Good upgrade but missing 2 previous features
on December 9, 2011
Compared to my previous model, which I think was the most recent one before this one, the screen is bigger, and the beeps louder, which are big helps when swimming laps. Entering target time is easier because you can enter your target pace rather than final time. The tap screen is neat and on the lowest force setting takes about the same amount of force as pushing a button. It's more of a gimmick than an improvement. You can't select store work-outs to delete, but the oldest ones are automatically deleted as the memory fills up. You can lock work-outs to keep them from being deleted. This means you have a little less control over stored work-out, but it is not a big deal. The biggest problem with the watch is that the option to automatically start he chronometer after the timer stops is gone. I can't at all figure out why Timex would remove this feature because it's a great option to use for out-and-back runs based on time. I guess you can just manually start the chrono after the timer goes off, but it's annoying especially considering that the old watch was able to do this. Overall, I'm glad I upgraded, but I was very disappointed with the loss the automatic timer to chrono feature.
