Summary: When I first received the watch, I couldn't believe how big the face was. It seemed kind of weird to me when I put it on my wrist... Nonetheless, it is a good watch. I don't know why Phosphor didn't make a back light for this watch (you can't see the time at all in the dark). Nonetheless, it functions properly, and I haven't had any problems with it. I like how you can chance the background of the watch from white to black, and vice-versa.
Summary: I felt in love with the watch first time I saw them and decided I will purchase them instead of newer version of my previous Philippe Starck watch for Fossil. And it is the design you are getting here so keep that in mind. As much as I love the size (I'm female)as the watch covers my whole wrist I need to say that there are few things that are not as great.
Summary: Styling and display technology are somewhat unique - fashionable modern time piece. Setting the time is quite easy. The contrast of the display is not at all as high and sharp as the image shows. The set button to the bottom is not properly fixed and jiggles. Technically speaking I had problems from the first day. The switch from black to white display did not function. Tried it about 50 times before it finally worked.
Summary: I have a kindle and have found it to be excellent, all that they advertise. However, the e-ink technology in a watch face leaves something to be desired. I was very disappointed in the phosphor watch. 1. It is too large, somewhat cumbersome. 2. It is VERY difficult to set. Either the instructions are too vague or the sequence doesn't work well, I think both. 3. There is an annoying flicker and delay when changing function 'pages'. 4.
Summary: Has an amazing screen, it's not quite as dark as they show it in the pictures, but it still blows me away how great it looks. I find myself just starring at it. The head is kind of big, but the strap can adjust for a large wrist to a small wrist. I have a VERY small wrist, and this watch fits me comfortably, and looks stylish. Overall amazing watch, 5 stars. Kind of annoying to set, but once I got the hang of it, it was cool.
Summary: 1- The Black/White contrast is not as strong as the images show. 2- It looks better with black on white. In white on black the black looks more like grey and that doesn't look too great. 3- It once stopped working (black screen) and I had to remove the battery and put it back in. That brought it back to life.\ 4- In the display where you get all info I don't understand why the Date Font is so large and the clock font is so small. 5- The date format is american style i.e.
