This is a great watch with lots of necessary and useful functions that works perfectly well. I have two complaints about it. One is that the velcro band, which is very comfortable and easy to put on and adjust, starts stinking after you get the band wet (swimming, washing your hands, showering) especially if you are using this as a running watch (it is called the Ironman, it shouldn't stink when you run!) My second complaint is personal and may not apply to anyone else, but for me the back of the watch (the metal cover that sits against my skin) irritates my skin and i get a little red circle where it sits. When I take the watch off, that circle gets scaly and then dries out and eventually goes away. I have never had this problem with other Timex watches.
As a result of these two flaws, I don't wear this watch all the time, only when I'm running. I was hoping I could just wear it all the time, but now I'm in the market for a second watch that I can just wear to work.
