nice watch, but the straps always break sooner or later,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Casio Women's LA11WB-1 Sport Watch (Watch)
Right now, I have two of these watches, each with a strap that's about to break just above the buckle. Good for small wrists, easy to reset when traveling. Replacing a battery requires a trip to the watch repairman's shop (and costs not much less than a new watch).

You can replace the band with a better one. I've been doing this for years. :)

And I just end up giving the watch to a charity when it's time to replace the battery - and I buy another. It is not worth the 25 mile drive (maybe a 40 mile drive) to a watch repairman, plus the cost of the battery and his time. It's a shame, but Walmart no longer replaces the battery on the watches they well and I tried opening the case and stabbed myself with the tool while I scratched the back of the case. So I just buy new.

What do you expect the charity to do with the watch?! If it's not worth it to you to replace the battery or repair it, it's probably not worth it to the charity, either. I'm always amazed at the things people "donate." I wonder how much you claimed on your tax deduction....
