Cheap chinese automatic movement trying to mimick Vacheron Constantin. Chances are it won't be accurate and it'll probably stop working at the first knock or drop. If you want a good automatic, spend a bit more and get a Seiko or Citizen. I have a £39 Seiko which has Chronometer accuracy.

You're doing well as most are around +-45 seconds per day. My £60 Seiko is around 15-30. My Eta2824 watch is closer to 3secs per day.

I do have a cheapo Soki divers watch that is as good as accurate as the Seiko and was £9.99. Chinese watches are becoming very good.

If you're after a cheap automatic watch with a similar style you can do worse than the 'Ouyawei Herren' (I know, the name!!!) On eBay. It is £12.99 and is by all accounts, reliable and decent value.
Gracias

Carelessly named OP - your title suggests this is a solar powered watch - it's battery powered

No it doesn't.... because i never used the word 'powered'
I know full well that solar watches have a battery in them and the solar cell charges the battery.

Try picking on the Eco Drive deals that are often on here.... they almost always say 'powered by light' and 'never needs a battery'

Don't believe the hype.... Another watch that is assembled in Switzerland with Chinese made parts... Enough to enable it to bear 'SWISS MADE' on the face.

without the Swiss Made moniker, worth £25.

Amazon RRP is fantasy, but still a good saving when compared to prices else where (£30ish saving)

Really bizarre design - mixed reviews on Amazon complaining about how dark the face is. Eco Drives are excellent, used mine as my daily watch (more or less, give or take a few changes) for seven years, still going strong.

I'm not spending all that money on a genuine Apple watch, only to cheapen it with a cut price non-original strap.

What would everyone think of me ?
Mine fits fine and it's got over an inch left on the strap.

If you don't mind waiting a couple of weeks you can find them on eBay from China for less than a fiver.
The ones from China are all too small, for small Chinese wrists.

I ordered 2 a few days after each other, and one arrived yesterday. I ordered via UK priority mail as reading up on gearbest they appear to have a Manchester depot, so I think they must ship in bulk to there then ship within the UK, hence why I think I have had no duty charges. (only guessing there) so that literally took a little over a week from China. Not bad at all:) thanks again OP

Website says for £1.80 for a 10-20 business day delivery. Does it usually take that long or arrives in 5-7 days? The reason i ask is because i am thinking gifting it to a friend on his birthday next weekend.

Too late for your purposes now, but I did the expedited delivery and it got despatched next day - ie 15/3 and arrived today 22/3 as a UK delivery labelled from a Birmingham UK logistics outfit, ie without any international paperwork/duty/etc.

​That's correct, it will not monitor sleep outside of a certain time. I have a typical sleep pattern so this was never much of an issue for me but it did mean that it never tracked naps during the day. While we're talking sleep tracking It also tries to log "deep sleep" patterns, there seems to be literally no science behind this function. Be aware that when they say deep sleep this has no correlation to the scientific definition of deep sleep, it's just periods of low movement. It would have been more accurate to just show you the data where you were restless or awake.
Thanks for replying. I think I'll save some money and not bother getting one. Maybe in the future a version will become available which will have improved monitoring capabilities.

How good are these at monitoring sleep?

I read a review from a shift worker saying it does not monitor sleep within certain hours of the day to save battery drain. Is this still the case or has been fixed via an update?

Quite a flaw if you travel a lot or do shift work and the device refuses to monitor your sleep pattern as it is having a rest.

So are these Yo-Kai Watch games worth picking up?
What are the differences between the two versions?
I played the first game and thoroughly enjoyed it. Makes good use of the stylus and touch screen for battles.
Yo-kai watch 2 has the same story for both versions however there are some yo-kai that are version dependent. I did a quick google search to view the different yo-kai and ended up going with Bony Spirits, but its personal choice.
Hope that helps abit. X)

P.S. there is a short demo available on the Nintendo eshop.
Might be worth checking out if your considering buying the game.

Received today, watch looks fab but it's way too big for my wrists.. Need to take to jewellers to take put some links
You could try Youtube "remove links with at home tools" if you're feeling adventurous - eg, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8uxpDXKOPqA

I got two, one had clear plastic film over the face and was already ticking - the other had nothing covering the face, but it did have a plastic "stopper" under the pull out knob (or whatever it's called, haha) - that starts it ticking when removed. Both immaculate and seem to work fine.

