Great features - bad back light
on May 13, 2007
This watch has the perfect features for me. It has multiple alarms, and even some special occasion alarms for one time future alarms. I like the three alarms and the alarm features like weekday only or weekend only settings.
The bad news is that back light is basically useless except in total darkness. This watch does not utilize the highly effective Indiglo backlight. It uses a backlight process that lights only the numbers. The problem is that the lighting is far from bright enough to be used in anything but total darkness. In dusk or dawn conditions, initiating the backlight make the numerals totally invisible.
I only gave this 4 stars, since I have come to know when I can use the backlight, and am comfortable with that.
