Purchased 9/20 and died 52 days later – now I’m seeing quite a few reviews with similar or quicker demises. Armitron customer service was completely unhelpful and very blasé about the short lifetime. Seems like maybe these watches are have some age on them, so the battery is on its last legs when you receive it. Husband is a champ at replacing batteries and has quite an inventory of them so it wouldn’t usually be a big deal, but this model requires removal of the entire band and a specialized a teeny tiny screwdriver… AND the battery is not a standard one. Overall would not purchase again and can’t recommend. UPDATE 12/1 – after replacing the battery, on 11/24, the watch DIED AGAIN TODAY. This is clearly a defective product. SECOND UPDATE, 12/22: After contacting Amazon, they (in typical stellar customer relations fashion) replaced the watch that died twice. So nice! I love Amazon. But? Yet? now THAT watch has died as well, just weeks after it arrived. (Truth: I swear on the soul of my father, Domingo Montoya…). I’m about to contact them again to request they replace the second one as well – perhaps I should just suggest they add a free one to my monthly subscription delivery…

I ordered the silver on silver watch and love how classy it looks for a digital watch! I also love all the extra functions included with the watch: stopwatch, timer, dual time zone times (great for traveling to different time zone), alarm (with chime/ring), date, day, 12/24hr (military time option), time light up, water resistance.
For those asking about setting time or turning off hourly chime:
Setting time & date1. Press & hold RESET (top left), seconds will start to flash.2. Press ST/STP (top right) to reset secs to 0.3. Press MODE (bottom left) to move to hours.4. Press ST/STP to advance the hour.5. Press MODE to move to minutes and repeat step 4 & 5 until you’re done setting the time and date.6. Press RESET to exit the time&date settings.7. Voila! Your time & date are set!
How to Disable Hourly Chime1. Press MODE (bottom left) to get to the alarm menu.2. If you see two symbols of a bell and wifi looking symbols at the bottom of the time, you have an alarm and hourly chime set.3. Press ST/STP (top right) until the two symbols disappear.4. Press MODE 3 times to return back to the normal watch time & date screen.

Cute, comfortable and I very much appreciated that it arrived set to the correct time and date. I have a very small wrist and the third setting fits perfectly. I bought this watch specifically to have something waterproof that I could wear while paddle boarding, but it is certainly attractive enough that I won’t limit its wear to just when I’m swimming.

This watch is everything I was looking for. Affordable, chicness, simplicity, right size and just plain cute ! Lol I’m a nursing student and this goes into military time and has many other features. I’m happy with this purchase.

I am writing this review in order to help out the Amazon customer community. Although there are many reviews of this watch, I couldn’t find any answer to what type of battery this takes. I ended up taking the watch apart, and I can now tell you that what was inside was a CR1616 3v battery. The brand was Maxell.
I’ve been reasonably happy with this watch. Can’t beat the price for a water resistant watch. I ordered the silver, which looks nice enough to wear with business or any attire. I wear it swimming in the ocean several times a week, and it lasted almost exactly 1 year before the display went haywire. It happened while I was in the water, and I wasn’t sure if the watch going haywire was due to the battery dying or due to water. I’ve ordered a new battery and will try to change it and see if that works. Because this watch is so reasonably priced, I debated with myself quite a bit in deciding if it is worth it to try to change the battery. But I ultimately decided it wasn’t much of a risk to spend $3.55 on a 3-pack of the CR1616 3v battery and give the battery-change a try. . . .Whether I’ll be able to put it back together and have it remain waterproof is up in the air, and I’ll try to update this review once I receive the battery and try to put it in the watch.

Small, clear watch, perfect for little wrist. Box was horribly squashed on arrival which was annoying as it was a present.

UPDATE: We give up….4 of us have tried to set this watch to the proper time and it just reverts right back to East Coast Time. Not even worth sending back…I’ll give it to my 3 year old great-granddaughter. She’ll have fun with it. The watch itself is quite easy to read…The instructions are microscopic and we had to use a magnifying glass to read them. Someone was kind enough to set the day & date and TIME…BUT they must have been from back East. It’s 3 full hours ahead of California time and try as I might (and even my husband tried), we haven’t figured out how to fix it. We’re going to keep trying and I’ll do an update, if/when successful. Otherwise, I just wanted to let you know that it’s for a pretty small wrist (thankfully, I have one) so it does fit. It says it’s “water resistant” so when our gym pool reopens after all this COVID-19 craziness subsides, I’ll give it a try.
UPDATE: The Instructions are totally WRONG. Ended up having to use “Dual Time” to get the correct time but lost the Day/Date in the process! Oh well. At least I’ll know what time it is…Time to maybe get a better watch with decent instructions – Oh, and one that’s “water proof” ! !

This watch was great. Wore it while snorkeling, horseback riding and jet skiing. Still looks like new. Very comfortable band. I receive compliments when I wear it. It has a back light that is great when you are in the dark. Four buttons for various features including an alarm clock. I’d recommend it to anyone interested in a water proof watch. I had it in the water about 7 feet deep and no issues and no fogging. 🙂

Worked ok for 8 months but during 9th month of ownership the display started to alternate between gibberish and blank. There is no apparent means of making a warranty claim on the Amazon website. So disappointing.
By comparison I have an Casio watch bought in the 80’s which is still working having had no battery change.

The watch looks great, it has a really nice display time, date, day ,large enough to see easily at a glance. Just what I wanted, very pleased.
