Review: Sports Bracelet Watch by ChinaBuye.com
As you'll probably remember, I bought some stuff on ChinaBuye, because I wanted to check out the gadgets they offer. After almost a month waiting for the items (it was my own fault, because I used the free but slower shipping method ;)), I finally received them.

Thanks to the material it's really comfortable and should fit almost every regular sized wrist. They did not include a size, but it has a diameter of about 6.5 cm.
The nice thing about the watch is, that as soon as you get it, you can use it. At first I was a little bit afraid that it would not come with batteries, but it did. Also, the friendly people from ChinaBuye's customer service already confirmed it before I ordered it. So, just rip open the packaging and you're ready to go.
Wait, there was one thing you have to do: set the time, which is again, really easy. There are two tiny buttons on the back side of the casing which are labeled A and M and with the help of a small, pointed object you will be able to set the date and time. And yes, it does not only show the time of the day, it even includes a date. As soon as you are finished setting the time, it will start cycling through the two and instead of two points blinking as a seconds indicator, the word Hello will blink, which is a pretty nice touch ;).
According to the item details, it's supposed to be 1ATM water resistant (which is about 10m) and I can verify that holding it under the running faucet didn't kill it. So don't worry if you actually use it for sports, get sweat all over it and wash it off again–or even wear it when taking a shower.
So there is only one thing left to mention: it's not only available in red, but you can choose from red, black, green, purple, white, blue, yellow and cyan. The price will probably vary (it even does for different colors), but you can get it for as little as around $1 with shipping already included!
