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.

You access the pedometer function through the stopwatch screen. You can set a goal and the watch will beep when you reach it. It has traditional Casio quality and features. It is ideal for travel because you can see 2 time zones and set multiple alarms.
After a month, I can say that I would give this watch 5 stars.
Seems to be geared for running, on page 55 of manual it says that the watch is designed to count steps while you are running. It will not count steps correctly while walking.It seems to work fine for steady walking while your arm is moving. But breaks do "confuse" it a little.
My experience with pedometers is limited. For running though, it works well.
Have used it for a few months now, very accurate. Used it on a 2 mile marked course and it was right on. Figured out how to switch between displays, so previous post was corrected. Overall a pretty good alternative to the GPS and/or foot pod setups.
Casio's experience in digital watch making since the early 1980's gives this watch a fantastic heritage behind it. Pretty much everything is well thought out. But, like any device with a function that needs human input to operate properly, there has to be a manual to understand it. I did not like the enclosed manual, so I downloaded the one available from the Casio website ([...]), which is a little easier to follow. You just enter the module number (3166) to get the right one.
I found the watch pretty accurate on measuring distance traveled. But, you must make sure you capture your stride correctly. The idea is to jog a known measured distance and count your steps along the way. You then divide the distance by your "steps" and you'll get your stride value. This is what you'll input into the watch. So, it's based on your average. If you decide to "run" instead of "jog", your stride may be slightly different and so the measurements will vary. But... in the grand scheme of things, it's a minor variation. However, with walking, your stride is definitely different. You may need to adjust it to get a proper measurement. Also, if you do not swing your arms much, it may not work at all. Ideally for walking, you are best off using a waist mounted pedometer. I haven't tried hooking this one to my waist to see... I'll have to give it a go and report back.
In other respects, this is a terrific watch. The wrist band is very comfortable (soft pliable plastic with silky texture).Read more ›
1. Sturdy construction. Looks more like a G-Shock watch than a normal watch.
2. Size: Though the "case" is 44.2mm X 51.6, the face of the watch (silver ring) is smaller giving the appearance that the watch is not that big. Looks good even on my skinny wrist (7 inches). Sits comfortably on the flat of the wrist too.
3. Band: Does not look flimsy. Looks durable. Silky smooth to touch rubber. Quite pliant. Love the punched out grill like design. Gives it a nice "spidy" web look.
4. Features: Loaded. The usual Casio (world times, multi alarms, stop watch, count down time etc.) . The runners functions are very good if you are a recreational runner who just wants to run around few times a week and keep track of run level stats(Cal, distance, pace, times) and accumulated stats without relying on pre-mapped out gmap routes or GPS etc. Perfect.
5. Accuracy: Pretty good once you set your stride length (33 inches for me) The watch is designed to be worn on left wrist - keep your MP3 player etc to the right when you run so that your step count is not interrupted. It seems walking is accurate as well provided you swing your arms when you walk (no operating your smart phone while walking). However overestimates distance during walking if you don't adjust down the stride length.
6. Looks: I like the few color markings around the dial. Visual 20 sec indicator doubles as a target % indicator if you set target to achieve during your running (time, distance, energy). Easy to read font. Band is nice looking. Does not look ugly if you want to wear as everyday wear to office.
1. Would like alarm feature to set just for week days and not week ends.
2. Would like to turn off the beeping sound during button operation.Read more ›
