So I received my new Casio Pathfinder watch 3 days after I ordered it – awesome turnaround time from the vendor (via Amazon.com)!
It feels great on my wrist and it’s noticeably thinner than the previous model I had tried on. Plus, it doesn’t feel too heavy. I went with the black version, as I sort of liked the look of it more than the alternative green version, however my model has a silver band that wraps around the watch face that is quite shiny. This was something I wanted to avoid, as I’ll be traveling to poor, third world countries next year and I do not want to attract thieves or unwanted attention (I may well attract that just by being a white American tourist, I realize).
So, my question is do I return the watch in exchange for the non-shiny green version? Or do I stop worrying and be happy with my new toy?
PS – I know turning the watch face over to the under side of my wrist is one way to make it less visible, and I recognize the most prudent thing to do in some areas (certain African countries for example), may be to remove it altogether.
