Great watch for moms,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Casio Women's BG3000-8 Baby-G Slim Marine Watch (Watch)
I purchased the Casio Baby G because I have three kids under the age of five and I was tired of losing track of time during playdates, overstaying, and paying the price through melt-downs. I had looked at several Casio watches for women, but decided on this grey one b/c it has FIVE alarms.
I love this watch. The watch displays the day, date, hour, minute, and second on the main face. Not only does it have the five alarms, it also has a mode where I can have it beep every hour on the hour. (This function can also be turned off.) It has a 3 second light up, that's great for the nights when I'm stuck in my baby's room trying to get her to sleep. It has different time zones, so once you set the watch, if your travel has you cross timezones, you merely select the proper time zone and it switches for you, without having to reset the time. You also have the option of turning daylight savings time on and off.
The watch is waterproof and I swim with it regularly. It also has a stop watch function, which I use daily for keeping track of how many minutes I've exercised. It also has a count down function that ends in an alarm. I use that for time outs and when I am cooking.
I am a very petite person with very slim wrists (5.5 inches around my wrist). I did not feel that the watch was too heavy or that it looked crazy big on me. It has a sporty look to it, which I like for everyday. Not a dinner party, dress up watch, but hopefully then, the kids will be with the sitter so I won't need the five alarms anyway. :)
