-Sleek design: the digital display can be turned off, and the metal band is aesthetically pleasing as well as easy to clean.
-Solid build: the watch is a nice and heavy (but not too heavy!) weight, and I haven't experienced any problems with any parts breaking.
-Unisex: the watch is advertised as a men's watch but it is also appropriate for women who like their watches nice and legible. As a smaller woman, I was able to adjust the number of links on the band to have it fit my wrist perfectly. The watch face is large on my wrist, but not comedically so; I have gotten compliments on it by my friends.
-Talking piece: Yes, it is the watch featured in the movie Stranger than Fiction, though without magical qualities. The analog and digital components also do not sync, and the light feature was improved for the film.
-The design is not perfect: flaws include the fact that one must hold down the indiglo (light) button to set the alarm, meaning that the battery will always be drained a little extra each time you set it.
-Quiet alarm: it's too soft, so don't expect it to use it as a wake up alarm or anything like that!
-Syncing: the analog and digital parts are not synced, and you have to set them separately. This also means that over time, the analog and the digital components will tell you slightly different times... the analog one, I believe, starts lagging about a minute after 3-4 months. It then has to be manually adjusted.Read more ›
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
* You can use this as a dress watch, it's very stylish.
* The quality of the band seems very good, at least it seems like this is really stainless.
* Comes with indiglo light, 2 alarms, 2-time mode and the standard ironman features: chronograph, timer, etc.
(I hope Timex reads this feedback)
* I wish it had a 5-minute snooze backup alarm which I had on my prior Timexs.
* I used to have a 25th Anniversary Triathlon and I loved the weekday alarm, instead this watch comes with an alarm that you can set for a specific date, I don't anticipate using this feature ever.
* It doesn't have a night mode, usually if you hold the indiglo light it would switch to a mode which doesn't require you to hold the indiglo button to keep the light on.
* The set button is the same as the Indiglo light button. I found this makes setting the alarm extremely difficult while in the dark.
This is a nice and stylish watch that you can wear pretty much anywhere. The price comes at a very modest ~$60 line, which is a great value and a nice failsafe gift for those in need.
Backlight, Lap timer, chronograph and alarm along with the regular watch mode which displays time, date, and day of the week.
backlight seems to favor power saving with a very unimpressive but functional light. You can read the time, but don't expect anything flashy.
Alarm is utterly USELESS. Only a faint repetitive beeping noise that goes on for about 15 beats. Completely inaudible on a crowded street and useless for waking you up.
Watch is HEAVY. For those that like a sturdy feel, this is good, but don't expect to forget you're wearing this watch. On the bright side, my left arm needs a little more workout than my right.
Disappointments related to the movie -
The watch looks the same from the outside, but feature-wise is very different and I'm not talking about it's life saving capabilities (though it may be sturdy enough to stop a bullet)
If you notice in the movie, the backlight is BLUE and the watch shines the backlight while beeping to awake Crick. This feature doesn't exist.
Biggest dissappointment for me was that the analog and digital watch AREN'T CONNECTED like in the movie. That cool scene where Howard was fixing his time with just the analog dial - not happening. You have to set each one manually, and for some reason they don't like to stay exactly in sync.
Judging by price and style alone, you should be adding this watch to your cart now! Just don't expect any revolutionary features and you'll be a happy camper. Personally, I would pay a bit more just to get a more exact representation of the watch in the movie, but overall I'm happy with the quality of the watch I have.
The most important thing would be synchronized digital and analog systems. Right now the differences between the two are stark. After painstakingly synching them you can see as - right before your eyes - they quickly go out of sync. And I'm not talking about hours or days. You can see it happening in just one minute. Also the Indiglo is probably the worst I've ever seen. It's dim and will only stay on for TWO SECONDS.
And, I have to ask, why did Timex design the hands of the watch so they block the digital readout? It's not hard to come up with a better design. Also the picture of the watch is not what it looks like. The watch face is grey, not white. I'm uploading a "customer image" so you can all see what it really looks like.
All in all it's a handsome analog watch with a overly complicated and slightly annoying digital system. Mostly, though, this watch has a ocean of wasted potential. And, really, is there anything more irritating than wasted potential?
This watch has a nice dual purpose usage where it's for the active people that uses lap and countdown timer. Only down point I found with this watch is that the countdown timer is a bit trickier to use since it uses what they call 'Loop', Loop 1 is Count Up, Loop 2 is Count Down, Loop 3 is countdown repeat. I preferred their other countdown version where it just says CR, CU, CD, a bit more intuative than remembering what Loop 1,2,3 does.
The watch is a bit heavier than I though it would be, but it does feel solid and the Stainless steel band has a nice lock to it, though I already have scratches on it.
The Indiglo DOES have a night feature, you just have to hold the Indiglo button til it says Hold to activate it.
Another nice feature is that you can turn off the digital face and just have the Analog time for the classy look, though the only way I found that I can do this was to use the "recall' function, but it leaves you 4 dashes in the lower background.
My only real problem with this Timex is the Alarm/Chime is very low compare to my previous Ironman watches, so it's a problem when your using say the countdown repeat in the gym or in a city setting.
I'll see how long this one will last me, yes I'm very rough on my watches, you should see the abuse my wrist and hands get and I'm not even in construction.
