First of all, Ill start with saying that I have now had this watch for several weeks, and I still love it. I broke my previous watch a nice black adidas candy watch a little while ago, and since then have tried to find a replacement. It took me several attempts of buying watching, but I needed certain things clear, easy to read digital display, not too busy on the face with only relevant bits of information, a good illumination for night time use, good waterproof qualities and rubber wrist strap. Also I wanted a negative display watch, which I had loved on my previous adidas watch. I just think it makes a watch look so much better. With this G-Shock, I got everything I wanted and more. Face is clear, the illumination is actually one of the best Ive ever seen on a watch I work at night outside a lot so this is actually very important to me, and at 200 meters waterproof, I never have to take it off. It is also so sturdy, which you would expect from a G-Shock, and as Im in the military, I find of great benefit. Something I really like about this watch is the solar powered battery. Had to buy too many replacement batteries in my time, and always pay extra to make those watches water proof again... not any more! So far, after several weeks of using this watch, it has never come off High Battery status. Very pleased indeed. This watch has fulfilled all my requirements, and given me more. But on top of all that, I also think that it looks incredibly good! Love the all black look. I was concerned that G-Shock watches are so large, and I do have quite small wrists, but in reality it looks great and had many compliments about it. Definitely a great purchase. Highly recommended.

I bought this watch as a present for my boyfriend as he had the previous model which had lasted years and years but I thought it was time for an (overdue?) upgrade. He chose this watch primarily because of the solar-powered features (we do 3 the environment) which include an alarm, stopwatch and countdown timer – super useful for his job as a primary school teach and PE classes and sports day races! The design is chunky and there’s a large button for chunky fingers (none of that fiddling around with teeny-tiny buttons). The digital display makes it quick and easy to read the time while he’s teaching in class to keep his lessons on track. It’s also water resistant to 200m so more than suitable for your average recreational swimming.
Oh and the best thing? The WatchShop price this watch £20 cheaper than another online competitor; that’s one very happy boyfriend who thinks I spent more than I did on his pressy. Happy days.

Appearance
Straight out the box this watch looks rugged and built to last. The face is set back to limit unwanted knocks and scratches and the buttons are all set into the casing slightly to prevent you accidentally pressing them. The face is clear and easy to read and lights up well in all conditions. The all-black look of the casio adds to the feel that this watch is tough. The casing and strap are made of matte-plastic which stops the watch looking tacky.

Feel
The casio is comfortable against the skin and despite being bulky does not get in the way. The strap is easy to tighten and release and, even when running around, the watch feels secure on the wrist. Even though this watch is relatively large, it does not feel heavy and can be worn throughout the day without bother.

Functions
Within 10 minutes I had set the watch up using the handbook provided. The functions of the casio include normal timekeeping, world time, alarms, stopwatch and countdown timer. In the normal timekeeping mode you can access the time of another timezone of your choosing at the click of a button useful for travellers. There are a maximum of 5 alarms that can be setup on the watch and these can very easily be switched on or off. There is also a snooze alarm that will activate every 5 minutes after the time set and will continue to activate until it is switched off completely useful for heavy sleepers/habitual snooze-button-pressers. The stopwatch function is standard with split-time ability and the countdown mode is again quite standard.

Extra features
This is where this casio performs well in my opinion. I specifically chose it because of its tough solar capabilities, preventing the costly and difficult battery changes which may affecting the water resistance. The solar panels are behind the face of the watch and allow it to stay charged through everyday wear and will even charge under fluorescent lighting. The watch is water-resistant to 20 bar, more than enough for a swim or dunking in a river when outside. There is the ability to mute the watch, stopping all beeps and noises except set alarms. There is also the ability to put the watch into power save mode which will shut down certain functions of the watch if it is left unattended for an extended period of time. Lastly there is automatic illumination which means the backlight is activated when you turn the watch towards your face to read it.

Pros
Good-looking, rugged watch
Comfortable design for extended wear
Large number of useful features including multiple alarms
Easy to operate
Solar powered
Excellent water resistance
Good backlight for easy read in all conditions

Cons
Maybe oversized for very small wrists

Bought Mens Casio G-Shock Alarm Chronograph Watch GR-8900A-1ER: because I wanted a waterproof sturdy watch for a camping and surfing trip, watch was slightly bigger than I expected but not overly big or too bulky, actually looked better when arrived than picture on website. Nice deep looking uncluttered face which is shown in negative which I also liked. Very easy to set up yet has lots of features for those who like to play around with the setting, the illuminator is a nice touch, tilt the watch towards your face and the back light comes on. Couldnt be more pleased with the watch, just what I was looking for, looks good feels nice and a good price cheaper than Ive seen for sale elswhere . Five out of five.

