4.0 out of 5 stars Good watch for the price - but with a few caveats, May 30, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Adidas Men's ADH4003 Black Peachtree Digital Watch (Watch)
Full featured watch, with a very cool interface. Two time displays (good for travelling), chronograph, countdown timer, and four alarms in an attractive, water resistant design, all for around $40.00. In the two days I've owned it, I've taken it paddleboarding and on a ten mile hike (with multiple river crossings), and it has held up well. Two things I wish were better:

1) The screen -- Dark display with low contrast means that the display is somewhat difficult to see. Works fine outdoors (but still a little dark), but I can see how this can bother a lot of people.

2) The buttons -- They are large and stick out, leading to lots of accidental pushes. While hiking, I had to get into my backpack several times, and when I put my backpack on, the shoulder strap kept hitting and activating the buttons.

Other than these two gripes, I like the watch. I've been looking for a reverse LCD watch in a simple package that I can wear both at the office and outdoors. The Casio G series watches are attractive, but they are simply too bulky (one of the ones I looked at was 3/4 of an inch thick!) and had too many extraneous design features (bulky case was too loud for my taste). The Peachtree has similar features as the G series watches, in a simpler, minimalist case, at half the price. If you can live with the two issues I listed above, you will be happy with this watch.
