Product Description

Presenting innovation that fits in the palm of your hand, the digital-quartz powered Casio Travel Clock Auto Calendar Thermometer Clock #PQ15-1KP features a digital-blue dial face, which is embellished with an easy-to-read time display. Other innovative features include a handy day-and-date calendar, a temperature reading, and an alarm setting, while a stationary plastic bezel promotes day-to-day durability. Designed to accommodate your busy schedule, this handsome timepiece offers a sleek functionality.

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.

In developing its own wristwatches Casio began with the basic question, ""What is a wristwatch?"" Rather than simply making a digital version of the conventional mechanical watch, we thought that the ideal wristwatch should be something that shows all facets of time in a consistent way. Based on this, Casio was able to create a watch that displayed the precise time including the second, minute, hour, day, and month — not to mention a.m. or p.m., and the day of the week. It was the first watch in the world with a digital automatic calendar function that eliminated the need to reset the calendar due the variation in month length. Rather than using a conventional watch face and hands, a digital liquid crystal display was adopted to better show all the information. This culminated in the 1974 launch of the CASIOTRON, the world’s first digital watch with automatic calendar. The CASIOTRON won acclaim as a groundbreaking product that represented a complete departure from the conventional wristwatch.

Casio transformed the concept of the watch — from a mere timepiece to an information device for the wrist — and undertook product planning based on this innovative idea. We developed not only time functions such as global time zone watches, but also other radical new functions using Casio’s own digital technology, including calculator and dictionary functions, as well as a phonebook feature based on memory technology, and even a thermometer function using a built-in sensor. The memory-function watches became our DATA BANK product series, while the sensor watches developed into two unique Casio product lines of today: the Pathfinder series displaying altitude, atmospheric pressure, and compass readings.

In 1983, Casio launched the shock-resistant G-SHOCK watch. This product shattered the notion that a watch is a fragile piece of jewelry that needs to be handled with care, and was the result of Casio engineers taking on the challenge of creating the world’s toughest watch. Using a triple-protection design for the parts, module, and case, the G-SHOCK offered a radical new type of watch that was unaffected by strong impacts or shaking. Its practicality was immediately recognized, and its unique look, which embodied its functionality, became wildly popular, resulting in explosive sales in the early 1990s. The G-SHOCK soon adopted various new sensors, solar-powered radio-controlled technology (described below), and new materials for even better durability. By always employing the latest technology, and continuing to transcend conventional thinking about the watch, the G-SHOCK brand has become Casio’s flagship timepiece product.

Today, Casio is focusing its efforts on solar-powered radio-controlled watches: the built-in solar battery eliminates the nuisance of replacing batteries, and the radio-controlled function means users never have to reset the time. In particular, the radio-controlled function represents a revolution in time-keeping technology similar to the impact created when mechanical watches gave way to quartz technology. Through the further development of high radio-wave sensitivity, miniaturization, and improved energy efficiency, Casio continues to produce a whole range of radio-controlled models.

    The night light is so dim you really cant see it in a dark room.

    Best part of this travel clock is the temperature, the small size, and yet it's so easy to use.
    Mary E. Van Aacken
    To see what time the alarm is set for, you have to slide the appropriate tiny little button.

    I've had one of these for at least ten years, and it's still going strong. I think I've only changed the batteries 3 times, and I use it as my primary alarm clock almost every day. It has traveled with me to at least 3 continents and been through countless airports, train stations, bus stations, docks, suitcases, hotel rooms, and campgrounds, and still sits by my bed every night. The only problems I've had with it are when I've forgotten to set it. I'm tempted to buy another one only because I'm afraid they'll quit making it; I want to be able to replace it when it finally gets crushed or stepped on or lost in transit.

    On a more objective level, it has a well laid out display, showing the time, date, day, temperature, and alarm/snooze indicators. The time can swith to 24-hour format, and the temperature can display either in F or C. The snooze button is big enough to hit with my eyes closed. The snooze button also turns on the greenish backlight for 5 seconds or so, letting me see what time it is in the dark. The base flips around and protects the buttons from getting pressed while it's in my bag, which is important as I usually just toss it in with my keys and flashlight and mp3 player and other things with hard pointy bits.

