Band comfort - this watch is very comfortable to wear in a variety of conditions. It never got cumbersome after hours of wear. If you want something more substantial than the fitted rubber, you might check out Timex's variety of replacement bands here: Timex Men's Q7B799 Resin Ironman Triathlon 30 Lap 16mm Replacement Watchband.
Display - Very easy to read.
Buttons - Big and easy to locate.
Durability of face, bezel - In this watch I actually wanted cheaper. I didn't want to always worry if I scratched this or that part. But it's been no worry as both the face and bezel have shown no scratches. All the text is an inlaid inscription, so it won't rub off.
Indiglo - Works great at night. This iteration of watches illuminates the digits themselves, as opposed to the entire background, which can be gentler on the eyes at night.
Battery life - Amazingly I've had this watch for four years and it shows no signs of slowing up. Much like my last Ironman did.
intuitiveness of use - this is the only part of the watch that I found as needs improvement. I'm not a big manual reader, so maybe it's my fault, but I like to jump in to a product, and I still haven't figured out what things are for. When you press the Start button, it changes the second-hand sweeper to the words T2 and T3 for a few seconds, before going back to the time. Holding Start changes this to T1 and T3 - I don't know what this is for the life of me. Secondly, pressing start among different cycles of the chronogram doesn't restart the timer, but displays different multiples of the same lap time. I don't know what good that is. "Occasion" mode asks for a month and date, but I don't know what the purpose of it is. It doesn't currently beep to remind me of anything?
Overall, the pros far outweigh the cons. If you just need a simple watch that's durable, keeps your time and maybe the occasional jogging mile time, this is money well spent.
I own a G-Shock 200m watch and have had great results with it. The big difference, though, is bulk. For medium-sized guys like me, the greater water resistance Casios are simply too heavy and bulky for my admittedly smaller wrist. And since I don't plan on joining the Navy Seals anytime soon (I'm 54) 100 meters is about enough for swimming and snorkeling.
Operation is easy, one of the hallmarks of the Ironman. I particularly liked the new ability to easily "hide" unwanted functions (in my case, "occasions" and two of the three alarms). Plus, the display is larger than earlier generations, which is a godsend for my age-deteriorated vision. The new Indiglo operation (illumination of the numerals only, not the whole face) probably will result in a longer battery life as well.
My favorite aspect of this watch (as with other Ironmans (Ironmen?;) is the weight. These are rugged watches that are as lightweight as a dress watch, which comes in handy when running, cycling, swimming, etc. I'm looking forward to putting this watch through its paces. As always, Amazon's customer service was quick and efficient, too!
It is easy to use, and the light is bright enough to use as a flashlight in a pinch.
This watch is easy to wear. It sits well on the wrist. I forget that I have it on.
The alarm is easy to set and turn off, and loud enough to wake you up, without being annoying.
The description for this item is really messed up. It not only mentions Flix but also contains a section for Casio watches (which this isn't). I'd report it but I don't see a way to change/report anything but the short description.
