Great Face! Terrible band.,
This review is from: Armitron Sport Men's 408159BLK Chronograph Black Strap Digital Display Watch (Watch)
The face is large and easy to read. I can read and manupulate the watch controls without my reading glasses.
The band is not cheap but is poorly designed. The velcro closer is made so that it catches on anything, like a pant leg, and flies off my body. I will have to replace the band immediately.
I bought the watch only a few days ago so I cannot comment on the durability of the watch.

Can the band be replaced with another type or is the band it comes with proprietary and only replaceable with another just like it?

Yes, I believe you can remove the band and use a generic Velcro band if you can find one. I thought about doing that but got tired of the watch before I ever got around to changing it. The watch is cheap enough that you could just try it. Good luck.

I love the watch(Ive bought two)very durable and tough,Im a firefighter and use it for work,however the band is TERRIBLE!
The band works well at first but after awhile the velcro loses it's ability to stick and the design of the band makes it hard to replace.
I had to cut the band off and relace it with a generic velcro band,functional but not as sharp as the original.
Again,love the watch....HATE the band

The band works perfectly for me and since I probably won't take it off more than once every few months I don't foresee any problem.
