I got this watch to replace a different one that I broke the band on.
About 6 month after I got it the band came undone from the right bottom corner.
next the top left corner. There is NO warranty on the band so I'm kind of stuck with it glued!!!!
Otherwise I LOVE it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Although the watch is by far the most attractive women's sports watch out there, I have owned two in the last two years. The straps broke around the face of the watch and would no longer hold in the watch face. (Granted, I wore them every day, often 24/7.) A similar thing happened to a friend of mine who owns the same watch.

I experienced moderate water damage with the last watch as well.

Do not buy this watch.

I bought this watch in Oct/Nov of this year, it is now May...so I've owned it for 6-8 months or so. I've never gone swimming with it, but I have worn it in the shower regularly. One day after a shower it got all misty inside and now the screen is dim and a week or so later theres still water in it despite the fact that I haven't worn it. I'm disapointed.

For the price, a great watch. I am just starting to run for exercise and needed a not-too-expensive watch that had an interval timer. This one works great. I set it to beep for 2 minutes of running and a minute of walking. It's cute too. I got the purple one and really like the color. I really recommend it. I am a little worried about the strap getting worn out after a while from putting in on and taking it off but it was only $30 so when it finally breaks it won't be too big of a deal...

I had an issue with this watch only a month or two after I got it. After showering (yes, showering - not swimming, or bathing, or anything where it would have been submerged in water) it got water under the lens. I sent it to Timex and they repaired it for their standard warranty shipping fee amount.

After that, it worked pretty well for a while. I've had it about two years now, and the other day, the Indiglo stopped working. I literally hit the button, saw a little fizzle, and now it doesn't work any more. The band is also starting to come loose around the watch face.

Overall, given all the difficulties I've had with this watch, I'm not satisfied with it. My last Timex worked perfectly from the day I got it until several years later, when the band started ripping. At that point, I duct-taped it and kept wearing it until my mother begged me to let her buy me a new one to replace it because she was embarrassed I was still wearing it.

I'm going to go with a different brand next time. I don't consider a $40 watch disposable (considering I can get a watch at a superstore for $4), but I feel like this watch was closer to that level of quality than I would have liked.

We purchased this watch knowing it may get wet occasionally and it claimed to be water resistant. It wasn't. It failed due to moisture issues after running through some water sprinklers (not even fully submerged or under pressure) only a couple of months after purchase. Very disappointing. Timex did offer to replace the watch for the cost of shipping and handling. The new watch has now made it 6 months (including submerged in swimming pools). I would increase the stars if it holds up for at least a year.

Very dissatisfied by the quality of this watch's band. I've had to replace the band twice as it breaks for no apparent reason. I am not hard on my watches by any means, and I've had to replace this watch twice in the past two years. The band just seems to dry out and break. I'm not a swimmer so I know it is not a result of water. As a result the face of the watch falls out of the band and can be easily lost. More than anything it is a problem of a poor design. I'm sick of frequently replacing this watch and trying to glue the band back together so I'm giving up on this watch and looking into something different. Love the look of the watch, but it is definitely not worth the hassle.

8 years ago I had this same model, and it lasted nearly 6 years, wearing it pretty non stop, fishing in saltwater and freshwater, as well as saltwater swimming. I bought a new one, and was sorely disappointed. Like another reviewer, the name IronMan inferrs that this should be able to withstand an IronMan competition......couldn't be farther from that. This watch lasted for ONLY 3 total 30-45 minute ocean swims, then it went blank. I should have dunked it in a bag of rice after each swim, but didn't think I needed to based on past performance.

If you intend on using this for swimming, don't bother, find something else.

I have several of these watches I've purchased over the past 7 years (different colors). I exercise daily, mostly running but biking and other activities as well. If you want a solid basic watch that's easy to use, this is a great watch for you. I never take mine off... showers, swimming, sweat, rain, all of my watches work just fine, no problems. I see others complain about their watch having issues swimming. I don't know where they are swimming (how deep, etc), but I've worn mine swimming in pools, oceans and lakes and I've NEVER had any problems with it. Love the watch and will continue to buy more colors!

As other reviewers have indicated, this watch is not waterproof. However, you would expect that it would be able to withstand some rain when someone is out running. Today I had the watch quit by mile 14 during the Top of Utah marathon. Yes, it was raining........but it wasn't like I was swimming or anything. You can see water under the glass and there is nothing on the display. I needed this watch for the Galloway run/walk timer......so it really messed up my marathon. I guess your choice is to wrap your hand/wrist in plastic or buy a different brand of watch.
