Even better than I expected!,
This review is from: Timex Women's T2N313 Core Digital Two-Tone Expansion Band Watch (Watch)
Really happy with this watch! I wish I had searched for it over a year ago, because I've always wondered if there really was a better option than plastic wristbands for digital. I decided now that I'm about to start a new job, that I had to look more professional than plastic, and this really is a great looking and performing watch.
I'm very impressed with the mode menu and settings. I'm sure some people do think it's complicated because none of them are really easy, but I've used 3 different digital watches in the last 3 weeks while shopping for this one, so I no longer even need to look at manuals. They all work more or less, by pressing through the Mode button. Well, I was quite surprised that this one feeds you instructions in letter format as you go through the mode button! "Hold SET" "Hold RST" etc. It's the only digital watch I've ever seen that does that, and therefore, I had it set in even less time than usual. (About 2 minutes.)
One more tidbit on why you should buy this watch now, if you've ever been interested in having something like this. Yesterday, I took it to the mall to have it sized. The jewelry store couldn't do it, because it's the expandable/stretchy type of metal band, but there was a place in the mall called Watch Works or something like that. The repair lady looked it over and said, "Where did you find this watch?" And I said I bought it online. She said, "I have lots of people asking for a watch like this, but they aren't making it anymore." Go figure, maybe they aren't going to be making this model in the future?!
The nice people there measured it, told me to come back in 45 minutes and that it would be $8.99. When I came back, it fit perfectly, she had bagged the extra links in case it ever broke and needed to be repaired, and then they'd polished it and WOW it was really beautiful. (Since she polished it yesterday, it has stayed as shiny and brand-new looking. Looks even nicer than when I took it out of the box.)
The tones of the metals and the shine really look much more expensive than this affordable price, and I saw watches that were way more expensive - and I didn't think looked as nice. The slight gold tone and the silver go with all the jewelry I own. Like I said, I couldn't be happier and it is even better than I expected!

Can you tell me if this watch has a stopwatch function? lap/split mode?

The watch has STPW (stop watch), TMR (Timer) and ALM (Alarm) modes.
Stop Watch counts up. No sound or alarm, but yes you can start and stop it or stop it and reset.
Timer counts down and when it reaches the end it sounds a different 'song' than the Alarm mode.
As far as Lap/Split modes, I have to confess that I've never learned how that works or how to use that in any of my past digital watches. I'm pretty sure this watch wasn't meant to be as detailed as another kind of athletic type watch. But if you're just looking to count up and pause or continue, count down, or have an alarm go off the same time every day, like me, it definitely works for workouts and every-day things.

Looks really large in the photo. Would it be too big for a lady with smaller wrists?
