The Timex Men's T49851 Expedition Rugged Digital Vibration Alarm Watch is a great buy! The different modes the watch has plus the display with the illumination is beautiful. If you want a simple digital watch with a clean look and scratchproof material...this your best buy!
Many reviewers say its Big and chunky, but after wearing a Dive/Freedive computer as a daily watch for 10 years, this is decidedly small and somewhat chunky but only on the watch bezel and pusher guards, the strap is quite slender, perhaps for lightweight comfort; feels a bit dainty actually, and sits higher off the wrist than even some dive computers, the height is really only because of the beefed up bezel guard. So my view comes from much larger watch bodies that did more for specific purposes other than just telling time and timing events...For what this watch is; it occupies a convenient and useful niche (The cheap rugged watch that works and is unpretentious about that). You almost expect to see deep scratches on a watch like this over time. I bought this one with a Gift card at Kirkhams for 52.00US, but I really needed a watch in the short term, while I shop for something special, otherwise I could have saved 20 bucks from Overstock...I really like the negative digital display, because it is different than the other cheap looking digital watches...One thing Timex does well is essentially sell the same rugged watch with a myriad different looks to appeal to different tastes with similar needs...its relatively cheap and everyone knows it, but its also rugged and purposeful, and everyone who knows the Ironman Series knows it. 6 years of rough use seems acceptable to me for what it cost and I might coax 10 from it.. I would recommend to anyone to buy it as a beater and save more expensive timepieces for more pedestrian use...It has a countdown timer that can be set to repeat, where you just cancel the alarm but it keeps timing the same interval to the next alarm (Really handy), which is nice for repetitive task tracking...Start punching buttons and you can figure out how to set the watch faster than using the Instructions as the Recall button shows "Hold To Set" on the screen, then you toggle with mode, and add numerals increasing with Start/Split, and decreasing with the Indiglo button, when done hit Recall and go back to the Home Time screen. the Occasion reminders is something new top me, and I have yet to set reminders, but am looking forward to using it! I like when I am wearing a dark long sleeve because it sort of blends in and becomes unobtrusive and unnoticed.
the timex men's t49947 expedition digital cat green nylon/leather strap watch is a digital classic . other digital watch brands -- including gshock -- are tough and long lasting but they are also expensive , too large , and have way too many features that i would never use . the timex t49947 is easy to read , comfortably small , simple to set and has only the features that i need . the indiglo works great in dark rooms . the size of the numbers and letters are clear and readable . there is a setup for another timezone , a countdown timer , a lap timer ( chronograph ) and three different alarms . this watch is legible and does not waste space on the phase of the moon the time in thailand or high tide in maine . there are no rediculous complications and no automatic connections to atomic auto setting transmissions . the timex t49947 is simple and uncomplicated . the band is really comfortable . it is made out of dark green nylon with leather accents . the case is resin with an acrylic window . i have to be careful not to scratch the face . the watch is not as tough as a gshock or pricey steel diver . timex claims the t49947 is water resistant down to 350 feet but i doubt that and would never get this watch wet or swim with it on my wrist . that is just asking for trouble with any watch . the timex t49947 only costs $32 usd and has all the functions i will ever use .
I owned a Timex Expedition watch over 15 years ago so knew of its top quality. This is a great watch especially for anyone who has a rough hand with anything they own. Very reliable, rugged and handsome watch!
