Carbon 14 Sport Digital Watch

This lightweight sport watch features a magnifying lens and an LED flashlight
Text & photos by Joe Flowers
  • The Carbon 14 Sport  watch combines the normal functions of a digital sport watch (stopwatch, 24-hour timer, 4 daily alarms, water resistant up to 165 feet, light weight) with a magnifying lens and a high-intensity LED flashlight.
  • The 3X magnifying lens is not spring loaded, which I find to be a plus as springs get fouled up with sand and muck.  The lens opens by pressing a small button and pulling the lens up.
  • I was able to start a tiny fire on some tinder with the handy little magnifying glass.
  • The watch has a backlight feature to read the time, but the high-intensity LED  emits enough light to be headlamp backup,  and perfect for maneuvering around the tent without waking up  your tentmates with a blinding light.
  • <b>Bonus:</b> It doesn't take up your whole arm with features, either!  <br> <b>Weight:</b> 2 oz.  <br><b>Price:</b> $69.00 <br><b>Sizes:</b> Mid/Full (refers to face width - same price & weight)<br> http://c14time.com/sportdigital

Remember as well that the Water Resistant Depth Ratings don't actually mean water resistant to the depth mentioned. Its a code. Resistant to 165 ft ( 50 m ) actually means
A watch with this level of resistance is wearable around household sinks, while playing sports and while swimming in shallow water. Do not wear it while bathing, snorkeling or scuba diving.

Sneaky eh?

Got this watch at an REI garage sale for 20 bucks!! The person returned it because they thought it had fog under the face of the watch... it was the plastic coating starting to come off!!!!!!!! HAHA sucka. It works great guys the light is unbelievably bright and is great for nightime movement around camp without the headlamp. I also have started fires with the magnifying glass. (SAVE YOUR DRYER LINT!! THE GREATEST FIRE STARTER)
