Casio G-Shock line are about as tough as watches can get and then some. Recently I had to return a solar/atomic version that was not working correctly, so I had time to do some additional research.
The battery in this watch will last about 3 years (although Casio officially claims 2 years). The internal battery is one of the cheaper and highly available models, so there should be no problems with replacement. Solar models, I discovered, have batteries that only last 3 years, then it is difficult and expensive to replace them. To me that defeats the reason for having a solar-powered watch.
The face on this watch is slightly smaller and much more appealing than other G-Shock watches. It really looks elegant and I love having hands, digital time, world times, alarms, etc. The hands do not interfere with your digital panel view most of the time.
The circle display at the 3 o'clock position can be clicked for time (12/24 hours), day of week or date. If you have one preference over the other, it will stay on the setting you click, or you can change it with a click.
The light feature illuminates the whole watch, not just the digital frames. Nice! It is water resistant to 200 mtrs, so it makes an excellent watch for diving, swimming, surfing, etc.
It's easy to set both the hands and digital aspects of this watch. If you are like me, you'll need a microscope to read the manual. If you go to the Casio USA site, you can obtain a PDF of the manual by inputing the four digit code in the square from the back of your watch. Then you can magnify it as large as required.
In my opinion you can't go wrong by purchasing this watch for yourself or as a gift. Make sure you call your local Walmart before you use ship to store, as this website does not include all items in stock at your local Walmart.

I got this watch for my husband a couple years ago. His family got him 2 watches for Christmas and he broke both within a couple months. He has yet to break this one and he works it hard. Its covered in paint which he has scraped off and not scratched the screen, it has not needed a new battery and he has hit it on numerous items. It withstands everything and he has constantly said its the best watch he has ever had. I will say that changing the time is difficult and we have to look it up twice a year for daylight savings but its worth it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pete356 Great watch!
I've owned Casio watches all my life and I'm still impressed with the quality.
It works as advertised and is a nice looking watch. I had no problem setting it.
The light is nice and bright. Great watch!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Toro14 Great everyday watch
This watch was chosen because of robust build and style. There is no need to worry about the occasional scrape or scuff when wearing casually or working on projects in the shop. Comfortable fit and all necessary key information are available at a glance. The lighted background display is handy, however the hands are sometimes difficult to see after dark. This is a good solid every day wear watch.
