My husband’s watch has been around almost as long as I have. For any of you regular regulars, you will know that is over 12 years already. For graduation in 1998, my husband’s parents bought him a really nice Esquire watch and he has worn it ever since. It is only recently that he has put his Esquire to rest in exchange for one of the newest types of watches out there – the Tech4o.
For review, my husband received the Mens accelerator in carbon. This is more than just a watch, it is also a pedometer, and has a personal profile, along with the regular watch functions such as a stop watch and alarm. My husband has been wearing this watch for over 3 months, as has not once said anything about his old watch. I was throughly surprised that he is still wearing his new Tech4o after such a long while and hasn’t reverted back to his old ways. It’s no surprise though, as his new watch is sleek and a little more up with the times than his old watch was.
When it comes to technology, my husband is the first to know about it and want it! So when pedometer’s first hit the market, you can guess that he had one and used it regularly. He enjoyed putting the clunky box on his belt and marched around the house and outside counting along with each step. When the watch arrived, he took it out of the package, and put it on his arm, and started walking around. However, the watch isn’t quite ready to be put to use straight out of the box, it needs to be programed – which is great because as we know each person is different, I take about 2 steps for each step my husband takes. However, it seems getting the watch calibrated has been quite a daunting task for my techy husband. The instructions to calibrate do look a little overwhelming, but are very understandable once you read them through. You can calibrate everything from your weight, age, height and stride. Set aside some time to get your watch programed, it will take a while.
If you are looking specifically for a pedometer then the Tech4o is an excellent choice as it is always ready, right there, on your wrist to count your steps. If you are looking for a ultra sleek watch, the Tech4o has all the regular functions of a digital watch (plus can be used in water up to 50 meters deep – tested and worked) and is at a very good price point for a digital watch.
My husband wears this watch everyday and really enjoys it (although he uses it solely as a watch).
