Rated 3 out of 5 by HowardR Old Inventory - Be Careful!
The watch would be fine, but it apparently was in Wal-Mart inventory so long the battery is almost dead. Now I have to replace the battery, and compromise the water-resistancy of the watch.

This is a great watch for my Fiance'. He works outside all the time and this is hard to break.
Rated 4 out of 5 by WeekendMower To Afghanistan and back
I had this watch for 3 years- battery replaced 1x.
Periodically have to re-orient/calibrate the compass b/c you can inadvertently press the mode button and end up resetting it/ or even leaving it on the compass setting for an extended period of time can prevent it from functioning... easy to recalibrate- just press/hold set and rotate 2x slowly... enter any declination (if known - for proper map orientation/ grid-magnetic deviation). I used it extensively on Land Nav. courses (army) and even on missions in Afg... my ONLY problem was the type before this had a unique band- when it wore out- it was difficult to find the exact one to order from Timex. It's not the most sexy watch- but it works perfectly. I also like the events reminder function and multiple time setting - was very helpful going from home- Texas- to training- Washington St- to Afg... that way I always knew without thinking- ok- I'm +9.5 and Texas is -6 when not in Daylight Savings... oh- one last thing- if you hate scrolling through the MANY options- you can even disable them from showing up in the scroll menu!
I am sad to say, I took it off for training and lost it.. buying another
