Good watch but the Indiglo Night Light is to easy to hit when you bend your wrist so the light is killing the battery.
I've had my watch since Christmas (Received as a gift) and in three months I killed the battery.The watch was purchased on 12/10/08, gifted on 12/25/08 and on 3/11/09 the battery died.
I've tried to wear the watch different ways and it doesn't matter the button is just to sensitive and easy to hit. I've even tried to wear the watch on my off hand and it still doesn't matter..comfortable, easy to read, stylish, Value, Worn all the timeBattery life, light turns on every time i bend my wristThe Indiglo night light turns on every time I bend my wrist.
The button is to sensitive and easy to hit. It needs to be put on a separate button that is on an angle and made less sensitive so you wont turn it on every time you bend your wrist.
I really do like the watch for all the other qualities but for reasons stated I would not recommend it to anyone else and in fact am probably going to exchange mine for a different kind of watch.
I think I've tried every thing as a consumer I can do and the watch is just poorly designed.
Sorry if I have offended anyone that is not my intent, I am just dissatisfied.
This watch died after just barely over a year but it has to be a fluke. I've owned other Timex's that lasted for years and I finally replaced them because they were so beat up (but still ran). I've got a Timex that's 8 years old and so beat up I only wear it for yard and auto work.
I love the style and comfort of this one and it stays in perfect time. I set it by Naval Observatory clock and it only looses 5 seconds over 4 months so YES, I bought another one..Battery life, comfortable, easy to read, Performance, reliable, stylish, Value, Worn all the timeTimex has proven itself to me over the years. It's the only brand I consider even after the short life of the last one. That was just one.
one of the most reliable watches,althought it has undergone intense diving, hiking and a lot of shocks it is still in neat condition and very accurate.comfortable, easy to read, reliable, Rugged, Valueit's damn rugged and lasts a lifetime:)
This is my second Timex Indiglo Expedition watch and I like it as much as the first. It is a great all-purpose watch...not too dressy, not too casual and very comfortable to wear all day. Of course it keeps great time and the Indiglo backlight works great in low-light situations. I would definitely buy another one!.Rugged, stylish, Performance, comfortable, Worn all the time, Battery life, easy to read, Value, reliableBecause of my past experience with Timex watches.
What a great watch. The styling is spot on, not to mention the rugged toughness we've come to expect from Timex.I wear it every day. I do have one issue. The indiglo funtion stoped working a couple months after I purchased it. I'm cofident Timex will make every effort to correct this issue expeditously..comfortable, easy to read, reliable, stylish, Value, Worn all the timeindiglo brokenThe indiglo or light function broke within a couple of months, otherwise i love this watch.I wear it every day.
Great looking watch but leather band wears out too fast. Can't find replacement for band..Battery life, easy to read, Performance, reliable, Rugged, Worn all the timeleather band wears out too fast trouble findingReliable and economic.
I bought this watch as a prize to be given. I put it on and liked the comfortable thick band so much I kept it and got another one for the prize. Crystal is recessed and protected by the bezel. Leather band is thick, comfortable and durable. Give it a couple of days to form to your wrist. I have had zero problems with any area of this watch. The hands glow brightly in the dark and the Indiglo is perfect. I don't know why some reviewers have said it comes on when they bend their wrist. The button has a gaurd around it. If you want an inexpensive, reliable , and rugged looking watch--this is it. I have worn it for 3 years and the battery is still just fine..Battery life, comfortable, easy to read, Performance, reliable, Rugged, stylish, Value, Worn all the time, value packed everyday watch, it will take a beating.This watch is comfortable,reliable,very easy to read, durable, and if it is lost or stolen, you don't have to cry. I have some expensive watches. They don't tell time any better than this one. If you use a watch to tell time , day or night, and can use it under most any everyday working or playing circumstance --then get this one.
