    Does anyone have any personal experience with this watch? I see them ranging between $100-$200 and I'm interested in getting one. I've watched all the reviews I could find on youtube and read a few.

    But, I value the EDCF community opinion, so here I am asking for help.

    I know Timex isn't the most popular watch brand around these parts, but I've always loved them and had nothing but good luck. So, If you have any experience with them, Please let me know.

    Below I pictured a few I like. Only differences being the materials, all the functions are the same.

    Those look sharp! I remember liking those when I saw them researching before...

    Good choices, sorry, though, I don't have any info for you ;)

    They have some decent stuff on there cheap. Are you going to get one of these watches too? Check some youtube videos out on them. Pretty cool.

    Just found out I have to have a root canal and a cap put on a tooth in the next month. And I'm getting married in 3. So I think unless I can magically sell some stuff, I'm not getting one either. haha

    Time to hit Ebay.

    A problem that I have found with these watches is that to get an accurate temperature reading, it is necessary to remove the watch from one's wrist, and wait for the case to cool to the ambient temperature. Additionally, I find it troublesome to calibrate the compass feature.

    That's the one Timex that always catches my eye. I'm afraid my experience with Timex has been an unhappy one, or I'd have probably bought it by now.
