Summary: I bought two watches, one for me and one for my son who was going into the Marines. This was in late 2008 or early 2009. We both still have our watches five years later and they both still work great. I have not changed the battery on mine! The strap was starting to smell and I was tired of washing it so I strapped the watch on to the handle bar of my KLR650. It has been there now for a year and still works great. I have not changed the watch band nor batter.

Summary: I looked around a lot for a watch like this, and read a lot of reviews before buying it. I wanted a good, dependable EDC (every day) watch that could time me on runs, hikes, and help me out on the trail with some general direction, all for less than $75. I actually ordered the comparable TIMEX (Expedition Trail T49612) version of this watch and sent it back. The TIMEX was huge, hard to read, and just didn't look good (greenish markings on huge black rubber case).
Summary: I love this watch. I bought it for backpacking, but like it so much I use it for every day wear. I read through tons of specs and reviews on watches with a compass before ordering this one. This is an awesome price for a watch with an accurate compass. The compass seems to match up nicely with my standard magnetic compass, and can be set for custom declination.
Summary: its simply one of the best, if not the BEST name brand products that I've always worn either for work, sports, or recreational use. You CAN NOT beat the brand. GREAT! products at very understandable pricing.
Summary: My husband absolutely loves it! It does just about everything he wanted a watch to do without paying through the nose for all of the features. He likes the material band better than the leather ones as it allows his skin to breathe, but the material does start to stink from sweat after a while. All in all, would definetely buy again and recommend to anyone who wants a great watch!
Summary: I wanted a watch i could see easily with bigger clearer numbers not silly little icons and this does that for me as iam starting to need glasses these days . I like the webbing strap , its not sweaty an its strong . I also wanted to wear the watch for scuba diving and this had the depth ability and more and again the easy to read and big buttons i can press while wearing gloves and a strong strap make it a good diving watch.
With its simplicity, there's no need for upgrades .. BEST WATCH EVER!

Summary: this is my third watch in the last 4 years; previous ones have been 'misplaced' and/or 'battered'; and I am still faithfull to the design and overall usefulness and simplicity of this watch!! Casio hit a HOME RUN with this one and would recommend it to anybody!
Summary: I'm using it from a year ago, and is performing very well. I wear as my daily watch and it has the same look and finish of the first day. Don't like so much its nylon bracelet, because its a little too rigid and always flip the watch under my wrist, which puts it in risk of unnecesary damage when I am on a desk or table, for example.