I and my daughter got one of these each three months or so ago. Both now won't connect to our phones.Funny how they both stopped connecting at around the same age Tried reinstalling mi fit, rebooting etc more than once to no avail. Anyone had the same problem?
​yes, my one did the exact same thing. the step tracking and HR count still works, but it just wouldn't connect to my phone any longer.
i even tried with multiple phones and left it until its battery ran out and it turned off (as there is no physical way at all to turn these off and on.
sadly, it still doesn't work. I'm currently trying to get it replaced under warranty as I've tried everything possible to get it working again.

Mine syncs but only shows todays steps and not the previous days. Is that the same problem with yours or yours didn't sync at all?


​mine doesn't sync at all any longer. got a refund from GearBest for it.

maybe a silly question, but you access your steps history by tapping on the step count for today IIRC. is that not working for you?

My MK watch stopped working after 3 years, brand new battery twice too. Contacted MK who told me to contact Fossil, repairs cost more than the watch itself. I paid £140 for a £260 (in store price) watch, I expected longer than 3 years wear. I looked after it too. Disappointed with the brand.

Looks every bit as blingy (if that's what you want) as the MK watch for a fraction of the cost and it's also a subsidiary of Bulova, a watch maker with a great history. I know which I'd buy!
Thought it might come back (sometimes Argos re-stock) but it's been out of stock for a few days, alas.
I commented about it myself on the thread because I like reading about watches and I've gleaned some great insight about watches (and life, the universe and everything!) from some HUKDers. I always tell my teenage niece to pay as little as she can for "fashion" watches and if you wants a decent cheap-ish watch to get a Seiko or Citizen.

A Bulova brand, according to Amazon.com, hadn't heard of Caravelle but looks like a bargain! https://www.amazon.com/Caravelle-Womens-44L117-Display-Japanese/dp/B00GRWTFX8 (Though the case actually says "Designed In New York By The Bulova Corporation" - https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/610aSut-1hL._SL256_.jpg ).
This Badger and Blade thread http://www.badgerandblade.com/forum/threads/bulova-watches.176754/ says that Bulova's parent company is Citizen. Watchuseek describe Caravelle as "Entry Level" or "Budget" Bulova, maybe on a par with one of Seiko's budget brands, Pulsar.
The Caravelle watch has a working Chronograph (I bought two) :)
Edit: I can see some Caravelle watches are as low as $15 on Amazon.com (eg https://www.amazon.com/Caravelle-45A112-Analog-Display-Japanese/dp/B00GG5W1PK ) so maybe the prices vary wildly - but for a fashion watch that looks the part and, I assume, has a working Chronograph function (I mean, I once had a Geneva MK-knockoff watch for £2 from Aliexpress! that was tinny and fell to bits) - it's worth it.

Fossil watches with MK branding.
Not quite that simple.
I don't like MK at all, but they design the watches completely. Fossil just build them.
"Manufactured under license" would indicate otherwise.
Yes - manufactured, they are MADE by Fossil, but Designed by MK.
So they are Fossil watches with MK branding, like I originally said.
No, they are MK watches. MK outsource the construction of the watches to Fossil.
An iPhone is designed and specified by Apple, but it's made by FoxConn - it's still an Apple iPhone.
The A Class Mercedes is designed by Mercedes, but the engine in the A180d is built by Renault - it's still a Merc.
You are buying a Michael Kors watch, they designed it, they specced, but it's made by Fossil - still an MK watch.
It won't simply be a watch that already exists in the Fossil range with MK branding stamped on it, it will be a unique design, only available from MK.

We'll disagree.

Just pointing out that 18 out of 19 reviews over the 7 months since the watch was made available have all been 'freebies' and the only other one isn't a 'verified purchase' either.

A watch obviously needs to tell the time, but there are many other considerations beyond this for buyers to think about. If style is the major issue, there are boutique brands like Rolex or Tag Heuer for men, or Zenith and Gucci for women. But you might also have specific needs in mind, such as water resistance, or sports and fitness monitoring.

Standout Timepieces

Watches can be a centrepiece of your outfit. If you are a professional seeking to add a touch of class and efficiency to your look, a watch can do the trick. When you are attending formal events, a beautiful wristwatch looks fantastic – with the added bonus of helping you get to the party on time.

Wristwatches tend to stand out. That’s mainly because of where they are placed. When we’re out and about, people cannot fail to notice what we are wearing on our wrist, even if we don’t check the time every 10 minutes. Because of this, finding the right watch is a crucial aspect of crafting a personal style.

