The Timex Story
Timex Group B.V. is one of the best-known American watch companies. Timex's U.S. headquarters are located in Middlebury Connecticut and it has substantial operations in China, the Philippines and India and full scale sales companies in Canada, the UK, France and Mexico.
The company began in 1854 as Waterbury Clock in Connecticut's Naugatuck Valley, known during the nineteenth century as the "Switzerland of America." Sister company Waterbury Watch manufactured the first inexpensive mechanical pocket watch in 1880. During World War I, Waterbury began making wristwatches, which had only just become popular, and in 1933 it made history by creating the first Mickey Mouse clock under license from Walt Disney, with Mickey's hands pointing the time.
During World War II, Waterbury renamed itself U.S. Time Company. In 1950 the company introduced a wristwatch called the Timex. Over the next three decades, Timex was sold through a series of advertisements which emphasized its durability by putting the watch through "torture tests," such as falling over the Grand Coulee Dam or being strapped to the propeller of an outboard motor, with the slogan "It takes a licking and keeps on ticking." With the help of former Olympic broadcaster, spokesman John Cameron Swayze, sales took off. The company later became Timex Corporation, then Timex Group and, to date, has sold over one billion watches.
The company has remained very competitive and the Timex brand continues its dominance through present day. Its primary market remains the United States and Canada, although the Timex brand is sold worldwide due to its ability to capitalize on its strong brand image and reputation for quality.
One of the most successful and important features available on many Timex watches is the Indiglo backlight system. Indiglo is a brand name of Indiglo Corporation, solely owned by Timex for licensing purposes. Timex electroluminescent lamps, branded Indiglo, were introduced in 1992 in the Ironman watch line. They were an immediate success. The Indiglo lamp uniformly lights the surface of the Timex’s watch dials in a manner that makes the dial read very easily in many different light settings. In some newer watches the Indiglo backlight only lights up the numbers, rather than the entire LCD display, which is achieved by means of a specialized film that inverts the LCD transmissivity.
Today, Timex Group products are manufactured in the Far East and in Switzerland often based on technology that continues to be developed in the United States and in Germany. With a large and varied line of watches, Timex has the style for everyone. From the locker room to the board room, there is a great Timex style time-piece for you.

Recommended: Before starting a run, charge the watch, and delete all or most prior runs.
Starting a RUN outdoors (using GPS)
1. TURN ON GPS. Press the red ON/OFF button for a few seconds and release. The GPS icon in the upper right corner will start flashing. When the GPS icon stops flashing and becomes continuous, the GPS is ON. The number of bars indicates the strength of the signal.
2. Press and release the MODE button until RUN appears. The watch will then automatically cycle through the battery life message and the memory remaining message. You will then see on the first line of the three line display for the elapsed time: 000000 (the first two zeroes are minutes, the next two seconds, and the last two are tenths and hundredths of a second. The second line of the display the distance as 0.00 in km or miles. The third line shows one of four choices: pace, current speed, calories burned or the primary time in hr:min:sec.
3. Press RUN as you start running!
If you wish, at any time during or before your run, use the OK/View red button to cycle through the four choices on the third line. The first two lines (time and distance) remain the same.
4. After you finish, press and release SAVE/STOP. Then if you are really finished, press and hold SAVE for a few seconds (you must do this to stop the timer and reset it whether you want to save the run or not).
5. Turn off the GPS with the red ON/OFF button
If you wish to review the run or delete it, press and release the MODE button until REVIEW appears. Toggle (press and release) the OK/VIEW button to select a run and until you see VIEW, DEL and ALL. To delete all runs, press and release the SAvE/STOP button until the ALL flashes, then press OK/VIEW.
I hope this helps. Someday designers and programmers will learn that customers sometimes want a very simple to use device and will design it accordingly. (I give five stars to the Timex help team on the internet site).
Battery life seems ok as well as GPS accuracy and the price is a bit cheaper than the Garmin. After the Garmin strap broke on me twice within five months I decided to go back to Timex watches, hopefully this strap is more durable.
