2.0 out of 5 stars Good on looks, but doesn't work as described, December 28, 2011
Perhaps my expectations were too high for this product. It sounded like a great watch for an outdoor enthusiast.

First, I found it to be overly heavy for the size of the watch. If not worn tightly it wants to fall around your wrist.

My biggest beef with this product is that the Temperature sensor is influenced by your body heat. Mine reads 80* consistently when worn regardless of temperature. The watch must be removed and let to rest for 5 mins before it will read the real temperature. Timex does not mention this in their pre sale literature.

The compass - ditto. Take it off and set it down flat for it to work accurately. A $0.25 compass will do the same.

The writing on the inner dials is so small you will need a magnifying glass to read it.

Any watch needs to be removed from your body to get a temp reading! The compass works fine(at least mine does) If you didn't read the manual that came with the watch give it a try...it explains alot! I will agree with you the watch is "heavy" and somewhat oversized but it works fine!

Common sense would tell you that the watch needs to be off the body to read properly. I have had MANY Casio's that do the same and all need to be off unless you are under water.
