I leaped before I looked...or searched.

Ordered my White Face / Black strap in the hopes of being able to purchase additional straps and swapping them out as the mood (or shoe)fit. After about an hour of searching (Googs, Azon, ConV themselves) I cannot find the straps by themselves available for purchase. Very disappointed and looking to cancel my order, as this nullifies the whole reason I wanted it. Hopefully CS can help me! Anyone else tried looking for straps?

I'm surprised this wasn't mentioned earlier, but The Mother Ship has these for $45 and up (those that are in stock).

I'd love to hear about the ability to read the face from someone who has seen the watch in person. I got burned by a Fossil watch that created a lot of hype because it was advertised in Maxim more than a year before its release. When the watch finally came out, it turned out Fossil used "enhanced" images in their advertising and you couldn't actually read the time while wearing the watch. Despite my earlier joke, that really is an important feature of a watch for me!

You didn't mention searching on eBay. I've purchased watch bands there, although not in this style. (Isn't it called a NATO strap?)

Any old strap should fit if it:

    - is one-piece;
    - has two ends that
    - can be joined, and
    - is narrow and thin enough to fit through the gap....

and if it fits your wrist (or whatever body part you wrap it around).

So the traditional-style two-piece band with those annoying compressible posts won't work.

A one-piece rubber loop won't work.

Duct tape will work (trim to fit).

Or look at our phones, cable boxes, appliances, or any number of other places where there is a functioning clock. I've got three in my view as I type this. I'll admit one is a watch.

I work in a busy restaurant and needed a basic watch that Im not afraid to get trashed a little. This is perfect.

Crazy company... putting their logo on their product. Make me guess who makes this watch! And what is all this crap interrupting my television shows? They keep showing me products and services!!

Went in for one because I didn't have a watch that wasn't either metallic or rubber strap. Hoping I get black face but figure either should be okay with that olive color band. Definitely agree this will be more of a form over function.

Hi there,
If you're looking to cancel your order, you should be able to do so through the "stuff you bought" section or by mailing support@woot.com!

I'm just hanging out, really.

I think the face color confusion comes from mobile phone users. The captions aren't there on mobile. Easy solution is to view the full site or..large face black small face white.

Ordered mine! Love anything Converse!

Thanks, Woot!

You can't choose the face color because the combinations are pre-determined. If there is a black face with black strap pictured, it will have a black face.

The 75% discount to MSRP ($65??) seems a little silly. Just goes to show how meaningless MSRP really is. I was going to say that at $15 these seem like overpriced junk; if you're looking to spend $65 on this watch, I have a whopper of a deal for you --- ten dollar bills that I would be happy to sell you for $20, which is a 50% discount to their $40 MSRP! What a deal!!(???)!!!

Interesting. Lots of watches wanted in Utah, NO watches in Wyoming.

Do they just not need to know the time in Wyoming? In Utah, they need to catch up?

I feel the same about the Rolax logo on my watch. Wait..."Rolax"?

just wanted to mention that black dial on black face would most likely not be as big of a problem as you'd imagine.

i own plenty of watches with that combination. the usual way you'd be able to tell time is simply to tilt your wrist so the watch isn't facing directly at you. per my experience, the sheen off the dial would be different from the faceplate and it's very easy to tell the time by the light reflected. usually, the faceplate is pretty much matte, so it's even easier.

I personally like the black on black, I bet the hands are much easier to see in person than they are in the photos. (no experience with them, just guessing)



I bet you have a drawer full of crappy watches you bought on the Internet.

Anyone know where these are shipping from? The USPS link says tracking information isn't available online. But I guess it's consistent with the "watch that doesn't show time."

Arrived today in the mail.... The ladies one was well received by the Mrs. and the face isn't difficult to read (white face/black band)... The mens (black face/black band) was DOA :'( .... possibly a dead battery, gonna see if can be replaced and fixed.

Overall, they're sharp looking and comfortable.

I waste my time waiting for Woot to send my stuff.

This is not cool...I thought it would be cool ...black on black..I just thought it was hard to see in photo...no guys..you get it and there is no cool reflection or cool secret way to make it visible. I got 2 for my 2 grandsons. and now they are going to think I am not cool at all and I went to a Van Halen concert a couple of years ago.

You know what's really not cool? The fact that the tracking number for my order just went live today (the 12th), even though Woot claimed to have shipped on the 6th.

Just got mine in the mail and the colors are all wrong. Ordered two black, large watches and one red, small watch. Instead u got two small red watches and one large red watch.

What should I do? Obviously I don't want the wrong color watches. Only one out of the three is right.

So, as usual, it was a problem with USPS, not Woot. The order was delivered yesterday, but USPS hadn't bothered to update their tracking. Thank you Woot.

sorry about that. you might contact Converse directly, or email Support@Woot.com for a resolution.

Not sure if you should post that? This slightly-nsfw-flowchart will help.

Black on Black, white on white. How do you 'spec to see tonight! Or in daylight for that matter, unless you get the right angle to the light to throw a shadow. Can't believe Woot allowed this through. To the moon with you. Woot-wiser, I have slowed way down...

definitely a day time watch because you can't see the hands. More for a fashion statement than for utility. Cool looking though
