2.0 out of 5 stars Look for a better cheap watch, January 15, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Timex Women's T5K085 1440 Sports Digital Gray Resin Strap Watch (Watch)
I liked the watch as a cheap, practical sports watch with a decent alarm function. Setting the alarm wasn't intuitive, and it was easy to accidentally activate the stopwatch, etc. But I would have lived with that for the price, because all I *really* wanted was a watch and a daily alarm reminder.

But the strap broke suddenly (with no trauma--just fell off one day) after only a couple of months of light wear. Or more accurately, the plastic notch that holds the strap on broke, which means you can't fix it. And of course I didn't bother to keep the packaging for a $15 watch.

I'm not being a price snob--I don't think I've ever spent more than $30 on a watch, but I do expect them to hang in there for at least a year. So I'm back to my old (alarmless, alas) metal watch from Target that I've had for 5 years. No more plastic for me.
