Good for Showing Off,
This review is from: GGI International MLEDLAVABB 25 MM Stainless Steel Black Watch Bracelet. (Watch)
I gave this watch 4 stars for the style.
Functionality wise only, it would be 2.5-3 stars.
This watch was given to me as a gift. It's quite big on me, as I'm a 20-something girl. The timepiece alone covers my whole wrist. People who are paying attention get very inquisitive about it. Their impressions are mixed, but they are usually quite happy to so see the way it lights up when you press the button. When the button isn't pressed nobody really can tell it's a watch at all. That is, unless, they have this watch. It can be stylish if you have a good outfit to wear with it.
It is sensitive to water, so if you get a few drops on it the watch will stop working for a few hours but it will return to life later. The metal color has started to rub off after only a few months of occasional use. Additionally the buttons that adjust the time are more sensitive than they should be so I find myself having to adjust the time more often than I'd like. The 12-hour setting on the watch can be difficult to read at times. The apostrophe mark/line that appears when the watch is on PM somewhat deters the readability of the watch with certain numbers next to it. There aren't any problems in 24-hour mode or when it is in AM for the 12-hour.
In general.. this watch is great for occasional use when you want to add a certain kind of modern flair to your outfit. I can't really recommend it for everyday use, as it is heavy. If it doesn't fit your properly, you will experience a bit of sweat and watch marks on your wrist. It does make a good gift despite its flaws because it is a unique piece.

I purchased this watch for my husband. The watch does not stay on all the time, but only lights up when you press the button. I'm sorry to hear about your back and hope you feel better soon.
