Do not use sunscreen near the watchband.,
This review is from: Timex Men's T5K495 Ironman Traditional 50-Lap Sport Watch (Watch)
I've had a couple of Timex Ironman watches with the "Black Resin Strap". My only complaint is the band disintegrates quickly if exposed to sunscreen. After a single exposure to sunscreen and sweat, you have a few weeks before it breaks. This happened at least twice. I'm going to buy another (for the reasons given in other reviews like big numbers, reliable alarm, familiarity, etc.) and try to remember my lesson. I have another Ironman with leather band, maybe wear that on sunny days.

The comment about bug spray clouding the crystal is also correct, and scratching is fairly easy. These problems, however, are common to most watches of this type.
