Large, easy-to-read display. Lightweight. Timex's interface nails it. Everything you need to see without the clutter. Using the various features is intuitive enough that the instructions aren't really needed. Everything, including setting the time and alarms, only takes a few seconds once I got used to it. The beep and hourly chime can be turned on and off (I like my watch to stay quiet), and you can turn off features that you don't use (I don't use the Occasion feature). If you press the nightlight and then start pressing buttons, the nightlight stays on even when it's not in night mode, so you can still set alarms and use the features in darkness or low light. I've worn Timex for years, and I like this most recent style. Kinda reminds me of something from HALO. The band has a little tab that locks the excess in place so that it doesn't stick out or come undone. I have seen people wear this with a suit, though I'm not sure I would. The only real caveat is that if you want the FLIX feature, make sure you get one that has it since the FLIX and non-FLIX watches are almost identical. Also, I find the Occasion feature tedious because you can only scroll by days and not months, so setting an occasion 6 months away might take a minute or two, and there is no way to clear all occasions at once. This doesn't take away from the watch's functionality, though, because I can just disable the feature. I haven't had the watch long enough to attest to its toughness, but at this price point, if it breaks, you can just buy another one, right?
