Rated 1 out of 5 by from quality poor Mayhave been unlucky withmy purchase but put me off pointer on watch move around as though it isnot designed to tell the time, looses about 6.5 hours per day in time. I wanted to use it as a normal watch as well so will return to the store for a refund.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Quality Bought this last time and found it next to usless. Camera is really poor quality and does not cope with movement at all. Stay clear

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Audio issue Despite the other reviews that state the video to be very poor I found the quality to be 'ok' considering the device type. However, the video soundtrack is nothing less than appauling, and sounds like your talking into a bucket a million miles away even when your close to it. The mic also picks up the ticking of the clock which is quite loud! clearly it would have made more sense to have designed it as a digital watch.
