Product Description

Timex Group B.V. is one of the best-known American watch companies. Timex's U.S. headquarters are located in Middlebury Connecticut and it has substantial operations in China, the Philippines and India and full scale sales companies in Canada, the UK, France and Mexico.

The company began in 1854 as Waterbury Clock in Connecticut's Naugatuck Valley, known during the nineteenth century as the "Switzerland of America." Sister company Waterbury Watch manufactured the first inexpensive mechanical pocket watch in 1880. During World War I, Waterbury began making wristwatches, which had only just become popular, and in 1933 it made history by creating the first Mickey Mouse clock under license from Walt Disney, with Mickey's hands pointing the time.

During World War II, Waterbury renamed itself U.S. Time Company. In 1950 the company introduced a wristwatch called the Timex. Over the next three decades, Timex was sold through a series of advertisements which emphasized its durability by putting the watch through "torture tests," such as falling over the Grand Coulee Dam or being strapped to the propeller of an outboard motor, with the slogan "It takes a licking and keeps on ticking." With the help of former Olympic broadcaster, spokesman John Cameron Swayze, sales took off. The company later became Timex Corporation, then Timex Group and, to date, has sold over one billion watches.

The company has remained very competitive and the Timex brand continues its dominance through present day. Its primary market remains the United States and Canada, although the Timex brand is sold worldwide due to its ability to capitalize on its strong brand image and reputation for quality.

One of the most successful and important features available on many Timex watches is the Indiglo backlight system. Indiglo is a brand name of Indiglo Corporation, solely owned by Timex for licensing purposes. Timex electroluminescent lamps, branded Indiglo, were introduced in 1992 in the Ironman watch line. They were an immediate success. The Indiglo lamp uniformly lights the surface of the Timex’s watch dials in a manner that makes the dial read very easily in many different light settings. In some newer watches the Indiglo backlight only lights up the numbers, rather than the entire LCD display, which is achieved by means of a specialized film that inverts the LCD transmissivity.

Today, Timex Group products are manufactured in the Far East and in Switzerland often based on technology that continues to be developed in the United States and in Germany. With a large and varied line of watches, Timex has the style for everyone. From the locker room to the board room, there is a great Timex style time-piece for you.

    Hooks (hard part of Velcro) are wider than loops.

    Light (indigo) is also good with clarity in time reading.

    I bought this a couple months ago for my wife. She likes to run both outdoors and indoors on a treadmill. She absolutely loves it! She was looking for a watch that was intuitive and functional, but most of all, low cost. This is it. This has all the features of a $100 watch.

    This watch really stands out IMO for two reasons.
    1. It's light and comfortable. The band is the best feature this watch has going for it. The band is flexible and she barely knows she's wearing it while she runs. It's not the cheap plastic band your are accustomed to from low cost sports watches.
    2. The stopwatch function is VERY easy to use. The buttons are in the perfect position to operate while still keeping your eye on the road or or more importantly, a treadmill.

    Other than the above, this watch operates on par with any other watch but the features above and the price put it notch above the rest. There are no discernible downsides. For under $40, you cannot go wrong.

    There are 3 alarms, a timer and a chronometer. I love love this watch. The new band design is Velcro not the plastic (I had a couple of these watches over the years and the plastic band would break after 3 years of constant wear). Just a note, although the watch is waterproof, you should probably remove when getting wet - the Velcro band takes forever to dry.

    Update: the LED light stopped working a few weeks ago -annoying but I was still ok. The band broke (the part that actually attaches to the watch) today. Have been buying this model for 10 years - they usually last about 3 years but this one didn't. Disappointed.

    Hooks (hard part of Velcro) are wider than loops. Hooks catch fabric and pull threads. Can't wear with most exercise clothing.

    I bought this for the reliability of the Timex brand. I like all the functions, but will probably only use a few. My only negative would be that the strap is a bit bulky where you fold it back to the velcro. I suppose that will fit better with more wear. All in all a good deal!

    The band is incredibly uncomfortable and stiff. Returned it.

    Got this for my daughter. She does not wear it in the shower. Leaving it in a humid bathroom is enough to INTERNALLY fog this watch. This is her second one. Returned the first one thinking it was defective. Watch works still, for now. Was Amazon lightening deal, so will keep it. She loves the size and style.

    Great size & band is super comfortable. The fabric-velcro band doesn't move around on wrist during the day, unlike the usual rubber ones, even if I place it on the tightest fit for my wrist & then it becomes hot & sweaty while I'm running. So, I'm loving this style, hopefully it lasts longer then the rubber bands, that seems to crack after 6mths-1yr, whether dive or workout watches.

    To be honest, I haven't spent a lot of time researching everyday, inexpensive watches, but I got one of these in the men's size a long time ago, and I really liked it. It had multiple time zones, a light for the face, and it kept decent time. The Velcro band does wear out eventually, and the rubber loops will eventually break. Replacement bands are tricky from model to model, but the men's model used to have a solution. For my first replacement, I got the ladies model as a gift. It is essentially identical to the men's, except for the size - the men's is very large, and the ladies is just an average men's size. I have small wrists, so it works for me.

    Again, the Velcro and the rubber eventually wear out on the ladies watch, too, and replacement bands were hard to figure out (even on the Timex website) and expensive. The bigger problem was, the ladies version I had ran fast - noticeably fast, as in gained a minute every 45-60 days. I haven't started tracking this new one yet, but based on casual observation, it seems to be keeping much better time - perhaps the previous one was an outlier.

    Anyway, based on it having features, size, stye, and price that I like, it gets 4 stars, losing 1 for the band issues. If it proves to be inaccurate time-wise, that would drop to 1 or 2. If I finally monitor it and discover a meaningful degree of time error, I'll update this post.
