      I bought this little watch some years back to serve as an almost-disposable running watch. Strangely enough it’s lasted and lasted – would you believe I’m still using it right now?

      It has a bunch of features that make it a great watch for running or for situations that require you to have a simple, nondescript watch. Firstly, it’s made mostly of plastic, which means that it’s very light and feels like you’re wearing nothing on your wrist. That said, it’s quite durable; my little watch has taken quite a few lumps and has survived them


      with nary a scratch (save for the plastic face, which has been scratched slightly – but is still quite readable).

      Next, the variant I bought was the Velcro-strap variant, which is lighter than the rubber-strap one and somewhat more easily adjustable on the go, a definite boon to runners who can’t take the time to look down or stop to adjust something they’re wearing. The only problem is that it absorbs sweat somewhat and ends up smelling after a little while, which means that it needs washing after it gets saturated with sweat. But it ...


      • dries out fast anyway.

        Thirdly, the interface is wonderfully easy to use. The “home screen” gives you time and date info at a glance. A couple of presses will take you to the chronograph and timer screens where you can set these settings if you’re so inclined. There are four buttons that surround the screen, to select the mode, set the time and date, activate the Indiglo function to read the watch’s display at night or when it’s dark, and stop or reset the chrono or timer if you have it activated. A big start/split

        button lies under the watch’s screen and this is used to start the timer or chrono and/or indicate a split in your run. You can record up to 30 lap times if you like and compare them to see how you’re progressing (or not). The interface is just so easy to use that I can actually select and run through modes without even looking!

        I love this little watch – it’s so efficient even that I haven’t even changed its battery yet – and I would definitely buy another one if and when this current one dies.
