Good Features, Great Value.

I've had this watch for a few years now and it's still going strong. I wanted a cheap watch so that when it took knocks while coaching football I wouldn't worry too much about it. When I was looking for it I had three criteria and at the time it was about the only watch that met them all.
Firstly I wanted a countdown timer for when refereeing football matches. Having something that beeps at the end of the set time period is much better than keeping an eye on a stopwatch.
Secondly I wanted a stopwatch for when watching football. Many stadia clocks stop at 90 mins so that they do not conflict with the referee when he adds time. I like to know how much extra time has been played/is left for myself.
Finally, and this was the clincher for this watch, I don't like big chunky watches. My wrists are not that big so a chunky watch both looks stupid and catches on things. This is the perfect size for me.
The screen is clear with time in large characters and the date in smaller ones above. When switching to timer, stopwatch, alarm or dual time the current time replaces the date so you can still see that. When operating the timer or stopwatch though the time is replaced by the hour count.
I will continue to use this watch until either it gets broken or the battery dies at which point I will look for something similar, if not the same.
