Great new GA100!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: G-Shock GA100CF-8A Special Color Models Luxury Watch - Grey/Camouflage / One Size (Watch)
This is a great new addition for the Casio G Shock GA100 series. I am a fan of positive displays--not usually negative ones. Up until now, one of the most popular GA100s had a positive display--but the hour hand was red--which was difficult to see at times. This new execution has a positive LCD display and both watch hands are painted white--making this watch much easier to read at all times--although it would be nice if Casio would put a bit more lume on the hour/minute hands. The other functions have not changed. The band is a dark grey and the watch face has grey "camo" on it--but it is rather dark and not that noticeable--fine with me. The light does an adequate job but the LCD displays--at night in a dark room--are not the easiest to read--but a little better than in the past. The LCD displays are pretty easy to read at other times except when the hands are in their area--not an uncommon problem with these kind of watches. The watch is not solar powered nor has it atomic sync--might be nice if it did because I do like those features but I can live without them. I don't use the time signal and the watch does not have the standard "beeps" to turn off--hopefully the battery will last quite a while. Overall, a really nice new addition to the G Shock line.
