The Pyle Spots Watch is a nice looking watch full of features. While it can be difficult to see and has so many options that it can be difficult to navigate. Attached to your wrist the Pyle Sports watch works well, but when attached to your pack it is especially useful.

Notes-

- Lightweight watch - which you would expect from a watch with a rubber band

- Has loads of built in features - compass (which works well), altitude, barometer, temperature, alarms and laps.

- The thermometer works well when you are not wearing it - but the readings are definitely influenced by body temperature

- The watch is water resistant

- There are a couple of negatives - It can be a difficult be a different to see unless you are looking directly at it. Also the watch has so many features that can be a bit difficult to navigate

- Can be set for either imperial or metric units

Final Verdict - The Pyle Sports Watch is a lightweight watch that packed with loads of features. The watch isn't perfect, and can be a confusing to navigate but it is an excellent value for the features. It works well as a watch, but it works even better when attached to a carabiner and clipped to a pack.

The altimeter and it's graph work perfectly well and so does the compass. I think the barometer and it's graph work but am not perfectly sure. The thermometer is only is accurate after 15-20 minutes of leaving the watch off you wrist. Even though the watch is quit large it is light weight. The countdown timer, start stop watch, and dual time all work very well. What doesn't work is the power saving mode. The weather prediction indicators are fairly accurate. the strap feels nice and the buttons easy to press, so over all if you don't mind the few problems I would recommend getting this watch

I've been wearing this watch for a solid five weeks now, and it's so far it's held up to my wrist bumping against all sorts of things without so much as a miniscule speck on the glass. The sensors are quite accurate, and can be calibrated with the exception of the thermometer - the only drawback of this watch, really, is the irony of having a wristwatch that tells you the temperature: it's reading will be closer to your skin temperature than the air temperature. But it seems to be functional enough in combination with the barometer for supporting one of the watch's coolest features in my opinion, the weather forecasting system. It's been able to successfully predict the general temper of the weather, even when I'm spending most of my time in class, and it's done this fairly consistently with only the occasional hiccup, like displaying rain on a clearly sunny day. But given time to adjust properly to the atmosphere, I'm sure it would perform a lot better. I'll be able to verify that next time I get a chance to go camping.

DO NOT BUY THIS WATCH! What seems like a good deal becomes an awful one before long! It goes like this:

Day 1: You receive a nice looking watch. Compass, altimeter, clock, etc. function well. It looks cool enough you may wear it to work even. I did.

Day 5: You lightly scrape against something, and are disappointed to see it left a nasty, unremovable scratch on the crown. This would never happen on a decent watch, and you realize this crown is made of some sort of plastic.

Day 10: You apply mosquito repellant (it's an outdoor watch, right), and it eats the lettering off the bezel.

Day 15: You realize the altimeter and barometer don't really work together if you're outdoors, changing elevation, and would still like to know air pressure. The watch will often interpret your elevation change as a barometer change. Just physics, I guess. Sorry about that.

Day 30: You have frequently reset the compass, because flights and things screw it up. But this time, it takes a long time, seems off.

Day 50: Total failure of compass and altimeter/barometer functions. Compass reset no longer works. It just spins around and around. If you're luckier than me, this happens not during a wilderness trip. If it does, I hope you also have a backup analog compass around, because by then you have zero trust in the watch.

Day 55: Back from your trip, you learn that the Pyle warranty is garbage. $10 or 15 to send back a 45 dollar watch, so you can what, get a new one, which you'll also never trust? You realize you've been had, sorta like when you gave some money to a panhandler that clearly didn't need those dollars for gas after all. You just became a little more jaded, a little wiser.

Day 60: You decide the least you can do is warn other potential customers before they inflict this piece of trash on themselves or others (it's nearly Christmas, after all). You briefly consider one of those nice Casio watches, which may actually work longer than a month, but ultimately decide you were better off with your old digital Timex, your very un-fussy and reliable analog compass, a paper or digital map to tell you elevation, and an occasional glance at the sky for hints about upcoming weather.

To anyone that doubts this watch, think again. I see reviews that say the altimeter isn't good and I laugh. I trekked the Himalayas in Nepal up to Annapurna Base Camp. When we arrived the team checked our altitude and this watch was the closest to actual. My watch was within 20 ft accurate the whole trip. Other watches that were $200+ were far less accurate. I would recommend this watch to anyone who hikes, and it is definitely durable. I tested it in the highest mountains in the world, while hiking through snow and ice for days.

Watch works great, but my only complaint is the very dim backlight. Otherwise the altimeter is accurate within 50 feet, compass is spot on, and the thermo is fine if you take the watch off for 20 minutes or so.

I have had the Pyle Paw 1 and liked it a lot for it's cost. The few negatives I have with the PSWWM82 are huge to me. # 1 I find on my watch the barametric tendencies inaccurate and or slow. I have not found the prediction of rain, sun, or sunny cloudy to be on at all. This prediction on the PAW1 was very good, which led me to discover the 2nd negative, the battery. I felt with poor readings the battery was low and began to change it. Easier said than done, changing the battery in the 82 cannot be performed in the field unless you are a skilled jeweller and you carry the tools with you. The instructions do recommend taking the 82 to a jeweller for a battery change and for good reason, it is very difficult and challenging.
I like the appearence, setup, pressure in inches and the User Interface is far superior of that of the PAW1. However, the difficulty of the battery change and lack of a tendency arrow,slow inacurrate barometric readings has forced me to rate this watch low.

A little difficult to set up the barometer and compass, but after some work, this watch is a real treat to have on my wrist. It is pretty bulky, but doesn't look bad.
