To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Not quite up to the quality I was expecting for the money, the writing is very small but my daughter seems to be able to read it OK, BUT not as described THERE IS NO BACKLIGHT ON THIS MODEL. We haven't tried to see if it's waterproof yet.
UPDATE - After a few more weeks usage I have decided to downgrade this item to 1 star. As other people have stated this watch does not keep the right time, I have to set it every week. Also the strap is rubbish, it keeps becoming slack, why they couldn't use a Velcro strap I will never know. I would have expected a watch of this low quality if I'd bought it from a market stall, but not from Timex.
This was a Christmas gift for my daughter who is learning to read time. It arrived in a good package. The pictures look great than the actual watch itself. The quality of the watch dial is ok. It doesn’t feel like a Timex quality watch. It has a stretchable band which is easy to wear, tighten and remove. This watch doesn’t have a backlight, which is a shame so there is no way you can see the time in the dark. It is not water resistant either. Would not recommend. But my daughter loved this watch. Timex needs to improve their quality!
This was a gift for my granddaughter, so the packaging wasn't opened untill she received it. I was very disapointed by the quality. The watch face is plastic and slightly raised so that's going to catch and break easily. The numbers are also very small, the secondary teaching numbers are tiny and barely readable. I can't return as, I missed the return window. Suffice to say she hasn't even bothered to wear it.
I've been tricked to buy this piece of plastic by false specifications on Amazon, stating it has back-light but it doesn't. Description says it has elastic fabric strap but its not elastic enough for my little girl. Water resistance "30m" has nothing to do with diving at 30 metres (just another lie) and for kids something like this means it'll last to next rainy day. I can't return this watch since my 4yr put her hands on it but I'd really love to. It is sad how well known, trustworthy brand turned cheapo. Had some sentiment about Timex. It's simply disappointment.
I had this watch as a child, pretty hardwearing elasticated wristband and easy to read, it survived until my early 20's when I popped it in a drawer for a more grown-up style.
My daughter is 6 and learning to tell the time, so out to look for a watch to buy her and see this is still on the market, almost 25y after I owned my first one. She loves it as much as I did, the easy to read numbers, sections ands hands make learning so much easier.
She's not a delicate butterfly and this has been to play spaces, woodland adventures and parks and still looks good. Hope it lasts as long as mine did!
Purchased for my granddaughter who liked it very much. It looks fine, like the way the colours show "past the hour and to the hour" I did purchase it as I thought it was a British made item and would be fine for servicing and new batteries etc. When it arrived it was in a made in china plastic tube. Arrived quickly and not a bad price but there were a lot cheaper ones
This was a present for my 4 yr old grand daughter, approaching her 5th Birthday. I haven't seen it other than on Zoom, but she is totally thrilled with it! She feels very grown up. It is durable, eye-catching, yet not too whacky. Great value for money, a good first time-telling tool. It's Timex, just like mine was! Highly recommended!
This watch was ordered on Sunday afternoon, and delivered the next morning. It was exactly as described, and was working. I cannot say how long the battery will last, as I don’t know when it was inserted into the watch; I am just hoping it is still going on Christmas Day when my grandaughter opens her presents. The layout of the watch face is very clear. I particularly like the indication on the left hand side saying “TO” and on the right side saying “PAST”.
First thing I needed to do was change the battery as the one installed was deader than a-liner flares. The picture makes it look a real bargain but the real product is tiny and very hard to read. Not sure how kids are supposed to learn the time on this. The strap was damaged had a pull in it, I had the feeling it was a previously returned product.
