I really like this watch. It has almost every feature you could ever need. It is really nice to have all of these features in one place. I would not use it for an accurate compass, but you should never use a watch for that. Pull out the old fashion compass and use that to get your way around if you get off track.
I have the blue band and it seems to do the job. I would like it to be a little thicker and more durable, but I would rather them spend the money on the watch and not on the band.
Overall I gave this four stars. I better band would have bumped it up to five. Regardless of the stars this is well worth the money.
