The Casio Forester moon phase fishing watch is the perfect timepiece for avid anglers, with a stylish design well suited for both land and sea wear. In addition to the automatic time, day, month and date displays, this convenient digital watch also indicates the best times to fish based on the moon's phase, latitude and longitude. The watch displays the moon's age, phase and time, as well as sunrise and sunset information, for the current or designated day. A handy vibration alert can be used with the daily alarm, hourly time signal, or fishing timer so as not to disturb the quiet on the water. The watch also offers a time memo, a 1/100 second stopwatch, and five daily alarm settings. An automatic electro-luminescent backlight with afterglow makes the display easy to read at any time, and the water-ready nylon band comes with a buckle clasp. The case is made from durable polyurethane resin, the bezel is resin and the watch is water resistant up to 330 feet (100 meters). This watch offers a battery life of approximately five years.
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.

I actually use many of the features. The four points of the moon give me a much better tide presentation than the G-Shocks with tide displays. It turns out that at my house the tides are high when the moon is straight up and down at full and new moon and low at the horizon points. I have to shift that two hours at quarter moon and have learned to interpolate. So I regularly look at the four points of the moon times and correlate the moon age. Sunrise and sunset are also accurate.
I do wish they would find a better use for the memo memory. Fishermen are supposed to keep such records, but you can't enter enough information to make it useful. You are better off judging fishing times based on tides and conditions, and true solunar tables are a little more variable than the watch. So the fishing times and quality aren't especially useful, but I still occasionally look to see what the watch thinks.
The great feature is the alarm. There are five alarms and you can set them daily or for specific days of the week. The vibration will wake me from a dead sleep. Mine goes off twice a day and on one day of each week. It did that for nearly five years on the original battery. I am the only one who knows it is alarming, which I like.Read more ›
I did all the setup for him. He loves the watch, he wears it even not go fishing. His friends keep asking where to get one.
Its not too big as i thought.
Very nice leather, cloth band and 100m water resist,5stars for the moon phase feature.
Too bad it doesnt have navigator and tide chart, not with $35 lol...
A very nice, fun and afordable gift.
well worth the price!
My favorite is the vibrating alarm. I haven't ever seen that on a watch before. The automatic light is amazing as well. You can set the watch so the light comes on when you tip it at a 45 degree angle. This is a feature you can turn on or off.
As far as the other features, I'm not a hunter, but see a lot of uses for non-hunters. The watch actually knows when the sun and moon rise and set based on coordinates for your area. The sound alarm works well. You can set up to 5 different alarms for different times of the day.
If you're a hunter, this is the perfect watch! It tells you the ideal feeding times and hunting times based on coordinates for your area. You would be able to know a bunch of information with minimal body movement.
The only negative is the camouflage wrist band, but that can be easily replaced. It's also a hunting watch, so that's probably a positive if I were a hunter. I just got the watch because I'm a gadget guy.
