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.

    I have had two Casio wave cepter watches and this one is the better. You never have to set this watch, solar powered, which lasts months without any sunlight, and water proof. Looks great also! The only small downfall for this watch is it's crystal......it does seem to scratch a little easy. The crystal is glass, some other casio's have plexi-glass crystal which scrathes very easy. The best is the saphire crystal, which as of now only comes with the Casio Oceanus line of watches. (terrific line of watches)

    Casio Men's Waveceptor Solar Atomic Ana-Digi Sport Watch #WVA470J-1ACF

    Love the watch-now. Because the manual is often not clear, it took quite a while to set up. AMAZON was no help. Whey I contact them to get Casio's Tech number the only number they had was for a distributor. Casio's website allows you to send e-mails with a standard response- download the manual. BUT after quite a bit of digging I found the number- write this down- Casio Tech Support: 1-800-435-7732, choose Option 3.
    The response is prompt and the tech support staff is courteous and helpful.

    I purchased this watch in April. At first, I loved my purchase. The watch works exactly as expected. I never had to set it and the time has always been correct. It has a lot of style and functionality. However, in early August, while washing my hands, the watch broke across the plastic between the face and the band. I sent it to Casio for repairs fully expecting it to be covered. After several phone calls and a few repair estimates, I was told that it would cost 3/4 of the price of the watch to repair because the damage is a "band" issue and not covered under the warrantee. One representative stated that the band likely broke because I tightened it too much which a physical impossibility as the area that broke is not mobile. I have bought several Casio watches before this and have been happy up until now. For the watch to brake in the way it did within a few months of purchase, it is either a design flaw in the watch or a defective watch. I was very surprised when Casio not only did not cover the repair but was going to charge such a large amount to fix it. I fear that the quality of Casio watches is declining and I'm certainly not going to purchase from them again. In fact, I would advise others against buying this product as well.

    The watch has a very sensitive receiver that sets the time every night without having to put the watch by a window as the instructions indicate. The solar cell charges the battery with normal daily activity. The date and day of week panel is very legible.
    The only negative is how easily the crystal scratches. I don't even know what scratched it but it had a couple of scratches in a few days.

    Okay, I JUST received this watch yesterday. So, maybe things will change. First off, I love Casio watches. Good, and sometimes very cheap. Fun to buy and fun to wear and very accurate. This watch is beautiful. Nice domed crystal and attractive face. Precise hand movements and the hands are good quality compared to cheaper Casios. I love the band. It feels nicer and higher quality than cheaper Casios. One really nice aspect is that the end of the band (not the buckle end) has a little bulbous thickening at the end so it kind of snaps through the band loop and it retained. Nice quality touch.

    (See Update below) Now, my only complaint so far, the radio seems weaker than my other atomic solar (G-Shock MT-G). The MT-G sets itself without fail even if I am wearing it at night and it is under my pillow in my bedroom - through 3 thick old-school plaster walls in a brick house in eastern Ohio. Strong.... This one seems less sensitive. I tried several times to synch it last night with errors each time - side by side my MT-G synched with no problem. Auto-synch over night failed too. This morning I got it to do a manual synch right around dawn. Since these quartz movements are so accurate, syncing every few days should keep it within a second or two. But that is NOT why you buy a waveceptor. You buy this watch to geek out on perfect time and reliable syncing. Maybe it will be better on a clear night, last night had a lot of clouds.

    Overall, very nice watch. Very attractive and higher quality as expected from price compared to the $20 Casios. Waveceptor works, but not as sensitive as other models.

    >>>>> Update <<<<< : Initial sync problems is resolved. It turns out that the battery was on MID charge. Although it was supposed ot have full function at MID, after charging to HI, sync works every night now. Solid watch.

    I have been looking for a long time for a replacement watch for my trusty, rugged 10-year-old G-Shock Digital. It still keeps time but it's really beat up. And since I often stay at hotels or nap in my car, I have been feeling the need for a new watch with a dependable alarm feature...preferably one with a snooze. So after much research, I ordered the WaveCepSolar. With its handsome, elegant quality and the sweep second hand, it's a real beauty! And not having to set/change time or batteries is simply the bomb! But its alarm function turned out to be a real joke! Very disappointing. When the alarm sounds, there's a tiny, barely audible tone (very faint and muted which lasts for only ten seconds then shuts off automatically) which wouldn't wake the lightest sleeper. I seriously doubt a dog more than 10 feet away could hear it. If expecting the alarm to remind me of an important meeting or objective while in a noisy work environment, forget it. I couldn't even hear it go off. I returned the watch for refund and am still looking for a replacement for my trusty, rugged ole G-Shock.
