I received this watch for Christmas from my daughter who happens to share my prime account on Amazon. We all agree not to look at the"My order" list between Thanksgiving and Christmas. .
It was a bit small, so I went to the company web site and learned that they will send out extra links free of charge for any of their watches. It took about 10 days to get the links. I then took my watch to a watch repair place to have it fitted. I was told that plastic link watch bands are tricky to put on, and while this watch is a corn resin based band, they still considered it plastic. They charge as much as $30 to do that, and I ended up paying $20 to have the extra link added.) Perhaps my husband who just had eye surgery could have done it....but I am glad a had a professional add the link. The company sent three links in the package.My wrist was measured and it is now the best fitting watch I own.

I just reviewed an Armitron watch. Those watches are built like tanks (and have a few neat designs with quality features) and have a comparable price tag. Granted Sprout has the unique aspect of being eco-friendly (bands are made from corn resin), but by feel alone, the watch looks & feels like the cheapest "toy" watch on the planet. Sure it's cute. But I think that's where it begins & ends. I'll be keeping the watch -- because I like the design -- but truthfully I don't expect it to last very long. We'll see. Ohh, I've read that Sprout bands run small. I don't have dainty wrists & I still needed to have a link removed for a semi-loose fit.
