Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I too bought this as a silent alarm, but I am enjoying the additional features (such as moon phase). This watch is an embarrassment of riches: I can't believe there are five alarms, back lighting, timers, water resistance, and all the hunting and fishing settings for such a little price! I've previously paid twice as much for a Timex Indiglo that did less. I wish I'd had this watch when I was in the army.
I would give this watch five stars if the settings were more intuitive. I had to sit with the instruction booklet to program it to my location; I also needed the instructions to set the alarms. Neither task was too hard, but usually I can figure such things out on my own. This watch isn't that simple.
By the way, this watch is too big for my wrist both in dial-size and strap length (I'm a 5'10" woman), and it's extremely homely. However, I don't think that should be held against a men's hunting/fishing watch. All in all, this watch is very pleasing.

"Extremely homely"! Hilarious. Thanks for saying this because I wondered how it could work as an everyday watch. Probably not unless I hunt for a living.

Maybe if you hid it under your sleeve. The band is camo and brown leather, and the dial is large, multi-colored, and covered with buttons (one of which is orange). Not exactly a Rolex!

Thanks very much for the added description. I can't exactly wear this and have it slide out from my under my shirt sleeve when meeting clients. I really appreciate your comments on this product.
