I just purchased this watch. So far, it has been more than I expected. The calibratable temp works out nice, since I use ambient temperature to determine how much of a certain finish to apply and allow for adequate drying and curing. The countdown timer comes in handy with 2-part mixtures. I know everyone isn't a painter, but as far as I am concerned, this watch is everything advertised and more. It is a good buy.
takes 3 hours and 50 pages of instructions to set, after that it is great
This watch has an analog dial, with digital display in the background. Besides the common time and date, stopwatch, alarm and countdown timer, it has world timezones, moon phase, tide settings and a thermometer. The manual is tiny and hard to read, but I easily found a PDF version on the Internet. Entering the tide info was a bit tedious, but the instructions were clear. There is a built-in thermometer, but with the factory settings it read way too high. There is a way to offset the base temp, and at the maximum low setting it reads about right while on my wrist. The manual says for accurate readings, take the watch off of your wrist and wait 25 minutes. Probably true, but who's going to do that? I like big readable numbers for the analog dial, but this watch has very tiny ones. I'll get used to it. There is a backlight that can be manual or automatic (tilt watch up).
This watch would have been a great deal if the thermometer accurately measured the temperature of the wearer's surroundings rather than the temperature half an inch above the wearer's wrist. The watch's other functions are adequate, and the display is great, but the fact that the watch will only give an useful temperature reading when not worn is a huge letdown. A few other reviewers remarked on the inaccuracy of the thermometer, but more reviewers seemed pleased than not, so since the price was right I decided to give it a try. While not disgusted enough with the product to return it, I would not recommend it to anyone else.
Other notes: setting up the tide graph and moon phase functions was not terribly complicated, but I did find it necessary to look up certain information online to complete the setup.
The watch looks nice, but as one of its touted features fails to perform adequately, I would not purchase this product again, not would I suggest it to anyone else.
i am a big watch collector/wearer/shopper/fan. this is the first Casio i have owned since the 4th grade. and honestly, i was quite surprised. the little "gadgets" that are on this watch are pretty darn impressive. they each have their nuances (for example: the thermometer on the watch is a tiny sensor on the side. since it is up against your skin, you get a constant reading of the temperature of your hand. readings are taken every 120 seconds, so to get an accurate reading of the outside temperature, you have to take the watch off, lay it aside, and wait until it cools off and takes 4 or 5 readings. which ends up taking 10 or 15 minutes just to get a temperature.) anyways, aside from the little nuances and idiosyncracies, this is a fantastic watch. ive already recommended it to friends.
i am very happy with it good buy.
The thermometer is a joke. It does never indicate the exact temperature and it overheats when you put it on. Everything else seems a little complicated to use unless you carry your instructions manual all the time with you. It is overpriced.
My husband was delighted with the watch, he spent half the day setting all the bells and whistles.
This watch has many features and quite easy to set up and use once one takes time to read the manual. However the dial design is clumsy and crowded so that ts usefulness is reduced significantly. The hands make the reading time and other details like day-date extremely diffficult. I do not recommend this watch.
My husband was happy with the watch. The only thing it didn't have was sunrise and sunset. But the phases of the moon and tide info were a hit for my hunting and fishing hubby.
Bought this watch for my husband who's a surf bum and he likes it especially because of the price. Surf watches with these features are usually over $100.00 but are no good when you replace the battery because they seem to lose their waterproof seal. Only problem is the analog dial is sometimes hard to read and it blocks the digital time.
Great watch, I have the same watch that I bought 5 years ago and it still running on the original batteries, that I believe is a record for any watch I have ever bought. Now, why did I buy a second one, dial is different colors, so different styles. By the way, a great price, $28 less than the joke known as MSRP. One thought, go the Casio site and download the manuel, you will be very happy, five full side pages to know to set up rather then the little terrible manuel that comes with it, same info, spread over tiny pages (30 -40).
Nice watch, but it needs a crystal protector. Will be very easy to scratch/break the crystal lense.
The thermometer does not seem to work properly/give accurate reading or even close.
All other options of the watch work great and is user friendly. Great for wet weather too.
I still can not find out how to set the information about tide graph and Lunitidal interval hours & longitude. What I can say is this watch is not easy to get the info it needs. Because I google it, and I found many people have the same question as mine and they still don't get the answer they want.
The face is very small and all the information very hard to read. We read and tried to follow the directions for setting up the information....and it's not clear at all. We could not figure it out :( The watch will be going back, sorry to say.
Not only does it tell time, but the as well. Nice watch.
This watch is good for time only, this watch don't read proper outside temperature, It's read your hand temperature too, I use this for walk and run, not quit satisfy,
Great product a little had to set though
