This review is from: Timex Men's T5J581 1440 Sports Digital Black/Red Resin Strap Watch (Watch)
It is obvious that you won't be stopping traffic or getting robbed for this timepiece - but that's a good thing, right? This Waterproof watch from Timex goes for under 20 bucks. It's perfect for kicking around & it has a lot of useful functions. So far it seems pretty durable. You can even switch out the wristband if you'd like (so it's not all one fused together piece). Actually, the existing black band that it comes with is comfortable already, so it's not necessary to change it - it's just nice to have the option. In the dark, you get a green glowing backlit face (at the push of a button) which has already proven to be a convenient feature. The light stays on long enough for you to actually see the time, date, etc. There is a stopwatch function & you can program different time-zones - in a separate second screen. Without touching ANY buttons, it shows the date & time numerically, as well as the day in letters (example: Mon, Tues, Wed, etc). It has a big, readable font that's easy on the eyes. The most impressive thing is the waterproofing. I've had other inexpensive watches & they sometimes get moisture inside (condensation). Living in South Florida during the summer, our temperatures reach into the 100's with 99% humidity. Even with a rapid temperature change & being completely submerged in water (a dive into the pool or a quick, cool shower) this watch has proven to be sealed up pretty tight. So, if you're looking for something to keep good time & you like the looks of this watch, go for it! It comes in a box, so it'd make a nice "under 20 dollar" gift too.
