This review is from: Timex Men's T49949 Expedition Digital CAT Black Fast Wrap Velcro Strap Watch (Watch)
I finally wore out my previous Expedition after several years of hard use. I replaced it with this one. I use the count-down timer feature often. It is easy to set. The alarms are great for reminding me of important meetings. I use one of them to remind me to head home in time for dinner each night. You can set alarms to repeat only on weekdays, which prevents daily alarms from going off on the weekend. I actually use the second time zone to keep track of what time it in locations when family members travel. Sure you can figure out the time in your head, but with the touch of a button you can tell what time it is in Tokyo if someone you know happens to be visiting there and you want to send them a message on facebook or give them a call Velcro is not a good idea for something you take on and off frequently, so plan to replace the watch band within the first year. That is not worth taking points away from my rating, just be informed and plan to replace it. I went through five or six watch bands on my previous model - the watch just would not quit. Great battery life too. .
