Probably the best watch I own,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Casio Men's SGW300HB-3AVCF Multi-Function Sport Watch with Green Nylon Band (Watch)
I am retired military and law enforcement... been through a lot of watches. I have a few Pathfinders and a Suunto, but I really like this watch - it has everything I need. I do some land navigation and survival instruction and use this watch exclusively. The only thing it does not have that my Pathfinders do, is the compass feature... but I honestly never use the compass built into the watch. You'd be hard pressed to find a better watch, even at twice the price.

Would this be a good watch for boot camp?

I know this was from a long time ago, but if you still haven't gone, they're going to make you buy one from a PX on base. Don't bother.

Thanks for the info, always appreciated! I bit the bullet and went straight to college so I haven't gone, but still might since it's something I want to do. Hopefully I'm not too old yet by the time I get out of school

I filed a report on this watch awhile back generally glowing reviews. Since then I have had an experience I want to share with others. Focus on the right angle section of the metal buckle as it intersects with the wrist closest to the hand. Pick up something that compresses this band buckle into the wrist as I did, a load of firewood. The buckle edge will dig into the wrist and cut a small hole in the skin. Lesson. If wearing the watch when picking up anything heavy on the wrist area even when the watch is under clothing if the buckle corner is next to skin, you may get a cut. No big deal in itself the first time but after it happens the edge keeps pestering the wound so the watch has to come off.
