In this latest video review, I go hands-on with the Timex Full-Size Ironman Endure 30 Shock Watch. An iconic wristwatch with its roots in the eighties. All the details and more are in the video below:
The Timex Ironman, T5K159 is shock resistant and boasts a 200-meter water resistance. A watch that is not afraid of the dark, armed with Timex’s famous INDIGLO technology. Given its name, you will have guessed it has a bunch of functions that can be useful when exercising. It features a 100-hour chronographChronograph A chronograph complication is a feature in a watch that allows the wearer to measure elapsed time in addition to telling the time. It works by having a separate set of gears and levers, called the chronograph mechanism, which is activated by pressing a button or a pusher. The chronograph mechanism starts and stops the chronograph's second hand, which is usually located on the watch's dial, separate from the regular watch hands. The elapsed time is usually displayed on a sub-dial or a register on the watch's dial. [Learn More] with lap and split times. On the fly lap or split recall. A 99-lap counter. A 24-hour countdown timer, 30-lap memory recall, 2-time zone settings, daily weekday or weekend alarm, and of course time day, and date display.
The Timex Ironman has a durable and lightweight resin case, strap, and a mineral glass crystal which sits nicely recessed and is also reasonably protected. The case width is 41.5mm and the height is approximately 15mm and the lug to lug is 48mm. Powering it all is a quartz digital movement. If this watch looks familiar to you, well that is of course because this is a throwback to the original and by now iconic 1986 IRONMAN with improved functionality and durability. While talking about the Ironman, we compare it with a popular CASIO G-SHOCK and other sport-focused watches such as the Garmin Forerunner.
