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.

The silver paint will eventually rub off the resin portion of the bezel, but it is barely noticeable. Again, it's an under $30 watch - not an under $300 watch.
The hands are luminous at night and the digital info lights up at the press of a button - more readable than Indiglo on a Timex Ironman digital. You can easily set the electroluminescence to automatically turn on when the watch is raised for viewing.
The array of functions is phenomenal - particularly because of the user friendliness. It's easy to scroll through all the functions and use whatever you wish. For example, one of my favorites is to set the stopwatch during a run so I can tell elapsed time at a glance, while also having the analog to tell me actual time of day. It keeps time very well.
I am entirely too concerned about having the hands match the digital display down to the second, but it can be set to do so with no great effort.
This is a phenomenal set of features and durability for a watch at this price point.
After over four years, the plastic connector on the metal band has finally broken. I purchased a Nato watch band as a replacement, and will continue wearing it as a casual/workout watch. The black Nato band looks good with the black watch face.
Because of the band breaking, I reluctantly have only assigned four stars instead of five. That's probably a mistake, given reasonable expectations for the price point.
I have used the alarm and timer functions and found the audible tone to be very low, if you are awake and waiting for it you will hear it, but don't expect it to wake you up from nap. The watch is fairly light, and the strap is easy to adjust and use. Maybe it is because it is thicker than I expected, but I have scratched the face couple times now, I have no recollection of what I hit it on, so it must have been a minor rub, but the scratches are noticeable.
Overall, the watch is functional and may last for years, time will tell. The attached photos are after using the watch for about a month, they are taken under the same light, only adjusting the angle of the watch slightly to highlight the digital display.
Someone complained about the rubber/plastic fitting at the end of the band. That IS irritating. Did they really save that much money on that one plastic/rubber piece? Weird choice, and one that cut off a star. Also, the watch has a strange shape. It is kind of volcano shaped, and that shape is simply not aesthetically pleasing to me. But I think the plastic spot on the metal band is enough to take off a star. Sure, I guess I could have seen it, but it's weird and not what a person would expect with a metal band.
Otherwise, I can't complain. Others complain about it being easy to scratch. I haven't run into that yet. I'm not too rough on watches though, and don't bump into things a lot. We'll see, but I don't use it a lot, since it's simply ugly to me. But that is personal.
A very practical watch, however, and probably the best analog/digital I've seen - if it weren't for that darn plastic/rubber fitting on the metal band! Ugh!
