Good luck figuring out how it works
22 January 2012
Summary: Bought this a couple of months ago. The watch is great - all the features work as expected and I've even gone swimming a few times with it and did not have any problems. The biggest problem with it is that the manual that CASIO provides is completely wrong: it says 5173 on the back, and that's the operation guide I got and I've also looked it up online, however the buttons and operations do not match. You may think this isn't a big problem, but it is.
Summary: This watch is great for daytime use. During the day it's great, easy to read, love all the functions! However, if you work at night you probably should consider a different watch. It has the glow in the dark arms but they only glow maybe 5-10 mins if your lucky and the light that comes on when you push the button only lights up the bottom (by the 6) not the whole watch.
Summary: Spent many hours reading reviews and want to thank all who recommended this Casio Men's GW3500B-1A G-Shock watch . The manual that comes with the watch is much easier to understand than the one on-line. Small writing, but very easy to understand. Spend 30-min or less reading the directions and you will not believe how easy this watch is to use. The Casio GW3500B-1A watch keeps great time, resets every night while wearing (Maryland/Washington DC area)while you sleep?
Summary: OK, I started to get a bit anal about finding the watch I wanted - I went through 10 watches, and returned them all - except this casio GR3500. I won't write negative reviews about the others, it's just that they didn't have what I wanted - this one does. I travel a LOT. So first and foremost, I needed a watch that could deal with multiple time zones easily. I needed to be able to set them easy, and view them easy.
Summary: I have now owned this watch (ordered from Amazon.com) for several weeks now, and it has exceeded all of my expectations. This includes customer support to get it set up. They were very knowledgeable and courteous in every conversation. The only negative thing about this watch is that one can't read the LCD numbers at night - at all. However, the LCD display is great in the daytime, or in well lighted rooms.
Summary: Hi all, I have been wearing this watch from a month now and absolutely love it. The build quality is and solid and time very accurate. The watch does not seem bulky on the wrist and fits snugly on the wrist. It is light and comfortable and have often forgotten that it is on my wrist. This watch will last me long time like my Casio scientific calculator which is going strong after 19 years. I am xpecting value from longevity and confident that I will not be dissappointed.
Summary: recd my third gshock..i collect watches, and probably have approx 40 watches..Some costing many times a gshock. But i would be hard pressed to find a watch that is more dependable than the gshock... Very comfortable, looks good enough..It is certainly not a watch i would be wearing if i had to dress formally, but for anything else. It did take me a while to get it going. But I admit i am tech challenged. For others, the set up might go quickly.
Summary: If you are an analog watch type of person, then this is the watch to own. The only analog reference to this watch is the display. The hands (hour and minutes) are moved digitally. There is no "stem" to pull out to adjust the time. The accuracy is adjusted through the atomic clock radio broadcasts. The watch is "updated" every night. The manual says that the watch is accurate to +-5sec over a month, meaning it will lose or gain 5 seconds over a month's time.
