Worth what you're paying; sturdy build, but poor design
on April 28, 2017
So I've had this watch for a little less than a week now. I bought it mostly because I broke my old watch and I needed something to tide me over until I made my mind up on a nicer watch to wear more permanently.
With that in mind I would say this a decent watch. So far it is just about meeting my expectations. It's nice and light and relatively comfortable, though I did have some issues with it tugging at my arm hairs the first day I wore it. It's also still working even though I regularly wash my hands with it on, so it is about as Water Resistant as it claims to be.
My two biggest complaints regarding this watch are the lighting and the wrist band adjustment. The band is wickedly difficult to figure out and as far as I could tell there were zero instructions in the manual regarding it. Once you figure it out it's then another challenge to actually get it to stay on your wrist. I would just say it's relatively poor industrial design, but that's just my opinion. The lighting on this watch sucks. If it is important to you to be able to read this watch very clearly in the dark, find something else. My light barely lights up the hour well, the minute you can sort of read, but forget about seconds. The button for it is also kind of challenging to press and that just shouldn't be an issue.
All-in-all if you're looking for an inexpensive watch this isn't a bad choice. Just know what the flaws are before going in to buy it.
