4.0 out of 5 stars BIG Watch but great Fit, September 5, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Casio Men's GX56-1ACR G-Shock Tough Solar Mud Resistant Digital Sport Watch (Watch)
The obvious....This is a BIG watch. Now, I'm a BIG guy who drives a tractor trailer and I need a rugged watch as well as a big enough watch that doesn't look tiny on me as I'm 6 ft tall and 350.

Ok, so that being said, it's a G-Shock which means it will last forever. These watches will not die.
The buttons are easy to push, even with big fingers.
The display is easy to read. I would have preferred a larger display over the red insert taking up so much space but no biggie.
The band stays in place even though there's no notch to hold it down once buckled.
There's never a need for batteries as it's solar.

A few minor downsides. Mind you, not a big deal but worth mentioning.
1. The red covering on the back of the watch gets water under it and I've got to imagine over Time that will get nasty.
2. The band seems hard to keep clean but then again, I play in muck in my career so..
3. The red accents make a serious, mean looking watch look a little "swatch watch" like. Just an opinion after wearing it. I would opt for the black and grey if given the chance again.

Overall this is a very rugged watch. Solar powered. Will take any beating you can give it and is surprising comfortable given it's massive size.

An Update on this watch.....
I have now had it for several months. A few things to note.
-The Back of this watch gets dirty very quickly. Both the casing and the watch band which have lots of places to collect dirt.
-The Display is hard to see because it's a reverse digital display. Black background with grey numbers.
-Casio did not put anything on the band to keep the band holders in place. In other words the strap flaps around. Nike puts a nub on the band so the strap holder stays in place.
Still like it but only because it's huge and kind of bad a55 looking.
