This unit could easily be called the economy brand of our Deluxe Talking Watch. Our sports watch has all the features of the more-expensive version, but both the unit and band are made of plastic. A real plus for this watch is the fact that it can be worn by both guys and gals, anyone who likes sports will enjoy this classy design. You can set four alarms to serve as anything from a wake-up call to a Football game reminder ... just get creative. The talking stopwatch will help you time your burgers as they cook, and the hourly chime and date-announce functions make sure time doesn't slip away too quickly. The watch can even speak the time in 12 or 24-hour time. Though it's made of plastic, the band does connect quite firmly to the watch, so it's definitly more sturdy than our classic models. Complete with a clear female voice and easy-to-find buttons on the side of the watch, this is an excellent middle-of-the-line choice. Runs on 1 CR2016 battery, included.
Measures about 2 in. by 1-1/2 in. by 1/2 in.
Package Weight: about 2.8 ounces.
