Timex Expedition WS4 widescreen watch

timex-ws4The Timex Expedition WS4 looks like a nifty timepiece for watch geeks. It has a widescreen display and a multifunction dashboard with an altimeter, barometer, compass and a thermometer. It’s water resistant, and has a daily alarm settable for daily/weekday/weekend with 5-minute backup alert.

    features and functions are nice, but aesthetically, timex should have picked a slightly beefier font and interface. all the LCD elements look a bit washed-out and whimpy 🙁

    That thing looks like a beast… Thats one I may have to look into to go along with my other beast My citizens pro diver (between them both I bet I could sink straight to the bottom of a lake)…

    Not sure I would go with a salmon colored wrist accessory. Although, if it told me what my current tire pressure was and could open my garage door… then maybe.

    I have had one for a few days now. It is surprisingly light for its large size. My friends girlfriend asked if it could be used as a life raft in the event of falling overboard or sinking lol. I agree that the fonts would be better a bit chunkier, but it is very clear even in bright sunlight. I also have a Tissot T-Touch to compare it with, and can say that they both track pressure readings identicaly, although the Timex seems to have a better idea of the altitude (the Tissot seems to drift more even though the barometric readings are the same!) The EL backlight is great at night, and night mode means not having to keep pressing the indiglo butten every few seconds.