The world of timepieces is a complex one, with plenty of options to choose from, so here are some useful guidelines for watch buyers to think about.

Movement: Quartz or Mechanical

A good watch isn’t always dazzlingly beautiful. Above all else, it should be well-made, reliable and strong. So, it pays to know a little bit about what to look for in a watch before making any purchase.

The fundamental mechanism of any watch is referred to as its movement. This mechanism is the way that the watch creates a uniform, constant interval between seconds. In poorly made watches, the movement is unreliable and seconds can easily be lost or gained – ruining your timekeeping.

There are two main different forms that this movement can be produced. The first is by using an oscillating quartz crystal, which is set in motion by a standard battery. Since the discovery of the quartz clock in 1927, this has become the most common way to create a regular pulse for watches to use – and it is far more accurate than the mechanical clocks that came before.

Casio digital watchThe second way is called a mechanical movement, and it has a very different mechanism. In this case, the movement is generated by a complex network of gears within the watch, which are kept in motion by a spring linked to the movement of the wearer’s wrist. A special form of the mechanical watch is an automatic timepiece: Automatics tend to run out of juice after leaving the wrist, leading to the need to rewind them every now and then.

Although automatics are almost always less accurate than quartz watches, and they need rewinding, this hasn’t dented their value. In fact, some of the world’s most prestigious watch brands such as Patek Phillipe rely on automatic mechanisms, and watch fans adore them.

The reasons are not technical, but emotional. There is something “alive” about an automatic watch, with its smoothly flowing seconds hand and complex design. People often make the comparison between vinyl and CDs. CDs may have purer sound quality, but vinyl has soul.

Choose the Ideal Type of Watch for Your Needs

Watches come in many different varieties, for different activities and situations – so you may want to have more than one in your collection.

Explore the Depths with a Diving Watch

If you intend to use your wrist-watch underwater, a diving watch is a necessity. Ordinary watches tend to fail beyond a relatively shallow depth of water, and they aren’t well-protected against moisture seepage. Diving watches from brands like Omega and Rolex are something else entirely. Their watches can survive depths of 300 metres or more.

Diving watches also tend to have chemically-treated dials that glow underwater, allowing divers to know exactly how long they have been submerged, while also setting up to use their bezels to count down the amount of time left for a safe dive. They may contain helium beneath the face to ease the immense pressures of the deep, and they will always be made from corrosion resistant materials.

Round Off a Formal Outfit with a Dress Watch

Chronograph watchReturning to the surface again, dress watches have little in common with diving watches aside from their ability to tell the time. These watches are always elegantly designed to complement formal attire, with smart leather straps and a slender, unobtrusive appearance. Their best dress watches are attractive without being flashy. They play their part in a formal outfit without dominating it.

The slender nature of a good dress watch is practical as well as aesthetic. Because they are so thin, dress watches rest comfortably beneath cuffs until they are required, and they don’t create any unsightly bulges. In many cases, dress watches resemble items of jewellery in that they are produced using precious metals like silver or platinum.

Take to the Skies with an Aviator Watch

The aviator watch has a familiar appearance, with its bold (usually) metallic materials, a prominent bezel and a collection of dials and hands on the watch face itself. These dials allow the aviator to provide a large amount of information in a small space – a legacy of their origins in the early days of aviation.

Nowadays, most people who choose an aviator watch will not be trained pilots. The collection of indicators on the watch are more for show than substance. Still, a good aviator watch will present its information clearly. It won’t be cluttered with elements that obscure the basic hour and second hands, and it will be substantial without becoming clunky.

The very best aviator watches are hard to distinguish from chronographs or chronometers. These highly technical timepieces feature a group of stopwatch dials, and are used to measure more than one interval at once. You could use them to measure waypoints when flying or driving, but more common uses could be in precisely measuring cooking times. Either way, they are the most precise analogue watch around.

Find a Watch to Play Your Favourite Sport

Time is a key element of most sports. Whether you are marking the seconds at the end of a football match, or checking how long your round of golf has taken, having a good watch is essential. However, not all conventional watches can stand up to the physical effects of a sporting activity.

Motor Sports

Sports watches tend to focus on comfort. They will often have soft straps that make them less abrasive when running. The last thing that long distance runners need is chafing around the wrist, and a good watch will never allow that to happen. They also tend to have large numbers and hands, so that the wearer can see at a glance what the time is, and how fast they have been moving. Most sports watches are digital – A good stopwatch is essential, while sports watches also tend to be more resilient, surviving the odd fall or immersion in water.

