The best watch!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Casio Men's GWM5610-1 G-Shock Solar Watch with Black Band (Watch)
Casio G-Shocks are simply the best watches in our Universe, specially this one! Classic G-Shock look, 20bar water resistant, shock-proof, SOLAR POWERED and RADIO CONTROLLED!
Once you set your home town (which determines the correct frequency on which the signal wil be received!), the watch starts searching for a signal! You might want to do that next to a window and during evening/night time as that is the time of the day when radio transmissions experience the least interferences by industry or traffic - unless you live next door to an transmitter then it doesn't matter.
The watch has all the function you will need sooner or later! 24-hour stop watch, count down timer, 5 alarms and a hourly chime that you can actually hear, auto DST (daylight savings time) feature for areas where the one-hour switch is performed or not, world time to let you know what time it is at your overseas business partner, the EL-backlight is bright and it has an automatic feature where you only have to tilt your arm by 90 degrees and the light come on automatically and that works only in darkness - and if it comes on unintentionally you don't have to worry as the solar cells will keep the battery charged. Oh, there is a power saving feature too where it temporarily shuts off the LCD display over night which is useful when you are living in an cold area of this world, wearing long sleeves which are partially covering the solar cells. Dont worry about eventually running out of juice, the display tells you the charge status!
Important: If you want to understand all the functions and how to use them - take your time and READ THE MANUAL which comes with the watch!
I love solar watches and this is my 3rd Casio Solar watch (my last one was stolen out of my beach bag!); living in southern California with plenty of sunshine, my solar powered watches have never ever failed on me!!!

I agree with most everything you've said about the GW-M5610. My only real gripe about this watch is that despite having 5 alarms, the alarm tone is REALLY SOFT. If you're in a moderately noisy environment, you will NOT hear the alarm. And forget about it waking you up, unless you're a very light sleeper. Just something that all the reviews seem to have overlooked.

This is more of a question. Is the case size a little bigger on the wrist? Please get back to me when you can. Thank You.

It fits my 7-1/4"wrist comfortably and the watch head is not too big (diameter & height)!
