5.0 out of 5 stars Great Watch, March 10, 2013

This review is from: Casio Men's GWM500A-1 "G-Shock" Resin Solar Sport Watch (Watch)
Ok first of all I work outside a lot in dust dirt and mud. Needed a tough watch and this is it. The band is not attached with some flimsy easy to bend and pop out pins it's screwed in. The mode buttons are recessed and unless you intentionally press them no oops moments. The resin band is flexible but tough (not cheap plastic). The display is large and easy to read. No need to press a light button to see at night as the watch has a sensor that turns the light on when you bring it up to look at the time. Unlike battery operated watches this never needs one and you watch doesn't gain or loose time like the battery types. Automatically sets time with signal from Atomic Signal. 12 or 24 hr time settings. Easy 1 button setting of modes no hold button "a" while pushing button "c" stuff. Very easy to adjust settings and functions. Best watch I have ever owned (58 yrs old ). Watch automatically goes into sleep mode to conserve charge. Alarm is pretty loud, and all functions (stop watch, timer ect) are easy to use and set. there are more expensive watches with Temp and Barometric pressure readings and compass functions. BUT if you read the small print those watches have a caution that these functions aren't real accurate and that you have to take the watch off to get the temp. The 3 little round circles that you see are there for function not decoration the 1st one is a Min, or Seconds count down, the second one is charge level, and the 3rd one lets you know which functions (ie
alarm, timer ect) you have set.

UPDATE 9 Sept 2014: This watch has been dropped, dunked in water, in the dark for a week and never has it failed to do its job still a TOP NOTCH watch.

Hey JD, thanks for the review, it helped me to make up my mind and purchase the watch!

Quick question, mastered most of the functions on the watch , but the one that's stumping me is the largest of the circular dials (above time) and 1st on the left. You mention it can 'count down' in seconds or five minute intervals, but I cant find in the manual how you chose which setting you want. I'm currently on a second counter, but want it moving only every 5 minutes.

Any help gratefully received.
