I bought this watch for my partner as she wanted a watch that fitted her small wrist. She used it for timing her whilst swimming. This was fine for the first four months, then when water got into this waterproof watch the screen then went blank. The watch seemed to do everything that she wanted and it looked good to. We felt that it was reasonable value for money and had good reviews.
Amazon, however has replaced this watch with another one without any quibbles, we did this rather than money back as she was very happy with the original performance, but if this happens again we may change brands.
We still think that the watch is worth the money.

Arrived quickly, ordered on Saturday pm, arrived Tuesday am, well packaged.
It's a bit smaller than I thought it would be, but it's nice and light & you don't even know you're wearing it, which I guess is half the point?
The functions are good, easy to read in low light & sunlight, and very responsive.
The recall function is especially good, recalling up to 30 lap times, good to note for discipline's & transitions.

All in all, for the price, you would be hard pushed to find a better all rounder. I would definitely recommend this watch, and the seller.

It was a gift for Christmas that made a big surprise.
The size is a perfect for a boy nine years old.

Timex Sport Ironman Midsize Triathlon 30 Lap Watch - T5E961
The watch arrived 3 days after ordering.
I have been using it now for 4 weeks. I use it only as a lap timer/counter when swimming (1 lap = 2 lengths) so this review does not cover any of the other functions available (eg. alarms).
Pros :-
It all works as expected.
Cons :-
1. On taking it out of the box I found that the small loop in which you can tuck the strap end was broken. I use a small tie-wrap to do the job, but a rubber band would probably also work.
2. The 'Start/Split' button is not sufficiently positive. It needs to be pushed carefully as it can be subject to both 'missed hits' and 'double hits'. It is worth putting it to your ear to listen for the beep when pushing the button. This is something the manufacturers could work on, but may have to be expected in a small watch such as this.
3. The digits used to display the lap counter are small (the lap time is given in larger digits). They are easy to read out of the water, but in the pool I cannot read them without removing my goggles and wiping the water off the display. This means I cannot just glance at the watch to check the number of laps. This is partly due to the fact that this is a relatively small watch (I did not want something too ostentatious) and that my eyesight is not what it was. It may be worth getting a larger version.
4. The Indiglo light is so weak that it can only be useful in near total darkness. However, I have no intention of swimming in the dark, so this is not a problem.

Summary :-
A serviceable watch which does what I wanted. Good for the price (£26.49).
Before buying this type of watch, it may be worth overestimating the number of lengths you expect to complete. I have now gone beyond the 60 length maximum I anticipated, so wish I had bought one with a larger lap memory.

Got this to help me train for my first marathon and it has done exactly that. I have skinny wrists and didn't want anything too big - this is still a little big but I'm happy with it nonetheless (I have to tighten it to the second last hole). It is easy to use if you read the instructions first and the face is easy to read.

This looks really sleek on my wrist and is just right for my very small wrist. But I found the process for setting the different functions fiddly and confusing. The Polar watches are much more intuitive when it comes to the way the buttons work for programming functions. For the price tho this watch is fine for what it is.

Purchased the mid-size as I have small wrists and it is just the right size. The instructions are not perfect so I had to look on the internet to find out all I wanted to do and the layout of the instructions could be improved. The watch itself is excellent value for money.

Watch was as described, arrived within the stated time, absolutely no complaints. The midsize watch was great for a teenager's slim wrist and build (he is just over five foot tall) and he really liked it. I would expect no less from a purchase.

It is very good, and I likes it very much. However, although it is easy enough to set for initial use, considering that is intended for as a boys watch. the instructions for ultimate use are a little on the complicated side.
