The Nixon A116-000 is an striking and eye catching, any occasion style of watch. It’s stylish enough to wear on a daily basis, to the office, to the gym or out for drinks with friends, and yet durable enough to endure an active lifestyle. It looks attractive and tasteful on the wrist, it’s a very smart watch that you’d be proud to wear. You could happily go for a jog, quick game of squash or a bike ride, without an worry of damaging it. Originally designed by people who embraced the outdoor life, with a significantly sophisticated upgrade in appearance.

It’s a plastic cased watch, covered with a scratch resistant mineral. Weighing 6.40 ounces with a 40mm diameter, it’s lightweight and comfortable. Water resistant to a depth of 99ft and a highly efficient analogue Quartz movement boasting a luminous LED screen.

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Water Resistant
  • Large watch face
  • Unique to look at but Smart Casual.
  • Comfortable to wear

Cons

  • No date display
  • Can fog up when submerged in water, needs to be wiped clean
  • Wrist band not covered by warranty
  • Plastic Casing
  • No alarm function

Conclusion

Overall I think it is quite an attractive watch, however I do think it lacks functionality for everyday life not having a date display or an alarm. The fact that it is lightweight and water resistant is useful, but I am unsure as to the reliability of its water resistance. I’m not convinced it would cope with a good long shower! The LED display is a cool function, the two dots make it quite unique and quirky which I think adds to the character of the watch. For someone with a very active lifestyle, it’s ideal that you don’t need to take it on and off every time you want to out for a game of squash or a run, but I don’t think it is durable enough to withstand any activity with a little more gusto.
