The Good: Incredible price, wide variety of colors available, multiple functions.
The Bad: Questionable quality.
The Bottom Line: For children-focused campaigns, the customized Canvas Sport Stopwatch may be an acceptable choice, but we recommend going with something higher quality.
Design (3/10): (top)
There’s nothing particularly wrong with the design of the Canvas Sport Stopwatch. It has an adjustable Velcro strap which makes this item a one-size-fits-all. The stitching is shoddy, though, leaving lots of loose strands. They can be clipped off without disturbing the integrity of the structure, but it’s still annoying.
Features (6/10): (top)
The extra features include day, date, alarm and time, which are easy to set. However, the light function is next to useless, coming from a small diode and not strong enough to illuminate the readout. The colors include red, yellow, green, blue and purple, and there is a single sheet of plastic over the display to prevent scratches during transit.
Price (6/10): (top)
The personalized Canvas Sport Stopwatch works well enough, but it simply cannot be classified as a high quality item. The pricing is all right, but if it is to hold up to any kind of scrutiny, we recommend shelling out a few extra dollars for a higher quality watch like the Sunray Sport Watch.
A custom imprinted Canvas Sport Stopwatch isn’t an overall “bad product,” but its careless stitching is a point of concern. If the campaign is aimed at kids who won’t really care or they’re being used for only a single event, they fit well with leaner budgets. For longer term, high retention campaigns, you may want to try something a little sturdier.
