I was searching for a watch with the capability of providing altitude information. Most of the watches with this capability were over $***. This watch was reasonably priced and provided all the capabilities I need for camping, hiking, biking and touring. Since I normally wear a lightweight Casio, the size, shape and weight of this watch was ideal. Like all the other Casios I have owned, this is rugged and waterproof. It's a great watch for active people who are looking for something inexpensive but versatile.
I am impressed by the fit and finish of this casio watch. A solid value. I almost sent the watch back. It has a screw type of crown - meaning that to set the time you must unscrew the crown. This feature helps with water resistance.
I have had many Casio's and this is one of my favorite. The smart access technology is really unique and gives a great analog feel to a completely digital system. All of the hands are controlled by independent stepper motors which allows each hand to be repurposed for other tasks such as; the second hand can indicate time zone in world time mode, the minute hand can be seconds in chronograph mode, or the hands move counter clockwise using the countdown timer. My only real complaint with this watch is that it has a limited capacity of features compared to all my previous Casio's. The timer will only count down for an hour, the chronograph is only 1/20 of a second increments, and there is only a single alarm with no snooze option. I purchased this watch to provide me with an elegant look for formal occasions while retaining abilities that analog time pieces do not have and it even more than I had hoped for.
