        • Day Trips

        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.

        Overall, Good

        By 

        from South Carolina

        Verified Reviewer

        Pros

        • Accurate
        • Rugged

        Cons

        • Day of Week
        • Finish
        • Wrist band

        Best Uses

          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.

              BIG MISTAKE

              By 

              from KY

              Verified Reviewer

              Pros

              • Compass is great

              Cons

              • Band is thin and cheap
              • Not rugged
              • Not shock resistant
              • Over all Disappointment
              • Weather is a joke

              Best Uses

                Lacrosse Advertises this watch as being something it isn't! I've wanted one for a long time and was excited when it arrived.But after a week I realize just how much I got took. I should have purchased CASIO!!!!!!!!!!!! Please don't make my mistake!!!! the weather icon is a joke, it is totally inaccurate, the altimeter is a joke also along with the barometer. I just purchased a watch with a compass and a thin cheap band with a really cheap buckle. Casio has got this beat by a mile. Lesson learned too late.
