“ Brand: Too Late / Watch for: Men & Women / Type: Silicon „
Bracelet sport watch? Why not! Silicon watches have certainly became quite trendy.
My eye was set on this lovely watch (Lillac colour) for quite a while and the only thing stopping me from buying it was thefact that I don't actually need it. But that obstacle was soon overcome. I now have two Too Late watches one from Original edition and one from Aurora edition.
Original edition Too Late watches come in 15 colours. I got my hands on Lillac, it is a very live colour, vibrant. Well all colours are. The best way to describe them would be they look exactly if not even better as they do on the promotion pictures!
The watch comes in a glass packaging (you can see it on the right side of the picture Dooyoo provided) which I personally find very cool and ecological, you won't be throwing it away and thus make more waste (well with the exception of manual that is included in the packaging), you will probably store it and use it for something else.
The watch is made from silicon and is really light (15g). It is quite durable, it won't tear nor will it stretch. The colour won't fade. You can wear it as an accessory, when you go running, on the beach, everyday life... From this point of view it deserves 5 stars.
It is also waterproof, but this only goes until you have too change the batteries. The clock mechanism that is inside the silicon band is vacuum sealed in see through plastic material. So if you need to change the batteries you will have to cut open this plastic and by doing this you will loose the waterproofness of the watch. An inconvenience but with watch selling for about £10 not exactly something you would get fussed about, you just have too look at it more as an fashion accessory than a sports watch - if you plan to use it in watter.
Features are quite limited, you can see the time (digital) and with a touch (hard touch) on the button you can see the date. Setting both is not to hard, buttons are easy to navigate and although you do need to push harder to set it it is not mission impossible - I reckon it is set in the way that you can't accidentally push the buttons/set the time.
I love this watch, I don't use it with sports though (exception is beach or pool) - I never like to know how little time has passed since I started exercising. I think it is a great accessory and a decent cheap watch. I have it for 6 months now and the battery still holds so I can say I still have a waterproof watch. It's really easy to wear around, you actually don't feel it most of the time, it can get a bit sweaty under the band if it is extremely hot, but with normal hot weather I did not have any trouble. It fits perfectly - it is rather flexible.
A lovely watch, that can make a lovely gift and on top of that a rather ecological one (just don't buy the wrapping paper)!
