I am a mom of 4 young kids and so I love digital watch that I can wear every day... and I mean every day, 24hrs a day. I use it to keep time of how long I breastfeed, to remind me to take my meds when I'm on antibiotics, to pick up the kids from school, etc. I've always used Timex. I love all the features it has (multiple alarms, timers, etc). But the band always cracks and breaks before the watch even runs out of battery (about 2 years). So I buy another one because it's not easy to find bands for it. Finally, after my 4th Timex and having the same issue with the band, I gave Casio a try. I love it!

This watch has pretty much the same neat features as the Timex plus it doesn't need battery. From what I read, the band doesn't have issue with cracks (though I can't tell yet since I"ve only had this watch for 4 months). I did have to read the manual because the buttons and set up are not the same as the Timex.

I haven't had issues with the battery loosing charge (I am in TX). In the middle of the night, the watch does go on stand-by where there is no display at all. So I know that if I press the light button, I have to press it twice for the display to come on. Once for it to came on, and the next to turn the light function so I can see what time it is.

The only weird thing is that the buckle on the watch is bubble gum pink. If you look at the face of the watch, it has a maroon, fuchsia color. So I wondered what the heck color coordination that was... but then I noticed that the inside of the face just outside the solar panels has the same bubble gum pink. It's hard to see it so the buckle being pink looks strange. I wish Casio just matched the face color instead.

It works great. I can use the light without it going in to power save mode and the face going blank.
I had read that it stops working well so I waited to write this review. I have had this watch for over three months now and it works great!
It does go into power save mode at night,( when it is in the dim and dark for a few hours.) I wish it could reserve a little more back up power so it could make it through the night.
It is water proof which I love. I have had it under a hose, in the bath, I got it muddy gardening and washed it off in the shower. No condensation build up at all. It really is water proof.
It is the perfect watch if you are active and busy. It holds up wonderfully.

so far i have no complaints about the watch. as a triathlete i use it for swimming, running, and biking and have had no problems with it. i mostly use the timer function when working out. i have also started wearing the watch for work (as a marine biologist) and the watch has handled fine so far in the salt water. i also have very small wrists and it fits much better than all of my other watches. great buy for the price.

Very good product which I am using for swimming several days per week. It counts laps and time but not distance. I wish it could be a little bigger so easier for viewing the numbers through the wet google though the LED light is helpful at the moment. Solar works fine even I don't expose the watch too ofter under the sun lights. Highly recommended.

I have had this watch for a few months now and now prefer it over my Timex watch. I have worn Timex watches for probably around 15 years needed to get a new one due to watch band cracking or needing a new battery. This band seems sturdy, it is stiffer and no battery needed. It took a little getting use to the larger size but I know prefer it! I was worried at first about keeping the watch charged but it always seems to be full! I get lots of compliments on it!

I love this watch. It's so easy to use, has every function I have ever wished for in a watch and looks super cool! No regrets especially as the price was amazing. I've had this watch previously and the only reason i'm replacing it is that I lost it! Great buy, I've been recommending this to all my friends!

I've been on a solar watch kick the last few years, as an owner of 2 Citizen Eco-Drive watches (which are great!). While those watches are for dressier occasions, I needed a casual watch for weekends and/or traveling. Since there are not very many solar Casio watches for women, this one caught my eye because not only is it solar, but it also has World Time and is waterproof to 50 meters - plus all the other extra features (5 alarms, stopwatch, etc.) for under $20. It also has a power save feature that you can choose to turn on or off - at night, it will go into a sleep state when it's in the dark for some time. I travel internationally so the World Time will come in handy. I owned Casio watches as a kid during the 1980s (my digital watch played different songs - it was cool at the time) and was always impressed by the quality of them. I still have that watch and it probably still works if I put a new battery in it. Upon receiving this Solar Runners watch, I was impressed that the quality has not changed. It is plastic, but a thick plastic resin so it doesn't feel flimsy. I have a small wrist and the face is not too big to be distracting. Though the manual is thick, it's really only half of it since the other half is in Spanish. If you've owned a Casio watch before, it should be easy to figure out how to set the clock, etc. Even if you never owned one, it is not rocket science to figure it out. Overall, I'm very happy with it. I'm hoping that the blue one will be available again one day so I can get another one.
