Showing 1-10 of 21
Good watch for the money.
29 January 2012
Summary: I just got my second one of this watch after 4 years. First one the battery died, I replaced the battery but the watch was dead. I was suprised it lasted that long so I didn't complain about buying another one for 20 bucks.
Cons: came with a velcro band.. unexpected as the picture was vague and didn't show it nor was it stated in the description. my original forester came with a buckle band. would not have bought had i known. also the hands are difficult to see with the night light as they aren't solid
Summary: It's fairly good watch for it's cheap price. But, BIG BUT, do NOT wear it for swming or taking shower. Water does go inside the watch and leaves evaporates under the face of the watch for days. It's so thick that you can't read the time a few days at least.
Summary: Durability, longevity, reliability, cheap, effective. I had this watch for 2 1/2 years before it crossed the line of no return. It had worn and ripping Velcro, flecks of paint, scratches, and it was on it's 3rd battery but it was a reliable little watch.
Summary: I bought this a while ago after looking around for about a week and it seemed like the best watch for the money. It's small, stylish and sturdy. The light function works great and the day dial is very convenient. The Velcro isn't my favorite, but it's still comfortable.
Summary: If you want a solid titanium dive watch with tritium face then look elsewhere. However, I've worn this for two years and it's a good-looking (understated/military-style), lightweight watch that doesn't cause reflections or glow (unless you want it too, and then it's bright).
Summary: This is my second Forester watch. The first Forester Analog still runs afer many years but the face is too marked up to tell time. I like the looks, the light, the strap and etc. The price was good and I found it on Amazon,a plus. I am a happy camper.
Summary: Honestly, when seeing this watch in the images I thought it would be a real sport watch. The one to inspire trust and resistance. Unfortunately it looks like a toy and I fear it works like one, too. It's cute, small, almost like a dame watch, and it feels like you don't have anything on your wrist.
Summary: I picked this up from Walmart near the same cost. With all the watches to look through in the carousel, I kept coming back to this one. I needed something to replace a nice simple Timex that broke after a couple years.
