The Indiglo night-light uniformly lights the surface of the watch dial using patented blue electroluminescent lighting technology. It uses less battery power than most other watch illumination systems, enabling your watch battery to last longer. The Night Mode feature allows you to illuminate the Indiglo night-light for 3 seconds with any button press, regardless of the mode or function. The watch is water resistant to 30 meters (165 feet)--suitable for swimming but not for diving. All Timex heart rate monitor sensors have batteries that can be replaced by consumers without requiring them to be returned to the manufacturer.

I am so pleased with this product. The instructon manual was clearly written and easy to understand. There are just enough functions for me without loading the product up with things I will never use. That makes using it simple and I can remember how to use it without having to refresh my memory by repeatedly rereading the manual.
The monitor is an excellent watch when not using the heart rate features. Best of all I can change the batteries myself when the time comes without sending the thing off in the mail to a service center.
On top of all that the price was reasonable. This is one of those few purchases that exceeded my expectations because everything that it does, it does a little bit better than I had hoped for.
The chest strap is snug and comfortable; the watch is unisex but for women with tiny wrists it might be a bit too loose; I myself wear it the tightest possible setting.
Aesthetically it looks great. It's not something that I personally would go around wearing all the time, but it's easy to read and the buttons are easy to use. The indigo is not ideal for when I'm running on the street in the evening since it lights up the numbers rather than the whole face of the watch, but this is a tiny issue.
Overall, fantastic product, and I'm so glad that something this well-featured is availiable at such a competitive price from Timex.
2. The watch looks nice enough to wear all the time as your main watch.
3. The strap that needs to be used to send your heart beats is comfortable.
4. You can learn the HRM quickly if you fool around with it a little bit. If you are a computer nerd, you will learn it in less that one hour.
5. The only thing negative is that it uses batteries like crazy. I have to use a new battery every week and that costs $5. There is no shut off botton on the transmitter so it is constantly on and the battery drains.
1.Improved elastic band and toggle lock.
2.Coded digital transmitter, reduces interference,
(May not work with gym machines as most of these still are analogue receivers.)
3. Transmitter battery can be changed by user, costs $ 2.00
4. Watch battery can be changed at Sears Jewellery, less than $ 15.00
1.Gimmicky. Too many modes. Just about figured it out.
2.The booklet describes all functions first and HRM set up last.
3. If above XL male, the HRM strap may be short, loose elasticity due over stretch.
Timex T5G971, which I lost, is better because:-
1.Simple On/Off switch to start recording also handles the audio alerts.
2.Recall and Recovery buttons at 7 o' clock and 5 o'clock positions. Self explanatory functions.
3.T56971 shows current BPM, records time of activity, max/min pulse, average pulse, time in zone, recovery rate, cals burnt, corrected for age, weight, gender.
I recommend T5G971, also it is analogue, costs $ 20 less, have used for 18 months, being non digital transmitter, works with most gym machines as of today.
