This Casio G-Shock watch is a highly accurate and durable digital timepiece perfect for travelers, adventurers, or anyone looking for a multi-function, rough-and-ready watch. Featuring atomic timekeeping, the watch automatically sets using radio signals to ensure perfect time accuracy. Charged by solar power, the battery can last up to eight months on a full charge without further exposure to light. The screen indicates the battery level, and the watch comes with a power saving function. Ideal for world travelers or international calls, the watch can be set for 29 time zones (30 cities), with or without daylight savings, and comes with a city code display so you know where you are. The watch also features four daily alarms and one snooze alarm, a countdown timer, a 1/100 second stopwatch, hourly time signals, and an automatic calendar pre-programmed through 2099. The octagonal bezel of dark gray resin gives the watch a distinctive look, and the octagonal digital display window offers an automatic EL backlight with afterglow for easy night reading. The rugged band and case are also made of resin. The watch is designed for enhanced shock resistance, is water resistant up to 660 feet (200 meters).
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 DW5600 is a great watch, but I think this one is the better buy.
The G-Shock Atomic Tough Solar GW5600J-1 is probably one of the best purchases I've ever made; or at least, one that has made me happy the most.
The atomic and touch solar features are nice too, the watch syncs almost every night so I always have an accurate watch all the time.
This watch is simple but very well made. Has all the features I need in a watch and is not overly big like other G-shocks.Published 1 month ago by huntsman12
Great watch. Finally a watch that always has the exact correct time and it never needs a battery.Published 7 months ago by Thomas Jackson
Works well, but I had actually specified in my search an atomic solar watch, key word being atomic. I didn't realize until it arrived that it was not atomic, only solar. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Nancy J. Lowe
This is excellent watch. I do not spend a lot of time outside, so I was worried about the solar charging. But it has remained at full charge the entire time I've had it. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Grumpyoldman
I bought one of these for my girlfriend as the perfect travel watch. Looks very close to DW5600 but is more square than rectangle and slightly thicker. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Joey
Great watch. The daily synchronization means it always gives you the very precise time, down to the second, which is what you need a watch for right? Read morePublished 9 months ago by LMel
