A Fun Conversation Piece, and Good Value,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: HDE Men's Multi Color Equalizer LED Display Square Face Dial Fashion Watch with Leather Wrist Band (Watch)
In the age of smartphones, do you really need a watch? Probably not, so why wear one? To me, that means you have two choices - wear an expensive watch that doubles as a conversation piece, or a unique watch that doubles as a conversation piece. Not having thousands of dollars to spend on a fancy watch, I chose that latter, and in that regard I am happy with this purchase.
The watch displays the current time, as well as the week and date. When you press the top button to check the time, it displays a random light pattern before displaying the time. You can set the watch to light up on certain intervals, adjust the brightness of the lights, and set how long you want the lights to display before shutting off.
The watch arrived in adequate packaging and included decent instructions. I was able to set it with no problem. It keeps time fairly well, although over the course of a few days it seems to have lost a minute or so. Also, the instructions clearly warn that the amount of time you spend with the lights on will directly impact battery life.
For the price, I'm more than pleased with the look of the watch - it appears to have solid construction, and the display works well. The included "genuine leather" band looks OK, but be forewarned you'll need to take some time to break it in. Eventually I'll probably replace it with a better band.
One negative note - the watch band or band (I think it's the band) has a funny smell - almost like lighter fluid. It was strong when I first took the watch out of its packaging, but has gotten less noticeable in recent days.
Finally, know what you are purchasing. You will NOT be able to use this watch the check the time in a dark movie theater. It's not that kind of watch. You WILL get noticed by friends and co-workers for wearing something that is unique.
TLDR: An excellent buy for the money. Recommended.
