By Ralph Bacon TOP 500 REVIEWER

I was after a speaking watch for some time, purely for use at night when it's difficult to see a normal watch.

PROs
----
Accurate; it gets a time signal every day (assuming you're not living in a lead-lined room, and even then you can just leave it on the window sill during the day and it will pick up the time within a few minutes)

Clearly spoken. Although during the day you might think "not loud enough, surely?" I can assure you that at 2am it's more than loud enough. Man's voice, BBC English, and optionally will speak the date too.

Large face with nicely contrasting black hands and white face (other options are available too but this seemed the easiest to read).

Not only is it accurate the voice and hands all match up so you don't have to adjust it. Not ever, not even after the daylight saving hour. Brilliant!

CONs
----
Large for a 'ladies' watch, but as it's primarily for the partially sighted it's probably a good thing.

Chunky. OK, this was probably the biggest surprise, in how thick it was from front (the watch face) to the back of the watch, probably due to all the electronics. Not a deal breaker but not the most stylish of watches for day use. However, if you are visually challenged then its function will be of much more importance than how chunky it is. And as I said, it's only used at night.

Strap was leather with a buckle. Useless for quick changes. So I replaced it with an expanding bracelet from a market man-in-a-van and it's great. Annoyingly, other models in the same range come with either a bracelet (clasp) or expanding bracelet strap just not this black-hand on white face version. Typical.

Conclusion
----------
Excellent for what it is intended for.

5.0 out of 5 stars Talking Watch 13 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase
I bought this watch for my mother and we are both impressed at how easy it is for a person with limited sight to use. She will not have to worry about how to check the time because the radio signal does it all for her. She can now easily check on the time and know that it is accurate.

3.0 out of 5 stars A BIT ON THE LARGE SIZE 19 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase
It may be that I need to go to Specsavers, but in the pictures I see what looks like a conventional sized ladies watch. In reality it is as large as a man's watch - worth bearing that in mind if you want something subtle. It's working fine though so no complaints on that score.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lifemax Ladies Talking Watch 2 Nov 2012
By Dor
Verified Purchase
The first watch I received caused some problems after about 2 weeks.
Firstly the battery gave out,so I had that replaced at a well known jewellers.
This was quickly followed by the watch unable to keep any sort of time,which was
very confusing at first because the instructions are quite complex. After several
attempts of setting the time it became obvious that the watch was faulty.So I returned
the watch to Amazon , who sent me a replacement very promptly. The replacement watch
has worked like 'clockwork',excuse the pun', and I am more than happy with the product.

The mechanical diction is not very clear sometimes otherwise, timekeeping, updating and switching to GMT all works (ed) very well.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too bulky 11 Dec 2013
By kaz
Verified Purchase
The clock face was perfect but the watch on the whole was far too bulky. This was a gift for my daughter who has very small wrists, she said the bulkiness made the watch very uncomfortable.
