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.

I only now am finally moving on to the DBC310-1 - not because I want to, but because the plastic casing on the DBC30-1 finally cracked, and I can't connect the band to the watch anymore. The ironic thing is that the watch itself still works perfectly. I imagine it probably will work for longer then I'm alive.
An excellent watch. I'll never get anything but Casio.
I'm less than pleased. I don't need the phone number capability (now that I have a cell phone) but do use the scheduled alarms by date. I could schedule alarms on my cell phone, but it's not always on me (no pockets-I'm female). The old one could schedule 150 total items (phone numbers or scheduled alarms). This one only has 30 phone numbers and they are totally separate from the alarms, of which there are ONLY 5!! What a pain. The are also not as easy to set, needing multiple buttons ('mode' to set which alarm, and 'adjust' to start the setting), and holding down the adjust button (not just pressing it as the instructions say) until the numbers flash. I found this to be several seconds.
It also has no timer, just a stopwatch, and I use the timer function a lot as well, rather than carry a kitchen timer around in my non-existent pockets. Why did Casio have to 'fix' something that wasn't broken. I'd have gladly paid more to have the old features.
I'm very tempted to return this one and stay with my old one until it completely gives up, or use my husband's seldom used one but it doesn't have a light. If I can find one on Ebay, this one is going back.
I owned many in the databank series over the years.
For the most part they are all great functionally.
Even with regular use either the (black plastic) bands break or the pin receiver portion of the watch breaks (the area where the band's pin seats itself).
[I take the watch off for showering every day, and it really irks me to have a band start cracking about the 11 month mark].
For the most part, I get about 12 to 18 months use out of a casio, before something breaks. (and it is almost as much to fix as it would be to buy a new watch.
Last year I had one of these and when the band started breaking/cracking, I repaired it with a "plastic repair" kit from Urethane supply company.
The area where the band broke would remain in good shape, but a new crack would start. After 4 plastic repairs, I gave up.
I replaced my databank with a metal waveceptor. Or I thought it was metal. Most of the watch body was simply plastic plated with chrome.
