This review is from: Timex Women's T5E511 "Ironman" Purple Resin Sport Watch with Gray Band (Watch)
Initially, I really liked this watch. It's comfortable, does everything I need, and worked well in the pool. But . . . after a few months, one of the plastic pads on the main function button fell off, leaving the metal pin underneath exposed, but still working.
After a few more months, all 4 pads fell off, leaving 4 exposed pins that would catch on everything and gave me a few nasty scratches. When the battery died, I took the watch to a watch shop to have the battery replaced. Since I swim, I wanted a knowledgeable person to replace the battery to keep the watch waterproof. Well, after the seal was broken, all the functions stopped working, audible alarms, stopwatch, timer, and light. Only the time still functioned. Then I took a trip to a river with my family. Even though I wasn't submerged, just playing in the water, the face developed condensation and the next day everything died. The watch is inexpensive, but I sure expect it to last longer than the life of the battery.
