Unique, cute, and reasonable
on July 7, 2014
I got this watch in a different color and I love it, but I have to say that it is not high quality, though good enough for less than $10.00. It is unique and cute. I adore the style. Some things I dislike about it are that it only has two size adjustments, which means if you have a small wrist, you'll have to get used to it sliding around like a bracelet and always hanging with the watch face down since that's how gravity likes it. The other thing to beware of is it is absolutely not water resistant. Even running water over it for a second will cause it to get water droplets on the inside, though they will dry out. My latest issue is that I went swimming with it on by accident and the face filled up with water. It stopped ticking for several minutes, but then came back to life for about a day even with the water still sloshing around inside of it. Now it's rusting and has stopped again, which is why I'm here because I really want another one! I got the brown one originally for a more natural look, but now I am interested in trying white because I'm going to a wedding soon and I think it will match what I'm going to wear. Another thing to mention is it jingles a lot because it has loosely connected metal pieces to support its style and they clank together when you move. It reminds me of a dog's collar, but I guess some bracelets jingle like that anyway. I think the cuteness makes up for the low quality. Just don't have high expectations and you'll be able to enjoy it for what it is. It's not the type of watch that you strap on tight and position it perfectly. It's more like snap it on and view it as a fun decorative thing with a cheap clock attached. I can see why some reviewers think it's crappy while others love it. Its biggest strength is style and concept, but not reliability, and you have to come to terms with that or else you may be setting yourself up to feel disappointed. For $5.00, I'd say it's reasonable. I'm giving it four stars because it's not excellent, but I'm very pleased with it and would buy it again.
