Timex Company Background

During World War I, the US Army asked Timex to re-tool the Yankee pocket watch into a convenient new "wristwatch" for soldiers. In 1933, Timex produced the very first Mickey Mouse Clocks and watches, under an exclusive license from Walt Disney. Within just a few years, the company sold two million of these watches. In the 1950s came the introduction of the world's first inexpensive but reliable watch. Torture-test advertising campaigns promoted Timex watches with the tag-line: "It takes a licking and keeps on ticking."

Ever since watches moved from the pocket to the wrist, Timex has defined how the world tells time. For over 150 years, Timex has provided affordable technology in distinctive designs. For Timex, time began in 1854. Over the many years that followed, through wartime and peacetime, Timex watches have kept more than time, they've kept a promise of undaunted innovation.

Brand History

  • In 1986 Timex introduced the "Ironman Triathlon watch" that revolutionised sports timing with features and durability that were an instant hit with the dedicated athletes that inspired it. One of the most important ever introductions by Timex watches is the Indiglo backlight system. Invented by Timex in 1992, the Indiglo lamp uniformly lights the watch dial with a blue backlight, using Timex's electroluminescent technology.

  • Modern Day: Timex remains one of the few watchmakers in the world to manufacture all of their own movements. Timex Originals: paying homage to over 150 years of Timex heritage, the Timex Originals collection is inspired by vintage designs through-out the decades, brought up-to-date with a modern twist. Timex is proud to be the official timing sponsor of some of the greatest marathons in the world - New York, London and Berlin.

  • In 2011, Timex introduced the Timex Intelligence Quartz collection. Based on technology that is an open-ended platform with the flexibility to incorporate new technologies, new functions and new ideas as they become available, Intelligence Quartz is a design and technology platform targeted primarily to the male consumer seeking a sophisticated yet technology driven timepiece.

Why are so many digital watches full of utter rubbish that just makes them harder to use for the simple task of clearly seeing the date and time - also at night?

This watch is great:
- you can turn off the beep
- you can disable functions you don't need. So if you accidentally press the "mode" button, you don't need to cycle through 14 different time zones, lap timers, etc etc just to get back to see the time and date
- the display is not overly cluttered with text saying e.g. "200M water resistant"
- its not 50mm in diameter and clunky
- the buttons are low-relief so they don't get pressed by accident
- Indiglo backlight is excellent

Only minus is the ugly "Iron Man Triathlon" logo which takes up display area and actually can cast a shadow over the bit you want to read. So only 4 stars...

I bought this for use in the Army as it is lightweight, waterproof and long lasting, with a light and stopwatch facilities - would reccomend this to anyone who wants a watch for an active lifestyle that will survive more than a few knocks!

I prefer digital watches and have used them for the past 25 years. Many have a large face and seem bulky when worn.
The Timex Sport Ironman Midsixe Triathlon is clear and very readable while feeling compact when worn.
I enjoy the date and day display to complement the time display. This informatiopn is always helpful when completing forms or other documents.. The watch is claimed to be water proof to 100 m a level of sealing to ensure vapour perspiration and other liquids are excluded from the timepiece.

Great watch for timing splits etc. I didn't find it easy to set it up -which could be me but instructions pretty useless but someone less technically challenged was able to help and now it seems easy enough to use though I'm not sure I am using all the features yet. Size is good if you have small wrists as not too large. Recommend it if you want a well-priced functional watch for running.

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.

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.

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).
