I bought this watch before going on a surf trip to Fiji. My first paddle out I guess water seeped in and when I looked at it, the face looked cloudy and the digital numbers were going haywire. It finally stopped working after I pushed a few buttons. When I returned home, I called Nixon to let them know what had happened and they replaced it no problem. They had told me that there was a recall on the watch because there was something wrong with the seal. Anyhow, my replacement watch died today when I went surfing. It did the same thing when I was in Fiji. At least it lasted a year and a half. I'm going to call Nixon again to see if they can help me with it. If not, then I am looking into getting a more durable watch like the Casio G-Shock GXL5600. Hopefully that will last more than a year and a half.
