The first thing I noticed when I tried on the Sprout ST/6500MPDP watch was how light it was. The Sprout wrist watch had a large face and strong band, and looked like it should be heavy and cumbersome. I was pleasantly surprised to be proved wrong.
The mother of pearl face was large and readable without being bulky. The butterfly closure made the watch easy to get on and off, while still holding the watch secure, and the light up dial allowed me to see the time even in poorly lit places.
One of the best things about Sprout wrist watches is that the company strives to be eco-friendly, without lowering the quality of their products. The Sprout watch came in recycled packaging, and it felt just a little better knowing that the watch was made with complete consideration for the environment. Many eco-friendly products end up being dull and muted in color, but the Sprout watch came in a variety of vibrant hues.
At least 80% of the materials used to make Sprout watches are natural, low-impact, biodegradable, recyclable or renewable. Sprout also uses mercury free batteries.
The Sprout watch didn’t have any spectacular features, but it performed the basic functions of a watch admirably. Sprout’s commitment to the environment is what sets it apart from other similar products. That, along with the light weight and easy to read face, makes the Sprout watch an excellent choice for anyone in the market for a new timepiece.
