Small and compact
The small aluminum case of the Falster 2 is now waterproof, so that you can dive up to 30 meters deep with the watch. The watch should also withstand salt water. With the bracelets you can choose between several versions - for me the black silicone bracelet is the clear winner here. When I had the Falster 2 on my arm, I noticed that it is very light and feels very comfortable with the silicone bracelet.
