4.0 out of 5 stars does what it says, and well., 5 May 2012

This review is from: Timex Expedition Fullsize Digital Watch with LCD Dial Digital Display and Black Resin Strap T49851SU (Watch)
I spent many hours looking for a watch with multiple vibrating alarms that didn't cost the earth, and didn't look like some big ugly cooking timer, which seemed to be the alternative.

Since the other major digital watch manufacturer can't seem to tell you which of their watches have this feature very reliably on their website, I went with this Timex for which the spec was clear.

This watch does the job perfectly. It has 3 alarms, all of which vibrate for 10 seconds, followed by an audible alarm for 20. If you don't switch it off, it does it again 5 minutes later- perfect if you managed to miss it, although the vibration is pretty firm so you're unlikely to (unless you wear your watches loose).

It also has 3 time zones, hydration timer (it vibrates at intervals to drink during a workout), "occasion reminder" (you can put in birthdays and anniverseries etc) stopwatch, countdown etc. All these features you can "hide" if you won't use them.

"indiglo" light is nice too. The compass points round the edge are a nice touch, but superfluous-this watch doesn't have any kind of navigation tools on it.

This only misses out on 5 stars because the design could be a little more attractive, and it has only 3 alarms, where others have 5. Good price for the functionality though.

Hello, can you input your own text for occasion reminders? Or do you have to use the one ones given by the watch, such as BDAY and ANIV. I could not find the answer in the online manual.
Hope you can help.
