Rugged Watch - Big Display
on March 17, 2015
This is a nice rugged watch.
I was looking for something that had a big display that was easy to read while doing outdoor activities. I am not disappointed here.
I was worried about it being too big and bulky, but it is not.
The band is comfortable as other reviewers have mentioned.
The green LCD on black is unique but can be difficult to see in low light. The indiglo is required at night. There is a night mode to make any button turn on the indiglo, but it's easy enough to press the main button.
If you don't like the green on black you can opt for this version: http://www.amazon.com/Timex-T499519J-Expedition-Shock-Vibrating/dp/B00D3DTGWY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1426614604&sr=8-1&keywords=T499519J
The chrono will take lap/split times but you cannot toggle through them to review your times. I deducted 1 star for lacking this feature. It does have the ability for reminders of birthdays, anniversaries, monthly and yearly bills, etc. I find this feature redundant to my cell phone and wish they had put the effort into the ability to review laps.
