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.
It is simple to set the timer for 1, 3, 5, 10, 15, 20 or 30 minutes, or there is an alarm that can be set for any time within 24 hours.
I like knowing I can wear this watch in the shower or watering the yard, or even swimming.
We purchased this for our daughter because of the alarm feature. It was kind of complicated to set up and she now uses her Kindle for reminders, etc.Published 6 days ago by Mama and Papa D.
This watch is simple (just 2 buttons for operation) and has some convenient features. I use the quick timer the most (1, 3, 5, 10, 20, and 30 minute settings). Read more
This is the 5 or so one of these that I have had. I started buying them way back when they were first available in the 80"s. Read morePublished 24 days ago by Suzy
I love this little watch with digital display, alarm and especially the timer (1, 3, 5, 10, 15, 20 or30 minutes) which I use all the time. Read morePublished 29 days ago by C. Clausen
I have bought this Casio watch since the 80's like other reviewer wrote. I wear it day and night. I changed the band to a Speidel band and it is great for work, easy to slip on and... Read morePublished 1 month ago by bargainhunter
My favorite part is the easy and quick to use timer function. I have not used any other watch for years. Disadvantage? Read morePublished 1 month ago by D. Wogaman
This is at least my fourth watch like this over the past 15 years or so. I like it because it is simple and the band is plastic so non-allergenic. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Bernadette F. Rodak
Nothing special about the design or materials of this watch except that it has the best brain-saving device, the Countdown Alarm. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Reds
The face of the watch is very small, difficult to read. But overall, serves its purpose for a very inexpensive, water resistant, feminine sport watch; keeps good time.Published 1 month ago by Tammie A. Kim
