This review is from: Casio Men's WVA470J-1ACF Waveceptor Solar Atomic Ana-Digi Sport Watch (Watch)
I have been looking for a long time for a replacement watch for my trusty, rugged 10-year-old G-Shock Digital. It still keeps time but it's really beat up. And since I often stay at hotels or nap in my car, I have been feeling the need for a new watch with a dependable alarm feature...preferably one with a snooze. So after much research, I ordered the WaveCepSolar. With its handsome, elegant quality and the sweep second hand, it's a real beauty! And not having to set/change time or batteries is simply the bomb! But its alarm function turned out to be a real joke! Very disappointing. When the alarm sounds, there's a tiny, barely audible tone (very faint and muted which lasts for only ten seconds then shuts off automatically) which wouldn't wake the lightest sleeper. I seriously doubt a dog more than 10 feet away could hear it. If expecting the alarm to remind me of an important meeting or objective while in a noisy work environment, forget it. I couldn't even hear it go off. I returned the watch for refund and am still looking for a replacement for my trusty, rugged ole G-Shock.
