I already own the Timex Ironman 'Triathlon' GPS watch which I use for running. I wanted an inexpensive, but attractive, digital with a bit larger time display for casual wear - the time display on the Ironman is only about 2/3 the size of the 1440's. Setup was easy (normal display items plus daily alarm, 24-hour display and 'other' time zone); display size (the time, at any rate) is quite adequate; the watch is attractive. All the buttons worked fine for me . . . The only complaint I have is that the 'date' (day of month) display is easily partly obscured by any shadow cast by the high edge of the 1440 logo ledge at the top of the display. Also, the diameter of the face, at about 26mm, seems a tad small. However, this really is nit picking. The 1440 is a decent, attractive, 'name' digital at an unbeatable price!

This watch has already racked up a bunch of informative reviews, so I'll just add this brief personal experience:

I do a lot of working out, including jogging. I also mountainbike. I need a training watch to be rugged, simple, waterproof/sweatproof, have an alarm an a countdown timer. I also don't want to invest too much into a sports watch, as I tend to destroy them far before their natural service lives would otherwise be over with. I have Boss watches and Tag Heuers for professional life - I need near-disposable watches for when crashing my bicycle or banging my hands against iron weights.

This watch looks the sporty part, does everything I need so far, and it's so inexpensive that when the battery dies (if it survives that long), I will probably just replace the entire watch with a new one.

Four out of five stars due to not knowing how long the battery will last, or just how rugged it will end up being. For $14.88, though, it's already proved itself a bargain.

I recently purchased this watch for my 12yrs. old son. Since opening it on Christmas morning he has not parted with it. He loves the luminated feature as well as the bold numbers. I would recommend this for any one. Apart from the mentioned features the Resin strap is a plus as it is very durable. A total value for money.

This watch is great. Just got mine about 1 week ago, but there is one problem. Most people wouldn't notice this, but there is no option to turn the beep off when switching between the Clock, Stopwatch Etc. But otherwise a great watch for 15 Dollars!

Watch just arrived. It is a simple straight forward sports watch. Still like Timex for their Indiglo feature. It is one of the industry's best affordable timepiece illumination. The only downside to this watch is personal preference. I do not care much for the date feature. I would like it much more if they stayed with the Ironman style with the simple 2 letter readout (SU, MO, TU, WE, etc...) instead of the black dot. Looks like a work horse for years to come. Have always owned an Ironman and stuck with it but decided to see if quality was across the board. I feels like a nice sturdy piece and may replace my Ironman (temporarily) as it is about to retire.

A good inexpensive watch with straight forward easy to read display. Indiglo, a must have...

This watch is good value for the price. I'm 55, so I really appreciate the large font. I swim with it, run with it, shower with it, and use the stopwatch functions simultaneously. The only drawback is the easy-to-scratch glass face. It is really easy to scratch.

Works like a Timex...great watch, large numbers and simple interface as expected as I don't even miss my Timex Ironman sports watch.

I have a few expensive watches but decided to get a watch that I can use when exercising without having to worry about losing or damaging it. This watch fits the bill, it does almost everything you want it to do. I initially thought that the display was good sized, but after using it a couple of times for running, I found that it was not big enough (for me at least) so I decided to give it away and bought another timex with a bigger (44mm) face.

This watch has a very large, clear display - perfect for older eyes. I use it every day for lap swimming. I have been through more than a dozen watches after decades of running and I have a GPS watch, several dress watches, but the simplicity and functionality of this - at a terrific price - make this a great choice.

I wouldn't buy it again.

I thought people said in the reviews that this watch was small. I found it is rather large gets in the way. If this is a small watch then I'd hate to see what a big watch is like!

My next issue with it is the way the watch band is angled. I don't have big wrists, but the band needs to angle out a good 30 degrees on both side. When I set the watch on my arm it is held up about an inch away from my wrist. This lets junk, dirt, etc get under the watch. This makes the watch uncomfortable unless it's on the side of my wrist, which is a pain to read.

I didn't know before but I hate resin watchbands. It doesn't breathe at all, making my wrist constantly sweaty and itchy.

The final complaint is the window. It's bubbled so it sticks out above the plastic of the watch. Didn't take long for it to get scratched and I suspect it will become unreadable before the battery dies.

The features were fine, buttons work fine, and the price was great.
