Retro-futurism at its finest! The Shark Clip features the original clip band system that ignited the Freestyle brand. Much like a seatbelt, just clip in to keep your watch safe, snug and comfortable. Like all Shark Watches, the Shark Clip is backed by a limited lifetime warranty.


Functionality ★★★★★
The Shark Classic Clip Watch Style:FS84861 is not your average watch.

It has these unique features:

  • 100 Meters Waterproof
  • Displays Time/Day/Date
  •  2 Alarms
  • Heat Timer
  • Chronograph
  • Night Vision Backlight
  • HydroPushers
  • Nylon Strap With Quick Clip

Not to mention the Shark Clip is backed by a limited lifetime warranty.

Design and Aesthetic ★★★
If you don’t mind everyone staring at your now-colorful wrist, then the color options of this watch are perfect for you; if not, get the black version. The bright colors of Style:FS84861 definitely give it a tropical look that stands out among a crowd.

The watch band is like a seatbelt that clips in; one side of the clip is easily adjustable so you can fit it on any wrist size. I have a pretty small wrist, and when I adjusted the band it fit well, but throughout the day it slipped and loosened. I have to take it off and tighten it a couple times throughout the day which gets annoying after a while. They offer a velcro Shark Leash version of the watch which would probably work better if you have the same issue I did.

Durability ★★★★★
The Shark Classic Clip seems very durable. The band and face is made for the water so you don’t have to worry about fraying or any water damage. The watch can take a beating for sure too, I’ve dropped mine on concrete a couple times and it still works perfectly. The watch as a whole is made very well.

Value ★★★
The Shark Classic Clip is sold for $55.00, a good price for such a useful watch. I get compliments on mine every time I wear it, and it’s exactly what I was looking for in a watch. I’d recommend this to anyone who spends  a lot of time in the water or anyone who wants a really cool looking watch.