I just received the watch. It is superb, I like it very much. I selected this model for the world time feature I travel a lot and I always had to set the local time, for the tough solar feature you dont need battery change anymore + you dont have to worry about watch water resist sealings when opened to change the battery. I like that is shock resist so I wont break or drown in outdoor activities for the office I have another more elegant watches.
The built quality is very good, my only worry is that the rubber band wont resist that much a friend of mine has a similar model and after a few years the band is all broken.
The only small negative thing about the watch is that is a little too big my hand is not so big so it looks a little bit weird on hand. But Ill get used to it, I hope.
I know Im not supposed to say nothing about the the seller, but they made me a very good impression and Ill buy in the future another products from them, because the prices are much lower that on other online shops this watch for example in my country is 60USD more expensive!.

This is the second G-shock I have owned, and I thought the first was good, this one is even better. Being a police officer I need something robust and able to withstand the rough and tumble that comes with the job which it certainly does. The fact that it is solar and never needs a battery replacing is a great touch, as I wouldnt be confident to go diving wearing it once it had been opened for a new battery. The power saving is a great idea along with the dial illuminating when you tilt your wrist as it can be hard to push a light button to see the time when you have one hand restraining someone. Not only is it practical for the job, but I also think it does not look out of place at a more formal do. Oh and the negative display took a bit to get used to, but now I love it!!!

I ordered this as a replacement to my 17 year old battered and tattered old G Shock....yes, I wept to see my old friend give up the ghost.
After much searching and comparing various G Shocks I opted for this model and very pleased I am with it to. It looks as youd expect....chunky and stylish but not overly chunky and my not to large wrist. It was very easy to set up and hasnt got any unnecessary features that some G Shocks can have.
Particular plus points for me are the quality of the illumination and the double pin strap which makes the watch feel more secure.
One maybe small negative for me is that in bright sunlight is sometimes difficult to see the time, I think it may have been better to put dark numbers on a light background.
Overall though I would give this watch 9/10.

This is a great looking watch. Nice to wear.

However, after less than 9 months it stopped charging the battery. Sent to Casio for repair who insisted the watch had been opened and therefore it was at my cost to repair it.

Shocking customer service and for what is meant to be an ultra rugged watch, rubbish.

Ive been umming and ahhing about buying a G-Shock for a while. They are quite a bold watch to wear. Its seen as a casual/sports watch and not something you would consider wearing to work and play.
I decided to go ahead and buy one and wore it with my suit to work.
It did catch the eyes of my colleges immediately as it was too thick to fit beneath the sleeve of my shirt.
Its been an instant hit with the males in the office being compared to something the new Batman would wear. A couple are considering buying one.
The females have almost all liked it except 1 there are 7 in my office who preferred a more expensive silver number I wore previously.
The watch is extremely sturdy and surprisingly comfortable to wear considering its size.
I chose this watch for the stop watch for my gym sessions and something tough for sparing sessions.

PROS:
Strong
Comfortable
Unique looks
Solar Power charge
Quickly switch to International Time

CONS:
Bulky, so will not fit under shirt sleeve

I bought this watch as I work in a Health and Fitness Club and wanted something multi functional, comfortable and resiliant. All boxes ticked with this watch. Its also smart enough that I can still wear it on the days I wear a shirt and trousers instead of workout gear. I would hand on heart recommend this to anyone looking for a smart sports watch. I would have paid the £120 rrp in the shops so to get it for £81 with free delivery just made my decision easier.

Nice looking watch, easy to set up and use. Back light is very bright and can be set to come on automatically at night. Display is white on black which is unusual but easy to read. Solar power is brilliant as no battery changes which also means the seal will remain in tact for swimming. It should be noted that it is fairly chunky watch so will not suit slim wrists. Overall, very impressed with product.

Having now bought this watch I am astonished at all the positive reviews.

Dont get me wrong, the watch looks great, but as a functional watch it isnt fit-for-purpose.

