This watch is the perfect size, is the optimal weight and has the best display. The watch is neither big and bulky, nor small and flimsy. The numbers are large and readable. There is green reflective coating on the inside that "illuminates" the watch without using the battery/indiglo feature. This only works in the day when there is light to hit it just right for the reflection, but never the less it is a great feature making the time come alive. The indiglo lighting is awesome and brighter and better than any of the G-shocks I own. This watch is better in every aspect than any of G-shocks I own.
What I like about this watch:
It is extremely light (compared to my G-shocks).
The numbers are all big an easily read.
It is easy to set the time, date and alarm.
The buttons are responsive and easy to push.
It is fairly stylish and has a nice design.
What I don't like about this watch:
Nothing. For the $32 I paid in store, I don't care what happens to it. Mowing the lawn...Working on the car....Running 5 miles...I use it and abuse it and am not afraid of ruining it, unlike my G-shocks. This watch is just made to be worn with its great functionality and its sleek design.
Buy it and try it. Chances are, if you are looking for an all around great watch, you won't be disappointed.
After nearly 30 months of daily use, this watch has finally bit the dust. I used this watch every single day as an alarm clock. I used the indigo light every day, multiple times, more so than the average person would.
The first thing to break was the part you tuck the watch strap into. I broke after approx. 28 months of use. The little plastic band cracked. I used a heavy duty rubberband in its place.
At around the same time, the battery started to lose its power. The indigo feature lit up the display, but the time would not be shown.
Just as of yesterday the wrist band tore in half. Now the only chance for salvage is to buy a new band ($10-$15) and to have the battery replaced ($5-$10), which I will do.
The face of the watch has held up perfectly, even though I have abused it.
It is a pain to change the battery and to track down a watch strap, but the size, display, reflective lighting, etc. is too good to not keep this watch.
I'll let you know how long the next one keeps ticking...