More recently, traditional sports watches have been joined by fitness trackers. These devices are really an advanced form of watch, and many leading manufacturers like Sony, Garmin and Fitbit have designed their products to be ready for casual wear and exercise. You can use them to monitor your times, calorie expenditure and heart rate – making them a good tool for serious fitness fans.

Fitnesstracker

Use a Smart Watch to Take Your Social Life With You

Smart watches are another new development (and in some ways, fitness trackers are a variant of smart watch). These clever little watches blend style and technology, enabling the wearer to access Android and iOS apps, check their social media presence and search the web.

Sony and apple smart watches

Smart watches are developing all the time, but look out for the offerings from established names like Pebble, Apple, LG and Asus – all of which offer watches with a huge range of functions and attractive prices. Be sure to find a watch with the right screen size and not too much bezel, and pay attention to battery life as well. Some smart watches will be better than others for social media or fitness tracking, so be sure to find one with the features you need.

Things to Think About When Buying A Women’s Watch

Aviator watchChoosing a women’s wrist-watch is a similar process to buying a men’s watch, with some important differences. Naturally, there are some unisex options like some aviators, dress watches and diving watches – while fitness watches are designed for everyone. However, there is certainly a distinct range for women to choose from.

Women’s watches tend to have more slender straps and smaller faces than men’s varieties. They also use a broader palette of colours, with golds and pinks a common sight. Single-tone silver watches are a distinctly feminine watch variety, as are classic, square-faced watches with slim leather straps. The key thing is that the watch you choose matches up to your wardrobe and jewellery collection.

Choosing Watches for Children

Some watches are specifically designed with children in mind as well. It’s not really worth purchasing a watch for your child until they are able to use them – probably around 6 years old at the earliest – but getting them into the habit of telling the time is a good move.

Kids also like wearing watches, at least if they are well-designed. That’s why designers like Cath Kidston and Lorus have come up with colourful, dynamic designs for youngsters. Children can tumble and drop things, so choosing a watch with a reinforced or rubber rim is a good idea, but it’s always best to let the child’s own taste guide which one they choose to wear.

What to Think About When Making a Purchase

One thing that all watch buyers need to think about is size. Do you want a huge watch face that is filled with timers, and a large bezel with even more features? Or do you favour something less obvious, that can slip underneath your clothing? You might need something delicate, small and beautiful, with fewer functional elements – or something clunky and purely utilitarian for diving or running.

The main part of the watch is called the case. What size you pick will depend on your wrist size and the purpose of the watch. Generally, men go for case sizes, with a diameter between 30 mm and 40 mm, while for women the range is around 25 mm to 35 mm. However, if you have a large wrist, an even larger case will look fine, although it may not suit those with slender wrists.

Straps are another consideration that has to be brought into the equation. Comfort is really important when wearing a watch, so in most instances, a heavy strap will be undesirable. Lighter materials will sit more comfortably on the skin of the wrist – so consider straps made from leather or canvas for everyday wear. Aluminium is another common strap material that is both light and strong – making it perfect for aviators and driving watches.

Dress watchMake sure that you purchase the right strap size. Generally, straps come in three varieties: small (wrist circumference 15 cm to 18 cm), standard (17 cm to 21 cm) and large or extra large (21 cm to 24 cm). It’s a good idea to measure your wrist before you buy, so that you know your watch will fit properly.

Shape is also something to think about. There are two major watch shapes – round and square – and the one you choose will often depend upon personal taste. Women’s watches often look more elegant in rectangular shapes, which are far less common on men’s dress or work watches. Fitness watches tend to have squared edges to provide more surface area for buttons, and a more streamlined look, while aviators and diving watches will usually be round.

How to Buy Your Next Watch

There are plenty of high street and online retailers to choose from, and they tend to specialize in certain types of watches. For example, a shop like John Lewis is good for standard sports and aviator watches, or watches for professionals, while H Samuel stock many ladies’ dress watches.

There is no bad time to look for discounted watches, as watches are the kind of item that people need at all times of year. However, major retailers tend to offer savings between Christmas and New Year – although you should look out for discounts especially on luxury brands throughout the year.

The best place to find all of the UK’s latest watch deals is the HotUKDeals watches pages. There you’ll find up-to-the-minute discounts from merchants like Amazon, Debenhams, Watches2U, SwagUK, H.S. Johnson and Argos.
