5.0 out of 5 stars Good Reliable Watch!
Im a serving member of the forces and an avid distance runner. This watch is ideal for me as it is robust for the military side of life and looks OK too. It also does very well for my running watch as the screen and digits are large. Not only that but you do not need to have the watch face exactly parallel to viewing in order to get a good display of the digits. Also...

3.0 out of 5 stars good product!
I use this watch at the gym; decent product, not much to say really. The dial is of a very good size which kinda fits well to your wrist. The only downside is I found the watch very complicated to set up and the instructions booklet is not very helpful.

Im a serving member of the forces and an avid distance runner. This watch is ideal for me as it is robust for the military side of life and looks OK too. It also does very well for my running watch as the screen and digits are large. Not only that but you do not need to have the watch face exactly parallel to viewing in order to get a good display of the digits. Also handy is the notch in the buckle which helps to hold the strap perfectly in place! I am deploying to Afghan in a few weeks and will only be taking one watch, this one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great watch great price, 6 April 2011

This review is from: Timex Sport Marathon Fullsize Quartz Watch with LCD Dial Digital Display and Black Resin Strap T5K4234E (Watch)
These are my 1nd timex watch and I'm impressed. They are bigger than I thought they going to be and they look great for [].
I wanted watch which I could take to gym and swimming pool and sauna. These are 50m water resist which should be more than enough for that. (I used my casio splash proof watches for diving up to 35m in Red sea and they were OK).
They got indiglo light which is great for nightime and the numbers are more than 1cm big so very easy to see time even bleary eyed in the middle of the night.
All in all very satisfied.

Beat watch for running and sports in general. Clear to read and simple to program. Large numbers help those of us over 40!

Excellent product. Dint expect this quality at the price it is being sold. Trendy and attractive watch. Far better than my 90 quid Police. Just go for it.

I didn't realise quite how it would actually look when on, picture makes it look okay, but when wearing it the quality of the watch (especially for the tiny price of £15) really shines.

Great Purchase

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Value at £16, but Limited Functionality, 20 Nov 2012

This review is from: Timex Sport Marathon Fullsize Quartz Watch with LCD Dial Digital Display and Black Resin Strap T5K4234E (Watch)
I chose this watch primarily for the size of the display. I'm long sighted and trying to read a watch whilst running has been a problem. I can see this readout all the time, even the smaller seconds digits. It's even readable in the dark with the indiglo on. However, it has very basic functionality as a runners watch. Stopwatch, instant split, single shot countdown with one alarm, is about it. I'll probably go for something more expensive next time, but for the time being, this fits the bill nicely.

2.0 out of 5 stars NOT REALLY A RUNNER'S WATCH, 20 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Timex Sport Marathon Fullsize Quartz Watch with LCD Dial Digital Display and Black Resin Strap T5K4234E (Watch)
I couldn't believe how inadequate this watch is after having been persuaded to buy it by the 5 star reviews.

Quite simply, the biggest drawback with this watch is that in stopwatch mode you get a reading of minutes and seconds up
until 30 mins, and then after that point you only get minutes. 'Marathon' is definitely a misnomer.

The face is mega big, a positive point, and so is the body case making it look more
like a clunky fashion accessory rather than a sleek sports tool.

Wouldn't recommend it to a serious minded runner.
