Firstly, these just work. They are a no frills watch which is comfortable to wear since the strap is nice and soft and has plenty of adjustment holes.
The display is clear enough since it displays the time in large font, though I am not to keen on the font. I prefer the slightly more rounded font of the older generation watches similar to this.
The Alarm, stopwatch and countdown timer are modes I hardly ever use but the dual time zone is a useful feature, though this mode seems to revert to the standard time automatically which is odd and defeats the point.
If you are abroad you want it to always show the time of that zone and not return to your normal time.
They never used to do this on older versions.....
That aside, they are very easy to adjust when it comes to setting the time and date, same with setting the alarm, countdown timer etc.
I like the light, this was the main reason I moved to Timex from Casio, I do love that really good green light illuminating the whole display at night.
The option to change from 12h to 24h quickly is a good feature.
The colour for this one which looks like a nice deep blue around the display edge on the main selling page is not the colour I have received. It is actually a much more washed out blue. I have decided to keep it despite this not looking as advertised.
It's not an expensive watch and does not try to be. It is a decent timepiece which I wear everyday and do not mind getting the odd ding or scratch.
The screen will get scratched! It is only plastic sadly so a mark down for this.
The watch is a perfect size for me and is not heavy. You do forget you are wearing it. This for me is a main desired feature.
As I said, mine gets worn a lot, gets very dirty and has had plenty of underwater action at times and it still works fine after all this.
I've had these for years and hope the last two I have will keep going until I find a nice replacement.
My first two watches straps snapped where they connect to the fastener and I bought replacement watches. My third one is going and won't be long until it snaps too. I bought it 18 months ago. Maybe a replacement strap was what I needed - I can't find one for less that £17.99 - that's less than £2 less expensive than a new watch.
Maybe I should look around for better quality. Shame really as I have two fully functioning watches that I can't wear. I'm still debating whether 3 stars is generous - if the strap lasted longer it would definitely be a 5 star watch.
First of all, it is bulky. And I am a big guy who likes big watches. So if you are looking for something more discrete, or if you are a smaller type, this is not the one for you. That said, I think it looks very nice and modern if you are ok with the bigger size.
On the plus side, it's very easy to read and it has the features it says it has. The dual time is a plus for me, since I bought it both for spots and for travel. Hence keeping track of both local and home time is really useful.
On the minus side, well, a few:
1) It has no night mode, so the best you can do is read the hour at night. You can't really use the watch, like change the alarm setting. The light doesn't stay on long enough, and it's a mess. So if you need to actually use the watch/stop watch under low light conditions, don't get this one but go for a more expensive model with night mode (i.e., a way to keep the light on);
2) it has no way to turn off the beeps every time you hit a button. Not a huge deal, but try to set the alarm at night for the next morning and you will wake up your buddy or significant other.
3) it scratches. A lot. I've had it for roughly a month with normal use (i.e., no hiking/camping or rough sports) and the visor is all scratched.
4) a small one, but to set the time/alarm you can't do the minute decimals. That means, if you have 8:30 as an alarm and want to change to 7:20... you need to go all around in the hours, then go up from 30 all the way around to 20 in the minutes. And keeping the button pressed doesn't make it go really fast. If you don't keep it pressed it gets annoying, plus you'll hear 50 loud beeps - one for each time you press the button. This is easily solved in other models by having a different setting for the decimals and for the minutes. In that way, 7:20 is just six or seven clicks away from 8:30.
Anyway, if not for the easy scratching I'd have rated four stars. Unfortunately that's a big minus for me in a month old watch, so I'll have to go for "it's okay". I was close to saying "I like it" (4 stars), but not really. And that only considering that it's ok for a budget watch, so don't expect miracles.
