Sedi and I seem to have picked this one up at almost the same moment! My initial impressions are very favorable. It has nice size to it -- about 50mm across -- so it has some presence. But it is lighweight and reasonably low profile -- so it doesn't feel like you're wearing a hockey puck (not that I mind that feeling!). Nice crisp, three-part display -- uncluttered and legible. Solar powered. 24 hour STW. The same "record" function re prior workouts as the STW-1000. Ten interval timers -- each of which can be set to 59'59". A world time mode. Five alarms (one of them a snooze alarm) and, of course, an hourly chime function.
A few downsides: Strap is cheap feeling to me, thin and lightweight. It will be interesting to see how it holds up to use. I'd love a separate 24 hour CDT. The light, while functional, is on the dim side. I'd love EL or a really bright LED.
But, really, this is an awful lot of watch for $36! I'd love to see this module in a G-Shock.
It is never a bad time to nosh!!