I need a watch to tell the time have a couple of alarms have a stop watch have a count down timer be rugged shock and waterproof and be visible in all light conditions.

I deliberately chose the negative display, as I thought it looked great. However, I didnt realise that you cant use the watch other than to look at the time in low light conditions. You cant use any other functions in conjunction with the light. You initiate the light, and by touching another function button, the light immediately goes out. So you cant set the watch up, use the stop watch, or use the count down timer without doing it blind.

I live in the UK, and you cant configure the date to DD:MM format. This might seem minor, but this drives me mad. Even Timexs have the function to configure the date for US and UK formats.

Now onto the buttons. These are protected, but as a consequence are actually difficult to use. This is made worse when you have to adjust anything, you need to hold down the Adjust button for 3 seconds. Again, this might seem minor, but I regularly have to change the count down timer, and this becomes a chore having to hold the button down.

I use the watch at work, on-site, in varied light conditions, in a very dirty environment, and in a laboratory. So I often have to wear latex gloves and use the watch one-handed. So the illumination function, the format of the buttons, and the need to hold down the Adjust button, make this almost impossible.

CONCLUSION

If you want a sports fashion watch this is a great watch.

However, if you want a practical, useable watch, save your money and get a Timex Ironman watch.

This watch has an excellent presentation, smart in the black colour and very versatile.
With its water resistance up to 20 bar pressure apparently can do free-diving with this watch, can rest assured that a little splash of water to snorkelling, it will continue to perform to its best.
The auto-illumination is great, as a twist of the wrist means that in a low level light environment, it will automatically illuminate the whole display of the watch for a few seconds, which you can also program how long it will remain illuminated under this function.
It has a touch solar casing and gets charged either by artificial lighting or by solar energy.
It is possible to have several time zones programmed in the watch, as well as up to 4 different alarms, as well as the other functions, like timer and chronometer.
All in all, a good round performance, for everyday use in life or for the casual wearer and highly recommended.

Chunky, Robust, Smart and almost elegant looking from certain angles this watch feels heavy on your wrist but you soon get used the weight. I work nights and the illumination is very good, bright and sharp, it has a feature which illuminates the watch face as soon as you turn the watch face towards you.

This is perfect for when you have something in your other hand, the only thing that lets this watch down is that in daylight the watch face comes across as dim this is due to the black background with grey numbers and letters. However you do become accustomed to it so In quick summary , Great watch for wearing in tough, environments its durable waterproof, and easy to use at the same time looking good.

I hope this helps Ill definitely being buying more G-Shock products in the near future the great quality and features !

Face of the watch was smaller and less chunky than expected compared to a g shock my son bought couple of years ago. I expected the light to be white as oppose to blue, as I bought it as a gift I dont know whether this has made any difference in terms of it being more easy or difficult to see the time.

Ok so on to my 5th G-Shock watch now, yes I am a huge fan and my latest purchase did not disappoint! The 8900A-1ER is an absolutely fantastic purchase, priced just over £80 with looks to die for! Firstly I love the large G-Shock watches. A few years back they started making them smaller, a return to the man-size G-Shock was a bold but great move. However, the latest creations though big and stylish are extremely light, but light without the feeling of frailty! It is after all a G-Shock. Ive worn G-Shocks on the mountain bike, at 160 mph on the race track, whilst skydiving, diving, in the Gym, and for leisure and theyve never let me down and Ive never once had to change a battery! Ive had this watch a few days and already I know its one of THE best Ive had. Its also much more practical than many of its siblings. From a practical sense it has a huge digital display screen. Whilst many prefer the aesthetics of watch hands and small multi digital display, I do not as they are simply too small to read, especially in the dark, even with lights. I require a watch with a countdown timer for training, with watch hands getting in the way of the countdown timer screen you would really struggle to use the timer. With this watch - no problem! The display is clear and plenty big enough. Another feature I love is how the light illuminates at the flick of the wrist to display the time. The G button however works well to illuminate the watch yet only for a second or two. Personally Id like to see the watch illuminate for as long as the button is held! The stopwatch function also works well with the large display and is always very clear! My favourite feature on these big watches however is the button size! Simple, I know but its the little touches that make the difference! Buttons big enough so that my chunky thumbs arent left repeatedly pressing, resorting to moving down finger sizes so that my pinky does the pressing! This used to annoy, now with the big buttons, thumbs work first time, every time! The choice of 24 hr display plus world time is simply another way to make your G-Shock, well...your G-Shock! Like people customise their phones you can very much set your watch to your own preferences, even though Im unlikely to ever need to know the time in Tokyo! In short Casio have definately got this G-Shock right, the blends of robust man size looks with practicality and style, pitched in at under £90 and virtually indestructible performance, whats not to love about it! Highly recommended! Whilst white looks awesome...dont buy it! Ink dye jackets rub off to make the watch look a little grubby! Go for black, stylish and timeless!

