Great all-around daily wearer and workout watch, be aware it is NOT made in USA
on December 13, 2016
I've used this same model watch for 7 or 8 years now, replacing every 2 or 3 years because of the (well-documented) band issues, or most recently the bezel breaking off in two stages. Despite these frailties, it's a great watch for all sports including swimming and running, or just to use as your daily watch. Not clunky at all, unlike many Ironman-type watches, and comfortable enough to keep on 24/7, i.e. sleeping, showering, etc.
Imo wearing it 24/7 is guaranteed to extend the life of that band--unlike repeatedly taking it off/putting it back on. If I could just remember to take it off when I do punishing stuff like work under my car, etc., I might be on just my second one rather than my fourth one. It's still worth it though!
NOTE: The current Amazon description incorrectly says "Made in USA" (insert buzzer sound here).
The label on the one I just got says:
- Movt China/Mvt CN
- Strap China/Bracelet CN
- Assy Phillipines/Assy PH
