Summary: Wanted a watch to replace my old timex. This one had the velcro band and large digits I wanted and couldn't find locally. It does have an annoying habit of day/date hopping. It' annoying but half the time corrects itself.
Summary: I had a cheapo digital watch and although it always worked well, my eyes are getting worse with age, so I was having trouble reading the time, especially in lower light conditions. When I started shopping for watches, I was looking for something that had large digits and also that I could use as a stopwatch for my workouts. I figured if it was easy to read the time on a page full of watch pictures, that would be the one and this one caught my eye immediately.
Summary: This is the third instance of this watch that I have owned. The demise of the previous two instances had nothing to do with the quality of the watch. It is very sturdy. The instance I am about to retire saw me through a year in Afghanistan and is still going despite being beat to heck. I like the multiple alarms. They are actually loud enough to wake me from a sound sleep, something I wouldn't trust other watches to do. No problems swimming regularly with it.
Summary: Hi guys, I bought this watches month ago.Very pleased that I purchased this product. Training every day so using them as every day watch as well.The flix technology works perfect.I know some people complaint about how hard they need to shake the wrist but its not true.Its fine, and think otherwise it would be the waste of battery as they would light up with every move.Very simple to set up,manual easy to read,and lots of functions in them.I chose the Velcro strap as it...
Summary: I was looking for a watch that complimented my run/ walk method that I've been using recently to overcome a niggly illiotibial band problem. I found this watch by chance on youtube. The one I got from ebay was a yellow bezel. Yellow's in for me at the moment. On the video it was specifically using the watch for the run walk system. Lets say you run 4 minutes then walk for a minute. you can set it to loop on those two times beebing at the end of each one.
Summary: As a runner, the one major feature that drew me to this watch more than anything else is the size of the digital display. I want something that I can see at arms length rather than having to lift the watch up to my face. And this is the only watch I've been able to find that has a decent size digital display in the middle of the face rather than at the bottom, as in most digitals, where the day/date/month share equal billing.
