tendency to store water under band, otherwise good watch
on July 20, 2015
This is the first time I've owned this particular model of Timex women's ironman watches, but I've owned at least six before this one of a slightly different model. I never had a complaint with what I got for the price (usually the band would break at the face and I'd replace the watch). That hasn't happened yet with this watch, which I have owned for almost two years now. However, I find it extremely frustrating that water accumulates in little pockets on the underside of the band both above and below the face. I have to stick my towel or something into those areas after getting my hands wet or else it can take hours for the water to evaporate on its own - I suppose it makes a perfect little seal with my wrist and the water can't escape easily. This little issue has caused unexpected water droplets to emerge on things I'd prefer to keep dry and also in some minor skin irritation. Otherwise it's been a decent watch and maybe it just isn't the Timex for me and I will go back to the old models that worked better for me. I included a picture with the water collection areas.
