My new favorite watch,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Casio Men's G8900A-1CR G-Shock Black and Blue Resin Digital Sport Watch (Watch)
I noticed the reviews were mixed on this watch when I was considering buying it. I was a bit nervous at first but bit the dust and made the purchase anyway. I have to say I am very pleased with this watch. The band is a bit thinner than my previous G shock watches. It doesn't seem quite as rugged as others I have had over the years, but the fit is really nice. It is softer and stays put better on my wrist. I don't even notice it on my arm. It is the same size as my previous G Shock watches which I like a lot. It commands attention and is a serious looking watch. I don't mind it being so shiny as it looks a bit more dressy than the typical G Shock watch which looks more like a sports watch or even a work watch. It is much easier to read the face to me with bigger numbers and the background color. I like that a lot as my eyes aren't what they used to be. The night light works great as do the other features. The book is a bit hard to read as the print is so tiny, but the setup was easy especially if you have had G Shock watches in the past. The menus are exactly the same and easy to figure out. Initial setup took only seconds to complete and the watch run perfectly. I am very happy with this watch. It looks nice, plenty rugged, good price, nice presentation case and the vendor got it to me in no time at all. I would give it 5 start if it were a bit more thicker in the band. The plastic seems to be just a bit thin and softer than I am used to. I really hope it is just as strong as I tend to be hard on my watches. My previous G Shock watches were built like tanks and I have always loved that. Time will tell how this performs over the years. But if you are considering a nice new G Shock watch I would say this watch is a very good buy. I think you will be very happy with your purchase.
