Review Summary

This is the summary of consumer reviews for Timex Men's T5E231 Ironman Traditional 100-Lap Watch. The BoolPool rating for this product is Very Good, with 4.30 stars, and the price range is $44-$50.

The Timex T5E231 Men's Ironman 100-Lap Watch is a perfect training tool that provides lap or split options for accurate and convenient timing for athletes. It is aesthetically pleasing with the combination of black, silver/steel and some yellow that fits well around the wrist. The lens is of mineral crystal and the top ring is of stainless steel and black resin. It features a sensitive FLIX hands free Indiglo system to enable reading exercise data in the dark by evenly illuminating the display. It offers a 100-Hour Chronograph with Lap and Split Times, 99-Lap Counter along with 100-Hour Countdown Timer with Stop and Repeat, allowing you to log and analyze your exercise activity. The training log stores workouts by date, with best lap, average lap and total segment.

This durable lap watch has dual times zone, interval timers, and water resistance to 330 feet (100 M). Many of the buttons such as resetting the chronograph or clearing workout data require being held down for several seconds so you don't trigger them accidentally. The alarms with multiple settings are provided for weekdays, weekends, and other customized periods. It also has forward and backward setting, reminders, and automatic repetition counter.

A few users complain that wrist band on this watch tends to crack and break after a year or so. Also the buttons on this watch can be a little sensitive for some athletes.

Overall, Timex T5E231 100-Lap Strap Watch is an affordable, comfortable and durable stopwatch. It is multi-functional with the ability to store workouts be it the splits or the races. It is a very well designed intuitive stopwatch with nice placement of buttons, small lettering, and highly legible display.
