If you have finally decided that you need a watch that is safe to wear outdoors and you don’t have to worry about it taking abuse or getting wet and dirty, I would like to have you take a few minutes to read about the Ohsen Watch.
There are plenty of this type of watch on the market, but like any other product there are good, bad, and ugly ones out there. The first thing you need to ask yourself is, what kind of activities am I going to be doing that requires me to have an outdoor watch?
Some activities that you could use a watch for would be hunting, fishing, hiking, camping, biking, boating, and running. Maybe you work in the elements all day and would like a watch that is waterproof and will sound an alarm at break time or quitting time! Since I am a prepper, I want my watch to do everything but wipe my nose.
The Ohsen Tactical Outdoor Survival Watch has many features that would be advantageous to any of the above activities I mentioned. Let me list some of those features for you.

Looking At Some Of The Features
The main feature that anyone would want an outdoor watch to have would be it’s ability to keep working even if it gets wet. It has to be waterproof and this watch is. The Ohsen is an attractive looking watch that is made to be, not just waterproof on your arm, but it can be submerged up to 30 meters in water and still keep ticking.
If you are out fishing, you don’t need to worry about reaching in the water to retrieve that once in a lifetime catch. If you are out Scuba diving, you can keep track of the time you are out and when you need to get back to shore.
Being able to set the time in analog, digital or military time will please just about everyone. The light at the bottom of the face allows you to see the time even in the dark. If you want to have a fire building contest, you can use the built-in stopwatch. You can set the alarm if you have a deadline or need to meet up with others at a certain time ad place.
The Versatile Watch with Paracord Band
Using paracord started back in WW ll, when DuPont invented a synthetic silk that was named nylon. It was so strong when the strands were put together as a cord that it was used as suspension ties on the paratroopers chutes. Since then, there have been improvement in the cord and man has found many uses for it.
The cord that is used to make the band for this watch has been upgraded to include not only the strong nylon strands but a piece of fishing line and some jute that you can use as tender to start a fire.
Since this is a survival watch, there are other features that are important to survival. One such feature is the built-in compass on the band. This is one vital piece of equipment any survivalist will tell you is a “must have”. You will also have a whistle on the band that can help draw attention to you if you are in desperate need of help.
Also featured is a piece of flint and a stricker so you can start a fire. With a little dry wood and leaves, or the jute that is in the paracord, you can have fire in a matter of minutes.
As far as first aid is concerned, if you should have the need to stabilize an injured arm or leg, you just undo the band and use it. You may need to use the cord to construct a shelter to keep you out of the elements. As you can see, the band on this watch alone is worth the price when we talk about a survival situations.
Hope you enjoyed the video above. You can see that this is an attractive watch and it has many features that anyone could use in a survival situation. The only drawback I can see is the size of the wristband is big, and there is no way to shorten it. If you are just interested in it as a part of your survival gear, then this would not be a problem, but if you wanted to wear it daily then it could be a drawback.
After reading many customer reviews, there were only two complaints. The first of them, unadjustable band on the watch and the fact that it doesn’t come with instructions.
