This review is from: Casio Men's G100-1BV "G-Shock" Watch in Black Resin (Watch)
I have two other watches. A stainless steel Bulova and a leather strapped Movado Bold. Both tend to be more luxury, special occasion wear rather than casual, everyday wear although I am getting the Movado out more often. So, I was in the market for a functional, comfortable, durable, casual and good looking watch I could wear everyday. This Casio G-Shock fits the bill.
Out of my three watches, the G-Shock is the best in terms of comfort and fit. It's not heavy on your wrist, and the fit is just right where the watch is not too tight and not too loose. For me, that is having the watch strap at 6 notches. The plastic resin material that most of the watch is made of is smooth and very flexible so the watch can adjust to your movements.
I really like the blend of analog and digital on the display. It's a nice look, and the digital display also serves other purposes in fulfilling the alarm, stopwatch, and date functions as well as time. The analog hands are synchronized with the digital numbers so when it's 4:15 on the digital display, the hands will also show 4:15
In terms of functionality, everything works, but you will probably have to look at the instruction manual at least once to figure it out. After that, using the functions of the watch is easy.
I don't worry about the watch in terms of durability because it is G-Shock. Water resistant to 200 meters and obviously built to withstand shocks to the casing of the watch.
The overall size of the watch and its face are small, and this is good for me because I do prefer small and medium watches rather than large ones. A small con is that at times, the analog hands will partly block the digital display. But I don't see this as a big deal because you can still tell what the time is.
I would recommend this watch!
