This is a nice watch. Has all the features that I need. HOWEVER..... the color on the face definitely fades over time so you have a monochromatic grey rather than the light blue. ALSO the watch band falls apart long before the watch does. At present I have the watch band held together with electrical tape and staples. I am sure timex figures that most folks will just buy a new watch- but I am cheap and stubborn. I must admit that I have not contacted timex to inquire about a new watch band but off hand it does not appear to be easily replaced. If the watch band lasted as long as the watch I would be thrilled.

I bought this watch based on a previous review that said it comes with interval timers. It doesn't. It does have a timer that you can set so it repeats once it reaches zero. I wanted a watch that you can set to time run/walk intervals - on those you set interval 1 and interval 2 and you can set it so it repeats the intervals until you stop it.

This watch does have the chrono feature (but I think pretty much all sports watch have that), the timer, 3 alarms and something called "occasion." Looks nice, as pictured.

If you're a runner and you're just interested in your split times, this will work. If you do the run/walk thing, or you want to do timed sprints with a timed recovery in between w/o constantly checking your watch, this isn't the watch you want.

This is the only watch I've found so far that does intervals: Timex Women's T5K007 Ironman Sleek 50-Lap Resin Strap Watch

I bought this watch to help me train for my first half-marathon. Has all the standard features we're used to with digital watches, time, date, chrono w/split times, etc. You can also program occasions like birthdays, meetings, and anniversaries so you don't forget to stop and buy flowers during your run. The feature I use the most on this watch is the countdown timer. BEWARE!! I'm about 5'10" and 160lbs and have small wrists which prompted me to go for the unisex model; however, the watch case is more a ladies or teen size. I only wear it for running so it doesn't bother me too much, but my buddies would have a good time of it if I wore this out to the bar.

Just what I was looking for, simple yet functional. Band has a little lip that helps prevent strap from coming undone which makes in impossible to lose. Comfortable. Would recommend to anyone. It has helped me with my training a lot.

Timex Unisex T5K018 Ironman 30-Lap Resin Strap Watch (Mid-Size) is perfect for athletes at any level. It is stylish and very easy to use. The main features of this watch are the 30-lap memory, 100-hour chronograph with lap and split options, on-the-fly lap recall, and water resistance down to 100m. This is very useful for running, biking and swimming. For marathon runner, you can track your pace each mile (since it has 30 memory vs 26.2 miles total distance of marathon race). It also have countdown timer, 3 alarms, and 3 different time zone settings.

The only two downside to this watch:
1. If your wrist is relatively larger, you might want to get the full size watch (vs this mid-size/unisex watch)
2. The strap on this watch can be made stronger or thicker (if not careful when taking the watch off and yanked the strap, it will break)

Have a great race!

When I bought this watch, it was labeled as "unisex". It's a women's watch, marginally "unisex".

The Ironman "sleek" watches were the only ones with a countdown interval timer, which is important for swimming. But, the watch does not stand up to the pool. Maybe it's the sun and the seat, but I think it's the chlorine. For the third watch in a row, the band failed. And, the problem with the "sleek" watches is that you can't replace the band.

This is a little too expensive for a disposable watch, in my opinion.

I used this watch during swimming, and after a few months it started to fail. First the light went off, then the whole display was off. I had it for two years before I used it for swim training, and worked great for running laps.

I use this watch for everything. It's my alarm clock. I use it to time my workouts and my meditations. I use it as a timer when I'm cooking. It's not elegant and it's not fancy, but it works for me. 365 days a year. When I lost it the other day, I was panicked and then I found it on Amazon, ordered it Prime and had my watch back in two days. Whew!

Love it. I always buy the Timex watch, this is my third in 20 years, and it's one of the best. Fits well and user friendly. I like that the numbers and date are bigger than the last version too

I bought this watch for my girlfriend and it was a great watch for the first couple months. Then all of a sudden it would reset itself and make random beeping noises. If you don't care about what time it is, either don't buy a watch or buy this one
