Summary: I bought this as a gift for myself for Christmas. I think it will also be a decent one as a gift for others. I love the design. The longer I wear this watch, the more I'm getting fond of it! It looks very nice and comfortalbe wearing it. There are something to mention when you want to buy it for hiking, camping. The twin sensor is not very accurate. The digital compass works well outdoor but not indoor.
Summary: The compass works great. There is a setting to adjust for declination (which you can find on online) so you can get true north or you can opt for magnetic north. The compass shows heading and north for about 5-6 seconds, then the compass turns itself off. I don't know if that is something that saves power or improves accuracy. I presume it was designed that way.
Summary: My husband was looking forward to getting this watch because of all the cool things it could do. Since Christmas he has had to recalibrate the thing three times. When it needs to be done the whole watch says cal so you can not see the time. Other then that it is pretty cool that the watch will tell you what the temp is. I am sure that when he finally gets it set up right it will be a nice tool for the outdoors.
Summary: The watch was purchased with my trip to Hawaii in mind. I wanted a watch that had the ability to take some rough treatment and that had certain features. The compass and the temperature features along with the time zone changes were perfect. The watch performance exceeded my expectations in all aspects and was certainly a bargain at the price. Your could spend a lot more more and yet only have the same features.
Summary: Everything works great with the watch except the thermometer. To get any accuracy, you have to take it off and wait probably 10-20 minutes for it to give a stable temperature so it's not very useful. If I did it over again, I probably would have got a smaller watch in size and did without the thermometer.
Summary: Cool watch with great functions, specifically the digital compass. The compass is extremely accurate and very useful on hikes and long out of bounds bike rides. The thermometer is a good function as well, but is not accurate when the watch is being worn. The only negative aspect of the watch that I found was the flimsy band, its plastic and not rubber. Changed the band out for a NATO band and its a big improvement.
Summary: I have not taken off the watch since I got it. It is an awesome watch. Sadly after walking through a metal detector, and passing by an X-ray machine the digital compas stopped working. I misplaced the receipt. No receipt no warranty service.
Summary: This is a good watch for camping and outdoors. However I am not to crazy about the band. The retainer for the band overlap is always slipping and exposing the band overlap. Also the thermometer is not very accurate.
