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.

pros: super lightweight that fits my 7" wrist perfectly (the wingy things actually help!)
awesome looks (negative display is not that hard to read and EL function set to 1 second is perfect for quick reads.
200M water resistance, solar, atomic function is awesome, countdown timer, stopwatch, alarms, and UDT/world time.
extensive manual (must read!).
cons: looks like a bullfrog is sitting on your wrist at certain angles (yeah, some poster over at WUS commented about this and the SOB was right (lol). Oh well, I have blacked out bezel screws from PACPARTS and an extra bezel coming so I can "stealth" it out.
All-in-all I like her so far, only time will tell if she can live up to the G-Shock name.
My 2 stars is for three things.
1. The solar function does not work adequately. I don't know if mine was broken but it never went above medium charge even in constant direct sunlight. I immediately left for the Philippines for a week from northwest USA when I bought this watch. It was in direct, hot, 90 degree sun for approx 8 days. Once I returned home, it would die daily even with being around light sources all day and set under a light all night.
2. The display is VERY DARK. It is very difficult to read in many conditions and you WILL need the backlight to read it which drains the battery, thus further complicating the solar issue I addressed in #1.
3. Backlight. There's two settings, 1.5 sec and 3 sec. You have to push a dedicated button to light it and can't even get through functions in time before it goes off. It's basically only good for reading the time. I feel the light should come on with a push of any button to facilitate changing functions. The auto EL is nice, but is a little finicky.
Overall, I like the watch's fit, finish, look and the functions. But it needs some refining in the categories I mentioned.
Thanks and enjoy your watch or watches.
