Have only had this watch for about 2 weeks but it's still running so that is always a plus! Keeps accurate time and temp. (but you have to take it off so it doesn't pick up body temp. as with any temp. watch), compass is pretty good and while it may not be dead on it will get you to the North Pole. Like the 24hr. mode (I'm old military & law enforcement), easy to read (old eyes) bright illumination at night. Compass only stays on for 10 sec. but that's okay because if it stayed on it would be running constantly killing the battery. Only thing is that I should have bought the one with the cloth band. The resin (rubber) band is a bit stiff but is adequate and matches the watch face, also I've had a Spalding watch with resin band for 20 yrs. and it's still in good shape so it will probably work out. So far worth the $38 bucks, ($40 with the cloth band), and free shipping is always a plus. Hope this helps, if not you didn't hear this from me!
Shipping was really quick and was just what my husband needed for his new job in law enforcement. He still hasn't figured out how to keep the digital compass on at all times but he likes the watch overall!
