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 atomic system and solar power are really convenient as other reviewers describe them, and you don't have to do anything to keep this watch working accurately. I just grab it and put it on my wrist in the morning! Even though it's casual, it can be worn for work as well as recreation. Of course, this is G-Shock, so you don't have to worry about doing damage to it at all, while washing your hands, taking a nap, and even playing sports in the rain!
Personally, I like analog watches better than digital ones because you can quickly see the time in stead of having to picture the clock face in your head. But it's convenient to have digital display, too, to view the exact minutes and seconds. This watch is basically analog, but has digital display, as well, so you can enjoy the best of both worlds! Just a note, this watch doesn't have second hand (but you can see seconds on the digital display), and the minute hand moves every twenty seconds. It's kinda fun to watch.
The only change that I would make is to have the whole face illuminated, including digital display. The LED light only lights up the analog portion of the watch from the bottom of the watch face, and you cannot see the digital display in the dark (You can see the analog portion clearly without any trouble). So you shouldn't expect to set the alarm in the dark.
But over all, I'm quite satisfied with this watch and would recommend it to anyone looking for a tough, reliable, and good looking timepiece.

I gave this product a 4-star rating because of some of the downsides of this watch. The light does not allow reading the digital displays, and the round digital displays are small when looking at the date, the secondary time (from another city), the timer and the stopwatch (imagine 4 digits cramped in the left-hand round digital display). It is fine when the display on the left shows the day of the week (first three letters show). The display on the right always shows the seconds (or 1/100 second with the stopwatch) with big enough numbers. I would have gladly given this watch 5 stars if it had not been for these little inconveniences. Since I wear my watch very casually, not for sports, I try to look for reasonably-priced watches with character and unusual features. This one is perfect and elegant in all social situations, as well as FULLY customizable: date, time (12 or 24H) or day in the left-hand round display,(alarm on/off), hourly chime ON/OFF, atomic auto-setting of the watch ON/OFF, Power saving function ON/OFF, even the beep made when you press the Mode button can be turned off. A great timepiece.
