Rated4out of5byJD2013fromGood Outdoor WatchThis is a good product coming from a reputable brand. The watch is very accurate and has not missed in its set time (had been compared this to an atomic watch). It is water resistant, and the large digits makes the user see it comfortably well. The Indiglo light emits a cool bluish green light that is soothing to the eyes especially in total darkness. The only minor niggle I have with this watch is the manner of operation of its Stopwatch/Lap Time/Reset function. My other digital watches that have chronograph function uses one button to start and stop the counter, and a separate button to reset it. The way this handles it is one button handles the Start and Split function and another button for Stop and Reset. It's a bit confusing for me personally but that's something that I can get adjusted to later on.
A solid watch worthy to be recommended especially to those outdoor and fitness aficionados.

Rated5out of5byRanch Hand HikerfromGreat WatchI have only had this watch for a few hours, but thus far it's working exacting as I was wanting/expecting it to. I have smallish wrists and it is a bigger watch, but it doesn't feel at all bulky. All of the listed features work well and are easy to use, I did read the instructions and have experimented using everything. The indiglo light can be made to stay on for 3 seconds whenever any button is pushed, I like this as I have the black version which has a dark background and light numbers/letters. I haven't had difficulty reading it, but the automatic indiglo helps in lower light and doesn't hinder in brighter light. I like that this watch has an hourly chime, but it takes a little digging to turn it on/off and I don't like having it on while I sleep. I'm very happy so far, hopefully it holds up well.
