The band breaks after two years of hard wear and tear. But great watch for only $16. People always compliment me on it.
Watch is touted as having a 10-year battery, but they fail to mention a 1-2year watchband, with no replacemenmt available...When the band breaks, pitch the watch!
The comments of many of these reviews are right on the money. This is a great watch, but the darn band breaks in 2 years. Also, the band is not a conventional style that is easily replaced. I have been looking all over to replace the darn band, but have come up empty. So what the heck am I suppose to do with this watch now. I hate to throw out something that works.
This is a very nice product for the price. It has the following features in it.

Very nice watch and it made an EXCELLENT GIFT.
Large display for easy reading; built in light; alarm; stop watch; date; and standard/military time option. Watch is waterproof and durable. Great for casual wearing. Watch is light weight.
This is a nice watch that gives time, date and day at a glance. The display numbers are large and easy to see and the backlight is good in low light. My reason for a less than perfect quality rating is that I know from experience that the plastic band will eventually fail. But, for the price, the value is fantastic. I definately would buy this watch again.
Good watch. Keeps very good time. Numbers are a good size. Watchband lasts about a year if your lucky. Bought at least four of them. One for the watch and three for the watch band since I have been unable to find the band locally. The cost of the new watch is about the same as the cost of the band with shipping and handling. The band is supposedly resin and weakens with time. Got a lifetime supply of 10 year batteries considering I got one with each watch.
i thought thought the backlight is blue though.. dont expect that it to last forever the strap is made of plastic
this watch is worth more than i paid for it...good buy!
I have had it for little more than a week and I like it a lot. It is nice to have the date on the watch without having to push a button to see it. The light is bright and illuminates the whole face so you can see it. The only problem I have is that the band seems to be cheap but so far it is holding up.
The Casio Illuminator is my favorite watch. I wear it swimming, running, biking. I get a new one about every two years not because there is anything wrong with the watch but because the band breaks. I have a drawer full of perfectly goods watches with broken bands. It is still a great watch.
This design of watch has been around for about 15 years if not more. Whenever I see it on sale I want to get one. It has a great design and easy to read display.
i like this watch because it has month,date,year and day. also it is written on the watch 10 year battery, I don't know if it will run for 10 year or not. what i don't like is the watch was running and i don't know how long this watch has been running before i bought as new from Walmart. i prefer new watch with no battery in the watch and will like to have separate battery. so that i may install at the time when i wear this watch for the first time then i can believe battery can or will run for 10 years. but i don't want to replace the battery to new battery from the new running watch whether i know or don't know how long the battery life will be of the new watch. i prefer companies to make watches like this with no battery within plus giving separate battery to use in the new watch. thanks.
love this watch....first thing i did was remove the band and grind off the fasteners for my pocket watch....
The back light is green , not blue. No count down timer. 10 year battery is really not rated for 10 years if you A. use alarm B. use the back light . Otherwise for $16 and change its a pretty sweet deal.
I have an 8" wrist and can just barely wear this watch. I have to use the very last wrist band hole. Other than that, it's good basic watch and easy to use.
I wanted an inexpensive watch to wear at work so I would not have to be concerned if it got beat up. This fits the bill. Has all the info I need displayed without having to push a button. Has a long battery life. I use the 24 hr time instead of 12 so that is a nice option. I don't use a chime or alarm so can't speak to that. I tested the stopwatch once and it worked fine but I don't plan on using that either. Waterproof too although I don't plan to take it under water. Not concerned with style but it looks ok.
I have owned three of this particular model. The band has broken in less than a year on all three. I am about to buy a fourth because it is a great "TIMEKEEPER" at a great price! I will be the first to admit that I am rough on watches, so give this one a try. You might have better luck with the band than the rest of us.
What's the use of a 10 year battery if it has a non-standard special band which only lasts a year and Walmart doesn't sell the replacement? Replacement bands online are $15 and up.
I had this watch earlier and that worked great. Replaced it with a new one, with the new piece it seems to have a single beep every hour. This is happening when I don't have hourly alarm on. There seems to be something wrong with the batch from where it is produced. It is awakward to have this beep happen when in a meeting.
