Tissot 1st popped up on my radar due to their involvement with motorcycle racing. After researching the brand, I bought my 1st Tissot about 3 yrs ago (the V8, still running strong). I love that watch for it's styling and quality.
Shortly after buying that watch, I learned about the T-touch. I will admit that I have liked this watch for many yrs before purchasing the T-Touch Expert III, so I may be a little bias.
This watch combines a masculine stylish watch with a ton of features that will bring the boy out in us all. The Titanium finish is beautiful and lightweight (only watch I have lighter is the Luminox 8802). The band is more comfortable than expected and easy to size.
This is my humble opinion on all the features I have figured out/ used so far.
The Touch crystal is very cool. Mine has worked flawless for about 6 months so far.
The Compass worked well in a recent trip to Germany. I was concerned about going through an x-ray machine, thinking that may mess with the compass calibration, it did not. Works well, before and after the trip.
The Alarm works well, wakes me up every time.
The Barometer is pretty cool, simple and easy to use. One side-clear day, the other side- possible rain. Seems pretty accurate so far.
The Thermotermer seems to be spot on, of course your wrist will through off, but when off your wrist seems very accurate.
The Altimeter is interesting to use when hiking or driving to see how much your altitude varies.
Awesome watch- whether you are a watch nerd, outdoors men, tech geek, or looking for a rugged looking dress watch (titanium band if you want it to look dressy.
Amazon direct purchase does warranty the watch through Amazon, not directly through Tissot.
