Summary: I bought this watch for a deployment to Iraq. The watch itself is pretty decent, easy to read at night, and it still looks new despite being exposed to severe environmental conditions including high humidity, dust storms, daily 120 degree temps, and the abuse one could expect from a soldier's watch.
Summary: After reading the negative reviews about this watch I was a liitle concerned. I had a shark watch when I was younger that I loved so I figured I would bit the built. It's really nice and I have got a few positive comments on it so far. The dial is easy to read for me.
Summary: I bought this as a knockaround watch so I wouldn't keep scratching up my good watches. Package arrived on time with no issues - now for the good (or bad) part. The watch itself is a little thicker than I expected. There were no instructions in the package on how to set anything.
Summary: I really like the look of this watch but it did not survive its only boat trip. I wore the watch wakeboarding (which I have done with my old watch for 5 years with no problems) and water got into the case. This caused the watch to stop working and to randomly chime/alarm.
Summary: I bought this watch specifically for lap swimming, and after about two months the digital part (the reason I bought it) went blank. I guess I could send it back to be fixed, but it is just not worth the trouble.
Summary: well, hopefully most people won't find the watch to be as bad as I did. But, out of the box, the analog clock wasn't working, we found it impossible to set the digital clock, the instructions were hidden and took us a long time to find, and...
Summary: This watch is a great for outdoorsy types that like a little style added to function. I have had this watch for about a month now, and not a single major complaint. The watch is nice and weighty, and feels like a much more expensive watch based on product build and features.
Summary: This is one of the best looking watches I've found and most definitely for the price. It has the weight and feel of a watch that costs much more. That said, I had no idea how difficult it would be to read the digital functions as a result of the black background and obstructing hands that constantly...
Summary: This is a decent looking watch that works well. I've used it while surfing 67 times during the past three months and it still looks brand new. Read the manual to extend the life of the seals i.e. the seals don't like extremely temps such as in hot tubs.
