its a gd watch in the sense that it works and can be left on pretty much all the time but i did find that cus the buttons are on the back it tends to change the time and date quite alot which is quite annoying

  Useless or just unlucky!!!!!

Bought one of these as a light and cheap watch to wear whilst skiing. Just wanted something to tell the time, northing fancy! Well after taking what seemed like forever to adjust the watch to the correct time zone and to get the watch function to tick I thought happy days! However, every day I wore the watch without fail it lost time and massively! One minute it was telling me the correct time and then the next it had jumped hours ahead to some random time! Adjust again and hey presto the same problem every time! I was this close to throwing it in the snow and being white I would never have to see it again but I may take the effort to return it for another one as I am hoping it was just a fault with mine? Thank god it was cheap is all I can say!!

Had this watch 2 days and all of a sudden today, it's lost 2 hours.
I know for a fiver you can't really complain but it should at least keep the time... Very disappointed.

  Love it!

I love my little Breo watch. It's comfortable (especially for sport activities), and weighs nothing. Unfortunately the strap snapped on me about 3 months after purchase, and the same happened to my friend's too. Luckily Play were great, they exchanged it straight away and even refunded postage costs. If it breaks again, will continue to exchange it until the warranty expires, then spend another seven pounds :)

  Im sorry but these watches ROCK!

I was reading, and was highly dissapointed by other users reviews of the breo products. Let me tell you all this, I own EVERY single colour of this watch. For a cheap price, you get a fully functional, easy to read, comfortable, stylish, and waterproof watch for a bargain.

Let me tackle some of the earlier complaints, to all those who said they break easily, yes they are a form of silicon rubber, and wont be as tough as a metal watch. But i have had mine now for over a year. I take it off every night before bed, and put it back on in the morning. With a bit of care, and not pulling them like a neanderthal brute, they last fine. Im ordering a new one now, cause 1 of mine did finally break... in a WRESTLING match with a friend. Enough said. My closest comparison would be the silicon wristband craze a few years back, they are like a more durable version of them, treat them with care, and they last just fine.

Another complaint is that the buttons on the back break easily. Again, all 10+ i've had for over a year. Twice i've had to change the times on all of them thanks to daylight saving, only 1 of them has broken in this time. Even then, with a bit of fiddling it worked again.

My only real complaint is that they dont have a small light in them, would make them alot handier in places like pubs and clubs.

I wear mine to the gym and swimming pool atleast 5 times a week. Fantastic items. Always get people talking. Yet to see someone that dislikes them aesthetically.

What a great wee watch, theres no chance of it slipping my wrist and no need to be replacing watch strap pins if you snag the watch.
Mine takes a good beating as i work offshore, and is ideal as heavy duty straps are not allowed out there.
Only downside(although i have gave it 5 out of 5) is it says its waterproof but cannot be used in the shower which i thought was weird considering its a sports watch. Also a light on the display would be good or even if the numbers were of a neon colour.
