I'm a long-time user of Timex's and was hoping that this wrist band would last longer than the typical IronMan, with it's traditional 12-month (or less) life expectancy.
Based on the photos, I was expecting the wristband to be gray.
Instead, it's tan/off-white.
Surprisingly, I've gotten unsolicited, positive comments on its appearance.
I never cared for the color- it doesn't look like what I'd expect based on the photo.
Two other issues:
You REALLY have to push HARD on the buttons to set/adjust/stop the various functions which is a bit of a hassle.
Also, the wristband has now discolored like a piece of cheap jewelry to a bluish-tinged appearance.
I've ignored this because most often it's hidden under my sleeve.
Bottom line: While this wristband should outlast other models, it's not the most attractive of the bunch.
UPDATE: Like the others, my clasp broke today... no "incident," the catch is simply gone.
Watch lasted 12 months, 2 weeks.
This is normal for Timex's. I'm wondering when they'll offer a "Timex prime" plan where you pay them $10/month and just throw your watch away every year.
Also, the asking price on this thing is nearly $60 higher than when I bought it.
That would have lowered my rating to 1 star... and I would NOT have accepted this watch for a nearly $100 asking price.
