4.0 out of 5 stars still love them, but mostly I just want a watch ...
By James Davis on October 4, 2016
I’m over big, bulky watches. I’ve got my Suunto and a couple G-Shock watches. I still wear them, still love them, but mostly I just want a watch that keeps nice, precise time, doesn’t stand out from my wrist 3/4 inch and hopefully looks juuuust a little dorky. I’m also cheap. Waterproofness is important to me. I work a desk job. I commute by bus or train- watches help with that. I like to go on a run a couple times a week and wear a watch. I don’t sleep or shower with my watch on unless I’m camping or in a hotel. I like digital over analog because I kind of like to know exactly what time I think it is and I only ever estimate when I’m reading an analog watch because I’m lazy. Also, when I’m in a meeting or I’ve been pinned-down by someone I don’t want to talk to and I want to know if this really is taking forever or if my perception of the passage of time is just being warped- it’s easier to sneak a peek at a digital watch and get a precise read. I realized a few months ago that I really am just as happy wearing a $15 Casio as I am with my $250 Suunto and that most days I don’t need to know the barometric pressure. Some days, yes. Most days, no. But I like having a variety of watches (including the Suunto, which is fabulous). And I like to choose which watch to wear each morning. That’s fun for me. Recently I got on Amazon and ordered a bunch of new cheap Casio watches. I got four new watches for $52. I think Timex’s are over-priced. That’s how cheap I am.

Casio W-800HAV ($20-ish) Digital Black. My eight-year old son and I each got one of these watches for Christmas 2016. We both love it. We both have other watches but wear this one the most. It has a fairly low profile- doesn’t catch on pockets or shirt sleeves. I love the light- it looks stupid, like piddly. But it actually lights the face well. I go jogging at night sometimes. The light works well enough for me to see how slow I am even while I’m bouncing down the road. And it’s got “Dual Display”. I don’t know what else to call that. It shows the time on one part of the screen and at the same time it show the stopwatch numbers. Nice to keep track of both. Or, If I’m out and about, I’ll set a stopwatch when the train goes by because I know that the train comes by every 15 minutes. So I can see when I’m coming up on another 15-minute mark and also see the time on the sub-display.

Casio F-201WA ($10.47) Digital Black. Comfortable. Lightweight. Easiest buttons to push. Good light. I like that it has countdown timer and lots of alarms. I miss being able to see the time when it’s in stopwatch mode like I can with the W-800HAV and the WV-200A.

Casio WV-200A ($40-ish) Waceceptor Digital Black with chrome and red. Looks good. Like the steel case. Good protection for the glass. Relatively heavy. A liiiiitle too thick. Really nice buttons. Great electro-luminescent light. This one is the only watch of the group that you can set it so it doesn’t beep every time you push a button. I really like being able to turn the beep off. Sometimes I like to set a stopwatch in a meeting so I can see how long somebody is going on with some bullsh*t. Strangely, timing somebody’s bullsh*t is a nice distraction from the bullsh*t. But I don’t like my watch to beep when I’m doing pushing buttons. “Dual display”- you can still see what time it is when you’re in other modes. Countdown timer is nice and many of my other watches don’t have one. I don’t give it extra points for the whole Wave Ceptor thing. Doesn’t add any value for me and it kinda sucks battery. This watch has been on my wrist for a full day of snorkelling and handled it beautifully. I live in a land-locked state, so when I get to the ocean, I’m in the water ALL DAY LONG. I can’t dive deeper than maybe 20 feet, so it’s not a serious test for a watch that says it’s good to 200m. But if you’re diving to 200m and time is critical, you’re going to spring for something more than a $40 Casio. (I love you, Casio).

Casio HDA-600 ($14.79) Black Analog. Not the most comfortable. Kinda squeezes my wrist from bone to bone or flops around a bit. I dunno, it just fits weird. YMMV. Love the face protector. Can’t wait until it starts to look a little banged up. Glowy dots on the hands aren’t really impressive. Date window works perfectly. Looks tough but it’s probably not. I like it a lot.

Casio MQ24-7B2 ($14-something) White-faced Analog. Incredibly light. Truly forget that you’re wearing it. Easy to read. No date window. No lumi. Nice, simple and never catches your sleeve in a dress shirt. Yes, I’m fancy. Some people are smart enough to read an analog watch that doesn’t have numbers on it- just dots. I’m not one of those people. I screw it up enough when there’s numbers. This has numbers. I like numbers. Haven’t tested this one for waterproofyness. Casio only says it’s water resistant. I hardly ever do underwater demolitions anymore.

