Overall, Good. I have had the watch for about 8 years. Time keeping--excellent. Weather based on variations of barmetric pressure--okay. Finish: For the first 3 years, I did a lot of outside work with a lot of sweating. Appearance is now rough and worn. However, all functions on the watch still work. I replaced the band after about 3 years. Calendar does not recognize leap year. I had to set the year as 2014 to get the day of the week right.
Passed my test. Got this about 4 years ago, and at first thought it was neat, but wouldn't last. It's now on its third battery, and has yet to give me any trouble. I'll admit that I don't use most of the functions, but the times that I have checked them against accurate sources, they have been amazingly close. I wear this watch to work, and though it's been exposed to everything under the sun (including gasoline) and bashed against everything, it still functions. My only complaint is that the mode button on the front is easy to accidentaly hit.
Really Cool, Highly Technical. Elevation, Barometric Pressure, Compass, On the spot Weather, Stop Watch, Timer, Alarms. Great things: Reliable, accurate, good design, Water Resistant band, Radio controled time for accuracy. Things that aren't so great: NA I saved all my money this summer to buy this watch. Review done with Dad!
Rock solid after years of use. I've had this clock for a few years now and have had no issue at all. In fact, I love the fact that it give various weather information. I can tell when humidity is up. When it's raining (on rare occasion). And it unbelievably survives the Vegas heat. I will suggest setting it under an eve or in a spot that's expose to the open, but shaded to get the best temperature and weather readings. I found it highly accurate out of the sun. In the sun, it would say the weather was dry when there was slight humidity.
Good temperature station. I use this unit to monitor indoor humidity and outside temperature. The signal strength from the outside sensor is good. The little man that changes clothes depending on the outside temperature is cute but it takes up too much room on the display.It would be better to have larger numbers instead.
