First of all this watch is so gorgeous, the pictures do not do it justice. There is a slight shimmer in the band when the light hits it that is not gaudy at all but reminds me of like a pearlized paint on a car. It is also extremely sturdy and durable. During the school year I am a special educator and during the summer I work at therapeutic recreation camp for kiddos with autism. I have swam in this watch, had kiddos grabbing and pulling on it (they love it too), and numerous other rough and tumble activities without so much as a nick to the band or scratch to the face. Paint wipes right off of it and the only thing i have noticed is i have 1 little ink stain on the inside of my band, but no one else knows it is there but me. I also love that it is digital and I can give exact minutes and times to my kiddos and it is useful for timing seizures when the need arises. I have gotten so many compliments on it and I never want to take it off. I have never been a true watch wearer before but I think I am always going to rely on armitron from now on. Heck, I had never even heard of them before. My watch came pre-programmed to my time and there were directions in the box as well. I was a bit worried because I read other reviews that said it was tough to program. I fiddled with it and if you follow the directions it is pretty easy. It doesn't have many bells and whistles but I don't need that. And the best part....it is super cheap!