Casio A168W-1 ($16.15) Stainless Digital. I love / hate this watch. I don’t know if Casio was really trying to make a watch that looks fancy but it’s really a dork-bomb, or if they we’re going for dork-bomb as their aim. Either way. This watch is a stunning success. I think this watch is the pinnacle of nerd-swank. 1980’s wannabe stockbroker, cool old guy who doesn’t give a sh*t, little bit of silver under the sleeve to catch someone’s eye- oh wait it’s a friggin Casio digital. I mean, it’s chrome-plated PLASTIC for crying out loud. How awesome is that? I love all of that. Love it. It’s got the Illuminator light, which works great. Clock, date, stopwatch and alarm. No countdown timer. The metal band is not comfortable. It’s got edges and it pulls on my arm fur. Clasp works great and it’s wicked-easy to adjust. Slips under a dress shirt easily. Again: super-dorky. Makes me smile every time I put it on. Then wince when it pulls the fur.

Casio F91W-1 ($11.35) Black Digital. I like this watch a lot. It’s super thin. Very lightweight. The light looks stupid but it works well. The buttons are easy to hit. It ranks pretty high on the ‘Dork’ scale. People recognize it. Hold that one button down and it says CASIo. It’s great. Proud to say I’ve never worn this watch along with flannel and a beanie. Never.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best $17 I ever spent.... period
By GILDO on September 8, 2017
This watch takes me way back. Its 80s retro that still looks great. It sizes up very easily and gets much more attention than my Omega and Seikos. It feels like a $100 watch but that's the highest I'm going to go for this bad boy. I like to wear the watch snug and there are no hair pulls. This watch makes people smile...and it actually looks very good. The numbers are legible, it has an hourly chime, and an alarm and stopwatch. The LED light is awesome.....I wish it came with a countdown timer. This is a no-nonsense watch and right out the box its easy to operate. This would make a great gift......for anyone...because I guarantee whoever receives this watch will smile and remember simpler times.

5.0 out of 5 stars Its a very nice digital watch
By Alejandro Vasquez on April 23, 2016
I took a couple of months before writing this, just in case. Vanity is what takes stars from this product; opinions about the case being stainless steel or not don't matter much, I mean are you going to be drilling the thing? the test of time? You get what you pay for. Its a very nice digital watch. Simple and clean. Gets the job done. The wristband is adjustable in case you were wondering. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Must buy.
By Aldair Novelo on August 14, 2015
Absolutely love it. I have a Seiko watch which was about $300, so this watch feels so much lighter, but you get used to it. I bought this model and an A158W which has a slightly smaller face for my girlfriend, she loves her watch as well. I would definitely recommend this. Any questions? Feel free to ask.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good watch with quality control issue?
By CM on July 5, 2016
After my Motorola smartwatch broke in less than 3 years of usage, I wanted to get something simple and durable. I decided for Casio A168W-1 after reading many good reviews. Also, nostalgia definitely played huge role on this purchase, hahaha...

I somehow ended up buying 2 by accident, but I'm glad I did.

One of the watch was in perfection shape. But the other one was making loud squeaky noise when I was shaking even just a little bit. It also had some weird stain. I wouldn't expect much from $20 watch, but such QC failure is a surprise when it comes to Casio product. I remember them as being a solid company making solid products. Hopefully I was one of very few unlucky one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Half price at amazon than H Samuel
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on June 10, 2018
I was after a cheap watch for everyday wear and at work and which was tough. So after having this casio watch in the 80s myself,i just had to buy it again! The watch came in a proper casio box from amazon and was well packaged.
Its an original watch with a stainless steel strap,im a 16 stone man with big wrists so it fits me perfect!! The quality is excellent also. Before buying this watch i saw this watch on the high street H Samuel where its £40 pounds also same at other shops online for exactly the same watch of the same quality so i dont know how amazon sells it for half the price as i thought it might be of a inferior quality from amazon.
Its a good buy so im well happy .

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on September 15, 2019
An AMAZING product really recommended, if you have ANY hesitation about purchasing this beauty I assure you look no further. This is the watch you need, price - amazing, comfortability - through the roof, easy to read - most defiantly. For the cheap price tag this is the BEST thing I have spent £20 on this year. I wore this little guy on my wrist everyday 7 days a week whenever I could, until after I lost at some shabby waste of money party, heart-breaking experience for me and all my close friends who know the sentimental value this watch has to me, the watch itself was almost part of me and my personality, I feel less masculine without it by my side. Sorry to end this positive review on a sad note, just got a little emotional as I am still grieving my loss, hope you can all understand. I have attached an image of me modelling the watch for you all to see. Lastly I would like to give thanks to you Casio, for creative an affordable buy classy watch for all.
