A few weeks back I wrote about my search for a new running watch. I’m happy to report I found a watch and today I’m talking about it in this Timex Ironman Sleek 50 Watch review.
As a side note, I appreciate all the input everyone gave me. I purchased the Timex Ironman Sleek 50 Classic Mid-Size Watch in light purple for about $37 including shipping.

Timex Ironman Sleek 50 Watch Review
Pros: So far I really like the Timex Ironman Sleek 50 Classic Mid-Size Watch. I have learned to use the interval timer to set up a walk/run timer for my long runs. The design is stylish and the screen is easy to read and it makes me feel like a hardcore athlete when I wear it. I also like that it is water resistant which is helpful for sweat.
Cons: My only “complaints” have been the strap is a bit long. I have it on almost the smallest notch, however I do have small wrists. Also I am having issues with the whole “lap counter” feature that I desired. The way it seems to me when I press “lap/set” it will set a lap based on time, not distance. My goal was to press the lap button each time I ran a mile (on a marked trail) to kinda keep track of my pace. Perhaps I am using it wrong.
Disclosure: I am not compensated for product reviews, unless otherwise stated. I purchased this product with my own money and decided to write a Timex Ironman Sleek 50 Watch review. All opinions and thoughts here are my own. Some links within this post are affiliate links.
