Take it to the max with the shock-resistant, solar-powered Casio G-Shock GW300A-1V digital sports watch, which offers a wealth of performance timing features and cutting edge technology. The GW300A-2V has a durable blue resin case that's topped by a silver bezel with sky blue highlights, and a comfortable blue resin strap. It has a 1/100-second stopwatch with a 24-hour measuring capacity and elapsed time, split time, and 1st/2nd place time modes. It also offers such timekeeping functions as 12/24-hour formats, year/month/date/day display (with an autocalendar to the year 2039), daylight savings time on/off, and world time for 26 time zones and 30 cities. Make it to your next appointment on time with 4 independent daily alarms (with a snooze function) and an optional hourly time signal.
It receives a time calibration signal transmitted from Fort Collins, Colorado, and signal reception is possible within a radius of about 2,000 miles from the Fort Collins transmitter. You can choose to automatically receive this signal (once per day at 1 AM) or manually update the G-Shock to the atomic clock. It's solar-powered--charging in either sunlight or indoor light--so you'll never have to deal with changing the battery. It offers water resistance to 200 meters (660 feet), suitable for scuba diving.
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 buttons are quite recessed and not easily accessible. They are made that way to protect the watch but you cant easily use the stopwatch function. Its not a problem for me, I just want a watch that is accurate, durable, and never needs batteries. Once you get an atomic watch its a good feeling to know that you have the EXACT time and it will never need resetting, unless you change time zones.
I live in Michigan and havent had a problem getting a good time sych.
The biggest drawback is the included manual...very small and difficult to read. All watches seem to have gone to very small manuals with small print. Download a copy of the manual that is online, makes it a lot easier.
I would recommend this watch.
I won't go through the myriad of features that this watch has since they've been covered by other reviewers. Suffice it to say it has enough features to satisfy the most demanding techo-geek.
The watch arrived and I was very pleased to take it out of the box and find it showing the correct time. I don't know if NYC is the default city or if someone sets these watches, but it came set for NYC and for Daylight Savings Time. I didn't have to adjust a thing. The battery was showing Medium. I did turn on the automatic back light feature, but after seeing how often it came on, I turned it back off.
My main concern with this watch was whether or not I could receive the radio signals from Ft. Collins, CO. since I'm in the boonies of upstate NY. When I took the watch out of the box it showed that it had last received a signal on Sept. 22. I received it on the 27th. That night I left it on the window sill next to my bed and, sure enough, it received the signal at 5:03 AM. It has received the signal each morning at 5:03 AM since I've owned it with the exception of one night when I tried leaving it on the nightstand. It was only about 6 inches from the window sill but apparently that's enough to make a difference.
This watch seems to really love natural sunlight. I've worn it under bright flourescent lights at work all day and I've set it under an incandescent lamp for hours at a time but the battery meter would not go to High. We finally got a sunny day and I wore it outside and in no time the battery moved to High. It slipped back to Medium as soon as I went back inside. We're approaching winter here so I'm a little concerned about having opportunities to be in the sun. I'm hoping that if I can get it solidly into High that the ambient light will be able to maintain it.
The watch is attractive although a little thick. But if you've had any kind of alarm chronograph it's really not any bigger. It has a ton of features and they all work as advertised. If you want to always know the exact time, not have to fiddle with time setting or Daylight Savings Time, Leap Year, or changing batteries (hopefully), then this watch is for you. It's a lot of bang for the buck.
*** ADDED *** We finally had a sunny day and I sat the watch on a table where the sun was hitting it and left it there a couple of hours. The battery meter went to High and has stayed there ever since.
Just adding few words on it. It was a great watch that I loved with every aspect but I just lost it few days back (in April 2010). It was working perfectly and the only maintenance was to wash it in a timely manner to protect its band.

1..Time sync with atomic clock.
The time is the same with my work's clock, so it's accurate to know when a particular program script has run.Read more
