I've had this watch for nine months and I really liked it, nice appearance and big screen with big numbers make it easy to use when running. Is not as easy to use as other similar watches, so I have been using it just as a watch and not for running. The straps are bad quality, mine is already broken and have only used it for few running and for work (office), the strap can't be replaced. It is a cheap watch and can't expect more for the price. I've had other sport watches (casio, polar, sunnto) and by far this has been the inferior in quality and durability. If I have to purchase another sport watch it will definitelly not be a TIMEX. I rather pay a littel more and buy a better watch with the same or more functions.

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.

This watch is "awesome" especially for the price but the durability and the functions of this watch are top notch. Timex has always had nice watches but this one is the best.

I purchased this watch end of September 2012. Never used it for anything else other than running and its packed in not even nine months later. At first i though i'd a battery problem. Changed it, then 3 days later it went blank. Brought it back to the same watch specialist thinking it was maybe a faulty battery. Not even three days later. Same result. Blanked out completely. Disappointed - Yes!

Not sure what my return policy is?

I really am enjoying my new Timex watch . It has LARGE NUMBERS (time) on the face which was important for me . It also tells me the day and date , all on the main screen . Some other brands of watches I've tried , I had to correct the actual time on the watch to the REAL TIME , sometimes every month , others , every other two or three months . This watch , NEVER needed to be adjusted ! It KEEPS ACCURATE TIME perfectly , constantly ! My only complaint (minor) , is the loop to keep the strap of the band on the wristband ... It often disconnects , but has never caused me concern of losing my watch . That is the only reason I didn't give this watch a 5 star rating .

I've had this watch about 18 months and its worked fine although it's functions are not very intuitive. I never had cause to wear it in the water although it's suppose to be water resistant to 100 meters. Today I took my Grandson to the pool and while immersed to less than 1 meter of water it apparently leaked and is now inoperable. Not much of an Ironman? Out of Warranty of course.

As a runner I really enjoy the feautures of this watch. Whenever I'm doing intervals all i have to do is just tap to get the splits. It has plenty of storage too. i reccomend this watch to other. It actually is bigger than what it looks here on the pic.

I'm very happy with my new Timex Watch T5K253. I have it on all the time even in the pool. The only problem I have had is the watch ban. Because it is made of some kind of plastic, it doesn't always stay down. It pops out of the holding ban from time to time. Other then that, I would give it a 5 star rating. I was able to set the time and date without looking at the instructions. It would be nice if the watch would update the time and date when I travel to the east coast or west coast.

I love EVERYTHING about the actual watch part....SUPURB! However, the watch band is small for a large wrist. Please consider NOT buying this watch if your wrist is large. Other than that it's tops!

I really like this watch,,, but it's been in the shop more than on my wrist. It's very easy to read, good functionality, good looks, but it just hasn't been reliable. I bought mine in August and it's been in the shop 3 times (once for a month) and is there yet again. One of the main problems is that it leaks. It has big buttons towards your hand and if you bend your hand backwards when the watch is in the water it's easy to accidently depress one of them and then the watch leaks. The other niggling problem is keeping the end of the strap locked down by the band retaining loop. It keeps popping out.
