This review is from: Timex Women's T2N313 Core Digital Two-Tone Expansion Band Watch (Watch)
I have used a Timex Expedition watch at home for years because of the countdown timer feature. Very handy for timing laundry and cooking. But the Expedition was ugly, so when the battery died the last time I bought this watch.

LIKES:
Much better looking than the Expedition!
Nice big numbers on the display.
Display lights up when alarm goes off.
Comfy expansion band. Fits my wrist perfectly. (probably too big for someone with slim wrists)
Easy to use after reading the instructions.
Alarm & timer sounds are pleasant and a bit musical - not just beeping.
Timer has a slightly different "halfway" tone for longer times.
Timer simply goes off at the end rather than every 30 seconds for the last 2 minutes like the Expedition.
Waterproof.
Reasonable price.
It's a Timex! I expect it to last a long time and not corrode.

DISLIKES:
Still a bit large for a woman's "dress watch".
Countdown timer has only preset choices: 1, 3, 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 45, 60 minutes.
Countdown timer does not remember the last setting, so you have to set it again each time.

Overall - I am loving this watch! It's attractive, useful, durable and affordable.

UPDATE 2013: Watch band has stretched out and will not retract. Not a common replacement so will have to call Timex.

Aw dang. The preset choices for the timer are a deal-breaker. Otherwise this seemed so perfect. Thank you for telling us that because I use the timer ALL the time on my old watch (which sadly just broke the unreplacable plastic band) and no one seems to mention what kind of timer a watch has in it's description.

And I really wanted a dressy digital watch with all the right features. :(
