The countdown timer - this is why we love this watch. You push a single button once and a timer is set for 1 minute, each time you press the button, the time increases 1, 3, 5, 10, 15, 20, 30 then reset. It's not too terribly loud. I have used this since my kids were babes, through time-outs, and we have X minutes until we leave. I've never had this feature go out on the watch so the button and electronics must be pretty good.
The price - I can afford to keep a backup on hand
The band - I have actually preferred the metal band and haven't had any trouble with it. I have a very small wrist so it may make a difference having the extra wrap portion underneath. The plastic band on the LA11WB-1 tends to break on me fairly quickly. I do have the LA11WB-1 as my backup in my jewelry box - just in case.
Overall - This watch is a little prettier than the plastic band. It still is a little "geeky" but more appropriate for business attire.
No light - Not a good watch for dark areas.
As I get older, the little bars across the top that indicate time remaining get harder and harder to see.
This is not a watch to pass down to your grandchildren. The other model typically lasts about 1/2 - 2 years. I would assume this watch will be comparable but we'll see after they've been out a couple of years. When the battery goes out, I've had about a 50% success rate of having a replacement battery work. The batteries are a pain to get to, it's hard to find a place that is familiar with this watch, that has the battery, and will replace it. Any other problems that might arise cost far more than the replacement cost.
Recommendation: Buy 2 - one of each style so you'll have a backup.
To reitereate, this is a very smart & sweet looking watch, and also is all metal and digital, which are both rare at this size. However, the negative aspects are: no light, no date, and the clasp comes apart very easily. The description gives the erroneous impression the strap is the expansion type, but in fact it is a metal strap with a clasp that can slide up & down one arm, to a length that fits you.
I can see why one of the previous reviewers lost her watch: it is very easy not to snap the clasp closed properly. It came apart on me more than once and, the watch being so light, it is quite easy not to notice it has gone!
I like the watch but am very disappointed with the strap. I did consider getting a genuine expansion one which was what I had been looking for, but this turned out to cost more the the watch itself! If, like me, you are looking for a watch with an expansion type strap, Timex does them much better but unfortunately, and disappointingly, does not do them in digital form....
Nonetheless, this is the Little Watch that could, and I depend upon it every day of my life for its best feature, a countdown timer that you can set with only 1 click. You don't have to search through various functions. It's right there on the face. With one click it rings after 3 minutes, 2 clicks gets you 5 minutes, 3 clicks for 10 minutes and so on up to 30 minutes. This function is a timer, an alarm and a reminder all in one.
To function as a mother with kids and multiple other responsibilities, when much is going on at once, I can just click twice for 10 minutes so that I will be reminded of what I was thinking about when things calm down. Or, I can remind myself to get back to the stove in 20 minutes as I walk away to take the phone call. If I am supposed to leave for the doctor in 30 minutes, but I know that there will be multiple distractions I can click away and know that I will be reminded to go while there is still time. If I do meditation I set it for 20 minutes. If the children get a time out I set it for 3 minutes so I can turn away and do something else. The needs are endless.
And I get older, my memory is only going to get worse, so while things will calm down, my need for reminders will only increase.
It's a great watch. There is no reason why it can't be an elegant watch too. Digital watches do not have to look clunky. Right, Casio?
Hope this review helps,
