The rugged and sporty Casio G-Shock digital watch features atomic timekeeping via radio signal for extreme accuracy, enhanced shock resistance, and water resistance up to 660 feet (200 meters). This solar powered watched comes with a power saving function and offers a battery life of 11 months on full charge without further exposure to light. The stylish gold-toned digital display comes with an automatic electro-luminescent backlight with afterglow, and three circular digital displays at the top provide additional information such as mode, timing, and battery level. The world time can be set for up to 29 different time zones (30 cities), with optional daylight savings and a city code display. The automatic calendar shows the month, date, and day below the time and is pre-programmed through 2099. This convenient, world-savvy watch also comes with a 1/100 second stopwatch, four daily alarms and one snooze alarm, a time recorder, and hourly time signals. Designed for durability, the watch is built with a stainless steel bezel and a mineral dial window. The dark gray case and band are made of resin and further the watch's ruggedly casual look. This watch is backed by a 1-year limited manufacturer's warranty.
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.
It may have other functions, but since I don't use the watch for alarms or stopwatch, etc., I wouldn't know.
This watch looks somewhat more sophisticated, though I'd NEVER wear it with a shirt and tie (that's what all my other watches are for!).
To let you know how well it worked, consider this: The "Atomic Clock" signal originates in Colorado, northwest of my location.
