    It is a nice colour and tells the time. And records my steps on the treadmill accurately.
    I received a big scratch on the face the first week I used it - i think from swimming. Many more have come since. Swim count completely inaccurate - a 50 minute swim is recorded as as 5 mins, 7 mins, and 10 minute swims.
    Step count is accurate on the treadmill not outside. (1000 steps would be .8KM on the treadmill but much less outdoors)
