Summary: The print size was too small and I could not get the thing to work right. Even setting up the time and date was a complete ordeal. I finally succeeded in accomplishing it but couldn't get any further. I thought it defective and returned it. They charged a 50% restocking fee but it may be that was because I did not have the original packaging. As a vendor I think they were very responsive and available. I give them high marks but was not asked to rate them.
Summary: It's gentle, it's huge, it's heavy... I've had two of these they both broke... Maybe you're a little more gentle with your watches than I am, but this thing just didn't work for me, I tried to love it, but my loving is just a little to rough for it.. Pros: Awesome PalmOS universality (full featured organizer with unbelievable support) PalmOS programs - literally bazzilions of them.. Seriously..
Summary: It would be great watch if you could find applications that can be downloaded, added and actually worked. If you ran it in a vanilla mode, then you should be OK. My wife who is also Geek like myself, ditched the watch after wearing it few months. Maybe next version will be better.
Summary: Its kinda cool for a PDA on your wrist, but the battery doesn't last for more than a day at most... I'd use it more if I didn't need to charge it every night. Plus all the data (at least on mine) gets erased if the battery dies. It was a nice try, but not good enough.
Summary: I bought this watch only coz it was cheap like 29.99$. As I like gizmo things so this was a sure buy but after buying the drawbacks were more like very low battery life ...half a day and IR issues. The light is too dim on this watch and takes a while sometimes with the sytlus to get use too.
Summary: Too bad this was an idea that never went anywhere. --Yes, a screen can be too small sometimes. --Battery life 24 hours? Even if 48 hours, that's too short. It would be practical if it needed recharging maybe once a week, like a cellphone.
Summary: I liked this watch, until I got rained on and found out it is not even water resistant. If my son's $5 watch is water proof up to 30 meters, certainly Fossil could have made this watch water resistant for an additional $5. They argue that you should treat it like any other PDA - but it's a watch, too, and people don't usually take off their watches when it rains. Many people don't even take them off when they shower...
Summary: I really like this watch, but battery ruins all the fun. 18 hours is about the most I can get out of it. Other than that, even with basic software that comes with watch it makes a nice secondary PDA. If you don't mind taking your watch off frequvently to recharge, then buy it. If you're the kind of person who really depend on PDA, then do yourself a favor a buy a proper PDA device.
Summary: The PDA itself is OK. The screen is small, but that is to be expected on a Watch. My PDA has a very quite alarm. If it is not held next to my ear, I can't hear it. It has been in our house alarming for an entire weekend with no one noticing! It is much quieter than any watch alarm I have ever had or heard. I suspect it is defective. I have tried to contact Abacus (or Fossil) 3 times regarding this. The first time the service rep said that someone would get back to me.
