I love it!
on April 7, 2011
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.
