not really waterproof.
i thought i found the watch of my dreams! my watch criteria was: 1) large display 2) timer/stopwatch 3) alarm 4) 24 hour ("military time") display 5) cute colors- specifically white! and pink!! 6) waterproof. this watch fit all of the above criteria and got about 3 months of daily use of this watch. and then i took it to the beach. it says 100 meter waterproof on the face! i was in 8 feet of ocean and when i got out the display is all wonky. the numbers aren't showing up properly and the days of the week is not showing up at all. i think it functions ok because i can hear the timer starting and stopping when i press the buttons. but the main idea of a watch is a visual display. this has thrown a huge wrench in my work routine and i am heartbroken that such a fantastic watch didn't live up to it's description. i love this watch so much that i migh just buy a replacement and use it for work only. but i really expected this to be a surf/dive watch and am pretty disappointed. i'll need to find a new beach watch now, too. i highly recommend this if you plan to stay out of the water. if you are looking for something to dive, fish, surf, or swim in- turn back now and save yourself from heartbreak.
