Product Description

The quartz-powered Casio Women's LA670WA-1 Daily Alarm Digital Silver-tone Watch brings a retro edge to your look. It features a digital-gray dial face with a black background, encased in a sturdy mineral dial window. An easy-to-read time-display format and handy perpetual calendar function ensures your time-telling convenience. Both the silver-tone stationary bezel and 25-millimeter case are made of high-quality stainless steel, and the matching stainless steel band is accompanied by a steadfast fold-over-clasp closure. This affordable, precise timepiece is versatile enough for everyday wear.

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 only functions are time, date, stopwatch, and my favorite function, a minute countdown timer.

    I like the metal stretch band because I think it looks better, but Casio makes the same watch with a black plastic band which is OK.

    I am very pleased that Casio picked up the Timex watch design--I bought my first one back in the 1980s and it lasted 15 years.

    This watch is not only the best watch I have ever owned, it is the only day time watch that I ever use. I love the 1,3,5,10,20, 30 minute timer found ONLY on this watch. I love it so much that I buy several and change out the band to match different outfits! I do wish that this watch came in a more dressy version. I also hope that Casio continues to make this watch for people who need a timer and a dependable alarm!

    This watch is available under the heading: Casio Women's Digital Watch #LA670WA-1 Ladies' dress watch, under which there more more reviews, and I already added mine there.

    To reitereate, this is a very smart & sweet looking watch, and also is all metal and digital, which are both rare at this size. However, the negative aspects are: no light, no date, and the clasp comes apart very easily. The description gives the erroneous impression the strap is the expansion type, but in fact it is a metal strap with a clasp that can slide up & down one arm, to a length that fits you.

    I can see why one of the previous reviewers lost her watch: it is very easy not to snap the clasp closed properly. It came apart on me more than once and, the watch being so light, it is quite easy not to notice it has gone!

    I like the watch but am very disappointed with the strap. I did consider getting a genuine expansion one which was what I had been looking for, but this turned out to cost more the the watch itself! If, like me, you are looking for a watch with an expansion type strap, Timex does them much better but unfortunately, and disappointingly, does not do them in digital form....

    This is the "dressy" version of Casio LA11WB-1 there are more reviews for it since many of us have owned this earlier version for 15+ years.

    The pros:

    The countdown timer - this is why we love this watch. You push a single button once and a timer is set for 1 minute, each time you press the button, the time increases 1, 3, 5, 10, 15, 20, 30 then reset. It's not too terribly loud. I have used this since my kids were babes, through time-outs, and we have X minutes until we leave. I've never had this feature go out on the watch so the button and electronics must be pretty good.

    The price - I can afford to keep a backup on hand

    The band - I have actually preferred the metal band and haven't had any trouble with it. I have a very small wrist so it may make a difference having the extra wrap portion underneath. The plastic band on the LA11WB-1 tends to break on me fairly quickly. I do have the LA11WB-1 as my backup in my jewelry box - just in case.

    Overall - This watch is a little prettier than the plastic band. It still is a little "geeky" but more appropriate for business attire.

    The cons:

    No light - Not a good watch for dark areas.

    As I get older, the little bars across the top that indicate time remaining get harder and harder to see.

    This is not a watch to pass down to your grandchildren. The other model typically lasts about 1/2 - 2 years. I would assume this watch will be comparable but we'll see after they've been out a couple of years. When the battery goes out, I've had about a 50% success rate of having a replacement battery work. The batteries are a pain to get to, it's hard to find a place that is familiar with this watch, that has the battery, and will replace it. Any other problems that might arise cost far more than the replacement cost.

    Recommendation: Buy 2 - one of each style so you'll have a backup.

    For 15 years the CASIO LA-670WA-1 "Countdown" Ladies Dress Watch has been my teaching watch. I use the countdown timer and stopwatch functions every day to keep my class reasonably on time, to serve admirably in math and science classes, and to time games and quizzes. Add to that its amazing usefulness as a cooking/laundry timer and alarm clock and this watch is my ever-constant, dependable companion. Excellent quality and value.

    I am like many of you that can't live without the countdown timer on this wonderful watch, but wish the watch were a little less geeky. I literally spent hours searching the world over (through the Internet) for a prettier watch that has the same timer feature. I have finely found it! It is also made by Casio, but for some odd reason they market it to Asia only. I did find a website that sells them to America. The watch is much prettier, with a round face, an analog dial (with the hands and all), and best of all a digital part that does the stopwatch and date. The essential and extremely rare countdown timer appears to be in a circle around the face of the watch and goes up to 60 minutes instead of just 30!! Anyway, thought some of you would want to know!

    I like the watch itself, but the clasp isn't so great. My husband, who has two black belts in karate (the kind where you break boards and such), had to wrestle around mightily to get the clasp to close for me. I would definitely have paid a few dollars more to have a better clasp--as it is, I like the watch enough that maybe I'll get it reset....

    This has many great features, and two poor ones. To start with the poor ones (Casio are you listening??), the face is extremely plain, and the strap is dreck.

    Nonetheless, this is the Little Watch that could, and I depend upon it every day of my life for its best feature, a countdown timer that you can set with only 1 click. You don't have to search through various functions. It's right there on the face. With one click it rings after 3 minutes, 2 clicks gets you 5 minutes, 3 clicks for 10 minutes and so on up to 30 minutes. This function is a timer, an alarm and a reminder all in one.

    To function as a mother with kids and multiple other responsibilities, when much is going on at once, I can just click twice for 10 minutes so that I will be reminded of what I was thinking about when things calm down. Or, I can remind myself to get back to the stove in 20 minutes as I walk away to take the phone call. If I am supposed to leave for the doctor in 30 minutes, but I know that there will be multiple distractions I can click away and know that I will be reminded to go while there is still time. If I do meditation I set it for 20 minutes. If the children get a time out I set it for 3 minutes so I can turn away and do something else. The needs are endless.

    And I get older, my memory is only going to get worse, so while things will calm down, my need for reminders will only increase.

    It's a great watch. There is no reason why it can't be an elegant watch too. Digital watches do not have to look clunky. Right, Casio?

    Hope this review helps,

    Barbara
