Size:
-This is a big face watch. It is about the size of most clunky G-shock Casios, but if you are looking for a small face watch this isn't it.

Band:
Made out of softer rubber and somewhat wide, the weak side of this watch along with almost all other "sport" watches is that the CLIP that holds the slack of the band slides off and the band pops out. However, this happens to me with most watches that don't have a designated clip for the band that holds it in place

Exposure to water:
I shower with this watch on every day and I have gone swimming in it a couple times now, it is perfectly waterproof so far and I expect it will be for a while

Display:
I have no trouble seeing the numbers in broad daylight, indoors, at night with the light on, etc. The product picture shows the backlight on, whereas the watch simply has grey numbers on a black background (reverse lcd?). Perhaps it can be hard for some with poor vision

Functionality:
can show AM/PM time, has the day of the week, date and time shown plain and big. The light is bright enough to see easily in the dark

Really good inexpensive "tactical" cop watch. Perfect the harsh environments of everyday outdoor life. Looks great too, and digits are discrete in the dark.

I love this watch!
I am a female and I'm going to school to be an EMT, So It's really helpful to have a watch with the numbers displayed so clearly (and largely) that I can accurately see not only what time it is, but I can easily access the stop-watch feature to take a quick set of vitals. It's not heavy or clunky, and the straps are a very soft rubber-like material (It's also water-resistant! which is something, I, personally, ALWAYS want/need in a watch).
I find it unique that the time can be displayed in both "military" and "regular" time (Example: 4:00 or 16:00). It's also helpful that it also displays what day of the week it is, along with what number-day.
The only things I dislike about this watch are the fact that the back-light only stays on for a few seconds (about 3), I wish it'd stay on a bit longer. However, that is definitely not a "deal breaker" for me, when purchasing this watch, especially for it's price! :)

The display color is sort of a dull bronze. It is no where near the bright blue green you see on the amazon site. It seems as if the battery is dying. The owner's manual says the display will darken when the battery wears out. I exchanged for another one and it had the same problem.

Great outdoor sports watch for the money.

pros: comfort, lightweight, price

cons: a little hard to see at some angles when its bright outside, and the indiglo could be brighter.

Love the sporty look but the display is kind of dark. Kind of heavy but I'm ok with it and I love the rubber wrist band as I can't wear metal ones because I get a rash..

I've been looking for a watch to wear during workouts and came across this one. It arrived within two days, has worked perfectly and fits great.

I bought this watch because my current Armitron had taken a beating and it couldn't get back up. The face on this watch may scratch, but it can take some pain. The instructions are slightly irritating,but nothing to worry about once you get past the initial setup. I do wish the watch didn't have those weird bars at the top above the time, that change patterns as the seconds go buy. I say this,because I think it too "loud" and makes the watch scream. All else aside, it is a great watch. My watch came with the wrong instructions and Armitron was very quick (1 business day) to email me the correct ones. If you need a watch that goes great when your outside of an area that does not get cell phone coverage and can take a beating, go with this one.

Despite what it says in the specifications above, there is no moon phase display on this watch. It's not Amazon's fault, the same misinformation is on Armitron's site as well.
No, the display is *never* as bright as shown on the picture. Don't buy the hype about the "three link resin band". It's all a one-piece strap of rubber, not resin.
I will be returning this watch. It's too bad that Armitron indulges in this type of dishonesty - I know Amazon can not check each and every piece of merchandise that passes through their hands.

Just bought this watch and I love it! Good price and comfortable feel to it. Good features, stop watch, alarm is good and date and time are awesome. No more not knowing the date. Lol I just have one question. maybe someone can help me. I don't know what the blinking bars are for in the top box on the watch. Doesn't say anything about them in the manual. If you can figure this out please email me ishbeus@gmail.com thank you.
