Purchased for construction work. Taking a licking & still tickingRead More
I will be looking for a better watch! It is not what I thought it would be,It hard to read in the dark and the compass takes to long to catch up to the direction you are going!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Read More
I bought the watch for 3 reasons: 1) Stopwatch features for running, 2) Compass, & 3) Stylish look. I'm disappointed with 2 out of the 3 features. 1. The stopwatch features are great! They suit my needs at present. However, the split times do me little good because there doesn't seem to be a way to retrieve earlier split times at the end of a run/race. 2. The compass direction never seems to be accurate. This is disappointing because other reviewers gave positive reviews about this feature. Only one reviewer mentioned it took some time for the compass to "catch up" with the current position. 3. My BIGGEST disappointment is with the LOOK: The brown plastic looks cheap, and the leather on the strap also looks cheap (bonded leather instead of quality leather). From a distance, it still looks great, but still disappointed. Finally, after wearing the watch for about 2 weeks and a couple of times in the water, the silver coating on the directional dial is starting to come off. Overall, I would NOT recommend this watch to others, except perhaps for a teenager just starting out.Read More
Recevied watch 2 weeks ago. The band is to short and the light level is too low for reading at night. I had high hopes but was disapointed.Read More
