Bought one a week ago to take on hols as i didn't want to take a more expensive one and it get lost/broken etc.
I have quite small wrists so the 17cm one is OK but a bit tight to get on - if you roll it on rather than pull it on then you should not have a problem with strap snapping as others seem to have done.
You can set the watch to alternate between Hours/Minutes and Day/Month. On the Hours/Minutes screen the word BREO flashes to show the seconds ticking and also allows you to know it is the Hours/Minutes screen and not Day/Month (just in case of confusion)
Wore it non-stop and so in the pool and showering and no problems so far.
All in all a good price for a basic but very comfortable piece of kit - and a choice of 25 colours to boot!
A backlight would be useful but not a deal breaker for me.
Hope you find this helpful.
