Well I got this as a gift and it was the right color and weight I expected. A little thick though, I just used it for casual wear. But I'd make sure that the band fits you right because when it was loose on my wrist. The weight of the face or what ever you call it. Kept moving around my wrists because its somewhat heavy. Although I some what was apprehensive, because 5 months later all of a sudden the face read "rom fail" or something like that. And I didn't know what I had done. I called Nixon and they said that the "computer" inside was broken, and that they'd repair it for free. But I read this guys down here statement and I didn't want to put up with that. So i just returned it and switched on over to the private ss. The watch seems to have had potential though.
