I bought this for a beach vacation. I can't talk about its longevity and for its price - I don't mind so much about that. It was perfect for my use. The time was clear and easy to read. The light worked fine. I swam and snorkeled with it every day. I don't think I have tiny wrists, though I guess they're not especially large either. It fit fine with plenty of watchband to spare, though I can see how it might not fit a really large wrist. I wish it had been easier to find directions for setting it online, but that's really my only critique. I love how reasonably priced it is. I left it at the beach with my aunt, who kept asking me what time it was.
I never write reviews but I NEED TO for this amazing little watch. This watch got me through basic training, and is still going strong. I would wear it in the shower pretty much every day, twice a day, because we barely had any time - and this watch never faltered! It is truly waterproof. I also wore it rolling around in sand, dirt, mud, etc. and it is still in perfect working condition. It even looks nice, still! Speaking of its appearance, I love the size of it - so many watches are so bulky, but this one is totally unobtrusive. As you can probably guess from this review, I highly recommend this watch. :)
This is my second watch like this. The strap broke on the first one after several years of wearing it almost daily. I never had to replace the battery, but the strap did break and replacing it was going to cost more than buying another new watch. :-( I bought this watch because of the style. It is a sports watch, but not clunky looking like so many others. It is my daily watch. The reason I knocked off a star is because I do not find it intuitive to use. Years ago I had one of those clunky style watches in another brand and it was much more user friendly. I keep the directions handy for this one. :-)
I love this watch. I was wearing it on my trip to Ecuador and it survived volcanic hot springs water, Amazon's Rain forest rain, basa wood rafting, hot showers and swiming pools. They are very attractive looking, light, not bulky (as most of the sport watches), has very comfortable wristband and is very affordable. And turned out that my daughter has a similar Armitron model, her's is a rounder and more silver version. So it's attractive to all ages. I love it so much so I bough another watch in white/rose gold version.
