Best built, nicest-looking watch for the money.
on February 18, 2016
This is a great watch for the price. At $28, it is better looking and higher quality construction than most others in the price range or even in a much higher price range. I originally purchased it at Walmart about 18 month ago and like many of the reviewers have said, the band started cracking this week. A replacement band is $22 and since I have managed to scratch the face of the watch, for $6 more I just ordered a whole new watch. Kind of a shame, but the economics its work out that way. If I had paid the list price of $50+ for it originally, I still think it would be worth replacing the band and keeping it. I also want to point out that I typically replace a watch band at least once a year, so compared to other more expensive watches I have owned, the band that everyone is so critical of actually performed better than I normally see. I think the main gripe is really that you can't but a $8 generic replacement band for it and have to get the one specifically made for it. I personally have no complaints about the watch or the band, but if you plan to replace the band on this watch, just expect to pay a little more.
About the watch itself: this is a great looking, extremely solid watch. I am very hard on watches and this one has stood up to a lot of abuse with a surprisingly low number of scratches to the face (see picture).
I have to admit that the appearance was a big part of why I decided to get this watch. The band that everyone seems to hate is unique because it integrates with the rounded bezel for a very smooth, sleek look.
If I completely honest, I have to admit that the smaller dials are too small to be real useful, especially if your vision is not great, but I like the appearance more than I care about the small dial functions.
This watch had never given me any trouble. The battery is still going strong after a year and a half, and I have worn it in the shower and swimming without any moisture problems. This is hands-down the best watch I have ever owned I'm this price range, and even for several times the price of this one. You won't be disappointed with it.
