My white Breo Roam is sooooooo much better looking than the colours on dooyoo at present!
On a recent holiday trip I saw these watches in the duty free selection for £10 and thought what a great gift one would be for a friend with Christmas in mind.
Breo is a young and hip, relatively new brand which is gaining in popularity all the time and their roam watches have been spotted adorning many celebrity wrist. Their range is continually expanding and the roam is their 'base' model.
I bought this watch in white. The watch itself is a relatively simple looking rubber loop which houses a digital watch display in a simple capsule formed within the rubber strap. The strap is made of Tourmaline which is claimed to be responsible for many health benefits including enhancing mood and relaxation.
The digital screen of the watch is extremely small and tells the time on two lines- top line hour and bottom line- minutes. Therefore visibility of the time is not best and you do have to hold it close to your eyes if your struggle with your vision.
Time setting is through a simple push button system to the back of the display. I've used a pen nib to get the time right previously however a saftey pin or other stiff fine object would be suitable
I said I bought this as a present but I was so taken with it I kept it for myself! And i've bought a couple as presents since too!
The simple understated design looks fresh and my watch weighs a meagre 12 grams to I can hardly tell it's on my wrist!
The white colour initially seemed like it might go a little off-coloured over time however 6 months on it's still brilliant white.
I love this watch! For the price I give it a 5! and it'd be great for children too!
