5.0 out of 5 stars Took me three tries, but finally a new Casio that works for me., September 19, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Casio Men's G7900-1 G-Shock Rescue Digital Sport Watch (Watch)
After umpteen years, I lost my old Casio watch and ordered a new one. Uhmmmm, Casio couldn't leave things alone and juggled features on its watches - and pricing. The first two replacement Casio watches went back because they were lacking features I wanted, like a time that went more than 60 minutes and buttons that I could actually push. (I wish Amazon and Casio would provide more detailed information on features on the respective websites. A feature comparison chart would be a great help.)

This one provides two long-duration stopwatches (which I will make frequent use of), a countdown timer (another must-have for me) and five alarms (which I will rarely use). It has an interesting and minimally useful graphic stopwatch indicator and a tidal chart which is useless in the Midwest. (Lake Michigan, the nearest large body of water to me, has a tidal movement of about one inch.)

It does not have an atomic clock synchronization feature, which I would like, but is reserved for the next pricing level which is more than I want to spend.

The G-Shock watches look huge in the photos and they are bigger than the typical watch. However, despite being large, they are not at all heavy. The band has a pair of "wings" which stabilize the watch on your wrist, a very nice feature.

The face is reasonably uncluttered and the time and date are large and can be easily seen. The light switch is large and on the front, which makes it much more readily accessible than on most of the watches I've owned.

Finally, the buttons for mode adjustment and stopwatches and timers are wonderfully large, which makes using the watch a joy.

Timekeeping accuracy for the week I've had it is excellent.

Altogether, a very nice package and a more than adequate replacement for my lost Casio.
