Summary: Nice looking watch for the price. It works well and keeps good time. There are three problems however: 1. The built in alarm keeps going off and I can't figure out how ro get it to stop. 2. The instruction booklet is printed in such SMALL type that it's impossible to read. 3. The built in light for the dial doesn't do the job. It's hard to read the dial in the dark.
Casio Men's Ana-Digi Light Sport Watch #AQ180WD-2AV

Summary: Likes: Looks good and is comfortable once you figure out the band ajustments have a key system. Dislikes: 1: Advertized as stainless case. It is mostly stainless - but the body is RESIN where it connects to band. I have had a few Casio watches and they have all broken where the band pin meets the watch. 2:Very poor lighting. cannot read time at night. Uses small fillament bulbs that do not do the job. In this day and age of LED's I am surprized Casio did not do better.
Summary: Be careful in ordering this watch. While the description indicates that it has a stainless steel case, this is incorrect. The important part of the case--the part that holds the pins connecting the watch to the band is made of plastic. In my case this meant that it broke in about a year. Of course Casio does not warrant the case.
Summary: I was really excited to find an inexpensive, good-looking watch, with an analog face and an alarm. This watch has all of that, and while it is a little thick, that's not the problem. The main bother is the battery life. Either mine was defective, or this watch has an incredibly short battery life. I went through 4 batteries in the space of a year and a half. On the last attempt to replace the battery I accidentally damaged the inside, and broke it.
