Being a regular runner and competing athlete I bought this watch as the large display and tap screen were features that had great appeal. Functionally the watch provides all the stopwatch, timer and interval features I required as well as the usual time and date functions one would use.

I cannot fault the watch functions and the display size is great, also I had no issues with the tap screen function.

Where this watch is a disappointment is the band quality, my band has been deteriorating after about 12 months and now after 16 months the band is actually breaking up. I contacted timex and I was told the band is only covered for 12 months, and it would be a substantial cost to replace the band which is part of the watch face and only timex can replace it.

The other disappointment with this watch, is the design of the waterproof seal as a change of battery seems to be a stumbling block. Every watch battery change place I've contacted who advertise they can maintain a watch's waterproof state have informed me they can only change the battery on this model but not maintain its waterproof state.

Further to that timex have no service centre or timex approved agent within my state (Victoria, Australia) thus to have the battery changed by timex or an endorsed agent would require it to be posted overseas or interstate which means more outlay on a fairly expensive sports watch.

It seems I would have been better of sticking with a cheap unknown brand training stopwatch which I already have and which is still running even though a couple of years older than the timex and its synthetic band is still in great shape.

I don't think I will buying a timex watch again.

I've been using Timex Ironman watches for years now - as a runner, the features and ergonomics are just right. Call me old-fashioned but I don't care much for GPS / speed distance / HRM's - I believe you should build up your own intuition about pace, feeling etc on a run. And the Ironman watches help you do this, with intuitive buttons, big screen, and consistent interface.

This watch has the same great features as above, and the multi-lap countdown timer is great for planning interval training. The watch is also sturdy and looks good.

However, I feel that Timex have taken an innovation step too far - they probably felt the need to market something new to generate sales. But the new features aren't great. The tap screen is ok, even fun to use. However, I found I had to set it to the 'hard tap' setting otherwise it would 'tap' when running into a headwind, or swimming (water pressure on the watch). It's a good feature, but I'd prefer the positive action of a button, which I feel there was no reason to get rid of - it was large, ergonomically sited, and couldn't be pressed by accident.

A few other backward steps, the memory recall system has been messed around with - when viewing the history you can only go back in time - so if you pass by a workout then you have to cycle through the whole lot (which could be quite a lot because of the default to save each workout). The strap is good, but the retainer does have a tendency to pop out - and as another review said, this is NOT a women's watch - I am a bloke with relatively small wrists and the watch is big on me.

Timex have introduced some other features that will only appeal to Ironman participants - feed counters / alarms - probably quite a welcome thing, but I'm principally a runner and swimmer.

This watch is Brilliant ! It has the best visible screen I have ever seen, can even catch glimpses of my lap times during the catch phase of the swim so I can see relatively whether im keeping good pace without stopping, a tap per lap is easy once u get the motion and a beep signifies youve hit it correctly, The three settings for screen tap sensitivity give you variety for the varying weather and activity conditions. So, if your out on a run and its calm, keep it 'light', if its windy or your cycling at speed, set to 'medium', If swimming your cutting into the water so set to 'hard' - Simple but if u cant be bothered then leave it hard or improve your stroke, your choice. Its works a treat and just slapping two fingers over the watch means I get a result almost effortlessly, theres a knack but once you have it down, there is no stopping you (even underwater!). What this watch best allows you to do is train at many intervals (16 in total - so 9 selected time/pace intervals between general pace - labelled warm up/cool/fast/slow/med). It has the 150 lap clocking and allows you to save your workouts so your progression is monitored as you build up, you can track pace, specific time goals and it factors in hydration and nutrition alarms so if your out there on a gruelling workout, you can relax knowing that your pre-planning with the watch functions will ensure that you are working optimally. The target pace timer is great for pushing yourself and overseeing your goals over laps/distance with varying beeps for faster/slower and on target pace, It even has Indiglo options to allow you to run during those dark winter evenings - Hardcore eh!Read more ›
