Broke in 3 months - No abuse to watch
on March 17, 2014
I bought this watch for longevity and durability. For 3 months, the watch performed admirably. It is light, comfortable and you forget you are wearing it. I bought it mainly for wearing at work in a very casual environment. For anything beyond this, I was somewhat embarrassed to wear it as it is quite ugly and looks like a kids watch.
After 3 months of no abuse, the light button stopped working which means I can no longer change the time, date, or use the light. After traveling back to the US, the time is off by 15 hours, so the watch is useless to me. I cant even reset the stopwatch feature due to the broken button.
I contacted Shopemco and received the dreaded "Contact the Manufacturer". I called Casio and of course I am responsible for shipping which would be more than the watch is worth...
Maybe I got a lemon, so I will consider buying another one for work and salvage the straps and battery from this one but I will use a different vendor who has more than a 30 day return period or at least a little more understanding.
