        I love this watch since I figured out the clasp. Instructions are here: http://www.skagen.com/content/dam/skagen/admin/InstructionsAndCare.pdf. The mistake I made was not opening the clasp to expose the post in Step 1. Make sure you open the clasp on the adjustable side so you can see the post, and you won't have any trouble with it not staying on. Hope this helps someone.

        Unfortunately I regret having bought this watch. The design is very nice, and comfortable to wear. Also the display is clear under all conditions. However the glass cracked within 4 weeks, and broke completely a few weeks later. The adjusting knob came off when turned backwards to adjust the time when traveling between time zones. I decided not to pay 115 EUR for repair and throw it away. worst investment ever. I do like the Skagen designs in general but I strongly hesitate to buy one again

        Disappointed

        Comments about Skagen AKTV Watch:

        Bought in June and initially pleased, despite needlessly complicated clasp as mentioned by others. However, 3 months on I am disappointed that the allegedly robust and durable titanium case is showing marks and signs of wear. The mooted toughness of the material was a main factor in my decision to buy.

        My girlfriend got me this watch for my birthday and within the next day I took it off to go into the gym and when I got home the glass had a massive crack in it. I had not bumped it or anything it was in a very safe place. It seems these watches based on all the reviews crack on their own. I will give it two stars though for its design and I love the mesh strap.

        The band was defective, fell off and hit the pavement, shattering the crystal.

        Poor workmanship and not recommended

        I have both the blue and grey dial Grenen watches along with the blue with black case. All 3 watches have been great! They are so light I can almost forget I am wearing a watch. I get regular compliments on them as well.

        crystal cracked 2 times in the first two months.

        Comments about Skagen AKTV Watch:

        I have had many skagen watches and the crystals are impossible to scratch or break. Somehow this model design must be flawed because they crack on their own. I saw it happen myself right in front of my eyes.

        These are my husband's favorite watches and what he loves is how slim and easy to wear they are and how affordable. He has had several of these over the years without issues

        Crystal crack problem

        By 

        from Santiago de Querétaro, Mexico

        Verified Buyer

        Comments about Skagen AKTV Watch:

        Crystal cracks due to thermal cycling stress as the clock was not involved in any accidental hit, smash or any other external source of stress to crack the crystal. This calls for a tolerance design flaw as also turned to be commonly reported in other forums. Repair costs 1/3 of buying a new one. Probably will stay away from brand despite nice looks of the product.

        I love the watch, but the crystal breaks...

        Comments about Skagen AKTV Watch:

        I bought this watch 2 years ago. I love the design, but the crystal is its weakness. Within 2 months I went through 3 crystals. One crystal broke while on a flight where the only thing that could have caused it was the differential in air pressure. My previous watch lasted me over a decade and I never broke the crystal. Apparently I am not the only person with this problem as I have found many reviews on this watch with the same problem. I understand from my watch repair shop that a curved crystal is much more fragile than a flat one. Skagen...please fix the design of this watch so the crystal is flat. I will buy another one when you do. Everything else about this watch is perfect!!!

        Crystal cracked - common problem

        By 

        from Vancouver, BC, Canada

        Verified Buyer

        Comments about Skagen AKTV Watch:

        The crystal (glass face) cracked after approximately 6 months, and I wasn't even wearing it when it developed the crack. Then while still not wearing it, the crystal developed more cracks. Based on many reviews posted in so many other places, this seems to be a very common with Skagen watches. This problem isn't covered by warranty. I do not recommend purchasing a Skagen watch.

        HORRIBLE band clasp!

        Comments about Skagen AKTV Watch:

        I love the watch…but the clasp on the band? Has anyone tried this before it went to production?!!!

        It is the most awkward and time consuming clasp!!! You can't simply put it on and close it. You have lay your wrist down on a soft surface and put it on that way!!! 

        I was going to give this watch as a gift. But with such a poorly designed band, I had to take it to a jeweler locally for a new band!!! (So I wound up having to buy another gift so I would have something to bring, PLUS the cost of the band!!!)



        Your company really has to review these watches completely before you market them to the public!.
