I bought this watch for my boyfriend for our 2 year anniversary and he loves it. It has a very clear screen with great back light. Its compass hasn't been used much but it has been tested and is very accurate. I had been finding it difficult to find a watch similar to his last one which he loved but this one was ideal. It has the attractive leather strap but is also digital with the hourly buzz option. He formatted it was ease. The only negative comment I would have at this point is that the strap is a little thin for the size of the face.

This watch runs really well and has very clear, large, figures on the "dial". I use the timer a lot for timed croquet matches that I play in. The explanations for the buttons on the rim of the "dial" are rather small and difficult to read, but once you get to know it there is no real problem. The compass is a bit of a novelty, but useful for working out the orientation of houses.

I know this is my second review but I have had the watch for several months now and about two months ago the strap started to wear through because it was leather with a black fabric strip running down the middle. I sent it back to Watch shop and I am very pleased with the service I received. I sent it back and the next day they had received it and looked at it. I could not get a replacement watch or a refund but they did send it back to Timex to have the strap replaced and now I have it back with an improved strap. It is now just leather without the fabric that wore through so it looks as though it will last for years to come. The watch itself is absolutely perfect. The compass has been calibrated once and still works very well compared with my orienteering compass. The compass itself is easy to access and easy to operate but you do have to hold it quite level, like an analogue compass,but it is not difficult with the inbuilt spirit level. A nice function that a lot of other compass watches don't have is a rotating bezel for the compass. You can rotate it anti clockwise or clockwise to remind you which bearing you are taking without having to start up the compass again. The light is a pleasant colour and lights up the display well in low light. It has a night mode which is activated by holding down the light button and this means that the backlight goes on whenever you press any button instead of just the light button. I have been swimming with it in the pool and in the sea and it has stayed very much water proof and all of the body of the watch has retained its colour. One final feature I am going to talk about is the customizability if it makes sense. You can customize the 'Menu' by choosing which option ie. Compass, Hydro Alarm, Timer, appear in the menu, so if there is a particular one that you don't need, you can hide it so you don't have to cycle trough unnecessary options. Also you can set whether you hear a beep whenever you press a button which is useful; and the watch will chime on the hour if you want it to. I would highly recommend Timex watches to anybody as they are built well and look great. I would also recommend Watch Shop UK because of their swift and helpful service. Thanks for reading and I hope this review helps.

I am very pleased with this watch. Speedy delivery as well. The compass is very precise and I use it for walking and boating ect. To calibrate the compass is easy; just turn the watch twice. It isn't too big and is remarkably light for its size. Before I bought it I didn't know what a hydration alarm is which this watch has; it turns out that it is a count down timer. One feature that isn't in the description is that it is possible to set alarms for weeks and months in the future to remind you about 'Occasions'. I would definitely recommend this watch for anyone who wants a sturdy watch for walking, sailing or just an everyday watch.
