I’m a teacher and was so pleased to find a watch for my son that had a really clear face including both the numbers of hours and the minutes. A lot of the kids watches these days count up to 30 minutes / half past, then the minutes start counting back down to 0. At an early stage I think it’s better that the children can see the actual number past the hour so they properly understand the length of the hour and make a link to a digital time E.g. 2:48…rather than confusing them with 12 minutes to 3. The watch strap is easy to adjust and comfortable. The watch seems pretty robust. My son hasn’t worn it in the bath or pool so can’t tell you if it would stand up to a long immersion. My son really likes the second hand which is a helicopter that rotates around screen. Great first watch.
MY granddaughter asked for a watch for her birthday and as she's only 4 thought this would do the trick. She's delighted with it. It's very cute with a tiny panda second hand. I would say the face is smaller than I would have liked as probably will be quite difficult to see the numbers clearly. Anyway she's pleased and that's what matters.
This watch is a gift for my grandson’s 7th birthday. My very first watch was a Timex so I automatically chose a Timex for him. It has a clear face and the Geckos on the strap are great. It is suitable for a child, but not gimmicky. I cannot say at the moment if the watch will keep good time or if it is water resistant, as he will not receive it until 13th September. If looks are anything to go by.....it’s a winner.
This was for my grandson's 5th birthday. From the moment he saw it the watch did not come off his arm until he went into the bath then back on again. He was asking about the time his friends would be round to his party so took an instant interest in TIME and would continually refer to it through out the days following. So yes it was a winner. It has got a few scratches on the glass now but considering his age and the use he gives it, I'm more than happy with its durability.
I bought this for my grandson's 4th birthday as he is taking an interest in telling the time. He was delighted with it. The strap is nice and soft and easily adjustable, and it's water resistant which is probably important for a young child!
I purchased two as presents for our young nephews. Easy to activate the battery, they look very 'grown-up' since first wearing them I don't think they have come off! Many makes/brands to choose from for this age group but I trust Timex.
this is the third watch of this kind I've had over several years and they are brilliant. the elasticated strap and fastener is so convenient for slipping on and off and the water resistance is great for swimming and showering. the only reason I needed a new one is cos they cost a fortune to replace the battery maintaining it's water resistance. the last battery lasted 4 years though so here's hoping.
