Columbia Singletrak Watch for Men
No date on display is unbelievable...
When I purchased the watch I tried out the compass feature against my Suunto Core that I was wearing and I found that it worked very well, and I liked the speed at which it acquired and calibrated (faster than Suunto). But after wearing a few days and not being able to figure out how to get the date to display on the watch I finally broke down and read the manual only to find you can't display the date on the watch. I was shocked and incredibly disappointed. If this watch had the date displayed instead of the temp it would be perfect!! What a BIG miss on the product manager's part. My new $125 watch now sits in my watch storage area and I am wearing the Suunto again.

Love the look and style of this watch the big face fits my size and the light up feature is really nice too. Unlike what other reviews say you can display the date on the watch by simply pressing the start/lap/recall button. It's a really easy to figure out watch. I have had watchewatches that if you lose the manual it is impossible to set not this watch. All around great watch

The watch does display Date (1-12 for Jan 12) and Day (Mon for Monday) on the Time function. Toggle between the Date (1-12) and Degrees display by pressing "Start/Lap/Recall" (top right) button. I don't know if this is a change by Columbia or they just did not put it in the instruction manual. It is a large watch, but I knew this already. There are two things that are not perfect: The light is not very bright and the buttons get pushed easily changing the function when you don't intend to. I'm being picky to find those two "faults".
Shipping was good as it normally is with BPS.

I'm a big guy, so the large face on this watch fits me great, not to mention it's relatively light and looks great. I got the all black version. It only took me about 5 minutes to learn to use all the functions. The compass is accurate, and the watch is easy to read. I really like the water resistance and ventilated band because i get my hands wet a lot fishing, so it dries out quickly and doesn't get clammy.
Definitely recommend this watch, although, it may look a bit large if you're a smaller guy.
