No laps/splits recall for stopwatch, no support from Timex,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Timex Men's T5K086 1440 Sport Watch with Black Band (Watch)
I bought this cheap little Timex to replace the other cheap one I bought over ten years ago for about the same price at Target. The old one actually has more features, including the essential splits/laps and recall function that every runner needs at some point. Given the incredibly low cost of the microprocessor that goes into this, it's inexcusable not to program these features into the watch... unless of course it's deliberately crippled so you buy a more expensive one that's identical except for a few lines of code. For shame, Timex. I thought that maybe the instructions were missing something, but when I went to the Timex website for support, a search for this model pulls up nothing, not even a "sorry this is discontinued and we no longer offer support" - just "Item not found". I can look up my 15 year old inkjet printer on the HP website and get all sorts of support, from manuals to software, but could Timex even bother to keep a manual from last year's model? No. Might have to go to Casio after all these years of wearing Timex.

I recently bought this watch and based on your comment I am wondering, "Is this really a Timex watch?" I can't find the word Timex anywhere on my watch. The 1440 sports watch from two years ago has the word "Timex" in three locations.
