A great choice for globetrotters, this stylish Casio analog-digital stainless steel watch for men combines the timeless look of an analog watch with the functionality of a digital watch. The round watch case has a raised bezel that frames the silvery blue dial, which includes a full Arabic numeral display and luminous dagger-style hands. A digital window sits above 6 o'clock displays time from a second time zone, thanks to the integrated world time function with 29 time zones (30 cities). You can also store short notes on the 30-page databank (with 8 letters and 6 numerals per page).
The watch includes a stopwatch that can time events down to 1/100 of a second, and features a 24-hour capacity, split time, and 1st-2nd place times, as well as a countdown timer with a 24-hour capacity. Other timekeeping features include four daily alarms (with one snooze alarm), hourly time signal (which can be turned off), and 12/24-hour formats. This watch also offers a ±30-second accuracy per month, Afterglow backlighting, Auto Calendar (pre-programmed until the year 2039), and water resistance to 165 feet (50 M) -- offering protection from accidental splashes as well suitable for swimming, snorkeling, and light recreational diving. It has a battery life of up to 10 years.
With the launch of its first watch in November 1974, Casio entered the wristwatch market at a time when the watch industry had just discovered digital technology. As a company with cutting-edge electronic technology developed for pocket calculators, Casio entered this field confident that it could develop timepieces that would lead the market.
Today, Casio is focusing its efforts on solar-powered radio-controlled watches: the built-in solar battery eliminates the nuisance of replacing batteries, atomic timekeeping means the users never have to reset the time. Recently, Casio launched a series of Bluetooth watches that sync to the users cell phone to automatically update the time. Casio is always moving time forward.

The LCD portion of the watch is very easy to read.
The watch seems accurate so far.
The analog portion of the watch is controlled by the digital, so it should stay as accurate as the digital portion. (The minute hand clicks 1/3 of a minute every 20 seconds.)
The digital portion of the watch has so many features that it is difficult to use. Do I really need three alarms? The watch can store 30 phone numbers in it. Ten years ago that could have been useful, but now I store all my numbers in my cell phone. To make use of all these features, I'd need to carry around the instruction manual (which is 100 pages long, if you include the English, Spanish, and warrantee--although the pages are small).
The watch has no second hand. Sometimes I like to use one to time short things. Yes, there is a built in stop watch, but it is as hard to use as all the other digital features. (But my guess is the lack of a second hand will extend battery life.)
The band grabbed the hair on my arm. I had to go out and buy a twist-o-flex.
There is no stem to set the analog portion of the watch. Instead, you go into handsetting mode in the digital portion, and push a button and wait for the hands to move forward to the correct time. To set the hands forward 11 hours to go off of DST took several minutes.
The watch has a DST setting. It sets the digital portion of the watch ahead an hour. But it doesn't automatically go back after DST ends. So you still need to adjust the watch. It's not much easier than just resetting the time.Read more ›
No seconds hand. And one cannot use the digital display to show seconds 'and' date simultaneously.
Adjusting analog time is quite uncomfortable. Since, the dial does not turn anti-clockwise; even if you are off by a few minutes while setting time, you have to go through 12h of adjusting.
--changing the time (both analog and digital) is so unintuitive that I either copied the pages from the manual when I traveled or I waited until I got to an internet cafe to take a look at the manual online. Not a deal breaker for me, I knew this issue when I bought my second watch.
--the back of the case is plastic, and it easily fractures when any stress is applied from the strap spring. This is a major design problem, and both of my watches broke in the same place. Once this happens, the watch is a goner. Of course, a metal back would have prevented this issue and anyone could expect that a major watch manufacturer who bills a watch as a sports model would build a watch so that the spring breaks, not the watch itself.
The first time this happened, I chalked it up to bad luck and ponied up the small change for another watch. The second time it happened, with a watch less than 6 months old, I fumed and sent it back for warranty repair. I just got the repair estimate today, and it is more dollars than a new watch, when the whole deal should have been free.
Looks like a sports watch, is advertised as a sports watch, but don't believe it!
Slightly longer version: don't buy any Casio if you ever want to replace the battery yourself.
Long version: When I bought this watch, I was happy with it's appearance and function. However, after 1 week the watch died. I bought a new battery, replaced it, and it still didn't work. So, I called Casio support ([...] The woman asked me who replaced the battery. I told her I did. She informed me (very honestly) that since I replaced the battery myself, that it voids the warranty. However, I can try sending it in for repair, and just not tell them I replaced the battery. According to her, "nobody can change the battery except for Casio, not even a jeweler." Then, after I send it back in, they would write me back a quote. If I decided not to take the quote, it would still cost me $10 to ship the non-functioning watch back to me. Add in the $3-$4 to ship it to them in the first place, and it would cost me bare minimum a $3-$4 "disposal fee." Forget that. I'll just throw this $21.00 watch away.