I initially thought that it would be a nightmare to work out so many features but, after reading the manual, it is very easy to use. Also, I initially thought it would be clunky because of its size, but, its not much bigger than my other watches. I bought this because I have a very expensive Hamilton that I didnt want to wear every day also on my bike and this G-Shock has proved to be a very good value everyday watch.

Bought this watch as a military watch for my rough and tumble job. First of all it looks brilliant, very stealth looking and purposefull. It is big but not to big, not for my wrists anyway, and is very light for what it is. The display is easy enough to read, and I mastered how to use the functions withing half an hour. The solar battery is a brilliant idea, hasnt gone below high power since Ive had it, and the thought of it not needing a battery change gives you a very smug feeling indeed. This along with it price, I dont think it can be beaten as a high quality adventure watch without spending double. Very happy.

Having owned G-Shocks before, there was never any doubt what brand I would go for when I next needed a digital watch and this doesnt disappoint at all....

All black with a resin strap, chunky without being oversized, powered by light and with all the fantastic features you would expect from Casio including world time, super auto LED light, tough solar movement, stopwatches, date, automatic calendar, mineral glass, battery level indicator and chronograph etc....plus it is of course shock resistant and water resistant to 200 metres / 7 atmospheres - much further than anyone is likely to go!

The price its selling at on Watch Shop is insanely good value - Im a 31 year old bloke but these watches suit everyone unless you have unfeasibly small arms....!...well done Casio and thank you WatchShop

An excellent watch which is ideal for a professional sports coach. The main factor for purchasing this watch was its ability to endure the rigors of being outside and the demands of being dropped and knocked.

The self charging battery means I can avoid any fear of usage and also the need to dismantle the watch to replace the battery.

There was a worry that the size of the watch would mean it was uncomfortable when wearing it but the watch is extremely comfortable and not bulky at all.

I definitely recommend this watch.

I absolutely love the watch. I thought it would be too big on my wrist, but it sits perfectly. I cant stop playing with the functions, and the wrist tilt automatic light is amazing. I wasnt to happy with the delivery. I waited all morning for Royal Mail, and without ringing my doorbell, assumed I wasnt home and dropped my a letter, stating that no one was home, forcing me to go to the local sorting office the next day to pick up the watch. Other than the delivery mishap, I loved the watch and I am tempted to buy another, but I want to avoid Royal Mail.

Very pleased with this watch. I bought it for work so Im not scratching my other watches. Its very light in comparison to my Skyhawk AT and comfortable with all the functionality I need. I often forget im wearing it. I love the auto illuminator, inverted display, power saver mode and the fact its solar powered. The tough solar was the main motivation for purchase, along with g-shock durability as I had heard its expensive to get a standard battery replaced and re sealed. The functions are easy to navigate and Im yet to read the instructions. Its yet to be scratched so hopefully the mineral glass will bear up to a pounding like the rest of the watch. if your active and want a watch that can take it or just want a watch that offers value for money, I would definitely recommend it. I will be buying another for myself at Christmas once I decide on which one, maybe a mudman. Nudge nudge to the wife -

I own and operate a Wartime and Military/Naval company called Orkney Uncovered. I have a CWC Army watch which has been great but I have needed something more substantial which is shock proof combined with solar power and completely waterproof as my job involves both water/land/air based tours in the rugged Orkney environment.

I have done a lot of research as I do with all my watches and decided upon the GR-8900A-1ER. I was amazed at how quickly the watch arrived.

The watch looks fairly rugged and for its size amazingly lightweight which is perfect for my job. I love the fact it has World times incorporated into the watch as well as a number of alarms which are very useful for giving me a heads up for the changing tides.

My favourite feature about the watch is the luminous dial which lights up when you walk outside, which makes the screen very visible and the suns glare has no effect on reducing visibility.

