DO NOT PURCHASE THIS WATCH IF YOU MAY EXPOSE IT TO RAIN OR WATER. I am generally a passive purchaser, but I am compelled to write this review based on the terrible performance of this watch. The watch is rated for water resistance up to 10 meters. To quote the Amazon description, "The Tech 4O Traileader Jet may look like a watch, but it works like the ultimate survival tool, packing everything you need to navigate the wildest of wild places into a compact, rugged stainless-steel case." Implicit in this description as well as the water resistance rating, is the ability to wear it in wet places. My watch flooded when it got wet (my arm dipped into the water less than one foot) on a recent trip to a lake. It is no longer operational (after a total life of 2 months). When I discussed this with the company, they indicated that it should never be placed in the shower or submerged at all in water. Because it was submerged (albeit less than one foot), the warranty is void. This was new to me, as I interpret "Water Resistant to 10M" to mean that the item should not flood at 6 inches, and if it does, it would be covered by the warranty. Otherwise, it should state "Water Resistant to 6 inches." Additionally, I interpret "navigate the wildest of places" to include wet environments given that water covers over 70% of the planet. I have had a number of outdoor watches (Timex, Polar, Rolex, etc...). None of these has broken when exposed to shower water or slightly submerged in standing water. I would never recommend this watch to an outdoor enthusiast, as it is next to impossible to avoid incidental submersion if this watch is used for its intended purpose. Moreover, do not expect any reasonable customer support in this event. You are much better off paying a little more for a Suunto or a lot less for a Timex Iron Man that will operate in a wet environment. These guys just got it wrong in making this watch.
