I have had the watch now for about a week and have no real complaints. I will probably change the band out at some point, but the liquid rubber band is very comfortable. The watch is lighter than I originally thought it would be, but probably due to the titanium construction. It is also thicker than my other watches and have bumped it several times, but no indication of any marks yet on the case.
I did have to calibrate the compass (very simple), but afterwards it aligned perfectly with my Silva. It will work well as a quick reference. The altimeter obviously requires some knowledge of how it works, to understand how your altitude is determined. It is interesting to see the pressure change as weather rolls through. Calibration to known elevations is required if you want accurate readings. I do wish the compass and altitude hands glowed in the dark, but more as a novelty.
Amazon is an authorized Citizen dealer, so warranties are still good. It also came with a 10% discount (don't know why) and included free overnight shipping! Thanks Amazon! Although it would be cooler if you flew it to me with a drone...
