Looks great, but consider it "disposable"
on April 16, 2010
I am a long time Timex owner (no pun intended), and was eager to provide my 8 year old nephew with his first Timex, an Indiglo. I chose a cute kids model that Timex said was age appropriate and water resistant. It was way too big, it died after about 6 months. I figured it was just bad luck. I tried again, and bought him this model, which he loved, it fit him perfectly, and he took good care of it, wouldn't go near water with it, in spite of it's claim of being water resistant. It died after 3 months. I don't know what's happened to Timex quality, but clearly it's hard to make a cheap watch that actually works. Ironically, my Timex finally died after about 10 years, but that's at least better than 3 months. I love the idea of these watches, but if they break, they cost as much to send in to repair "under warranty" as they do to purchase, so consider them disposable. Or better yet, just don't buy these cheap ones. Hopefully the more expensive ones last longer.
