Keep your sports training focused with this sporty Timex Ironman Triathlon multi-function, performance sport digital watch (model 5E961), which features a deep orange Indiglo night-light as well as the hands-free Flix Indiglo activation system. It has a durable black resin case, dark gray resin top ring, large buttons for easy access to timing functions, and a tapered dark gray polyurethane strap. It also offers a 6-year battery life, water resistance to 100 meters (330 feet), three alarms, and three time zones. Sport timing functions include:

  • 100-hour chronograph with lap or split option in large digits
  • 99-lap counter
  • 30-lap memory recall
  • 24-hour countdown with countdown/stop (CS) and countdown/repeat (CR)
  • Forward or backward setting
  • Built-in setting reminders
  • Top pusher for easy access to lap and split

This watch incorporates the Timex Flix system, which activates the Indiglo night-light with a simple flick of your wrist. To activate FLIX, put the watch into Night-Mode by pressing and holding the Indiglo night-light button 3 seconds until it beeps. With the watch in Night-Mode, a forward “flick” of the wrist with a sharp “stop” will activate the Indiglo night-light for three seconds.

The Indiglo night-light uniformly lights the surface of the watch dial using patented blue electroluminescent lighting technology. It uses less battery power than most other watch illumination systems, enabling your watch battery to last longer.

    It took a while for Timex to come out with a new Ironman watch that would turn me back from my Casio G-Shock. This one caught my eye.

    It has a bright white LCD display which far out-shines the Casio, 3 alarm types (daily, weekdays and weekends – an intelligent arrangement), 3 time zones, stopwatch, a backward timer and an appointment reminder (with preset appointment names to choose from such as, “birthday”).

    This watch offers plenty of surprises – aside from offering you the features listed above, it actually offers you the ability to turn them off. What this means is you can remove the appointment reminder or the 3rd alarm type (for example) from the mode cycle.

    The Indiglo lighting was another surprise. At first, in regular indoor lighting, I thought Indiglo wasn’t working. It wasn’t until I brought the watch into a darker room that I could see why. All the digital watches I’ve seen light the face with a blueish hue – but this new breed of Ironman lights up just the digits themselves in a negative orange-on-black appearance. The effect isn’t nearly as bright as the “flashlight” typical LCD’s project but it does allow you to read the time… and is probably one of the ways Timex managed to get a 6 year battery life out of these models.

    All in all, a nice find – and finding it at Amazon for 27% off was even nicer!

    The watch is fine, but the watchband is resin (plastic) and like others I have owned, break within a year or so from normal flexing. Mine did and I cannot find a replacement band in stores or online. Thus 2 stars because the watch works, the band doesn’t.

    Works fine, I’ve been using it for running for a few months now and no problems yet. I don’t actually find the lap/split feature to be all that useful. Also when you hit the lap/split button, it takes a few seconds to process – so it’s not useful for very short intervals (10 seconds or less).

    I have this watch in sort of a mid-green color, and I’ve beat it to death. Runs like a top, does everything I need. Plus, I’m a scuba diver and have had it at depths of up to 110 feet fairly often without problems. It really IS water resistant.

    True, the watchband dies pretty quickly, but I found several places to buy a replacement for an average price of $12…one is a sports outlet with three initials in the name – the 18th letter of the alphabet, the 5th, and the ninth. I’ve had mine for over a year and the battery’s still going, but admittedly you probably do have to take it to a jeweler to have it replaced.

    Good luck!

    I don’t agree with the other reviewer. The wrist band is fine. It’s been about 1.5 years and the band hasn’t shown any signs of failing. I guess if you strangle your wrist with the watch then it might not last so long.

    Onto the review.

    I like this watch. Its got three alarms which I need. Other features are easy to use and adjust. Well what else can I say. I’m satisfied.
