totally cool watch
10 December 2011
Summary: okay, only had this watch for a couple weeks, but as other reviews have said, this watch gets noticed. in the past couple weeks since it arrived, I've had so many people comment or ask about the watch ... from co-workers to wait staff to people in a store. truly an eye catcher and conversation starter. so be warned: if you don't like attention, do not get this watch! minor nits ...
Summary: My watches didn't work for even a year. One night it's just stopped. Tech support don't answer my e-mails, so my watches are $185-garbage now. I'm very disappointed. I don't recommend to buy this.
Summary: The watch is really cool looking. Everyone asks me about it, and where it's from. The numbers do have lines from previous numbers.. but only when you look at it close. doesnt bother me. The screen is big and glass... but i have banged it against things, and scratched it against things and i see absolutely no scratches or scuffs... it is very very strong. My complaints: 1. It does not show the date. You have to press the side button till you get to the date. 2.
Summary: The display and design is so clean that I'm willing to put up with the fact that it is so big and chunky. For a display technology that is so thin and light, it's a shame the watch is bigger and heavier than most mechanical watches. As others have noted, the display does have tiny imperfections if you look closely, but I figure if you bought this watch, being an early adopter was probably one of your motives, and seeing the strengths and limitations of the technology is...
Summary: My first time to ever return a product from Amazon. But the display was defective. I see others have made comments about pixels not working, I think its more serious then just a bad pixel. More like dozens of pixels. I also found the watch box poorly packaged and it was clearly able to bounce around during shipping. Strange also no paper work enclosed too. Usually something is enclosed for watches of a lessor price.
Summary: When I bought this watch it was very nice and I liked it, except for the non back light but I got over that. The problem I (had) and I mean (had) is that the arm band kept falling off. I had the watch for a total of one month, and it fell off 8 times. One evening out it fell off again and I never felt it, so the watch is gone and that's $175 I will never see again. That was the first watch I have ever bought.
Summary: I had to debate how to rate this watch for a couple days. I decided to break it down Pros and Cons style - PROS- 1- The innovative e-ink technology gives this watch a style and look not seen outside of e-readers. If you're looking for a conversation starter, this is probably a good choice. 2- Large display. Knowing the time is easy with the massive display that the Phosphor's have. 3-The hybrid analog/digital mash up display (shown in the picture) is cool to look at.
Summary: This watch is so unique and special that everyone asks about it. The leather band is also an excellent choice for me that I feel comfortable wearing it all day. The only disadvantage would be the battery case is not build inside the watch but outside from the bottom, so basically the watch surface is not arched and attached directly to my wrist. Which is different than I thought when I bought it. Other than this, I am very satisfied with this watch.
Summary: This is a really different, striking watch. I love the black/orange colorway of the strap. The e-ink panel is set very close to the crystal so that it looks almost level with the surface of the watch. Functions are pretty basic: analog display (hour in analog/minutes in digital) and fully digital. A single alarm. And date. No seconds display, dual timezone, stopwatch, etc. You can invert the display so that it has a black background and grey digits, or vice versa.
