I don't understand the water resistance bit, surely as long as you don't go deeper than 50mtr (which is some way) its water resistant, sounds almost like it's no good in water
The INOX watches make sense as 'super tough, drive a tank over them' watches. This watch, as some sort of pseudo-survivalist, strobe signalling light watch, but only with 50m of WR and no screw down crown, does not (in my opinion). It's kind of like it wants to be a good field watch, but then again, doesn't really.

That's not how watch water resistance works (bafflingly)

It's got and led torch and an additional button for that. 50m means it can be submersed but it it the lowest rating for a watch (30m is ok for rain).
Not sure why this is voted cold.

Its more to do with water pressure, rather than a measure of how many meters you are under. So 50m on a watch usually means ok for swimming in a pool at about 5-10m depth maximum. Weird labelling huh?

It doesn't quite work like that unfortunately. The water resistant ratings on watches are tested static and with slowly increasing pressure. As a rough guide you would want 100m water resistance to safely go swimming.

You might get away swimming with 50m but if you bring your arm over and hit the water hard you might exceed the pressure rating.

Dynamic pressure is not significant enough for it to be a problem in most, non-jet ski crash, scenarios. Most manufacturers say 50m is enough for swimming as well. I would say, however, that 50m isn't really enough for whatever on earth Victorinox are attempting to market this thing as (in my opinion)

First hit on Google says 50m is not suitable for pool side diving which imo is a pretty basic requirement for swimming.
