Nice, but... >>>UPDATE<<<,
This review is from: Casio Men's WVA470J-1ACF Waveceptor Solar Atomic Ana-Digi Sport Watch (Watch)
Okay, I JUST received this watch yesterday. So, maybe things will change. First off, I love Casio watches. Good, and sometimes very cheap. Fun to buy and fun to wear and very accurate. This watch is beautiful. Nice domed crystal and attractive face. Precise hand movements and the hands are good quality compared to cheaper Casios. I love the band. It feels nicer and higher quality than cheaper Casios. One really nice aspect is that the end of the band (not the buckle end) has a little bulbous thickening at the end so it kind of snaps through the band loop and it retained. Nice quality touch.
(See Update below) Now, my only complaint so far, the radio seems weaker than my other atomic solar (G-Shock MT-G). The MT-G sets itself without fail even if I am wearing it at night and it is under my pillow in my bedroom - through 3 thick old-school plaster walls in a brick house in eastern Ohio. Strong.... This one seems less sensitive. I tried several times to synch it last night with errors each time - side by side my MT-G synched with no problem. Auto-synch over night failed too. This morning I got it to do a manual synch right around dawn. Since these quartz movements are so accurate, syncing every few days should keep it within a second or two. But that is NOT why you buy a waveceptor. You buy this watch to geek out on perfect time and reliable syncing. Maybe it will be better on a clear night, last night had a lot of clouds.
Overall, very nice watch. Very attractive and higher quality as expected from price compared to the $20 Casios. Waveceptor works, but not as sensitive as other models.
>>>>> Update <<<<< : Initial sync problems is resolved. It turns out that the battery was on MID charge. Although it was supposed ot have full function at MID, after charging to HI, sync works every night now. Solid watch.
