Perfect watch for active people
on November 11, 2015
For what I needed and wanted, this watch was perfect. Inexpensive, durable, waterproof, easy to read time and date, alarm, hourly time signal, timer, and stopwatch.
I also own a Casio GA-150, so for people who also own Casio watches that are similar, here are some differences:
-This watch, the DW-6900, doesn't have a world clock
-It only has 1 alarm, whereas my other Casio has 5
-When changing something, like setting the time or setting an alarm or timer, there is no "reverse button". So with my other Casio, if I'm changing an alarm from 6:30 to 6:15 I can hit the reverse button and go backwards. With this watch, I have to hit forward and go past the :59 minute mark to start back at :00 again, and then keep pressing it up to :15.
-When the alarm goes off, this watch beeps 20 times, and my other watch beeps 10 times.
-When you switch modes, you don't have to cycle through all of the modes to get back to the default timekeeping mode. So for example, if I switch modes from timekeeping to the alarm, and leave it on the alarm mode for more than a few seconds(like setting a different alarm time), then push the mode button again, it will jump back to timekeeping and skip the other modes that come after alarm like timer and stopwatch. But if I press the mode button fairly quickly then it will take me to each mode. My other watch doesn't do this, but it's a feature I like.
-Lastly, I've noticed this watch is a bit smaller than the analog(or chronograph) watches that Casio makes.
This isn't an elegant watch and it isn't really attractive, but you'll never worry about breaking it or scratching it at all.
