5.0 out of 5 stars Best timer watch around!, August 24, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Casio Women's LA670WA-1 Daily Alarm Digital Watch (Watch)
This is the "dressy" version of Casio LA11WB-1 there are more reviews for it since many of us have owned this earlier version for 15+ years.

The pros:

The countdown timer - this is why we love this watch. You push a single button once and a timer is set for 1 minute, each time you press the button, the time increases 1, 3, 5, 10, 15, 20, 30 then reset. It's not too terribly loud. I have used this since my kids were babes, through time-outs, and we have X minutes until we leave. I've never had this feature go out on the watch so the button and electronics must be pretty good.

The price - I can afford to keep a backup on hand

The band - I have actually preferred the metal band and haven't had any trouble with it. I have a very small wrist so it may make a difference having the extra wrap portion underneath. The plastic band on the LA11WB-1 tends to break on me fairly quickly. I do have the LA11WB-1 as my backup in my jewelry box - just in case.

Overall - This watch is a little prettier than the plastic band. It still is a little "geeky" but more appropriate for business attire.

The cons:

No light - Not a good watch for dark areas.

As I get older, the little bars across the top that indicate time remaining get harder and harder to see.

This is not a watch to pass down to your grandchildren. The other model typically lasts about 1/2 - 2 years. I would assume this watch will be comparable but we'll see after they've been out a couple of years. When the battery goes out, I've had about a 50% success rate of having a replacement battery work. The batteries are a pain to get to, it's hard to find a place that is familiar with this watch, that has the battery, and will replace it. Any other problems that might arise cost far more than the replacement cost.

Recommendation: Buy 2 - one of each style so you'll have a backup.

I couldn't find the model number of the watch I owned, but I think it must be the LA11WB because I can't find it anywhere, and it's been discontinued from what I see from searches.
