4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for a 9 year old boy!, October 4, 2011

This review is from: Timex Unisex T5G841 1440 Sports Digital Silver-Tone/Black Resin Strap Watch (Watch)
This watch was purchased for our 9 year old son to replace a no-name sports watch that broke apart at the strap connection during a soccer practice. 9 year old kids are rough on things, but I was impressed that he kept up with it long enough for it to break. I suppose that swimming in the pool with the old watch on probably didn't do the plastic case any good and it eventually became brittle enough to break.

My biggest concern with buying a watch online was the size. His wrists are slender and I was afraid this watch might be too big. I figured that the price was low enough to take a risk and he would eventually grow into it if it were too big.

We put the watchband in the smallest hole, but the case of the watch is the perfect size. Not too big at all. It seems well built and should survive the rigors of rough play. I like that it is waterproof, fairly simple, and the buttons are easy to operate. The built in light works well enough. One of the best improvements with this watch over his old one is that the band in plastic. This will prevent it from absorbing water and sweat. That is a good thing, since the old cloth strap on his former watch was beginning to get funky. Finally, I like the fairly simple style. My son is too old for Toy Story or similar character watches. He wanted something more grown up looking.

For the price, I don't think you can go wrong with this for a kid. I recommend it. The size is pretty close to a ladies small sports watch, so I think a woman with smaller wrists might also find this watch to be well fitting

Update: After owning this watch for six months, one of the buttons fell off. It still works, but you need a paperclip or something to set it. I'm taking a star off for that and knocking it down to 4 starts.
