User Review: Highgear Alterra
Price Paid: $150
I bought this watch in the summer of 2006 from the nearest REI store from my house, which was over 80 miles away. I liked the features and the look of the watch.
Unfortunately, pieces of the watch (the name plate and cover on the backlight button, etc) began to fall off soon after I purchased it. It wasn't convenient to drive back to the REI store that I purchased the watch at, so I glued the pieces back on.
About two years after I purchased the watch, the band broke where it connects to the watch. Since the band was not under warranty I just threw the watch in a drawer and started using the old $25 Casio watch that I had before I bought the Highgear Alterra.
I strongly do not recommend buying this model of watch from Highgear and based on the quality of this product, I would seriously consider not any watches from Highgear.
