A watch for those who can't stand changing batteries
1 week ago
Summary: Great watch! I had a few different Timex IronMan watches over the years. Let's be realistic though, I'm not running an IronMan nor am I even remotely enthused by the idea of triathlon-related activities! I use this watch at work in a heavy industrial environment. The watch gets wet, dirty, bumped around on things and hasn't missed a beat. I like the solar function because I can't have it quit on me because it's my many wake-up alarms so that I make it work on time.
Summary: After I return the wrong item I received, I ordered this watch. Received in good box, timing is good. Only one thing I have to ask the seller to explain to me and resolve: when I received the watch, the battery level shows: MID. I following the instruction charged inside the window with sunlight for more than 48 hours , the battery level still showing: MID. something must be wrong , either the battery itself or the indicator.
Summary: This is a a cheap g shock with two great options: "tough solar" and "atomic time". I don't have to worry about changing the battery or setting the time. The watch is comfortable and I find it's not too big or too small (just the perfect size to wear while running or swimming).
Summary: The G-Shock watches from Casio are really time tanks. You can use and abuse them all you want, they just keep going. 20 bar water resistant, so it's good for skin diving (not so sure for squba). I replaced a similar watch, which I purchased from amazon.com back in 2012 (Casio GW500A-1V G-Shock Atomic Solar Watch), with this model. Last year, while visiting the family back home, I gave the older watch to my brother - he liked it a lot!
