Watch is awesome and the flashlight feature was the primary selling point for me. There are a few concerns however,
Unless you turn the backlight on, the watch is really difficult to read even in regular daylight. Even in the image you can tell the time and date aren't the most vivid and bright. Not a huge deal, but it is a concern.
The thermometer is useless if you are wearing the watch. It averages about 10 degrees warmer than it actually is, probably because it picks up my body heat. The manual says you should take the watch off and let it sit for 20 minutes before you can get an accurate reading. Again, not a huge deal as I'm sure the thermometer works, but who wants to have to take their watch off and sit for 20 minutes just to found out how warm it is outside?
This last concern, however, might be a dealbreaker. The strap is a velcro only strap. There is no band that you can tuck the end of the strap to. This results in my watch undoing itself dozens of times throughout the day. The velcro is simply not strong enough to stay in place even during the most mundane tasks (putting on a shirt, brushing up against my leg, playing with my dog). It's a headache and I reached out to Nixon about the issue. They basically told me I would have to ship the watch in on my dollar for them to "maybe" fix it. No thanks.
Basically, if you buy this watch you'll probably love it, but you'll also end up looking for a new band since the one it comes with is not at all secure.
