I have this watch, as well as the Newton. They're both great watches. One cool feature of the digital is that you can actually play Pong by pushing the keys in a secret order. (The right side buttons, up, down, up, down, up, up, down, down) Have fun.

i first reviewed this on 7/24/11. after over a year of daily use, it's finally coming apart.
about a month a go, the little strap that holds the slack band in place got a tiny tear in it. i buckle my watch to the tightest notch so i had a feeling this would be the first part to break. it is still functional even with this tear.
just yesterday, the watch face started separating from the silicone band, also on the side that gets pulled when tightened (the "top" of the square). in this state, i'm worried the watch will fall off my arm if the last bit of silicone tears. i really love the nixon newton and will buy a replacement. in the mean time, i've "glued" the watch face back to the silicone with a low viscosity resin... probably not recommended by the manufacturer but it's the only thing that i could think of that would hold it in place. the watch is not damaged and the silicone tears are from every day use so i don't believe it's covered by any warranty; which is why i decided to repair it myself.
i think i got my money worth from this watch and will definitely buy it again.

got the all white, looks really stylish and fits great even though it's a men's watch [and i'm a gal]. it has a light! and can display military time. love the big numbers and the strap can be secured down. doesn't seem to have an alarm function or stopwatch but can't have it all, right? this watch looks really good... i am tempted to get another color!
I have the wrong date on my Nixon Newton Digital Watch. How do you change the date???

It's actually not too hard! Press and hold the button on the lower left side of the face, until the display starts blinking. Then, use the same button to advance through the different time sequences (minutes, hours, date, etc.). Increase or decrease the values with the top and bottom buttons on the right side of the face. Then, when you're done - press and hold that lower left button for three seconds, and you're dialed!

First impression of the watch:
1) It is really actually quite bright.
2) It has a backlight button, so you can see it in the dark!
3) It can get dusty due to the silicon band, but it is easily brushed off the smooth surface.
4) The watch band has a bevel in it so that the band excess band never comes unlatched.
I would recommend this watch to anyone into style, and simplicity!
'fraid not, you'll have to poke around locally for a Nixon dealer.

Waterproof to 30 meters - good for singing in the shower, less good for sightseeing in a shipwreck.

had it now for over a year and I love it - it is waterproof in that I wear it in the shower everyday and it's never been a problem. get lotso compliments on it - I have the black and it reminds me of the monolith in 2001. so future and yet so retro. agreed that there are really zero added features but all I want is my watch to tell me the time and day - got my Mac products for everything else...
How long does it usually take for Nixon to restock a certain colorway for a watch? I want to get this watch in a colorway that's only available on the nixon site and preferably before Christmas.

Hey AJ, the only way you would turn this on, is if there is a plastic strip sticking out of the back, which would say pull, but most Nixon watches ship from us with the battery already going so if yours isn't working, give us a call. We can see what we can do for you.
