**A Bright Orange Watch?!**
What on earth possessed me to buy a bright orange rubber watch?! Admittedly, it wasn't the colour, but hey ho- it's kinda funky looking and it matches my brightly coloured sports gear. Not that i'm seen in sports gear a lot, but due to dieting recently, I'm on a bit of a health fad.
The Breo Sports Roam watch attracted my attention whilst browsing Amazon a few months back. More than anything it was the £5 price tag that caught my eye and it also matched my thoughts on it being suitable to wear with sports clothing (especially for out jogging). I didn't want anything fancy and to be honest didn't want anything that i'd be devastated at bashing or losing. Now that I've had it a fair while, it's really grown on me and I actually would be upset if lost it. Ahhh, I know.... women!
It's a 'celebs' watch! Woo hooo! *cough*.... that's definitely not the reason I bought it or reason why I'd want to wear it but yes, many a celeb seem to be wearing these watches so if you're into your celebrities, you'd fit in well with your Breo!
Made of firm and strengthened rubber, this very basic watch I would say, fits the average sized wrist. It is 16cm in diameter and very light at 10 grams. In my opinion its a funky, new and modern design, suitable for all ages really, but in particularly youngsters/teenagers. With it being so basic, it would also be ok for junior aged children, although it's definitely the sort of watch that an older person can wear as well and that's probably the great thing about this watch; it wouldn't look out of place on an older adult's wrist. It's very easy to put this watch on as you simply slide it on like you would a bangle. There are 2 other sizes as well to allow for different wrist sizes but I think the largest is 18cm. It's useful to note that the watch is water resistant up to 10 metres which is fine for swimming and great if you've left it on in the bath or shower. No need to panic at least!
The watch strap is made of Tourmaline and research states that it is responsible for lots of health benefits. Apparently it is known for aiding relaxation and improving ones mood. I can't say I've noticed this much myself but I only wear it for an hour or two and during that time i'm usually jogging along or on a high from listening to my music. I would say my heightened mood is more likely to be because I know i'm burning off some calories and am loving my favourite songs, rather than because i'm wearing a watch that magically makes me feel good.
**Telling the Time**
The screen of the watch is very small and as seen in the picture, it's digital. It's a bit of a strange read, because the hours are presented on the top line, with the minutes presented underneath. It's certainly a different way of looking at the time and is a ' cool' feature that makes it different to other watches I have. I don't have a problem reading the time unless am running fast, which let's face it, isn't very often unless the ice cream van's doing 60 lol.
The time can be set to flash or remain constant. The flashing annoys me somewhat, so I have mine on constant. At the back of the watch are 2 buttons by which you set the date and time. You need to use a sharp instrument to do this so I tend to use a needle or pen.
This is a fab little sports watch, easy to put on, water resistant, sturdy and strong. So far over the 6 months I've had it, it's kept its time well. I must mention I am pleased because I had read quite a few negative reviews about this watch before purchasing. I haven't had a problem with mine so far and its good to know that it has a year guarantee anyway.
Missing from this watch is a light. I only bothered about this when was out jogging at dusk a while back and struggled to read the time. It wasn't majorly disastrous of course but it would have been a plus for the watch did it have one.
For the price tag, it's a nice little watch.
Summary: For the price tag, it's a nice little watch!
