It's so cool.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Grandma Trinkets from Iowa on Friday, March 30, 2018Although I like the looks and how it keeps time, the band is so light colored that it is looking dirty very quickly. It would be perfect it if had a darker band.
Reviewed by GearMom from Minneapolis on Thursday, March 22, 2018I purchased this almost 2 years ago and wear it everyday. It still works great and the band has held up, although I rarely take it off or move the sizing. Learning the functions of a new watch are a pain so I've only ever purchased Timex Ironman watches and they never disappoint. I use the chrono function because I do side jobs by the hour and it's great for tracking my time and stopping and restarting for taking breaks. The timer counts down so I use that ocassionally for doing intervals. I don't use the alarm function on it.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Sandra K. from Missoula, Montana on Thursday, March 15, 2018I was excited to get this watch but after I set the time and it started working, it died after two minutes and would not start again!
Reviewed by whalie930 from Westfield, NJ on Friday, February 16, 2018I ordered this watch because I wanted a neutral band and liked the goldtone accents. But what I didn't pay attention to is that the watch face is faded out-you don't really see the sticks for the minutes-you only see them if you press the dial and then the whole face lights up blue. But for everyday, it just doesn't work for me. I want to see what time it is by looking at my wrist in real time.
This watch is too tricky for its own good. Oh, and the watch face is super big which also doesn't work for me as I have a small wrist. Overall, not a good purchase.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Cappnormal from Minnesota on Friday, February 16, 2018Im not a big fan of wearing watches with metal bands. That being said, I purchased this one because the price was right. It will not be my every day watch. It WILL be a nice addition for my watch stash and occasional wear.
From what I can tell at this point, all the little dials on the face are purely decorative.
Its a very nice watch.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Lazy K from Michigan on Thursday, February 15, 2018I hardly ever wear a watch. I needed one for a month or so in the spring. For the price this is the answer. Simple. Good quality.

Reviewed by treeclimber from Truckee,CA on Saturday, February 3, 2018I got this Ironman Sleek 150 "black face" watch for my birthday yesterday. The black face with lighted numbers is very hard to see (the numbers are too dim!) without using the "Indiglo" back light. I've been using Ironman watches since the first one came out in the 1980s- never had a problem viewing the display, but this "black face" is hard to read even when I'm not exercising- impossible to see it with a quick glance when I am exercising.
There is a "Contrast" function on this watch but changing this setting does nothing to improve the visibility of this display (no matter what the contrast setting I saw no improvement).
Very bad design- I can see why Timex no longer sells any watches with this "Black Face". I'm guessing this is from an older model year because I don't see any "black face" watches on the Timex.com website.
The "TAP" function: There are 3 sensitivity settings: light, medium, hard
If I use anything but "light" I almost need to hit it with a hammer to set a lap split!
When I have it on the "light" setting, I simply have to slap it and it will record a split ; however the screen face is a big easy target so it would be easy to set a split without intending to: I am sure that I would accidentally touch it, or hit it on myself, brush, branches to cause false split times... Because of this I would not use the "TAP" function. I like the normal Ironman (30-lap, 50-lap, 100-lap) watch where I simply hit the button on the face to set a split time. It's almost impossible to activate that button by accident.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Adele the Lady from Michigan on Wednesday, January 31, 2018Quality workmanship, I am petite so this was the right size. Other watches tend to have a larger dial. Has minutes listed, easy read as I work long hours and need a dependable, accurate watch. The leather is nice but I am not a fan of the white ban so I will be switching it out for brown and since the metal is both gold and silver you can really use a lot of different color bands if you choose.
