Summary: I bought this about 5 years ago, and it works till today without fail. Just hope it deal with daylight saving automatically,which might be too much too ask, since this watch is not built with the ability to sync with wireless bands. Other than that, the watch is perfect.
Summary: Amazing watch. I was camping this weekend and went swimming, canoeing, sailing, and sat in rain. This watch never came off my wrist. Looks brand new still. Very well made. The compass on the watch did come in handy on a few hikes with maps only.
Summary: I bought two watches, one for me and one for my son who was going into the Marines. This was in late 2008 or early 2009. We both still have our watches five years later and they both still work great. I have not changed the battery on mine!

Summary: its simply one of the best, if not the BEST name brand products that I've always worn either for work, sports, or recreational use. You CAN NOT beat the brand. GREAT! products at very understandable pricing.
Summary: Likes: 1) Pretty accurate compass, what I want in general directional purpose. 2) Glad to have spend few more dollars for the nylon band. Looks durable and comfortable. 3) Easy readout and display. Also as others mentioned, current time is always visible in any function.
Summary: I'm using it from a year ago, and is performing very well. I wear as my daily watch and it has the same look and finish of the first day. Don't like so much its nylon bracelet, because its a little too rigid and always flip the watch under my wrist, which puts it in risk of unnecesary damage when I...
