I bought this watch a few years after giving away my Timex Ironman (to someone who needed it more than I did), trying to find one I liked as well, and I have to say this one fits the bill. It's very comfortably sized, the band doesn't pinch, and best of all, it's proven itself to be very watertight, and has suffered no damage from being worn while bathing two small children.

I have now had this watch for almost four years and it is still going strong, even with the abuse it's seen. With the arrival of a third child, it has suffered through the indignities of spit-up and feeding messes, many additional baths, the occasional run through the washer AND dryer (after I've needed to take it off, stuffed it in a jeans pocket and then forgotten to check said pocket before throwing the jeans in the washer), more bangs and drops than I can count, being used as a distraction for a cranky baby (I can't believe the glow function still works), and even being dropped in a few garden beds and mud puddles. Really, I have to wonder if dropping it in an active volcano would damage it; certainly, nothing else seems to phase it. The band is even still as good as new! If I ever have to replace it, I'm definitely going to try to find another of this same model.
