Summary: Finding a good watch can be a problem for me. I have really bad nickel allergies - and for those of you who have the same problem, you know what I mean. Everything is at least coated with a nickel solution to give it that extra shine - even the backs of watches. Buying a watch with metal allergies can be a bear: you're either stuck with nothing or something bulky with fabric on the back.
Summary: I had gotten my sprout watch because it was a very cute watch for good price. The only problem I had with it is was that I hadn't worn it for long but I had already started to break. The adjustment hole that I had used had started to fray and the glue on the side had started to wear off! Yes, it's great that it's eco-friendly but I think that what had caused the problem. The "certified organic cotton" is not strong enough for everyday uses!
Summary: I received one of these watches as a gift and really loved it. It is comfortable to wear with the cotton strap and keeps perfect time. I like the idea of it being eco-friendly and the packaging is clever and bio-degradable. I have now given this watch as a gift to others and will be purchasing more for myself and others.
Summary: I got this watch as a gift. It is very cute and it is great that it is all green. It does feel like a watch that cost $24! Very lightweight too. It is comfortable to wear, I feel like I am going to break the latch when I put it on or take it off. But, like I said you sort of get what you pay for. Overall, it is a cute eco watch that is very inexpensive. I would buy a couple more in different colors though!
Summary: The watch is very cute, and, well, tells the time. I love the eco-friendly attributes of it, which are a nice touch. However, only three days after buying it, I broke it. Now I totally blame myself for nervously picking at it, but I would have liked it to have lasted forever... Even though the clasp is busted, I still wear it everyday. Perhaps it is meant to be more of an occasional wear, instead of a 24/7 watch.
Good, but not holding up to normal wear and tear very well

Summary: I've only had this watch for a few months and the watchband is already looking very thread-bare where it gets thread through the "buckle". Also the green around the outside of the crystal is scratching off very easily. I bought this for a fun watch and it is, just wish it was holding up better. I don't wear it everyday either!
Summary: I was really pleased with this watch. The packaging even converts into a planter & comes with grass seeds! I love that the watch is so easy to use, cute and the colors are so pretty. Not to mention its completely biodegradable.