    My only real complaint is that the snooze function only waits 5 minutes, I'd prefer about 10. Still, when you're travelling, who wants to sleep in all day? There are things to do! This is small enough to take anywhere no matter how I'm traveling. This is easily the best travel alarm clock I've ever had.

    I've owned this clock for several years - it's dependable, durable and reliable. I find it great to have the temperature readout, in both Fahrenheit and Celcius (that way I can whine bi-lingually when it's hot..). I've travelled with it, camped with it, and use it as my everyday bedside alarm. My only complaint is that the snooze button is set for only 5 minutes per "snooze" - hardly enough.

    I've owned a CASIO PQ-10 Travel Alarm Clock for about ten years, traveled with it thousands of miles in my bicycle panniers, and it's still running on the original batteries! The alarm switch finally failed, and I really loved this clock, so I decided to try the PQ-15 as a replacement since the PQ-10 is no longer available. I'm dissapointed - the PQ-15 is more than twice the size and weight (4" tall compared with the PQ-10's 1-3/4" height, uses 2 AAA batteries instead of 2 small watch batteries) and bulges in the back for the battery holder.) With a much larger snooze/LED button, although slightly recessed, its size makes it all too easy to activate the LED display and use up the batteries during travel. I'll keep the PQ-15 for some travel, but I think CASIO took a basic, simple, clean design and went too far. In fairness, the PQ-15 control butons are better spaced and easier to use than the PQ-10, but I wish they would have upgraded the PQ-10 and kept the same form factor.

    This clock is compact, easy to read, portable, and inexpensive. There seems to be a defect with the thermometer function, however, at least in the one we bought. It was fine for the first couple of days, but on the third day or so it registered the temperature in our house at over 90 degrees farenheit (about 30 degrees higher than the actual level). Probably not worth sending it back for, but disappointing nonetheless.

    I really love this clock, but didn't realize how perfect it was until I tried to find a similar one for my husband at local stores. I bought it almost 10 years ago. I use it bedside (really great when the power goes off!), but take it when I travel, and so I've bought a couple of other similar ones for my husband. But my husband's beeps as you set it - not great when your wife is asleep. His snooze button is very close to the set button, so when you go to hit snooze in the dark, it can take a few tries to get it right. Another one had confusing controls that made you wake to waves or birds - not loud enough for him, and so annoying to set that he ripped it apart one night in frustration. But the Casio has a nice wide snooze that also turns on the light - great for sleepy fumbling. The temperature is great, esp. when traveling. It's really the perfect clock.

    I'm a gadget guru. I love gadgets, and when I find something different and unique I'm really happy. So I'm not really happy with this clock. It's MY fault. I didn't take the time to research it's features and I was overwhelmed by the cheap price.

    YEAH, it does all the usual stuff, time, date, temp, but what it's missing is the ALARM TIME ON THE FRONT LCD DISPLAY. It also suffers from the the tiny function switch that's very hard to move and the TIME and ALARM settings are reversed. What do set the most? Set the Alarm, well, it's the second click on the sliding function switch. You have to go through TIME SET to get to ALARM SET. Not very ergonomic - in fact not very well designed. Also, the backlight is USELESS. Two little incandescent bulbs try to side light the LCD to NO avail.

    I would recommend you buy the La Crosse Technology WT-2165U Travel Alarm Clock here on Amazon. It's a few $$ more, but it has a built in receiver that sets the time automatically from the U.S. Naval station in Ft. Collins, Arizona. I have many of these so called Atomic Clocks in my house, and I carry a version of this clock for business when I travel. MOST important it allows you to display the Alarm Times on the LCD so you can confirm you have the right time set for your wake up call. If you miss the plane, it won't be the clock's fault. The Time Zone setting makes it easy to change the display time when you move from one time zone to another without having to change the clock's time. Lastly it uses 1X AAA battery which is rated for one-year of operation. The Lacrosse WT-2165U is the clock I should have bought.
