Casio always seems to build a great product. I like the fact that I will not have to replace batteries. The face looks good and the features are immense! Even for Casio.
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.
I've had this watch about a week. I really like it. I have previously owned Timex Ironman watches, never a Casio or G-Shock. I am very impressed. I think the Casio G-Shock is a superior watch. I have been interested in a solar charging watch, the atomic clock automatic setting is very enjoyable. Keep the watch in the sunlight and near a window at night and you have a watch that is charged and set to the current time (if you get the atomic clock signal, which I do). The watch is great looking with many features. I find it comfortable and am very happy with it. I do find the watch to be rather tall/high on my wrist but I will adjust to this over time. I would advise anyone interested in this watch to purchase it!
