This review is from: Timex Men's T5K588 "Ironman Sleek" Fitness Watch (Watch)
Let me start by saying that the watch itself is nice, it's a Timex Ironman! I have had over a dozen of the Ironman watches over the years, and other than a few minor issues, all have been great watches.
My problem is with Amazon. I do most of my shopping on Amazon as I find it very convenient and the prices seem to be fair. I am an Amazon Prime member and have ordered many, many items which I have been happy with. However, I have read numerous reviews over the years rating various products where customers stated that the product they received was in "used condition". I thought there must have been some mistake.
Anyways, I ordered this watch as a Christmas present and much to my surprise, it was in "used condition"! The watch had obviously been stuffed back in the box and there was a small scratch on the crystal.There were also several workouts stored on the watch. As I previously stated, I have had over a dozen of these watches over the years and know this is not normal. To have a 4 hour, a 3 hour and several smaller workouts stored in the memory is not the norm for a 'new' watch.
Very disappointed with Amazon especially with the inconvenience it caused trying to find another present. I will be returning this watch.
