Works well, but somewhat expensive,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Timex Sport Ironman Fullsize Triathlon 30 Lap Watch - T5E901 (Watch)
I've used Ironman watches for years, but I needed a replacement when my last one expired (in a swimming pool, annoyingly). This new model is similar to its predecessor but fixes the annoying problem that my wrist or the back of my hand would sometimes push the buttons, for example while cycling. It's also easier to read, though I keep thinking the annoying Ironman brand on the watch face is a squashed bug or something else stuck to it. (I wish the logo were on the same plane as the numbers so my eyes wouldn't have to shift focus from the distracting logo, but there are other things in life I worry about more.)
The user interface is reasonable for what the watch does. Another improvement over earlier Ironmans is the display of + and - next to the appropriate buttons for increasing or decreasing the display numbers.
The watch band is secure and comfortable. My only objection is that the proprietary band attachment mechanism no doubt means when the band breaks, I suspect have to pay half the cost of the entire watch for some replacement. My biggest gripe is the price. The watch is fine but not bursting with innovation, so don't be afraid to spring for last year's model instead if you can find it for less.
