Product Description

The perfect training partner for your active sporting lifestyle, this Casio G-Shock men's digital sport watch (model GW700A-1V) offers a black resin case that's accented by a silver top ring and light digital gray display as well as a black resin strap. It's also solar-powered and wirelessly receives atomic time updates. It offers a 1/100-second stopwatch with a 60-minute measuring capacity and a time recorder with up to 30 records, It also features four independent daily alarms (with one snooze alarm), world time from 30 cities, and an autocalendar (to the year 2039). And because it's solar-powered--charging in either sunlight or indoor light--you'll never have to deal with changing the battery. Other features include a scratch-resistant mineral crystal, AfterGlow LED electro-luminescent backlight, and water resistance to 200 meters (660 feet)--suitable for recreational scuba diving.

This radio-controlled watch receives a time calibration signal transmitted from Fort Collins, Colorado, and signal reception is possible within a radius of about 2,000 miles from the Fort Collins transmitter. You can choose to automatically receive this signal four times a day, or manually update the watch to the atomic clock.

Casio

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.

This is the best digital watch I have had. The other watches were "water resistant" but I found out that the water resistance went out the window once the seal was broken by replacing the battery which always seemed to be needed sooner than I expected. Since this is a solar watch I do not expect to have to replace the battery (and break the seal) for years. It was charged and at the correct time out of the box. It automatically resets the time every day from a signal in Fort Collins, CO. (No problem in IN) which is supposed to cover all of the USA. It also adjusted automatically to DST. In addition it has 5 alarms which are easy to set so I have used them through the day as reminders. The weak "link" so to speak may be the plastic band. It will likely break before the watch and I'm not sure it can be replaced.

Delighted with this purchase:

1. High degree of functionality (solar-powered atomic watch, day/date/month calendar, times in multiple international cities (good for travel) stop watch, alarms).

2. Easy to set up out of the box.

3. Very helpful knowing that a watch always is accurate (synchronizes with atomic clock daily).

4. The watch/strap are heavy, but much of this is attributable to having a watch that (i)has a radio receiver, and (ii) is solar-powered (solar panel infrastructure + rechargeable battery).

I spent a few hours online researching my next Gshock. The first one ran out of batteries and after window shopping I ended up liking the features of the GW700A-1v the most. I considered the Casio GW500A-1V, but preferred the look of the 700. My reasons behind purchasing and recommending it are:

Bonus of having

Atomic time update

Multi city time zones as well as dual time option (I travel to Europe and have relatives in other countries so this is a personal bonus).

I don't think the watch is really all that heavy. I wanted a workout/summer/go anywhere watch and with the solar power and atomic time updates I really think I'll enjoy it for years to come.

It definitely pays to surf the net and compare pricing too.

I have very specific requirements when I look for a watch. I am a career Army officer and I look for a watch that is rugged, has 12/24 hours clocks, has dual time zones, stop watch, alarm and is very accurate. This Casio answers those requirements. The traditional G-Shock construction is very rugged. The light is easy to use. The GPS synch makes the watch perfectly accurate and the solar power makes battery failure a non-problem. The only minor issue I have had was with the band. The piece that holds the tail down, is a little tight and has to be placed correctly to get the tail through. This is a minor issue and the watch has performed extremely well. The GPS feature does NOT work overseas so the watch will be as accurate as a normal G-Shock during deployment.

After some research (including reading these reviews) I decided to replace my Timex expedition after I had to replace the battery for about the 5th time (OK, I've had it for a while). Wanted solar, the Atomic setting function was a plus, but I wasn't sure how well it would work in northern New England. Got it on Amazon and then 2 weeks later they dropped the price $17 - but they graciously refunded me the difference so I was impressed not only with the watch, but how Amazon handled my transaction - after the fact.

Pro: Solid, well built, accurate - yes, it does sync with the Colorado Springs signal if I leave it in the window as the instructions describe. It came fully charged and I've left it in the sun a few times since and the battery meter hasn't budged. Has more features than I'll use - Haven't thought of a great use of the time recording function yet. Auto backlight is cool and handy if you don't have an extra hand to push the light button.

Con: It is large and a bit heavy, but as one reviewer said, you do get used to it after a couple of days. Wish the backlight would stay on just a bit longer - I know it's to save the battery, but I'd gladly charge it more often to keep the light on an extra second or two.

I have some really expensive watches--Rolex etc. These keep time and look pretty but have little else to offer compared to the G Shock Solar Atomic Watch. This watch does virtually everything on its own. It is easy to use and takes a beating. I swim and snorkel, work out, chop wood, mountain bike etc with it. With my business, I travel the country and it resets itself for each time zone I cross. I also travel world wide and the time zone settings are very helpful. I just purchased this new watch for myself and gave my old one, also the same G Shock, to my neighbor's son who wanted one like mine. I couldn't ask for more. Great watch.

This is a great watch. It keeps perfect time. (I have timed it against WWV on the telephone.) I have no problems with having it receive the Fort Collins, Co., radio signal every night, and I even wear my watch to bed, as the instructions say you are not supposed to do. When you go to bed at night, you are supposed to set it in a window in just the right position, with no metal nearby, to give the watch the best chance of picking up the Fort Collins radio signal. I can see this may be necessary if you are in one of the situations mentioned in the user's guide as being poor for signal reception, e.g., living downtown, or in your car, or in your kitchen, etc.

The solar powered battery has been working perfectly, too. There are three battery level indicators on the watch face: low, medium, and high. When I got the watch, the level was on medium. I imagine it had been in the dark for quite a while. So to charge up the battery, I just set it in a sunlit window on the east side of the house one morning and then set it in a sunlit window on the west side of the house in the afternoon. (I thought I read somewhere in the user's guide you are supposed to do that once a month or so anyway.) It has been on high ever since then.

It also displays the seconds, minutes, hours, day, date, and month, which is very helpful for someone as forgetful as I am. There is no question that the letters and numbers on the watch face are large enough so I can see them without squinting or wearing my cheaters.

It also has a neat backlight that you can turn on by pressing a button or, if you are in the dark, by turning your wrist so the watch face faces you.

The user's guide is small and the printing is small as well, but readable.