Overall a perfect watch that offers a tactical and practical use for my business and it looks great too.

The product is high quality but affordable. I used to get though a lot of watches as they were always breaking, until I discovered G-shock not broken one yet only bought this one cause I lost the last one. Always wear it and it gets bashed,splashed but still just keeps going. No need fr replace batteries as the solar charge is also excellent

I had my last CASIO G for 14 years, travelled all over the world, took it into military operational theatres and always brought it back home. With the rubber casing finally breaking, I decided to replace it. This model is the modern equivalent and has everything the last model had and more. I love the world time zone facility, solar functions and auto-light function when my wrist is tilted. Add to that the solar power generation and I simply cannot think of a way that this watch could be better. This model doesnt provide information on tidal patterns or alitutdue/direction etc - but is does cover every timing function you need. It is no-nonsense, resilient timing excellence and even the wife thinks it looks stylish and approves of me wearing out on an evening. Forget the war-zone nonsense making the wife happy - that is really impressive!

After breaking 2 watches in 2 months in work I thought its time to get a tougher watch, and my search brought me to this.
Delivery was very quick 2 days.
The watch its self was presented very well in the case and it was unopend before hand so I knew it was brand new.
First thoughts where it is a very good looking watch and a few people have commented on it and its looks.
However if you work at dusk or dawn or a poorly lit place of work then you will struggle to tell the time on it, with it being negative when poorley light you can not just glance at it, and the backlight makes matters worse.

All in all this is a quality watch that is solar powered so I will never have to worry about changing the battery. Setting the time was so easy and all the functions on it are easy to use (I have not read the instructions and can set alarms and countdown timers)

Would recomend this watch to all

This watch came with a recommendation for use in the armed forces (although not by the watchmakers) - it was hoped that it would be a 'robust' buy for my 16 year old son. Within one week of general wear, the watch has already been chipped. So really disappointed as it is not a cheap watch! Other than this - there have not been any other issues.

The G-Shock I bought isn't the first G-Shock I've owned and this one seems just as good and stylish as the others. The modern styling and attractive use of black and silver elements works well. Although I'm free to add negative comments about the watch I can't think of any. So if you are looking for a good quality and good looking, rugged watch packed with features you could do a lot worse than consider one of these G-Shocks.

I’ve waited a fortnight to write this review to get a true feel of the watch and overall I am very impressed by its practicality and depth of features. I bought this watch because it looks stylish at a reasonable price. The durability wasn’t really a factor however it has come out unscathed in the little tests I’ve given it (shower, steam room at the gym etc). The solar power is a nice idea, however if like me you occasionally wear jackets that cover the watch then the lack of light exposure depletes the power pretty quickly and some features are disabled and replaced with a flashing ‘low’ sign. As of yet this is the only negative I have found and why I have chosen ‘very good’ over ‘excellent’. A solid watch nonetheless and I would definitely recommend it.

I wanted a watch that would do it all. Im about to go travelling around the world and was looking for a rugged watch with world times, good water resistance and good looks. After seeing the good reviews on here, I ordered this watch, and after owning it for a week Im incredibly pleased with it.

First, the packaging was great. A reassuring tin box made the purchase feel that bit more premium, and it was presented very nicely.

Setting up the watch took a bit of time for me, at least and I didnt find Casios instructions to be that clear. Once if cracked it though it was simple enough.

The blackout face took some getting used to. I had read some opinions on here that the face it hard to see in cloudy or even sunny conditions, and I wouldnt say that at all. I have only had issues reading the time in low, indoor light. And besides, thanks to the Auto EL feature you can simply turn your wrist to light up the face. The blue light is very cool, and unexpected.

It isnt a small watch, and you cant fit it under a lot of shirt cuffs. The strap itself is bulky enough! That said, it weighs very little and the size gives you some confidence that it wont fall to pieces.

Given the option, I wouldnt hesitate to buy this watch again. While it wont win any beauty contests its an attractive, highly functional watch with little maintenance needed. Go for it!

Very smart watch, stealth like, perhaps suit a Nighthawk pilot!
Easy to use, has the essential features, several alarms, countdown timer and stopwatch, all you need for an action watch.
Solar power is a bonus, no battery changes. Tested the water resistance down to 1.5m whilst on holiday.
Get one and look like off-duty SAS.

