The Timex T5E361 blends its signature Ironman Triathlon multi-function, performance sport digital watch with an analog read-out. The dual-tech feature enables you to turn the digital screen off for just an analog watch display, with its luminous hands and orange seconds hand. The large, rounded watch case has a dark gray resin body with a silver stainless steel top ring with 10-minute marks printed on the bezel. It offers a top pusher for easy access to lap and split times, 100-hour chronograph with lap or split option, 50-lap memory recall, 99-lap counter, 24-hour countdown timer with countdown/stop and countdown/repeat functions. It also features built-in reminder settings, forward/backward setting, and water resistance to 100 meters (330 feet).

The Indiglo night-light uniformly lights the surface of the watch dial using patented blue electroluminescent lighting technology. It uses less battery power than most other watch illumination systems, enabling your watch battery to last longer. The Night Mode feature allows you to illuminate the Indiglo night-light for 3 seconds with any button press, regardless of the mode or function.

 
 
Customer Comparison Reviews Timex Men’s Ironman Triathlon 50-Lap Combo Dual Tech Watch #T5E361
Average User Review:  out of 5 stars

User Review 5 out of 5 review starsvery satisfied
This multi-mode analog/digital watch is very convenient to use and is reasonably priced. Unlike other dual-mode watches with a small digital display near the 6, the hands do not interfere with reading the large digital display.

Another review complained of unacceptable divergence of the digital and analog times. In over two months, the two displays remained within 1 second of each other.

User Review 5 out of 5 review starsAn Absolute Steal for the Price!
I’ve owned a number of digital watches, but this one rates as my favorite. I like it far better than the Casio it is replacing. I spent a few hours researching moderately priced digital watches on the internet, and finally settled on the Timex T5E361. I’m glad I did. This is a ruggedly handsome watch featuring large, clear time/date displays. Additionally, it is equipped with all the essential functions (alarm, countdown timer, chronograph, night light, 2nd time zone etc) and they are straightforward and simple to operate. Plus, although it’s not mentioned in the advertising copy, the watch does feature 12/24 time format. There are many watches out there to choose from, but from my experience this T5E361 rates right at the very top of the moderately priced digital watch class.

User Review 5 out of 5 review starsGreat Watch
I love this watch! The only things I can see that would be a nice addition to the design are:
1. Make the face of the watch of a whiter material so that the Indiglo would light up the analog hands better and,
2. Improve the manual that comes with the watch. It does not tell you how to turn the digital function on and off…which is easy to figure out BTW (press and hold the STOP/RESET button until it is off or on).

User Review 5 out of 5 review starsGreat watch, great features
I’ve had the watch for two weeks now, and it keeps perfect time. With the digital display off it is a very cool analog watch, and all of the digital features work beautifully. Stylish, practical, and great for all kinds of activities… it’s my second Ironman watch. The last one is 7 years old and still works great, and this one seems to be along the same lines of quality.

User Review 4 out of 5 review starsGood watch, good time, no problems
I’ve had this watch for about 5 months now. It’s a very good watch. I’ve set it using a radio time clock and it keeps perfect time. The stem has not pulled out and I really don’t see how it could unless you pull it with pliers or something. I like the feature where you can turn off the glowing digital time and date. You are left with a very cool looking black face with three hands. It keeps time in two zones and has all the usual features of an Ironman watch. The strap look likes it will last and it’s comfortable to wear. I have no problem recommending this watch to anyone.

 
User Review 1 out of 5 review starsIt took a total of 3 minutes to decide to return!
Well, this watch certainly has the looks and the features. It has elegant analog hands on a digital background. Looks really really nice. I got it off the box, pull the crown to set the analog hands, and poof…! The little knob and the watch ended up on my two different hands! The crown knob to set the analog hands came off, making the analog hands of the watch virtually useless. I am rather disappointed with Timex, since I have used their watches in the past with no problems. Let’s just hope that the one that I got was a single, isolated bad one. I have returned it immediately. I am still waiting for a refund from Amazon. I will order another Timex (not this model, of course), just to give them another chance.

User Review 1 out of 5 review starsDidn’t keep good time.
I loved this watch for a couple of days. Especially how the whole face displays the digital information. I could read it. The analog hands were also easy to see especially when you have the black digital display turned off so only the hands showed. The buttons were easy to press and in the same place and order as most Timex digitals. So easy to check the time in the dark.

Timex has always been a reliable brand name. I could not believe it when the hands didn’t keep good time. They lost a noticable amount of minutes in less than a day.
I despair that even Timex has become a casualty of the global race to the bottom.
