I like the original myself

by John L

 

Never cared for the newer version as much as the old one, as I owned an original in the late 1980s...it was extremely solid and durable, as well as distinctive (digital watches at the time were mostly black plastic, so a steel digital with a steel bracelet was pretty unique).

But I do like that they've kept the same basic design with the current one though...

Most importantly, I like the idea of a digital watch that's not a "sportswatch" in the run, swim, etc. Ironman mode. Rather, its ethos is clearly meant to be a digital version of a diver/watersports watch.
