When I got this watch as a Christmas present a little over a year ago, I was very impressed with the quality of the watch and the new sleek band. The watch itself is good and there is nothing wrong with that as the battery on it is still in good working order, however I can no longer wear this watch anymore, the band in a word sucks. 6 months after I got this, I had to glue the band back on where it connects to the actual watch because over the course of time and normal wear and tear of the watch, as I wore it everyday, they had disconnected from the actual watch. That solved the problem and I was happy again with the watch, but unfortunately 8 months after that repair the band broke to a point where it was no longer wearable and because of the watch's design I could not find a replacement band for it. Good watch, band not so much. I have owned many watches over the course of my lifetime, this one as nice as it looks is not a good buy because the band is poor quality. I hope this was just a lemon experience if you will, but my recommendation is to stay away from plastic watch band watches and go with the fabric style. While these might be a little less stylish they will last much longer in the long run.
I intended to get this just for timing my crossfit workout and mountain bike trail rides, I have always used analog watches for daily use and for nursing clinical. I was delighted to see it offers 2 clocks and you can program one to 24 hours and one to 12hr and it also shows seconds so I can use it for nursing too. Only draw back is the face bubbles outward a little so i tend to hit it on stuff and have already slightly scratched it. Seems pretty durable but I try to be careful not to get it too wet after reading reviews that it doesn't hold up as well as advertised. I feel for the price even if it needs replaced in a year it is still a good deal.
if you are like me and prefer functional to fancy in watches, this is great. appearance is little different than the usual sports watches... a nice twist on the basic presentation... and comfortable . easy to read, even for those of us who are over 50 ...
This watch is easy to program and I really like it has a saftey at end of band so it will not accidently fall off. At first thought color would be alittle more silver but it is grey it is goes with everything.
- How accurate was the sizing? I have a very small wrist and it fits with no problems and not alot of holes left over.
