Didn't last a year
on June 6, 2012
Here's the review I wrote after buying it: Really nice watch, but big. Strap is very long. I am 5'9 male, slim athletic build, the excess strap goes three quarters of the way to the face. Can't tell from the pictures on line how huge it is. Measurements on site are not meaningful. Should have a picture on average wrist, showing how weight and height of model. I returned it and kept the 233XLTTM, which is somewhat smaller, but still big.
Here's my update, 13 months later: It was great for a year, but then the metal band started to fray in three places on the side: the metal is sticking out: looks ugly, but more important, there are loose metal strands protruding which dig into anything it touches, like my sleeves. No longer wearable. I will write to the company to see if they will stand by it and post an update.
