5.0 out of 5 stars Everything I need, December 27, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Casio Men's GW9200-1 G-Shock Riseman Alti-Therm Solar Atomic Watch (Watch)
I need to start off by saying my watch of choice are usually analog. I own a Tissot, a Citizen, a Swiss Army. I wanted a watch that was worry free and accurate. What I needed were:
1. solar recharge
2. atomic syncronizing
3. multi band
4. Able to read weather (this thing actually predicts the weather..cool!)
5. DURABLE

I needed an every day watch and this was perfect. I was really surprised when I took it out of the box and it was completely setup and ready to go. No need to go through lengthy setups with timezones and calanders. Not only that, but I'll NEVER have to do this to this watch. I also should note that it even syncs itself nightly. The manual suggests leaving it on a window facing south. However, Im able to just leave it anywhere in my house and it recieves.

This was also a test to see if a solar capable watch would work for me since I work in a "closed" area in a barely lit computer lab 9 hours a day and I rarely am in the light. So far, its been going like a champ after a month or so of daily use with the auto backlight on. It seems to get all the recharge it needs on the weekends when Im out. So solar test passed.

Im also not fond of big watches, and I was rather concerned this watch would look and feel big. Well, its extremely comfortable. The band is niceley adjustable and the watch is VERY light weight for a watch loaded with so many functions. Its very durable, I've already banged it quite a few times working around the house and on my car but this thing is indestructable. As for size, it is a bit clunky but thats the character of the watch. It in no way looks abnormal on me and I have very small wrists (computer geek here)

You mention that you are in a "closed-area", don't you ever walk outside to get someting to eat or how about going and coming to work? THAT charges your watch.

I have a dozen solar watches and can only wear on at a time so I put them all on my back deck rail on a sunny day now and then. A full day in sunlight last for months. Just remember to get them in the evening or leave them a couple days, LOL
