Advantages: easy to use, lightweight, fashionable, durable
Disadvantages: no snooze on alarm, not to everyone's taste
As a man in my mid 20's its inevitable that I'm a fan of most things retro. Casio watches are high up on my list! For me they symbolise the start of digital watches and all of my friends had one when I was a youngster.
In my collection now I have 4 casio watches, 3 of them are of the type described here but in a variety of colours (grey, orange and blue). These watches are fantastic.
The main function of these watches is to tell time, with a bright display which is easily read even in the brightest sunlight the time can be easily read by anyone with at least 1 eye. The date and day is also displayed on the clock face and these are also easily interpreted. There are also other functions, an alarm and a stopwatch. The alarm doesn't have snooze functionality, probably the only downside to this product. Nevertheless it is loud and does a good job of waking you up. The stopwatch is easy to use.
Adjusting the time/date is something which any user of a casio watch will remember. It is simple to do but if you struggle the manual that comes with the watch details all the available uses in detailed steps.
The watch has a rubber strap and this is very durable. Also, I did at one point get a stain on my grey watch, this was easily removed with a bit of generic cleaner and some elbow grease. The watch is also very lightweight and sometimes you can forget you are wearing it.
The price of the watch varies from around £20 to £45 for a gold or silver version. I didn't find this to be extortionate for a watch that can be worn every day!
These watches are superb, a great throwback to the 80's and 90's and with the array of colours you can match every outfit with a different watch! Plus they always grab someone's attention.
Summary: Great product, affordable and stylish!
