While in malls, I’ve seen people wearing silicone wrist watches like this and I always asked myself why would someone wear that while shopping, because I knew they were considered sport watches? Well, recently I received one for review and I have an answer. Once you get one of these on your wrist, you simply forget about it and keep wearing it everywhere, and I’m a person who doesn’t like to wear watches.
These silicone watches consist of a flexible silicone bracelet with a soft feel and the tiny watch part, which is detachable. The rubber-like finish of the silicone in the bracelet and case is what makes it feel nice on the skin; it’sd a lightweight, discrete, accessory. As it’s flexible, you can quickly put it on or take it off and fit different wrist sizes.
The watch part detaches easily and you need to do that the first time you’re using it because the time and date settings are on the back and you have to stick something thin, like the tip of a pencil, which doesn’t leave marks, to press hard and adjust the digits shown on the display. You can read the time in AM/PM format, just the hour and minutes, and the date (month/day). It also displays “Hello” in the middle of the screen.
Another cool feature is the waterproof capability which allows you to read the time even while swimming. The water-resistance is of up to 1ATM, according to the specs. Basically, you can wear this watch anywhere, at the pool, on the beach, while running, at shopping, and so on.
You can find these unisex watches in many rich colors like green, pink, red, purple, yellow, blue, and white at ChinaBuye.com for $1.01. Mine is the black version of the Anion Negative Ion Silicone Sports Bracelet Watch.
