I bought this stopwatch as part of my studies as a personal trainer and it hasn't disappointed me. I wanted a good quality product that was maintainable over time. So for me this offered everything I wanted and I am really pleased with it. It's a steardy watch with many functions but easy to operate once you've familiarised yourself with the basic functions. Would recommend.

Do not be decieved; despite the claim of a 100-hour chronograph, this is NOT the whole truth. I bought this because I needed something to show a continuous time of at least 31 hours -this is because of a planned world record endurance event to raise money for charity, and we need to prove to Guinness that we have done it for as long as we said. So I needed something which would run continuously for at least 31 hours. Needless to say, when I saw the words 100-hour chronograph, I didnt hesitate.

There is a yellow card as part of the inner packaging which actually states "100-hour chronograph". However, the back of the box talks about timing for "all 1440 minutes of your day" - this is, indeed, 24 hours. More importantly, the instruction booklet clearly states a "24-hour chronograph", and goes on to say that after 24 hours the chronograph reverts to zero, which makes it absolutely useless for my needs and totally misleading in terms of an apparent 100-hour chronograph.

In a word, I'm livid.

I bought this stop-watch to use it when photographing in the dark. For this I would have liked to use the timer and see the counting down all the time at night.
The timer cannot be reset to zero and the lighting of the screen happens only for 3 seconds at a time.
As it is, I have to count up the time with the chronograph and re-light the screen every few seconds.
Very disappointing.

I chose the watch to time runners on the track so I could give them their split times. It doesn't do it - it gives the difference between one runner and the next not their actual times - apart from the first one. This is useless to a coach. Split times does not mean how much longer the second runner takes after the first; you need it to recall and display the individual's time for their run. This was not clear in the advert

A good stop watch but would be better if it gave the option of lap times form when the watch is started not just from the last lap.
