Summary: You get what you expect with this watch. I bought it for my brother to go travelling with, i needed something that would last getting knocked about and wouldnt matter too much if i lost it. This was perfect, it had dual time, alarm and was easy to use. If i had to draw attention to the negative points they would be: 1. the strap will break at some point, so dont expect the 10yr battery life to actually mean anything, 2.
Summary: i've had this watch a few weeks now and haven't experienced any problems, it seems like a fine overall watch aslong as you don't need the alarm to wake you up!I haven't really been able to find any faults other than the useless interfaces which take up some of the screen but it isn't a major problem infact it probally makes it look better even if it is fairly useless..
Summary: I stopped wearingh a watch about 10 years ago, not sure why, but the urge to find an alternative to repeatedly fetching my mobile from my trouser pocket became irresitible. This watch came up on a deal watching site and once ordered frm Amazon it arrived two days later so good service there. The watch itself is functional and not too flashy.
Summary: This is a nice watch to wear and has the usual Casio functions plus dual time which is very handy for me as I work in two time zones on my PC. Although I like the style of the design, the day and date are too small to see. (Picture on Amazon site was not clear enough in this respect) Casio should have used one of the side buttons to flip the day and date onto the main screen while it was pressed.
Summary: A large part of the display is devoted to some meaningless dials. I would prefer a larger read out of the time or stop watch so I dont have to squint at the elapsed time. The 2-button display/mode stop/start is easier to use than the seemingly unnecessary 4-button controls which are more common.
Summary: Since I retired 8 years ago, I have not worn a watch, using my mobile phone instead for time and alarm. My last Casio had a heavy metal articulating strap. It looked good but it frayed my shirt sleeve. It sat beside my bed for night use (good night light) until its battery ran out in 2005. This new one is really smooth and comfortable. It fits to the third hole and I have very big wrists. Many watches (including other Casios) have too short a strap.
Summary: This is a very clean design, clear faced watch. Some useful functions, but not over-cluttered. The light is not spectacular in the dark, but very adequate (I've had a few Casio's now). The alarms are clear - to me at least - and easily programmable. The batteries in Casio's are usually excellent - one of my old ones is still going strong at 8 years. I've always liked the waterproofing of them, in sea, shower, etc, and never had a problem with that side of them at all.
