Summary: This was a christmas present for my son and he loves it and has hardly taken it off since. It certainly has the right military-style look and all the many features are useful. The atomic clock satellite signal is a great feature also--as long as you get the signal the time will be accurate up to 0.5 sec. per day. The only thing I'm not sure about (and the reason for only 4 stars) is the solar powered feature.
Summary: I've owned many of these watches over the years and they have worked flawlessly. I took my Gshock's on thousands of scuba dives. When my grandson asked for one I knew he would be happy with it.
Casio Men's GW6900-1 G-Shock Atomic Digital Sport Watch
9 January 2012
Summary: As a long time user of the Timex Iron Man, I had no idea how nice these G-Shock watches were, until now...Well built, strong and full of features, this is a great watch. I love the solar battery and atomic time-keeping -- both work great! I recommend this watch.
Summary: My mother got me this watch today. So far it's pretty good. It's better than a typical watch you'd get at Walmart for $20 that would break in less than 3 months. This thing is built for tough, I love it. Not to mention the tough solar!!! This thing actually charges itself up when in sunlight. That is really neat! Also like how it sets the time automatically for me. Saves me the trouble of having to set the time myself.
Summary: I wore an older version of the G-Shock when I was in the Navy (1990-1994) and I can't imagine a better watch for the money. Right now I wear a Citizen Eco Drive, but I'm getting tired of having to adjust the date every few months. The new solar and atomic G-Shocks have caught my eye. I just wanted to say how durable they are. During two Med. cruises and time spent on small boats and all the salt water exposure and grease and grime from being a boat mechanic. WOW!
Summary: I loved my last G-Shock. The only reason I bought a new one was because I replace my battery and installed the gasket incorrectly. So, when I went swimming on vacation my G-Shock was no more.... This new one is a beautiful watch, but it needs a lot of attention. The radio update doesn't work as well as I hoped. Also, I have to ensure that the watch gets enough light daily to ensure it is charged....
Summary: bought this thinking that it would be cool to save be green and use a solar watch and save the environment. If they continue making inferior products like this, I won't be green anymore. I bought this watch to use for the weekends. I have a dress watch that I wear on the weekdays and this one is when I dress down on weekends. However, every time i put them on at the start of the weekend, the watch will say LOW battery.
