When my diver style Expedition died after years of faithful service, I went to replace it and found Timex no longer makes an equivalent watch, so why not try something new.
I chose this watch for several reasons...Digital vs. my fondness for analog watches...size, (XL does mean Extra large), as I wanted something I could read without having to squint if I wasn't wearing my glasses, and the durability I expected from the Expedition line as I never take my watch off except to change to a "dress" watch when the occasion presents itself or to change watches just for the sake of change, and finally, the price was reasonable for a guy who spends his day working on the property or hunting or fishing and subjects his watch to any manner of knocks, chemicals, liquids, dirt or mud...one might say I put the "beat" in beater watches.
It is a very large watch, but since I'm 6'1" and 215 lbs, it does not look out of place on my wrist; if I were smaller I would consider it too large, however, it's too thick and has a tendency to hang up in spaces I wouldn't normally consider as being confined, like putting my hand in a pocket... It's a watch labeled as "Shock" so thickness is to be expected but It's as least 1/3 again thicker than my G-shock.
The ability to turn off features not needed is a plus. I my case I turned off the alarm features as the audible alarm isn't loud enough for my less than perfect hearing and the vibration isn't sufficient to wake me from a sound sleep...no big deal as my smart phone does wake me, but I've never gotten in the habit of pulling out my phone to check the time; I suppose it's a generational thing.
The biggest issue is the display. Simply stated, it's not bright enough. Many times I have to cant my wrist in multiple direction to find the right angle to read the time. I want to be able to read the time in one quick glance regardless of viewing angle. At night the Indiglo feature is sufficient to read the time but it could/should be brighter in my opinion...but being brighter would probably affect battery life. Other reviewers commented on the dimness of the display...I wish I had paid closer attention to those comments.
The watch is simple to operate and the price differential for a watch rated for Shock compared to the "C" brand is significant...it's taken a couple of hard lumps in the two weeks I've had it and has held up well and immersion hasn't affected it, keeps good time...probably a good watch but it's not for me.
After a month with this new watch, the T499059J EXPEDITION SHOCK, it is much, *much* more durable than the other Timex alternative.
There are three alarm options, which is nice. The vibrating function is about the same effect as the older T49851, but with the bigger watch face it is more effective in waking me up.
As to the other reviewer who noted that it is not a G-Shock, this is, in fact, correct. It is not a G-Shock, nor does it have the property of magically becoming one after it is ordered.
**update** only a couple hours after giving this a 5 star review it sorta broke on me.. Like I mentioned earlier the rubber 'band' around the face of the watch (the 6 fake screws and where is says shock and expedition) came nearly all the way off leaving it hanging and. Taking away from how the watch looks.. I will attempting to get a new watch as I love it but I simply can't wear it anymore because this rubber piece hanging off will drive me nuts
Overall use: I love the display! LOVE IT!!! It's big, It's bold, It stands out and there no second look needed to make sure you saw what you think you saw. (OK so I lied about the proportion comment, but big display goes with the size) The back light is perfect! The display is opposite/inverse of all the other Timex I've owned and hands down this is a thousand times better. I'll never go back to the standard LCD display. NEVER! I've not used any of my old watches since this purchase. They've been relegated to BOB's, EDC and Gym bags. The alarms are the standard tones my other Timex have been, the controls are pretty much the same which I like just for the familiar use. If you've been looking for a bigger dynamic display on a watch, are not intimidated by a larger watch or have bigger arms and hands, this is the ticket.
Last note, Can't wait to get it out in the elements and really abuse this thing. My expectation is that it will perform as well as it's predecessors.
