Big, useful, and good looking.
on December 16, 2012
This is a big watch, but it does what it does well. I wore it exclusively when on vacation on Cape Cod, and it was very useful to have tide information handy at all times.
The temperature is not so useful, since it reads too much of your own wrist temperature. But then, I don't need to know the temperature very often, anyway. But it does seem funny to have to take the watch off for awhile in order to use one of its features.
The compass also came in handy from time to time on the Cape, since often directions are not quite what you think they are. It's cool to have this available on your wrist watch.
It seems to keep good time, as well. It's been running for months and months and is still right on the button.
I'm not entirely happy with only one aspect of the watch. On the white face model that I have, the hour and minute hands are not easy to tell apart from the indicator hand. To my eyes, they're not as distinct as in the photo. It was was my choice, however, to keep it, being aware of this minor problem.
The band is a good complement to the watch. I have gotten quite a few unsolicited compliments about the "cool watch" while wearing it.
Four stars because of the combined inconvenience of the thermometer not being accurate unless the watch isn't worn, and having to peer at the watch to get the time right.
