Product Description

Combining hip retro style and modern technology, the Casio Men's Tough Solar Digital Sports Watch is a straightforward and sophisticated timepiece for the modern man. With a blocky, silver-tone case framing a square digital display, this unique watch is powered with solar energy, meaning you will never have to buy a battery again. A convenient sun symbol keeps you informed about your battery, which is easily charged with inside or outside light. The LED light allows for night-time viewing, and this streamlined display offers a daily alarm, stopwatch, day, date, month, and the option for 12 or 24 hour clock. A center strand of vertical links details the stainless steel band, which fastens with a quick and secure fold-over clasp. Bring back the classic look with this stylish and reliable timepiece from Casio.

Casio

With the launch of its first watch in November 1974, Casio entered the wristwatch market at a time when the watch industry had just discovered digital technology. As a company with cutting-edge electronic technology developed for pocket calculators, Casio entered this field confident that it could develop timepieces that would lead the market.

Today, Casio is focusing its efforts on solar-powered radio-controlled watches: the built-in solar battery eliminates the nuisance of replacing batteries, atomic timekeeping means the users never have to reset the time. Recently, Casio launched a series of Bluetooth watches that sync to the users cell phone to automatically update the time. Casio is always moving time forward.

    So I don't understand the other reviewers complaints about it not working when the sun sets. Why would CASIO make a watch that did that?? That would be an extremely lame thing to manufacture.

    All you had to do was read the instruction manual, it states that the watch must be charged for 3-6 hours (where 3 hours is outdoor sunlight, and 6 hours is under office lighting).

    There is a little icon on the screen that looks like a little sun; when that goes out the watch is fully charged.

    On a full charge, the 2505 model will last 14 days without needing a charge again from its solar panel! The other model (not the 2505 version) will last 4 days on a single charge.

    Okay so the watch does not have a backlight, but so what. It still provides an alarm and hourly chime features.

    It also has that cool 80's retro look, yet has 21st century technology utilizing supercapacitors instead of batteries. Truly a watch you can say is powered by the sun and not using up our resources to power itself.

    I am surprised the green movement has not seized up this really cool technology.
    Way to go CASIO for another home run of a watch - love your products ever since the 80s!

    I've had this watch for about a week and until I was able to give it a full charge in direct sun, the lcd screen would fade in and out while indoors, because of this I had to reset the time on several occassions. But once it was charge, the time kept accurately and has worked perfectly. Like other reviewers, a backlight would have been nice, but I really do rely on my cell phone clock most times.

    The watch band is very adjustable which was important for me because I have tiny wrists. There was no need to remove any links, simply adjust the latch, lock it into place, and you're set.

    I'm glad to not have to ever buy batteries again!

    Its got the nice retro look to it and it does what it's supposed to do. I looked up on the Casio site and found out that this is one of the milestone watches (well, a remake) from 1987; sweet.

    It tells the time, date and day. Its got an alarm and does the little beep at every hour mark (you can turn that off, if you want; I like it cause it helps me keep track of time). I love the stop watch as well; it only does an hour. I badly needed a good stop watch for all the experiments I was doing, and the analog watch wasn't up to par. The solar power is nice.

    Simple, Retro and Minimalist. [I don't need those other excessive features: like weather, altitude, temperature or my position to true north]

    NOTE: Keep the watch in direct sunlight for 3 hours when you first get it and you should be all set. There is a little 'sun' icon when it needs charging, but that should never pop up unless you're in a cave for a month. The occasional stroll outside and looking at time should be enough. Finally, it's very easy to change the wristband size.

    Bought this (even when some reviewers said it doesn't work at night) and after charging it for 3-6 hours as the manual says this thing works flawlessly as expected. Never gone out of juice and never had to sit it under the sun for an "all-stop" recharge. Normal wear at daylight or even night lights will do the recharge to this baby. The only thing that bugs me is the chromed plastic construction. Somehow I remember the Casio being more sturdy (and bigger) when I was a kid, oh well, that was the 80s anyways!

    Cheers!

    I've had this watch for two and a half years now and wear it pretty much every day. When I bought it, I was basically looking for a simple, reliable, solar powered watch with a metal wrist band. I dislike those resin watch bands because they never last me more than 2 or 3 years before breaking. The great thing about the metal band on this watch is that you do not need to remove any links to adjust it.

    This watch has lived up to my expectations. I've kept it running continuously ever since I first got it just by letting it charge up for a few hours by a windowsill once a week. Most of the time while I'm wearing it, it is covered up by my sleeve, but that hasn't been a problem at all.

    I haven't really used the alarm function. The alarm will only beep for about 20 seconds; hardly long or loud enough to wake me up from sleep. A couple of times I turned on the hourly chime, but found it to get quite annoying after a day or two and turned it back off. Occasionally I have used the stopwatch, but the maximum length of time it can measure is 59m:59s. Not always, but a few times, when I reset the stopwatch, the entire watch reset and I lost the time and date as well. That is the reason I give this watch 4 stars and not 5. It's not a big deal since I don't use the stopwatch often anyway. Other than that, the watch is very reliable.

    Other pluses are that it is water resistant and the lens seems to be fairly scratch resistant. Mine has no scratches on it at all after 2-1/2 years. Also, it looks great on the wrist. Love the retro design.

    I bought this watch, and I'm real happy with it. Very affordable but very nice, simple, but classy, and it's a Casio.

    The only thing it's missing is a backlight, but that's ok because you probably have a cellphone with the time in it if you need to look at the time and it's pitch black.

    Only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is because of the blacklight thing.

    Some people are saying that it quickly runs out of batteries or something like that, but like someone here already said, and like the little instruction booklet says

    "On a full charge, the 2505 model will last 14 days without needing a charge again from its solar panel! The other model (not the 2505 version) will last 4 days on a single charge."
