Summary: While the functions of the watch (usually) work, there are a couple of annoying features that have me looking for another watch. The primary annoyance is the time of the backlight - it's only about 2 seconds long and it's not adjustable. There is also no long click to make the light stay on.
Great watch, good layout of functions, temp control is off.

Summary: So everything works great on this watch except the temperature control - thus my review will be short and to the point. You will get a watch with very good layouts, a compass, one that is not to large or small, a good back-light, but with a bad temperature reader. The temp.
Summary: Overall, this is a good watch for the price. It is light weight and seems pretty durable. However, I have set the sensors and the compass is not always on the money. The biggest criticism I can give this watch is that the buttons are set in a very bad position.
Summary: To start, I love this watch. It does everything I want a watch to do and does so rather well. The countdown timer in particular is completely invaluable to me, and I use it on a daily basis. The compass and thermometer are both pretty much gimmicks.
Summary: All functions seem to work as advertised. All I really needed was a watch to give me the day, date. and time. This it does. The compass is a bonus. The temperature gives my arm temperature not the ambient temp as has been previously mentioned.
Summary: Overall the watch is great but if the reason for purchase is to have a compass in handy, I would reconsider because the compass requires recalibration every 100 days. Other that that the size of the watch and remaining functions are great for the price.
