    Very nice watch.

  • I just like the latest watches out there. This one is a great one and looks great too. Lots of bells and whistles to play with. I found it easy to calibrate and set. Works good for my urban adventures mostly in the city. Band fits well and comfortable. The night light is a good feature also. The only minus I have for it is the hands are hard to see in the daytime. Other than that for you watch geeks out there this is a good one to add to your collection.

    hands hard to read in daylight


    Timex has always made great time pieces for many years and they have a fantastic selection for everyone.

    only two drawbacks

  • The watch is a great watch for anyone liking gadgets and also with a need for adventure. Works well but it has no glow in the dark hands. Indiglo works okay but the face is dark so it's kind of hard to see unless your eyes have adjusted to the darkness. Also the hands are hard to see in the daytime but not a bad thing. Just angle it to the light so the silver shows the position of the hands. Hi vis orange hands would also be a plus. Timex makes great watches.

    Good watch, wrist band sucks

  • The watch itself has been very good and can stand up to normal abuse in an adventure environment. The waterproofness, scratch resistance of the face, ruggedness of the buttons and dial, battery life (and, of course, the ability to keep accurate time) have all been top notch. However, the band is total garbage and not made to withstand any kind of active lifestyle. I got the watch for Christmas 2013 and have had the pins on the band break 7 times until I have just given up on repairing it. I'm not sure why they would put such a weak wrist band on an 'adventure series' watch.
    The altimeter feature is pretty cool, although not really realistic unless you are dealing with substantial elevation changes (like 10,000' - 60,000' in increments of 10k), so unless you are climbing Mount Everest or skydiving, it isn't likely to be of much practical use (and the watch band would never survive trips like that anyway). However, I don't fault Timex for that as they never made any claims about how precise the altimeter is, and it would be almost impossible to easily display elevations in 100' increments on a small watch face anyway. It won't replace the barometer altimeter on a GPS if you really need to know your current altitude. So, don't get it with the idea of getting much practical use out of the altimeter, but just know it is kind of a cool, yet impractical, feature/gadget. I still think it is neat even though I don't really use it.
    I would have given this watch a 2-star review due to the worthlessness of the band, but I do like the way it looks and the watch portion itself is as advertised, so I'll go to 3-stars.
