Timex T5E231 Review

Timex T5E231 reviewTimex Group B.V. is one of the best-known American watch companies. Timex’s U.S. headquarters are located in Middlebury Connecticut and it has substantial operations in China, the Philippines and India and full scale sales companies in Canada, the UK, France and Mexico. Is that enough for you to quickly buy a watch? Of course not! But this watch and brand promises a lot of things respectively.

This Ironman Timex T5E231 Flix 100 Lap watch is being talked about here. From the Timex Ironman collection, the 100 Lap Ironman Flix Sports Watch features a large display for easy reading, while you’re on the go. 9 timers, 5 alarms, 2 time zones, 100M water resistant and INDIGLO® night light with flix system simply completes it.

Quartz “Movement”

Quartz movement is powered by a battery. It is called quartz movement because the battery works in combination with a quartz crystal. The battery passes an electric current through the crystal to keep it oscillating at over 32,000 vibrations per second.

This vibrating crystal drives a step motor that moves the watch hands at a constant rate to keep time accurately. A good quartz movement is accurate to within 0.5-2 seconds per day. On average, the battery needs to be changed every one and a half years.

Digital “Dial”

Digital display looks ultra modern and a red uneven border adds sporty element to this Timex watch. Chronograph, timers and alarms help you to track your progress, and the 100m water resistance means you’ll never have to take it off, even when your workout calls for a lake swim.

This also has 9 timers, 5 alarms, 2 time zones, 100m water resistant and INDIGLO® night light. One of the most successful and important features available on many Timex watches is the Indiglo backlight system.

Timex electroluminescent lamps, branded Indiglo, were introduced in 1992 in the Ironman watch line. They were an immediate success. The Indiglo® lamp uniformly lights the surface of the Timex’s watch dials in a manner that makes the dial read very easily in many different light settings.

Ironman stands for the strength and resin case brings the sturdy element to the timepiece. Dated Training Log with Best Lap, Average Lap and Total Time, and On-the-Fly Lap or Split Recall is icing on the cake.

Black “Band”

Rubber mark up very easily and with time from sweat and weather it can crack easily. But resin just shoos away all these drawbacks. Watch straps from resin are durable because they are long lasting and flexible. The durability of the resin watch straps is accounted for by its content of higher rubber content.
