Summary: I bought this as a gift for my wife and was very pleased with it except i really wish that it displayed the year on the display somewhere but unfortunately it does not and the year can only be seen when setting up the date and time besides that its a very nice watch for a very nice price.
Summary: This is definitely an eye catcher of a watch. I wear it most days and only have problems reading the digits in dimly lit areas - just need to use the backlight. However, the backlight does not always cooperate. Some times I have to touch the screen several times for the light to come on (upper left corner of the screen activates the light after pushing the one side button, which allows you to use the touch screen face).
Summary: I bought this watch for my job, Im a soccer coach, and i was looking for a chronograph watch that was cheap and looks great... I didnt want the regular timex or casio, so I bought this, and it is simply great, other people at my job ask me for more, I order three more for my friends, and we simply love him. Even for a daily watch it is great...
Summary: The watch is nice but it could stand to be a little bigger. In addition, the Red background light is not as bright as say the blue one. Still a decent watch but I would not buy it as a primary watch. It's about number 6 or 7 in my rotation of watches.
Summary: All the reviews on amazon about this watch and the ones like it from Kenneth Cole really make the watch sound worse than it is. Yes, the watch can be hard to read in low light settings, but that's why it has a back light. Any digital watch is hard to read in the dark, this one is no exception. Otherwise, if there is any decent amount of light it's not hard to read.
Summary: His watch is very pretty and elegant, the problem is that first is not unisex, for a woman is way too big and heavy. The other thing i didn't like is that the back light is not very strong so is hard to read.
Summary: The watch is very elegant but not usable. The letters do not show very clearly in day and night. You need to activate the "light" touch sensor and use the light to read the watch all times. The light also stays for a fraction of second. So you may need to use light 2/3 times to read your watch which is kind of weired. How can someone design a watch which cant be read. Not recommended.
The darkness of the time face makes this watch unusable

Summary: Received this yesterday and am disappointed. Although I like the size and colors/style of the watch, the screen is way too dark to be usable as a watch. I suppose the dark face is part of the style they are going for but that doesn't work for me, I would like a watch + fashion not just a fashion piece. There is an option to turn on the light for a few seconds (requires using the side button to activate the touch screen, then pressing the touch screen "light" option).
