5.0 out of 5 stars Comfortable for the runner, June 21, 2012
This review is from: Timex Men's T5K495 Ironman Traditional 50-Lap Sport Watch (Watch)
Needing a watch that has a lap timer and interval timer, I was very pleased when my wife bought this for me for Fathers Day. First off, I am mid forties, training for my first ever marathon and Ironman, so there a few features that are really helpful for me:

1. The comfort - This is not a big bulky watch like a G-Force or other timepiece that will feel like you are carrying a weight on your wrist. I hardly notice it on my wrist at all, and that is very important to me so that when I run, swim or cycle, it isn't a distraction or requiring 'getting used to'.
2. The display is large - My eyes are getting older and having a clear, crisp, large display is needed. I can glance down and see the timers without having to strain or put the watch up to my face to see.
3. Lap Timers - This feature is great for long runs, and key to marathons. At 50 laps, you can keep this watch going without having to hit reset but once an hour or longer depending on your pace.
4. Interval Timer - This is by far the best feature for me on this timepiece. You can set up interval timers and the watch will countdown and signal when one has been reached. So for example, if you are going to do a run/walk interval race, you can set one for 12 minutes, the next for 1 minute, then repeat and the watch will alarm at each interval, moving to the next until it comes to a 'zero' set. My marathon running training is 12 minutes run, 1 minute walk. This watch does the counting for me, and by using this feature as well as the Lap Timer, I feel I am well informed as to my pace so I can maintain consistency.

There are other features of the watch I have yet to use, but so far, it has met all of my expectations from a quality Timex product.
