    Timex Iron Man Triathlon Watch Strap
    There’s a lot I like about this watch: Big display, easy to hit buttons, seems to survive underwater and a nice UI with few unnecessary button presses. The build is also nice: the band feels solid and the buttons press in nicely. However I have a few problems with it. In descending order:

    1) It falls behind 1 second per day. That means every couple months it will get another minute early. This is much worse than any other watch I’ve had.
    2) The big face button is prone to accidental presses and holds. I guess it depends on your habits but it seems quite frequent that it will register a long press and change to the other timezone. I had to make Time 1 and Time 2 the same so the time wouldn’t jump around randomly.
    3) The “FLIX” system seems rather annoying to actually get working. It has to be in night mode to start, which means quite a long press on the indiglo button. Then for 8 hours if you flick your wrist hard, it will light up for 2 seconds. I just haven’t bothered with the feature.

    Very legible and simply watch, and of course cheap. I like it.
