This review focuses on build quality, as the unit did not work.
My wife had high expectations for this compass, as it has good looks and the features are just right for her.
When the product arrived, we were a bit disappointed by the cheap build and materials used - the chrome details had ondulations and the fitting between them and the black parts had some gaps.
Even still we gave it a shot. Opening the battery compartment to remove the plastic tab was easy, however the poor fitting of the parts made it really difficult to put the cover back.
With everything put together, the LCD did not show anything although the light was working (a beautiful blue backlight).
A few more attempts and the LCD finally showed something, but we could tell it was inoperative and after some 30 seconds it disappeared again (backlight still working).
Even the battery was replaced, to no avail.
We then decided it was not worth pursuing a replacement due to the low build quality.
I am glad we purchased this at Walmart, as the returning process was a breeze. We repackaged everything and brought to the nearest Walmart store.
