This watch features a very bright auto LED backlight with afterglow. The feelings on this backlight were mixed from reviewers. Some praised this highly effective lighting. Others found that the backlight is too bright if you accidentally activate it in the middle of the night and that the timer for the light needs to be longer. As it is, the backlight will turn off after three seconds and some users felt that wasn’t enough time to find the function you’re looking for on the watch.
