luv it matches my jacket

"Incredibly water resistant" is a bit rich.....

The guide below shows that 50m water resistance means everyday use and swimming, but no snorkelling or anything more than that.

Haven't voted either way but just prefer if people know the facts rather than break their nice new watch.

I think this is common knowledge, I knew this when I was 10 years old. That was before the internet....

Link never works for me from Argos....I am using IE on windows 10...lol

That's great. I'm very pleased for you. Great also that you seem to speak on behalf of the general populace. There's a fair chance some of them however may have been raised on a diet of believing depth ratings and RRP's and the like. Hence my post.

Cold...its not a F91 :-)
Kidding... Good find op.

I had one of these, it only lasted a few months before the LCD would only show the time if you squeezed it and tapped it for a while.

bought same from Tesco direct back in April for £14 very gud

I've got one of these,not the best tbh,feels cheaply made

Pathetic comment, believe or not there is more to water resistance depth. i.e. 30m does mean you can swim with it a depths of 30m, people don't know this. So your comment is pointless.

Pathetic comment?

I have a watch that can reach 1000m, next you will tell me you can swim down 1000m. I'm sure you would die before you reach it.

If you can't tell by my reply, I really don't want to start a discussion.

50m is for swimming not diving, their is a difference.

I own this from when it was first released. Good watch. Basic functionality, but does most things.

Straw man. Completely irrelevent to the argument.

So why reply in the first place with your sarcastic comment when he was just making a valid point.

Yes there is. Swimming is on the surface. When someone goes 50m below the surface it is known as diving!


Or drowning

Good deal but it Doesn't beat my Casio calculator watch

Had one of these for around 4 years. No issues yet. Great little watch.

So "50m water resistant" means "up to 0.5m water resistant"?

Personally, I wouldn't swim with anything below 10atm/100m WR - this seems good value: argos.co.uk/sta…htm


Good cheap watch though.

It's Orange

Ordered one

Yes it's water proof but only for showering or shallow swimming, 50m on a watch is equal to 5 atm, snorkelling would require at least 100m and recreational scuba 200m, pro divers are 1000m +, it's all to do with atmospheric pressure , there you go lesson over lol

I was thinking that 5 at the moments made no sense whatsoever

​its cheaply sold, well worth the price I reckon

voted hot

Voted hot, as a site worker its much better than checking the time on my phone constantly. Cheers Op

I think I paid tenner for this , in black, couple years ago

Still going strong

For teenagers, you dont want to be a spotty faced goofy teenager do you? If you do, i know a few products that'll give you acne.

I would happily pay a tenner to NOT have to wear an orange watch.

Same here, still on the original battery.
Great for work: cheap enough not to worry about, light, maintenance free and has perpetual calendar.

Wow this thread seems to have been made by a bunch of babies.

I think you'll find this generation have been raised on a diet of outrageous battery life claims and 'UNLIMITED up to 1 meeeeelion megabit download speeds* *fair use limit of 1 megabyte'.

it looks like a fake hot deal created by Argos agents

My 11 year old has had one of these for a couple of years now and the way he bashes it about I'm surprised it still works. Great value until he's ready for an Omega

Three strikes for this one I'm afraid: 1) Garish orange colour, 2) Resin strap (the budget Casio resin straps snap within 6 months of use) and 3) no radio control (so will show the wrong time permanently - to the second - after only 2 days). Personally, I think you're better off spending more and getting a Wave Ceptor (e.g. the WV58DU-1AVEF which doesn't suffer from the three strikes).

The watch says 'LIGHT' on the front. Does that mean it's solar powered?

No, that would be the button to turn the backlight on.
