The only "problem" I have with this machine is that it's advertisement stated that it "has enough volume to play openly with acoustic drums".
I found that even with good earbuds the volume of this machine still won't quite cut it. I've pretty much just had to watch the blinking lights which does work out pretty well. However, I would still recommend this unit for practicing your rudiments and keeping your guitar players in check!(You know how they can be!)

I've had this metronome for several years. I've had some minor problems with it, namely the temperamental start/tap button. I have it mounted on my hi-hat stand and start/tap is prone to triggering when I play with my foot, yet I've had trouble getting it to work when I'm pushing it intentionally with my finger. You have to go through all 20 memory settings, even if you haven?t programed them all, to get back to the beginning. Plus, the memory button doesn't work while a pedal is plugged in. I've also come to dislike the tempo knob, as it's difficult to fine-tune the tempo while playing.Its simplicity is a good thing for most drummers most of the time. But forget about compound time signatures or really doing anything beyond simple time keeping and beat mixing. It can store multiple tempos/beats, but there's no way to program it to loop amongst them. The Boss DB-60 is a cheaper and more capable metronome, but it's also less user friendly.

Comments about Tama Rhythm Watch:

I think this is one of the best full size metronomes I've used. It can mount to hardware on your kit. I tuck it in under the hi-hat. The back lighting was a nice improvement from earlier models. It's still a bit tough to use the TAP feature live, then have to switch modes to see the tempo. I use this live to get the count-offs for each song, and the large dial lets you easily make adjustments. However, this is a replacement to my original Tama...the tap button either wore out, or wasn't manufactured bullet-proof, but it became increasing unreliable.

Comments about Tama Rhythm Watch:

This is a cool gadget, I use it as part of my rig since i have a in-ear setup the (speaker) volume is not an issue for me.
The only draw back is the 2 options for click sounds but otherwise, it has induvidual volumes for all parameters, this is a good feature esp when you are practising those odd signatures,
you can program 30 tempos so no dialing in... I have my set list one after the other. Ofcourse if you miss one you have to go all the way to the end, (i do a quick off/on) :-)
The back light and the blinking tempo leds are helpful
I had a few choices for my upgrade, am glad I found one that has all i need and at an afforadable price.
A sure leader at this price range! in my opinion the item that could beat this is the Boss DB90 but comes with a price tag that alomost twice as much.

Comments about Tama Rhythm Watch:

For practice OK but way too expensive. For live use absolutely not usable. The tap-in function is totally unfunctional. If you need it for live gigs get a Dr. Beat, otherwise get a super cheap click (or ap). I love Tama drums, but this metronome is just a joke.

Tama is very good, could be better

By Tucan

Comments about Tama Rhythm Watch:

This Tama Rhythm Watch is a very good product. But be aware of a few details that are not fully developed. It's astonishing to me that they are selling a battery operated unit that does not have an "auto-off" function that shuts the thing off in, say, 10 min of non-operation. Nope, it will drain your battery if you go answer a call and forget to shut it off. My biggest niggle is that, while turning the tempo wheel while running, it will stutter and 'lose' the beat! It does NOT smoothly follow increases or decreases in wheel movement. The tap function is usually 3-4 bpm too slow. I guess you can just get used to that. I use 2 - one in studio one at home all the time. Also it should go to the "12th" beat, (most common in flamenco). Still, a great tool.

    Good metronome

    Comments about Tama Rhythm Watch:

    Over all this is a very nice metronome to own I would recomend it to anyone who needs a solid meter in their ear.
    This is a very nice device. there are many tempos to choose from and in between beats to help out. the sound is loud enough for me and I play LOUD. It has helped me in recording very much.

    Right On Time

    By jcthedrummer

    Comments about Tama Rhythm Watch:

    I had seen this little device for the first time about 4 years ago, when my drum teacher at that time brought it in and was in love with it. I to was impressed with it. I have almost nothing negative to say about it. It has some great features. It really has everything I need in a metronome. The ONLY thing I don't really like is the triplet function on it is a little tricky to get it where you want, and I do wish it transitioned between tempos smoothly and not stop and start. You won't be disapointed.

    Gimmicks to raise the price

    By Drumguy420

    from Dallas, TX

    Comments about Tama Rhythm Watch:

    It seems to me that there are a few features that do nothing but raise the price of the rhythm watch. The light is hardly necessary, it just drains the battery. The fact that the "beat" feature goes up to 9, as opposed to the 6 in the older model, isn't needed. 7 is appreciated, but the next 2 settings are extraneous (after all, you have 3 and 4 as settings already). I think this newer model is overpriced due to unnecessary features, and certain features, like the start/stop button, don't last very long under conditions like marching band.
