The Casio Digital women's watch is a basic, durable, water-resistant timepiece constructed without unnecessary buttons or frills, making it the perfect accessory for no-nonsense women. The watch includes a resin case, bezel, and matching band, and features a mineral dial window that protects the simple black dial face. The face features a quartz-powered digital time display, as well as a perpetual calendar.
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 watch and battery last many years but, eventually, the watch band breaks.
I use my watch as an alarm clock, a timer, a quick timer (1, 3, 5, 10, 15, 20 and 30 minutes--especially valuable for time out for kids), and, of course, as watch.
Having read the directions, the time is easy to set and the alarm and stop watch are easy to use.
I am a tech person and I couldn't figure this watch out! The buttons were so tiny that my hand cramped trying to hold them to reset the time. Read morePublished 1 day ago by Michael D.

My wife wanted an inexpensive watch she could wear when walking. One with an alarm that would alert her when she reached her daily limit. This watch meets her needs. Read morePublished 5 days ago by Roy L. Stansell Jr.

I love this watch because of the alarm. You can easily set it to ring in 1, 3, 5, 10, 15, 20 or 30 minutes. I use it all the time in the classroom to time my students tasks.Published 5 days ago by C. Castro
I have owned many over the last 20 years. I LOVE the quick timer feature of 1, 3, 5, 10, 20 and 30 minutes.Published 11 days ago by Debbie Schmidt
The picture looks so good. But after all, it is a very inexpensive watch. The band is what really disappointed me. It looks really really cheap. Also, the numbers are quite small. Read morePublished 16 days ago by Contrapunctus
This watch is great if all you need is something that tells the time. I don't use any of the other features, but I trust that they come in handy if needed. Read morePublished 19 days ago by Sophie
Love it! Timer, stopwatch, watch, and waterproof. Very light; I forget I have it on--about a year and it's still perfect.Published 20 days ago by lady90bug
