FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Armitron Sport Men's 20/4942BLK Sport Watch

My name is Bill and I have a problem!  I have become hooked on watches.  While the younger generation is looking at their smart phones (I have one) for the time, I still glance at my wrist.  The plus side of this watch is that it has a traditional watch band, not weird clasps that mimic traditional bands, no expansion band just a "traditional" plastic band.   I chose this watch out of those offered due to that fact and that it has a light.  Rather than dig my phone out in a rock concert (classic rock like the WHO)  I like just pushing a button and having my dial light up.   That's the good news.  

Here is the bad, I have 20/20 vision with my bifocals.  The instructions for the watch may have well been printed on the head of a pin.  The font appears to be smaller than 4pts.   I am not at home and don't carry a magnifying glass with me while I travel.   It would have helped with the instructions.   It is possible due to the nearly impossible to read instructions that I am not able to set the date.  I did set the digital time but frankly am not sure how that happen.  The analog time is plain old, plain old, you pull the stem and turn the hands.  I will wear the watch  due to the analog time and the light.   All the other features including date, digital time, 2nd travel zone, stop watch etc may work just fine if I could read the blanketity blank instructions. Considering the fact that senior citizens appear to be the only age category that consistently wears a watch, I would suggest instructions in a legible font size would be a major selling factor.
