$100 Timex altimeter watch for $20

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

$100 Timex altimeter watch for $20

https://www.timex.com/bin/detail.tmx?item=753048156634
Just ordered one, I do not know if it is a pricing mistake or what? The 2 silver colored of the same model are still $100. This is 24.97. With the "JUNE" 20% discount code, 19.97 and free shipping, overnite for 10 more. How can you go wrong! Does anyone have or seen one?

Thanks for the tip. Been considering an altimeter, but didn't want to pay much.

I don't have one, but it's certainly a mistake made by Timex. It looks like you lucked out!

Ordered it from where? That link goes to the Timex corporate site. I may be inept, but I don't see any online ordering capability there.

It's nice, but there's no way an LCD digital watch with a plastic strap retails for $100. I think you got a $25 watch for $20.

Don't see many altimeter, thermometer, and barometer watches for $20.

So, do you think it is really out of stock, or did someone notice a spike in sales today?

Being a veteran Fatwallet/Slick Deals wh0re....I slam dunked this deal when I first saw the thread...two minutes after it was posted. Good deal - tagged one. Only one on fleabay that I could find, although mine won't end up there. Lets hope they don't cancel our orders for those of us who got in on the mistake.
