I've bought numerous watches over the years, and could never find one that fit my needs exactly: that one didn't have a digital watch-face, this one's band was too thick, and another one's watch-face was just too big. I would buy another watch in about 2-3 months because I wasn't able to find something that consistently worked for me AND fit my price range.This was about the 5th or 6th time I was buying a watch in a year, and I was more than ready to be done with watch-shopping. So, hearing good things about Timex from several friends, I decided to give yet another watch (this time a more trusted brand) a chance. And boy, am I glad I did.I have been SO impressed by this Marathon. The watch band is neither too small or big, and the watch face is small enough that it doesn't dig into my arm if I bend my wrist.I've almost never taken the watch off in the time since I bought it, and it's none the worse for wear. It's come with me multiple times in the shower, a pool, and even a lake, perfectly keeping time after each. The battery has never stopped or malfunctioned either, something I've experienced with countless other digital watches.One important thing to note: The owner's manual (which can be found here: http://assets.timex.com/manual/W-292.pdf ) says you should NOT press any of the timer/set-up/indiglo buttons while in water. Because I followed this advice, my watch has continued to work after being underwater. Use common sense!I also love the alarm and glow-in-the-dark features. What better way to wake up than hear a friendly traditional beeping noise and shove your glowing watch in your face to make sure you haven't lost your job because of tardiness? :D All jokes aside, the alarm noise is perfect if you need something loud to rouse a deep sleeper. Yes, it's harsher than something you would find on a smartphone, but it works! And the glow-in-the-dark face is super handy.In conclusion? There's a reason Timex is a trusted brand. If you're in the market for a new digital watch, look no further. You've found it!- - -If my review has helped you, please click the helpful button.