I was looking for a gift for my mountain biking mad boyfriend, something he could wear out on the trails and at work when he needs a stop watch for timing tests at work. This watch definitely fit the requirements its stylish and sporty, and has that nice G-Shock chunkiness without looking plastic and cheap. The functions are too many to mention, but he was delighted with the gift and its now welded to his wrist! Nice product, excellent online price and the usual super fast next day delivery by Watch Shop. Thank you.

Its slightly bigger than my previous watch but I got use to that very quickly. Very easy to use and if you like g shock youll like this watch. Im sold on them and wouldnt have any other watch. I would recommend g shock and watchshop. Cheap with a prompt secure delivery. I have no complaints.

I’ve owned this watch for a number of weeks now and really like it.

I bought it because I wanted a tough watch for sports use to replace my ancient Timex Ironman witch is sadly no longer with us this watch fits that bill perfectly. I really like the all black, it looks mean!

Ill list some pros and cons I should mention, I dont usually like digital watches, Im a die hard analogue guy. But you cant beat digital for practicality!

Pros.

-Tough looking, not too big, just the right size.
-Solars great, power meter hasnt moved off Full since Ive owned it.
-Smart looking back light blue as pictured in other reviews
-Great stopwatch functionality split time, two finishers.
-World time has been more useful than expected.
-five daily alarms and/or hourly signal.
-The waterproof is great, with the resin strap I dont give it a second thought.

Cons. the why for less than top marks

-Auto light doesnt seem to work very well. I havent complained because I had no intention of having it on anyway! seems a bit silly.
-The count down timer is pretty useless, which is my biggest gripe. it will only time in hours and minuets, not seconds. So its ok if you only need to time stuff to the nearest whole minute, but that is super limiting!!

Well I think thats all, based on my personal experience. essentially I love this watch, I use it for sports and outdoors, and for that stuff its superb. My only problem with it is that point about the smelly timer! Oh and for £81 its an absolute bargain!!

After opening the box and packaging revealing the item I had purchased, I immediately noticed the high quality materials that the watch had been made of. Putting the watch on, I found that it was extremely comfortable and light which was surprising due to the amount of accessories the watch has, for example numerous alarms, a stopwatch and timers.
I was also pleased to notice that a small manual was provided with the watch which made setting up and configuration of the watch easy and quick.
The most appealing aspect of the watch is where the day of week, date and time are all available on one surface which are also easy to read. Also, the tough solar attribute to the watch also adds to the appeal as there are no batteries needed which saves cost in the long run.
The only negative point I have for this product was that while putting it on, I found that the space between the holes for the clasp were a touch wide for the size of my wrist. This meant that I couldnt find a nice fit which I would have preferred but this is only my personal opinion as I like a watch to be fitting and secure on my wrist. Other than this, the watch exceeded my expectations and I am very happy with the product I have received. If I was to score this product on overall use out of 10 it would be a 9.5.

Recently I purchased the Mens Casio G-Shock Alarm Chronograph Watch GR-8900A-1ER.
I have used it at work and in my own time and found it comfortable and useful.
The watch is a great size. I would say thicker than the average watch but not to big or oversized face.
The feel of the watch is rugged yet looks professional enough at work and trendy with a shirt on or polo.
Im looking forward to testing out its durability in the water and bashing it around a bit at rugby.
I would recommend this watch to anyone who wants a watch thats powered by solar technology but doesnt want to have to worry about it bashing into things and breaking.
Well done G-shock 10/10 and a great price too :0

Having previously owned watches of every make and style, I continually come back to the G shock range. This is my daily wear, I needed something for my tough line of work as a seafarer that will stand up to the harshest environment with out compromising on style, this particular model ticks all the boxes, I particularly like the auto light and world time zones which I travel through many.

Dont hesitate at this price its a steal.

Received my watch very promptly from Amazon, supers saver delivery was super quick and free so already on to a winner. Watch was exactly the same as in the photograph no problem with seeing the time as some people suggested. Nice fit on the wrist and its definitely a head turner. Big face and fits comfortable. Cant fault it in anyway shape it form.

Great watch, Looks great. Nice and chunky too. I really like the Solar side so no need to replace batteries once run out. Easy to use. I have also used it swimming and works great.

Highly recommend

Watch does exactly what it says on the tin. Looks great on, picture doesn't do it justice. Really user friendly.
