Nice feature set wrapped up in a chunky retro aesthetic
March 1, 2019
At present Amazon doesn’t seem to have a full rundown of the spec but it’s features are:
2 independently programmable time zones
50 lap chronograph with recall function
Countdown timer with auto-repeat
2 step Interval timer with auto-repeat
3 alarms (can be set to daily, day of the week, weekends/weekdays)
Indigo night light.
Takes a CR2016 battery
The watch has a cool chunky, sci-fi aesthetic to it, weighs nicely on the wrist and has a large clear display.
In comparison it has a smaller profile than most G-shocks but might not fit under a dress shirt, for example (given that this is from the ‘Expedition’ series such models seem geared towards outdoors/urban, generally).
The two time zones can be switched between from the main time screen at the push of a button.
The extra functions like the chronograph and timers are easily programmable and intuitive to navigate.
The chronograph doesn’t feature the ability to check the best/average lap like on the Ironman line but this is the only con in my opinion.
The countdown timer and interval timer can be set independently and to auto-repeat, a feature not always present on digitals of this level.
The watch’s beep volume is noticeable enough without being overly loud and would suit most environments and applications. This can be set to off and there’s also an hourly chime function available, both settable via the main screen. It also allows the user to set the date to DD/MM or MM/DD, these options are something that I think is always a nice touch.
The strap is super soft and pliable to a small degree making for a comfortable feel on the wrist and I think would be stretchy enough for wearing over clothes where needed.
The watch itself comes across as durable and hard wearing, the buttons easily pushable but with a bit of tension/push back when depressing so as not to trigger easily.
The Indiglo light lights up the digits rather than the face of the LCD which to me makes for clearer viewing in the dark and featured on most Timex watches, I just thought I’d add that for any potential buyers.
Over all, a really nice cool looking watch with a great set of functions that would cover most everyday needs.
