I'll start by saying that if you want a great looking, solidly built watch with a few cool features, this piece is worth it. I get plenty of compliments and love the way it looks. The temperature is a cool, and fairly useful feature, particularly for camping and other outdoor activities. Though obviously you cannot wear it for an ambient temperature reading. I have concerns as to the accuracy of the compass, however. It seems to me that it is usually 3-6 degrees off, which makes it somewhat useless for orientation. I have a good deal of experience in using a compass for navigation, and I can say confidently that this compass just isn't good for more than finding general cardinal directions. That said, it's not terrible, just mediocre, and the computer controlled hand is really cool. In another review someone mentioned it is difficult to read time - I find this to be very true when using the indiglo at night. This is my first watch with a leather band, so not sure how I feel about it. Love the look, but the watch tends to slide to one side of my wrist, which I suspect is due to the stiffness of the leather. All in all, I'm quite pleased with this watch, and happy I purchased it. If the compass was within 2-3 degrees accurate, and not 3-6, I would have given it four stars.
