I have had my scout for over 4 years and thing is still working as if it were brand new. The metal around the face scratches easily, but it's not too big of a deal. The hands glow at night, but only if you were in direction sunlight before or else you get very little to no glow. It's super accurate and the band is still in pretty good condition after all of these years. There is apparent fading, but it still looks very nice. The only bad thing about my band is it kind of soaks up smells if it gets into contact with a some kind of potent liquid...for instance my band has a slight formaldehyde smell and this hasn't gone away for a few years now lol. So if I am every dealing with something that may come in contact with my band, I usually will just take if off and this includes when I am washing dishes.
