i know this had been done a few times, but everyones needs are different

basically, im after a watch that has to have the following

a large display with indigo-lighting

stop watch feature up-till adleast 12 hours (with the same large display) this would be the main reason for the watch

water proof/resistant

dont mind used, but not looking on spending more than around £60

ive seen a few HRM watches with large displays, but im unsure if the stop-watch feature, is as big as the time display

i like the SUUTO core watches, but (from what ive seen) the stop-watch feature, is in a small sub-display, which is not what i want

greatfull for any advise

You didnt specify HRM ? If thats not important to you - get one of the Timex Ironman watches. About ??30 or so. Large display, countdown timer, nice stopwatch and bombproof.

thanks for the reply

your right, im not that interested in a HRM, only if it covers all the above, but its not important

funny you mention the ironman as its the one that keeps comeing-up when ive been looking, as it seems to have all the things im looking for

If you want the Indiglo NightLight then Timex is the way to go as it's their own system

The only HRM watch with stop watch and large display under £60 is the Zone Trainer http://hrm-reviews.com/timex-zone-trainer-heart-rate-monitor/

As Cougie says if you don't need a HRM there are plenty of Timex Ironman options.

The Timex Sport Ironman Triathlon watch is on Amazon at £21.06 instead of £49.99 this week only. Type in code B000JNHLGY on the search bar to find it

thanks for the replys

as said, been looking around and the ironman fills all my requirements

its actuall been designed as a training-watch with the runner/trainer in-mind

especially with the large display and easy tap screen (so no need to look for buttons while running/training)

so thats what im going to go-with, the 150 tap-screen

as mentioned, a few going anywhere from £30-60, so will let others know what i think of it, when i actually get-one

again thanks for the advise
