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.
For my purposes, this is a great watch. I plan on using this watch primarily when I travel, so it fits the bill with its easy to read hands and world time function. It looks real nice but will likely not attract too much attention since it's not flashy or extremely large. Solar power from any light source and atomic timekeeping make for a worry-free, low maintenance timepiece. All the other functions of a "digital" watch like stopwatch and alarm are a bonus. The downside of this watch is fairly well-known: the 3 small dials can only be read with relatively good lighting. The light on the watch will not illuminate the face sufficiently to read these dials. I think this watch wears smaller than it is because the actual face of the watch is much smaller than the total width of the case. So if you want a big G-Shock watch, this one is definitely not for you.
Don't have to mess with ordering batteries anymore. Plastic case makes it very light. On the down side.......the "digital" second hand is harder to see and the counter difficult to use when your hands are doing something else at the same time. Plastic face more easily scratched. Overall, a nice "light" watch compared to many of the stainless watches. Less money than the Swiss Army watches that have virtually the same movement. My previous Wenger will stop every so often for no reason. I think, it's the mechanical mechanism for the gears for the dials? All you can do is replace the whole movement (almost $40). Not worth the trouble. Overall, the Casio is a nice inexpensive and light alternate to other watches...and no batteries to replace.
I own an old Casio Pathfinder and wanted to upgrade. By comparison this watch has the same functions, but the speed is amazing! I highly recommend this product because it's useful fuctions and great looks.
