User Review: Highgear Summit
Source: bought it new
I would like to chip in on this "American issue." First of all, if not for the breakage of my Summit's battery hatch out of force for being stuck of long usage it would still be running good on that rainy day. Then it got water seeping in and display all gone and blinkered and I thought it was dead, but after some months I put in a battery found out that it still work. So in my case my Summit is tough but one thing about HighGear product is that it is so hard to even get a battery hatch replacement out of US/UK whereas I am one of the very few owners of HighGear in Malaysia. My HighGear Summit is really tough surviving a 13 feet hard fall from the ceiling, and another two blows from bike accidents. And commenting on its finishing quality I think there is some issue here that the compass bezel does not really line up on the N cardinal with the LCD point. If one of you HighGear company guys is listening, please, smart up on all these issues in this forum. What good is an American brand if it is not good enough? You guys forgetting the motto to walk "Just one more mile"?
- Low finishing appeal
Easy to use, good display, tough.
Construction is good but finishing is average.
Use on daily basis for work and play outdoor and indoor rain or shine. Use for over 3 years running good until I damaged its battery hatch and rain seeps in. Otherwise this watch is still good. Do not like HighGear spares market, replacement parts are limited outside of U.S.
