1.0 out of 5 stars Low-quality construction detracts from appealing design, July 23, 2006
I bought one of these watches shortly after Timex introduced them. I was new to running at the time, and this was my first running watch. I chose this watch because I didn't need tons of bells and whistles, and the low profile of the watch appealed to me.

It worked great for about 10 months, and then one day it just...died. I think it was a winter day; I pressed one of the buttons before starting my run, and the display went blank. A new battery didn't help. It was still under warranty, so I shipped the watch (and a check for "shipping and handling") to Timex for warranty service. They replaced it with a new (or refurbished?) watch. After about 1 year, the exact same thing happened -- cold day, button pressed, dead watch.

Note that even though these watches carry a 1-year warranty, you still have to send Timex a check to get them serviced if they fail. This is spelled out in the very, very fine print of the owner's manual.
