Casio Digital Lap Memory 60
Advantages: Amazing features and cheap,
Disadvantages: Only comes in digital form with resin strap
I purchased this watch years ago now. In fact I cannot remember how old it is but I will guess around 4-6 years old. In this time I have taken this watch on holidays, swimming, to bed and general everyday use so it has probably been worn for around 3 years continuously now - and it is still working! (An amazing feat for me as I seem to destroy watches somehow). At around £20 this watch is a steal and comes under the model of W752-2AV if you're searching for it on the internet.
With the full technical details listed below I will just outline the major areas that I have used and needed here.
Firstly the water resistance has shown itself up to be brilliant and although I have only tested it to a few metre underwater it has always held up perfectly and stayed sealed. (Changing batteries may break this seal but if you have them replaced by a professional you should be fine).
The LED light shows up the watch face very brightly and clearly so you read it even when in a hurry. In a shade of green/blue this light is not straining on the eyes either and is triggered by the large light button on the front that is easy to find when in a rush.
Also worth a mention are the alarms. Most watches that I have had allow you to set just one alarm but this watch has up to four daily alarms and one snooze alarm so you won't have to change the times of things every day. For such a cheap watch I feel this is an incredibly advanced feature and many more watches should have this.
Marketed as a sports watch this product has a lot of counting features including a 60 lap memory and pace function, so it bleeps so you can keep to a pace which I have found handy on many occasions. With countdown, stopwatch, hourly signal, calendar and much more you won't be left hoping for your watch to do anything else as it does everything you want it to.
This is a sports watch so it's not meant to be the height of fashion but I actually think it is still quite stylish. With a sleek and smooth appearance that opens up to reveal a whole host of very handy features this watch will look good whilst it both feels great and performs to a high standard. With an easy to read display and looks that match the body with the strap I think that you should be proud to be seen with this watch on your wrist.
This watch states it comes with a ten year battery and well my watch is still working perfectly now. The battery supplied is the standard little CR2025 button cell so it will be easy and fairly inexpensive to replace - even though you won't have to replace it much. Bear in mind though that this watch is built with the up most quality so it will certainly last the test of time and outlive even this long lasting battery.
The supplied strap is made of resin and as shown in the picture is coloured in a blue that matches the background and the buttons of the watch. As shown the strap has raised parts that match the watch face and actually look quite stylish in my opinion. The strap is secured with a standard stainless steel buckle that fits the holes nicely and doesn't leave the holes stretched after use. With holes being able to fit small wrists like mine up to larger wrists I am sure that you will find it as comfortable and secure as I have.
At such a cheap price you really cannot go wrong with this watch. For my own personal usage I find that it has a whole host of really useful features on it and the watch is very comfortable and not too heavy for your arm. The rugged sporty design will look good for years to come and is even resilient to scratches. Maybe you'll want to try it on before you buy but I am sure you will agree with me when I say that it is an excellent watch, well done Casio.
