Timex T49851 Review: Expedition Vibration Alarm Black Watch

When designing this watch, Timex was targeting men who love a sturdy piece that is both reliable and accurate.

It has been in the scene for quite some time and does get the nod for a number of things.

In the Timex T49851 review, we will show you some of its worthy features.

Timex Men's T49851 Expedition Vibrating Alarm Black Resin...

  • 100-hour chronograph; 24-hour countdown timer; 3 vibrating & audible daily alarms
  • 24-hour military time mode; 3 time zones; occasion reminders; hydration timer; calendar

Casual Styled Resin Case

This is among the watches from Timex that make use of resin.

The material proves more functional than plastic and rubber. It is lightweight but yet sturdy and has good flexibility.

It is more tolerant of chemicals, temperature changes, sweat, and skin oil.

The case has a 43mm diameter, which ranks it among the large watches.

The thickness is also on a larger scale, measuring 15mm.

Despite the bulkiness and large size, it is a relatively light watch considering that the overall weight is about 1.76 ounces.

Resin Bezel with Compass Point

Like the case and strap, the bezel is made of resin.

It looks large and has a wide border to complete the watch’s bulky looking nature.

It merges seamlessly with the acrylic crystal to create a flawless transition.

You will also notice compass points all around it. You have the main points (N, E, and S, W) written in bold as well as the subsidiary points (NE, SE, SW, and NW) also in bold.

It comes in a beveled/ sloped design and is black in color just like the case and strap.

Sporty Features with Indiglo Nightlight

You will agree that the watch does have a sporty appeal.

It is bulky but still very lightweight. It comes in all black but has small orange accents (at the top and bottom of the face).

The most obvious is the countdown timer and the stopwatch.

Picking a function is as simple as pressing the associated button, which is placed on the edge of the watch.

It comes with the respected Indiglo nightlight, which improves visibility particularly in dimly lit surroundings or at night.

It brightens the entire display giving you clear views of the time.

There is an orange market at the top section of the watch that illuminates in the dark.

Black Flexible Resin Band

It’s a common observation that most sporty watches feature a resin strap.

The T49851 also follows suit. The band is very flexible and lightweight.

Wearing and removing the timepiece is fairly easy. And to prevent scratching, irritating, or leaving marks on the skin, it has a smooth finish.

The band feels more rubbery than plastic and is stronger than pure rubber. It measures 21mm wide and is 9.5 inches long.

The plain black color gives it a serious and rugged look. It handles wetness, water, sweat, spills, and rain quite well.

According to the manufacturer, this timepiece is factual in water as deep as 330feet/ 100meters.

You, therefore, should not have problems swimming, snorkeling, or taking a bath/shower with it.

In Conclusion

A timepiece looks well styled for casual wear and sports activities.

It has a bold look and is moderately large, just the way men like it.

However, it is not heavy. The item boasts of solid resin construction (case, bezel, straps) which handle day-to-day wear well.

The digital piece is also accurate ah and has a practical and user-friendly LCD display. This watch would meet your needs and desires quite well.
