Nice features, cheaply made
on September 2, 2013
This is my third casio and each time, they get lighter and use more plastic. The lighter is OK, but all the plastic that looks like metal really feels cheap to me. The feature set is nice, although the utility of the altimeter is low because when I would need it, I have a gps, and the temperature reads high (like other posters have mentioned). Probably the biggest frustration however, is I've only owned it a few months and twice the watch has completely reset on me, like a computer crash where it loses all it's memory. It was pretty baffling at first to get it reprogrammed, because the hand set was completely off. Once you reset the hand set to zero, then you can reprogram it. I also don't like that the digital time display is very, very small.
See comments below. The plastic frame on this watch is weaker than the spring bar used to hold the band in place, and damage to the plastic is not covered by warranty. Very disappointing.
