This is my first smart watch. I don’t like wearing things on my wrists, so I didn’t want to spend a lot of money. The Timex received excellent reviews, and, at $179, is a very good buy. I’ve been wearing the watch for almost two weeks and really like the watch’s features and styling. The steps feature seems mostly accurate. I think after more time, I’ll get used to the watch and then would probably rate the Timex higher.

Update: 11-6-2021Among previously listed issues with this insufficiently smart smartwatch, now it likes to give me the “you’ve been sitting too long” alert directly after getting up to walk somewhere, or while I’ve actually been standing at my desk.It’s just not a good smartwatch. It’s a fancy OLED screen watch with slight connection capabilities that are not very reliable.I WANT MY MONEY BACK!!!––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––Update: 8-30-2021I really really wish that I had not missed the return window by just 2 days.Having never really really wanting a smart watch, but simply replacing a daily watch with an inexpensive smart watch, I didn’t really expect a whole lot of functionality out of this one. However, I do wish that it would do some of the things it does do, a lot better. Like, if I want to record a workout like a walk, it has taken up to 3 minutes for the watch to get a GPS signal. Even if my phone is nearby and the signal is high, the watch still takes way too long to get it’s stuff together. Then there’s what the GPS plots out as the route I took. It’s often times an entire block off and has me walking through buildings.Now that I have taken the plunge, I just wish I could get my money back and put it towards an Apple Watch so I knew it would work the way it should.––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––This is my first smartwatch and it is what I was expecting. It’s not as connected or functional as an Apple Watch. It’s great for notifications. It can only silence a call, not answer it. It can only review text messages, not respond or show attachments. But I have been able to get better sleep, count my steps and monitor my heart rate and I know I’m not missing texts and calls like i was before I had this watch.Pros:1. I went on a business trip and forgot my charger. It had already been a day or 2 since the last full charge and I was able to make it home from a 4 day long trip and get it on the charger with 10% battery left. I noticed that it changed the watch face to a less energy-intensive design to conserve battery. That was smart.Cons:1. I dont like having to download a watch face every single time I want to change one. It said somewhere that we can have up to 20 watch faces. But apparently that’s only stored in your app. There are only 3 watch faces saved on the actual watch and 2 of those 3 will not go away to make room for 2 more faces that you actually want, so you can quickly switch faces on the go. No, you have to have your phone, open the app, navigate to a face and wait for it to download to and then sync with the watch. Takes way too long and uses battery. Which, oddly enough, Timex warns you about fancy watch faces using more battery life as they force you to go through this unnecessary sequence for a simple watch change.2. while on my business trip, i was worried that my battery would not make it through the week. So I searched all over Amazon for a spare charger to have sent to my hotel. But the only place you can get a charger, it seems, is through the Timex web site. So, if I wanted to pay $43 to ship a $20 charger, that would have worked out great. But, I would have rather purchased one from Amazon and Primed it to me.

Overall the watch does exactly what I want. The app/watch analytics are not right. I have had the watch a few weeks and one of the things I have found the funniest is how inaccurate the step counter is. I walk almost the exact same path each morning, but the step vary by 50% or more. One day it may count the steps as 2500, another day it maybe as low as 1200 range.The other item that kind of frustrated me was the first day I got the watch. I could not get the call/text notifications to work, even though granting permissions. It started working the next day and I haven’t had an issue since then. It was hanging that first day looking for a GPS connection. I am wondering if maybe that had to happen first before all the security settings updated.All in all, the battery is excellent. I can easily make it through a work week with plenty battery left.I did not buy this watch to monitor health, as I have yet to see a watch that I would put that faith in. I purchased the watch for the GPS, Notifications and battery life. Because that was my expectation, the watch does very well. If you are expecting more, then I would recommend looking for another watch.

The app doesn’t automatically connect, for me at least. It’s very basic. If you have a tiny wrist then you’re in luck.
