Awesome watch, but just be aware,
This review is from: Iron Samurai - Japanese Inspired Blue LED Watch (Watch)This is a VERY cool-looking watch. When people see me press the button to light up the numbers, they always want to look at it.
As you can see in the description, this is an LED watch. That means that, to keep the battery from dying in a month, the numbers don't normally show; you have to press the button to see them. If you don't want to do that, don't buy this watch and then post a bad review afterwards. Because the numbers are made out of LIGHT, rather than being black on a pale background, when you're in bright sunlight, they will be hard to see; ditto on not buying it if you don't like that idea.
I have a fairly thick wrist, and the band hangs loose on me; I have left it that way because it looks more like a bracelet, but it should be possible to remove some of the links if you want it more fitted on your wrist.
The one thing that I would call an actual imperfection in this watch is that it tends to lose about a minute a week; because setting it... Read more
CAN'T BEAT THE PRICE,
This review is from: Iron Samurai - Japanese Inspired Blue LED Watch (Watch)For less then $5 bucks this watch is a great deal, it actually works as described. Easy to set and LED is visible in the day light without squinting to see the numbers.
However, beware... this watch is absolutely NOT water resistant. I washed some dishes while wearing it and I didn't put the watch in the water directly but the moisture some how got into the watch and it stopped working. On the up side after drying out for two days the watch started to work again (and it's still working now). It keeps time fairly well but loses time over a period of time. I just checked it and it has lost 8 minutes since I set it two weeks ago (I haven't worn it since then because I do a lot of manual labor in lots of different solutions that could cause the watch to stop working all together. So I only wear it when I go out.
It's impressive looking watch and I get a lot of comments on it. My Son wants one too, also my wife asked if they make one for a woman's wrist.
Over all it's style... Read more
The LED face is as big as a watch,
This review is from: Iron Samurai - Japanese Inspired Blue LED Watch (Watch)The LED face is as big as a watch & you can see the edges between the lights unlike in the picture. For instance, If you see how the number '1' looks, it's created by two LEDs that you can obviously separately distinguish. Each LED section is like that. They must have photoshopped the picture.
The band doesn't exactly match the watch face pattern but it's enough to fool someone from 10 feet away or in the dark. It's also made with what I can only think is a painted aluminum or metal alloy.(hopefully without lead)
I've taken pictures of my watch but no where on this amazon page does it have the 'Share Customer Images' option. *sad panda*
With all that said, this is an $8us watch. If they provided better quality I think they're other clone companies would have to increase the prices on their other watches. After All these OEM factories produce the same items for 100s of seemingly separate brand names.
It seems that for a time this watch came with a nice tin box that... Read more
