Timex Ironman Transit Timer Watch
Timex’s Ironman Transit timer watch is an excellent choice for those who are active yet want something relatively simple. Although men’s and women’s models are shaped and sized differently, they both include all of the same materials and features. In addition, both still feature a lightweight and modern design that proves to be surprisingly durable.
As stated before, this model includes a countdown timer as well as a customizable alarm to aid and enhance the buyer’s runs and workouts. It also comes with a ten-lap counter so runners can better keep track of their progress. And, as with man Timex watches, the INDIGLO Nigh Light is added for more efficient use in low-light environments.
-Great for an active lifestyle
-Very reasonably priced
-Can be uncomfortable
-Difficult to set up for some
Its durable wear allows it to constant usage And because it’s water resistant in up to 100 meters, buyers can also track of their swimming workouts or simply wear it on a casual day to the beach or pool. This also means that jogs through heavy rain can’t damage this surprisingly durable watch.
While it seems to be durable enough for use in more rugged environments, its lack of any wireless connection might scare some buyers away from using it while they’re off the grid. Those who are much more active, or are required to stay connected throughout the day would be better off finding a smartwatch.
This watch is outfitted with five separate buttons, and all are clearly labeled with their designated function. There are three to set, start, and stop the timer/stopwatch feature, as well as one change the mode and another to turn on the INDIGLO Night Light. The men’s model has two buttons on the left side and three on the left, while the women’s model has one button at each corner of the casing and one at the bottom center.
Its stopwatch is also considered to be more advanced than average thanks to its ten-lap memory. It’s able to record and retain the times of the runner’s past ten laps to help them better keep track of their progress, which really comes in handy while training for a big upcoming race.
In addition, those who follow Military Time will be glad to know that this watch has a mode that allows it to easily switch over to fit their preferences.
Some buyers consider this to be a good thing, as it allows them to completely disconnect during workouts and focus solely on their chosen activity. However, those who live more active lifestyles or frequently partake in different forms of outdoor recreation feel more at ease when they’re connected. Therefore, a smartwatch would be a much better option for these particular buyers.
As a result, many buyers find this watch to be on the simpler side compared to the smartwatches that are released today. Still, it’s clear that they greatly appreciate how much its added features aid and enhance their runs and workouts.
On the other hand, there are quite a few buyers who claim that its band cuts into their wrist due to the way that it’s shaped. As a result, they’ve concluded that it’s not meant for all wrist shapes and there is very little that can be done about this model’s overall design. While most watches can easily switch out their silicone or resin band for one that’s made from fabric, this one’s overall design might make that a little difficult to achieve.
Either way, both versions have been praised for their modern and simplistic design that easily fits into a number of different environments. Both are made from the same materials and carry all of the exact same features, including the five-button control and digital displays.
As for the colors, each design is available in three different options for buyers to choose from. Men’s sizes offer black, blue, and green, while women can pick between black, purple, and white.
This band is listed as being 20mm thick for the men’s version and 12mm thick for the women’s version. Their lengths are also listed as men’s and women’s standard, meaning that they can fit wrist sizes up to eight and seven inches respectively.
It should also be pointed out that there is a noticeable size difference between men’s and women’s models. Their bands are 20mm and 12mm wide respectively, and their cases are measured at 1.6 in. and 1.3 in. in diameter. And while the men’s watch weighs in at 1.6 oz., the women’s version weighs just under a full ounce.
Ease of use
Unfortunately, multiple buyers across multiple platforms have claimed that they struggled with setting up the time and date when they first bought this model.
While it does prove to be more convenient for most buyers, the thought of having to replace the battery or reset it completely is still daunting to a large number of buyers. There also doesn’t seem to be any online information that details how long this watch is supposed to stay powered up in between each replacement.
Considering its durable and versatile wear, and how easy it is to read, it doesn’t come as much of a surprise that buyers find this watch to be an incredible bargain. It’s also understandable when one realizes how simple it is compared to the more technologically advanced options that are now available to buyers.
Some were still disappointed, however, when they finally put it on and realized that they weren’t happy with its level of comfort. If trying this model on is not an option, then it’s a good idea to check the retailer’s return policy before making a purchase.

With that said, this model is still not without its flaws. The shape and design of its resin wristband has proven to be too uncomfortable for multiple buyers. And those who aren't used to this particular design might find it hard to set up when they first purchase it. Still, it's clear that those who are satisfied have made this watch one of their primary tools for both fitness and daily living.
