This watch is an upgrade from my previous one. The color is very similar to the picture and I like how big the screen is. Also, the main screen has the date which has been very handy. I no longer have to be looking for my cellphone to know the date.
My issues with this watch are the strap, "tap" screen technology, and programs.
The strap hurts because it was very inflexible. I had to make it a couple holes looser. With wear, it has loosened.
I got this watch because I thought the tap screen technology would be beneficial for my swim regimen. However, the tap screen is not as sensitive as I thought. It is automatically set at a medium tap but I have to forcefully tap it repeatedly for it to pick up. I've tried to use it for swimming but it is not as accurate as I like. The manual recommends for the tap screen to be set at high for swimming. It does not work at medium tap, so I doubt it will work on hard. I will try it on soft tap in the future.
Lastly, I have tried to use the other programs but I have been having trouble setting each one. For the interval, it was automatically set at an HOUR......who would do an interval for an hour?? I used this interval and after my 1st set realized this. I had already spent a lot of time getting to this program and so I did not waste anymore time re-setting it.
Other than that, I really like this watch. I am sure in time I will figure out how to use the additional programs.

NOT nearly as pink/dark pink as the picture shows, more like light pink/pastel or almost white. I like the fit, it doesn't swing around like my old ironman timex women's black watch. The strap is a bit thick though, doesn't slide into buckle as easy as older timex watch. I like the tap feature, easy to use. I LOVE the feature where you can use the light button and it only illuminates the numbers, instead of the whole watch face... nice for movie theaters. Nice size, digits are easy to read and so nice to have day of the week in addition to date as I kept forgetting which day of the week it was! Overall would recommend. Don't like the fact that if the band breaks, it's not replaceable... but that's life I guess. Wish it had the preset countdown alarms but I can live with this one. Nice watch, wish it came with additional strap loop/keeper as that's what broke first on my last timex resin strap.

Follow up: I still love the face of this watch... the numbers and date are large and easy to read. I do NOT like the strap. Due to the pale washed out pink color with white, it shows a lot of dirt. Plus I HATE the strap keeper thingie... it only allows you to push the extra strap part in about 1/8 of an inch. The keeper thingie has a protrusion which then lines up with the tail end of the strap... I'd rather have a keeper than you can slide all the way onto the strap tail. My strap keeps coming out of the keeper. Bad design. Great watch but bad strap. It would be nice if you could replace the strap down the road.

Another thing I noticed... I had a black timex ironman women's watch before.... I think black is neater, the light colored pink and white may be more feminine but it makes the watch look LARGER... picture a white bike helmet vs a black bike helmet... which one makes your head look bigger? The white!

Have swum in pools, ocean and showered, painted, yardworked in this watch. Working great still but I have scratched the face somehow.

I'm a college track coach and I have used this watch for 4 months now. It is an amazing alternative to the glitches of a GPS watch that always has to be charged. This is a great watch for someone who wants to simply get back to the basics. I am easily able to take/collect splits for my runners who are racing as far as a 10k while being able to view BOTH the current running split and the overall race time (that is a wonderful asset that is difficult to find in a watch).

Additional aspects such as water resistance and the tap feature are an added bonus to seal the deal for coaching.

I'm in school for engineering & came across this beauty luckily! It's great! Has an alarm & many other features such as lap time tracker by simply tapping the screen. Someone else wrote that the watch was small, I disagree it's not too small or too big it's perfect & I love the color.

Watch works fine but died within a few months. Would have expected more. My previous, older model lasted for years. The tap screen is difficult to use and not as useful as I had hoped.

Watch arrived well packaged and on time. I use it in the water while I do laps. The taps work well there too. Works as advertised albeit in a rather cumbersome way. It's clearly no iphone but on the plus side, it costs a lot less. One drawback: it came already "on". This means who knows how long it has been in storage running the battery down. Indeed, after only two weeks of use, it gave one last long beep and went blank. Fortunately, there is a YouTube video that explains how to change a timex battery, and the guy in that video is actually changing one in an ironman watch. Search for "Timex battery replacement" by richsmethods. Worked beautifully. Watch is now alive and ticking - sort of. FYI: the battery is a CR1620 - found online easily.

I ordered this watch, hoping that the negative reviews were a fluke. Absolutely not! I took this janky watch out of the package, tried to turn it on and couldn't. Took it to my jeweler to check if it's a bad battery, yes it was the battery was dead. Replaced it with a new battery.....STILL DEAD! This is beyond frustrating! I only gave it one star because I can't give it zero stars!
