Solid Watch

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:True to size

I saw that this watch was on sale and couldn't pass it up. Its my second Nixon watch, so I knew that quality wouldn't be an issue. I was looking for a watch that was durable, water proof, and could tell the temperature and the Baja does all of that quite well. Ive used it while kayaking twice and it held up pretty well. Only thing to be careful with is the strap. Almost lost it navigating some rapids when the strapped rubbed against my side and came loose. Other than that you can't go wrong with a Nixon watch, especially at this price. Looking forward to using it in the future.


Great watch

    I have worn this watch for about a month now and been on 2 trips with it. I love it, the compass and light are more useful than I thought they might be. The velcro band has unhooked a couple times, but never fallen off... might be user error :) Also the thermometer is about 1 degree off when not on your wrist and about 10 degrees when on your wrist... not the greatest. But overall this watch is a win!


    Great watch, durable.

    I love this watch! I have had this watch for almost 2 years now and couldn't be happier, with exceptions.

    Con's: The compass isn't as accurate as I'd like. I relied on this compass when I was traveling to Quito Ecuador and got me turned around in the city, luckily I had a more accurate compass handy. And lastly the Thermostat isn't accurate while on your wrist because of your body temp. Take it of . Strap it to your pack and in 10 the reading will be accurate.

    Pros: The time functions are what you want. Alarm is loud. And the LED flashlight is the most critical thing of all! I have used this might at least once a day for the last 2 years! It is so handy and I have yet to change a battery since I have had this watch! It's remarkable! Best watch I've owned!

    After about a year you will replace the band. I kept the velco style and bought a 3rd party brand at my local outdoor store. If you are a traveler, biker, hiker, climber, and active like myself this is your watch! Crystal face doesn't scratch at all! I have literally fought forest fires, cliff jumped, and traveled south America's jungles watch on wrist the entire time! Buy it, if you don't I hope you don't go cheap on your other gear. It could cost you more than its worth.


    Good everyday wear Good for everyday use

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit:True to size

    This watch is great for everyday use and when hitting the trail. Everything functions well and the buttons and different modes are easier to function than my G shock. The flashlight was unimpressive but does the job in a pinch. Comfortable to wear and the face stands up to some abuse at work.

    What are the measurements?

    Great aside from Thermometer

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times
    • Fit:True to size

    Great watch, fits comfortably. Stylish. Gets lots of compliments. My only knock is the thermometer doesn't ready accurately on your wrist. Body heat influences it and reads around 89 degrees on my wrist typically. If you take it off and let it sit for 10 minutes or so it will give a more accurate reading (within 2-3 degrees).

    Great aside from Thermometer

    Love it

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times
    • Fit:True to size

    I really loved this watch. It had become my favorite. It did have a technical issue and quit working but backcountry replaced it free of charge.

    I'm looking for a knock around watch for my boyfriend and I have 2 quick questions for you:

    1- is there a way to set the time to a 24-hour clock?

    2- is there a function/button to press to get a quick read for Zulu time?

    Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks.


    Quite the watch

      I was torn on purchasing this watch because the velcro strap. Whenever I think of a velcro strap on a watch, I think old man style. I decided to get it anyway, and I was not disappointed. The velcro strap was much sturdier than I had imagined. The compass, flashlight and temp work perfectly. The screen is heavy duty and I don't feel like I have to be gentle with this watch at all. Overall, I am more than satisfied with my purchase.


      Nice watch, but had to return

      • Familiarity:I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

      I purchased this watch as a gift. My son was so surprised, he has been wanting this watch for awhile. Once he opened it, we noticed that there was 3 marks on the face of the watch. We thought maybe it was dirt or something. Under more inspection, it appeared to be actual chips or something under the glass. He said that it would be ok and wasn't too bothersome since it wasn't in the way of reading anything. Well as the day went on it seemed like more chips started happening and was now covering more of the watch. So i have to return it, unfortunately, and either get an exchange or refund or try to find it at a store in our area so we can see the watch before we purchase it. I am hoping just for an exchange. Like I said it seemed like a great watch and not too complicated. He did say that the band seemed tight but wasn't too bothersome, maybe it would have stretched out as he wore it. My son is disappointed that he isn't able to wear his favorite gift until we replace it. I would still recommend this watch to others. Unfortunately this one was just defective.

      Wasn't sure how I felt about velcro band but really like it. The functions are top notch and I am getting plenty of raves about how it looks. Its a cut above.
