Great aside from Thermometer

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Great watch, fits comfortably. Stylish. Gets lots of compliments. My only knock is the thermometer doesn't ready accurately on your wrist. Body heat influences it and reads around 89 degrees on my wrist typically. If you take it off and let it sit for 10 minutes or so it will give a more accurate reading (within 2-3 degrees).

Love it

I really loved this watch. It had become my favorite. It did have a technical issue and quit working but backcountry replaced it free of charge.

I'm looking for a knock around watch for my boyfriend and I have 2 quick questions for you:
1- is there a way to set the time to a 24-hour clock?
2- is there a function/button to press to get a quick read for Zulu time?
Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks.

Quite the watch

I was torn on purchasing this watch because the velcro strap. Whenever I think of a velcro strap on a watch, I think old man style. I decided to get it anyway, and I was not disappointed. The velcro strap was much sturdier than I had imagined. The compass, flashlight and temp work perfectly. The screen is heavy duty and I don't feel like I have to be gentle with this watch at all. Overall, I am more than satisfied with my purchase.

Nice watch, but had to return

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I purchased this watch as a gift. My son was so surprised, he has been wanting this watch for awhile. Once he opened it, we noticed that there was 3 marks on the face of the watch. We thought maybe it was dirt or something. Under more inspection, it appeared to be actual chips or something under the glass. He said that it would be ok and wasn't too bothersome since it wasn't in the way of reading anything. Well as the day went on it seemed like more chips started happening and was now covering more of the watch. So i have to return it, unfortunately, and either get an exchange or refund or try to find it at a store in our area so we can see the watch before we purchase it. I am hoping just for an exchange. Like I said it seemed like a great watch and not too complicated. He did say that the band seemed tight but wasn't too bothersome, maybe it would have stretched out as he wore it. My son is disappointed that he isn't able to wear his favorite gift until we replace it. I would still recommend this watch to others. Unfortunately this one was just defective.

Wasn't sure how I felt about velcro band but really like it. The functions are top notch and I am getting plenty of raves about how it looks. Its a cut above.
