. Since I only wear this one for swimming (I have this same watch in two other colors)I just ignored it until now. I am sending it back to Timex for repair, although after reading their limited warranty, I'm not sure if this is a covered repair or not. I will NOT be wearing either of my other two for swimming.... Stay tuned!

I like this series of watches. I have worn them for the past several years. I have gotten used to how to change the time, set the alarm, etc. so I keep buying the same brand & series. Since I wear a watch every day, I find that I like to buy a new watch every year, not because they break but because I want a clean new watchband at least. This time I wanted a fun color--to get something different than the boring brown or black strap. I was dithering between the green or the blue but finally order this one. I love the color.

I love everything about this watch. The instructions are easy to follow and easy to remember. It truly is waterproof. It is easy to switch from one function to the next. I use it all of the time, for running, swimming, and even for waking up in the morning. Love the color too :) Great price for a great product, and quick shipping too.

The only reason I gave this a 4 star is because it is a little bigger then I would have really liked. But the color, fit and design are great. I would buy again if I needed to.

This watch is one of the best I have purchased. I needed a new watch because my old Timex's band broke. This watch has both 12 and 24 hour digital time. I particularly like how it has multiple alarms, and the stop watch is very handy for when I am biking to see my mile times and compare them. This watch is simple to set and use. I particularly like how it has the day of the week, date and time right on there when I look at it. The indiglo makes it very easy to read when it is dark too. Great watch and cheaper price than Target. I originally purchased this at Target in store and when I got home and checked it out on Amazon it was $8 cheaper!

Excellent quality and well worth the money. Size is larger in the sense that the band at the smallest adjustment is adult size. Bought it for our 8yo son's birthday and it was too big but he still loves it and is so happy with everything else that he hasn't complained yet:)

I already had a watch, and it was getting kinda beat up. So I found this one. Ever since I got it, I have had it on my wrist almost every single day. I absolutely love this watch. And also very easy to set up, if you use the directions, of course. I would really recommend this to anyone looking for a watch.
