      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Value for money for those who lose watches regularly or are looking for a watch for nights out.

      I bought this Too Late Aurora watch after coming across it online, and I expect you may also have done the same recently. Not too long ago the Breo watches were all over Amazon, with their low price and simple design they looked futuristic....until the Too Late Aurora watch came along! The design of this watch is also very simple, but it is a design that holds a feature that makes it stand out from the rest. Towards the outside (if you wear the watch on your right wrist) you will notice a strip of rubber has cut into it the words 'Too Late'. Through the day the watch is said to be colourful - which it is. They come in a whole host of colours from glow in the dark green to bright blue. Anyway, this 'Too Late' strip glows in the dark on the model I have, which is the bright blue one. The pale green watch is completely glow in the dark, and would look at home at an old skool rave!

      The watch comes in an unusual packaging - a glass bottle. They can be bought very cheaply online and are potentially another flash in the pan for watch fans. Personally, I have embraced this design much more than the Breo, and the watch feels more comfortable as it has a traditional strap design as oposed to a band. Made from glowing silicon the watches are resistant to their fair share of abuse, and the anti-scratch design ensures the watch will stay in good nick for a long while. The minimalist design is flavour of the month and this watch fits the bill perfectly especially for those looking for a watch which can be worn with almost any evening wear - provided it isn't formal! I paid around the £12 mark for my watch and I would suggest anyone looking to purchase one should shop around and check Amazon for a good deal.

      The 'Mode' and 'Set' buttons on the front are placed such that they are hidden within the watch design and although the digital watch face is very basic this isn't about features but all about design. The watches are very light at around 15grams and I would recommend one if you are always losing or damaging watches as they are cheap to replace yet stylish.

        A fun glow in the dark bracelet watch

        I got this one as a gift. I already owned a Original edition before I got this one. No matter though, I love the first one so I was excited when I got this one.

        The watch comes in a glass packaging, which is really ecological since you can reuse the packaging. I use my two for storing small valuables and non valuables- rings, buttons, pins... Plus it is quite an eye catcher compared to other watch (cheap range) packagings.

        Too Late watches are bracelet like watches made from silicon. Aurora edition is available in 5 colours and the main feature of this edition watches is that they glow in the dark. I was given the Verde (green) coloured one - this is the model that is on the picture that Dooyoo provided, well somewhat - the colour is not as live as on picture and the picture captures the glow in the dark effect more than the actual colour. Verde colour is quite bland actually and not my favourite pick to wear during daytime - the colour looks like it would be either washed off or the watch would be exposed too sun for too long. Not my favourite colour selection. I have seen other 4 colours and some do look 'normal' some have the same worn look. This is up to you to decide if you like or not, it's not something that happens with time, it's the primal colour, so this is not a bad feature of the watch, just not my cup of tea.

        The glow in the night thing is great! The watch 'charges' during the day, or with artificial lighting and when the lights are off it glows with fluorescent green light, quite strongly might I add and for a long time. It's fun to wear at night, perfect for dance clubs or parties, a definite eye catcher. I should note however that although the band will glow, reading the time might be an inconvenience since the display does not have a light, ironic.

        Watch is waterproof but only until you change the batteries - since the watch mechanism is vacuum sealed and you have to cut open the plastic like packaging to change the batteries - so unless you have a device that could seal the plastic back, the watch won't be waterproof anymore.

        The watch is perfect for all occasions, great to use with sports, although it can't be described as a sports watch since it only shows date and time, for as long as it is waterproof you can use it in watter without fear that you will loose it, it's a good watch for everyday use, day and night (unless you don't like the colour). I think it's priority is being a fashion accessory.

        Setting date and time is easy.

        I love the watch, sure I would have love it more if it was different colour (white would be grand!) but what can you do. It makes a lovely gift, especially for party girls and boys. It certainly is fun to wear. It weights only 15g so you won't even feel that you have it on, it fits perfectly and won't stretch so there is no fear that you will loose it.
