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.

This watch was very easy to program, and had all the features I wanted. The digital numbers are easy to read, multiple alarms, world times for different cities are a nice feature (we have friends in Europe, and it's always nice to know the time over there prior to calling).
As other reviewers have noted, you cannot see the digital output when you use the light in the dark...you can see the digital numbers on my timex explorer, but you still can't do anything with the digital programming while you're holding down the light button on the timex...so I really don't see this as a problem with the casio. All I ever want to do at night it simply check the time, and the light allows you to read the hands perfectly.
One note on the "notes/memo" function on this watch...I think it's a vestige from the days before cell phones and PDAs. I can't imagine taking the time to program in someone's phone number or a note about something...much easier to do that on my Blackberry. Still, it's there if anyone wants to use it.
As I mentioned earlier in this review, I have a timex expedition which is a digital/analog watch that I never use. If you're curious why I don't use it, it's because the thing is heavy and the ticking sound is too loud and keeps me from wearing the watch at night. I actually use the watch alarm as my daily alarm - it's loud enough to wake me up while not disturbing my wife.Read more ›
The glass scratches very very quickly, in fact so quickly that I am a little stunned. I've worn watches for the past 20 years, and I had a much more active lifestyle as a student for a majority of those years. I was active in sports and theater, and I've never had a watch scratch as quickly as this one. What is the glass made of? Why do I keep calling it glass, when it is clearly cheap plastic.
I asked Casio how much they would take to repair this $18 watch. They said $12 to change the glass, and $9 to ship it back to me.
I'm including a photo showing the new watch and the old one.
The watch has stopped fucntioning just after two three months. Only digital display giving the correct time.

I updated my review to one since zero star is not allowed. I went to the pool and the watch got moisture in the glass again. So I do not know what they repaired because it is worse than before.
Also, there is no longer the option of switching to a leather band or any band that is not Casio. Today I went to alot of stores and found out that the band for this watch is very unique and can't be replaced by an aftermarket watch band.
So now I'm even having trouble finding a replacement watch band on Amazon. Check it out if you don't believe me. Its must be 21mm with a unique ending only made by Casio and it should mention that it fits this model Casio watch.
I understand that Casio wants to make more money. But its a problem when you go to a store that sells Casio watches and they can't even help you. I tried that today at 3 stores including Sears and everybody explained the situation.
Now Casio might think, "oh good. This makes people buy a whole new watch". but its annoying to learn how to use a brand new watch after getting use to the one you have.
The plastic band has always been an issue. For the practical minded person its great. But "plastic" does not say "quality". So now I need to spend extra time that should be found easy at the local store. And it will cost $12 to $19 dollars (and the watch coast $20). So now they want to make most of their money in the watch band.
