Large Digits, But Difficult To Read
on January 26, 2013
I bought this watch for use when running, skiing, and other activities where I don't wear my reading glasses...I reached the age where my arms just aren't long enough any more:). The digits are large and readable indoors, Just like I'd hoped. But, in sunlight, or when wearing sunglasses - even light amber lenses, the contrast between the digits and the very blue background is inadequate, and I can not read the watch. So, I would not recommend this watch for any outdoor requirements - whether you need reading glasses, or not - because the display is just too hard to read, especially when running or swinging a ski pole. The TIMEX triathlon watches that I've used for many years are much easier to read, even though the display is about 1/2 - 2/3 the size of this watch's.
I wish TIMEX would offer a watch with this size of display. Also note that this watch does not have a lap-timer/lap recall function.
