I had my older Romanson watch for more than 7 years until the metal band broke just recently. I decided it was probably time to buy a new one and found this one with a decent price and look with pretty well reviews from other buyers. So, I didn't hesitate to place an order and thanks to Amazon Prime, I got it after two days, but to the disappointment that the battery had already died. Having no experience of opening the back cover of any watches let alone replacing the battery, I took the watch to Wal-Mart, but they didn't know how to open the back cover (like it was rocket science!) The manual that comes with the watch doesn't say a word on how to do it and the jewelry shop in our small town was closed for the day. I decided to give it a try and boom! In a few seconds I opened the back covers of my both watches and replaced the battery from the older one to the new one in a nick of time. So, for less than 10 bucks, I got a new watch and learned changing battery for wrist watches.
The package that the watch came in was just a poor quality inside an Amazon box. This, the already dead battery and the fact this watch doesn't show the date are the reasons that I am not giving this watch five stars. So far, the watch is working as expected, though: showing me the time.
I downgraded this watch from 4 stars to 1, because the watch keeps stopping very often. I am getting sick and tired of adjusting the time every now and then and find out that it's not working again. Frustrated!
