Rated 1 out of 5 by SurgRN don't waste your time or money... I've had this watch for about 2 weeks; its starting acting up the same way the FIRST ONE did!With the 1st one, I thought it was a low battery; got a new battery and it still would only take the pulse about 1/3 of the time, and it would sometimes try to take a pulse reading when I was NOT EVEN wearing the watch!! Really? Yes, really! In the trouble shooting section, it says that dry skin or excess body grease may prevent the watch from detecting a heart rate....when you workout and sweat....there WILL BE BODY GREASE AS WELL!! Wiping the wrist and back of watch did NOT help at all....as the instructions suggested...will not waste money on a new battery this time!So now the exact same watch (I returned the 1st one for the 2nd one) is starting to do the SAME THINGS.....ie, only take a pulse about 1/3 of the timel! And when you get a heart rate watch, you'd LIKE to have it measure a heartrate-DUH! The steps and all the other features work, but not the heartrate, on a consistent basis.I just ordered a Mio watch from Amazon-I had that watch before the s12 sportline, and it went strong for over 6 years! Would still be using that watch, but I lost it-thats when I bought this S12 sportline watch-which I will return for a refund when the Mio heart rate watch arrives!! 08/14/2011
Rated 5 out of 5 Perfect for walkers! I have had 2 of these - bought a new one when the battery went dead in the first one. It seemed to be cheaper just to buy new. The first one lasted 3 years, the second one is still going strong after about 20 months! I plan to buy a third when the battery dies in this one. I walk 5-10 miles everyday, sometimes fast, sometimes slow, and this keeps me in touch with my heart rate, speed, mileage and calories burned. It does everything I need it to do and it is VERY accurate with the things I can gauge - miles, HR, etc. (Not so sure about the accuracy of the calorie counter, though.)Easy to use. 07/24/2011
Rated 1 out of 5 by TheFinnalDecision Not so good This watch easily scratches and breaks. Pulse sometimes slow or none working. Hard to use. The old saying is you get what you pay for and I do not think I got what I payed for. Overall I say do not get this watch. 05/23/2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Kelliemom I love my S12 Does everything I need it to. Pulse, steps, calories, and so much more. Works like a charm. Have had it for several months and I love it. 06/28/2011
