For the past 2 years I've been wearing a very trendy and large but attractive Timex, got plenty of compliments. But I've been missing the date factor. And now that I'm retired, some mornings I don't know what day it is :-) Could not find an affordable analog with day and date without it being mens and too big (not sure why men are entitled to know what day it is more than women...lol) Hesitated on getting this type of watch for fear it would be too manly looking. But for the price, DAY & DATE, and attention to measurements... decided to try it. I love love love it!! I have thin wrist and my large attractive watch was really not that comfortable. This one is lighter and more comfortable...not too large or small, not too thick. Instructions are not included but the paper says to go to timex.com/manuals. However, I called the contact # for Timex, got a very pleasant and helpful rep who not only emailed me the directions but also walked me through setting up my watch. Once it's set, that's it! I couldn't be more pleased, and LADIES... YOU WON'T GO WRONG... seriously. The subtle purple is dark with pale lavender buttons...not loud or obnoxious at all!! Now, if this holds up like I'm used to with Timex..... YAY :-) NEED TO ADD -- this particular model was not on the website manuals page....why I called. Rep said model is newer, not on site yet.
First of all, to address all the negative reviews, I would like to point out that the instructions are folded very tightly into a very small rectangle and stuffed inside the plastic watch holder that comes in the box. I have been using Timex watches for a very long time, so I do not require instructions, but I do recall that the last time I read them they were reasonably intelligible.
I like pretty much everything about the watch. I thought it might be a little larger, but the size is fine. The chrome ring around the face kind of blinds me when the light catches it just right. As for setting the watch, it’s very strait forward so ignore the reviews that say it’s hard to set. It took me 1 minute to completely set it with alarms and all. It’s a good looking watch and easy to read. Love it!
This watch was very affordable and once set, it was quite reliable. However...
Very happy with the purchase. I have small wrists and usually I have to buckle watches at the very last notch, with this one I only have to go until the 3rd to last, so it's a good fit for smaller wrists. It's nice and thin so it does not bother the top of my wrist. I've worn it to the gym and gotten a couple of black scuffs on it, they wiped right off just by rubbing or with a wet paper towel. The instructions that came with it were not helpful to set the watch, but it's very easy to do using the mode and set buttons on the watch. No bells and whistles here really. I just wanted a watch with a large display with the date and time, and this fits the bill. It does have a timer, chrono, and 1 alarm.
I've been wearing Timex Ironman watches for over 20 years. To me this is the best looking one! Even though I have small wrists, I've often purchased the men's watches for the larger face (so I can easily read it on the fly!). This watch has an easily visible face but with a smaller band than the usual men's watch. I like it!
Thw gold rim looks very nice and hasn't scratched within the month that I've owned it. It is also waterproof so that's great when I forget to take it off in the shower (haven't tested its deep diving capability). Something VERY annoying in the design is only one alarm. All the other sporty models I've owned had three alarms. This is the same technology but larger screen so why only one alarm?!
I have had this watch for one month. I bought this watch to wear at work and the campsite. I'm a nurse so I need to see the seconds counting. The Indiglo helps a lot on night shifts too! I love that it's super easy to wipe down with disinfectant wipes at the end of a shift. At the campsite, I love not having to take it off to go swimming. As you can see in the photo, the silver border around the watch is already scratched a bit after one month. The silver part isn't actually metal, it's plastic. Despite that, I still love this watch and I hope it lasts for a long time.
I really liked the look of this watch. I have been wearing timex watches for over 15 years and I probably liked the look of this one better than the previous models. Each one of them lasts me a year maybe 2 but I still continue to buy them.
The watch itself is great as al timex watches arw. The white band was discoloured in a week which really sucks. I knew white was a bad idea, but i loved the look of this watch. It now has a white face and a grey band. Nothing has made it white again.
Looks great and works well. I always get Ironman watches...they usually only last me a few years as I have it on all the time and swim with them...either buttons stop working or the strap cracks, but I think it's just normal wear and tear. Love Ironman watches. This one looks a little dressier than others.
GORGEOUS yet functional, durable women's watch. I've worn Timex Ironman watched for DECADES and *FINALLY* they make them in beautiful and aesthetically pleasing models. Got tons of compliments.
