This watch is what I expected. It took a while for me to get used to all the functions but I'm technically inclined. Not for people who can't program a recorder. It's definitely aesthetically pleasing. The LCD is quite small but I bought it for the analog display I wasn't expecting it to be large. The alarm could ring for more than 10 seconds though. I haven't tested the quality of the solar functions because I get a lot of sun in the Iraq desert.
Awesome, updates time 3 times a day. 12am, 2am & 4am. I was in the army and put it through everything possible and it still looks great. best watch I have ever had; best purchase I have ever made.
THIS WATCH IS GREAT I DON'T CARE WHAT OTHER PEOPLE SAY. SURE IT IS A BIT COMPLICATED BUT AS SONN AS YOU BUY IT, SET THE TIME FOLLOWING THE INSTRUCTIONS AND YOU'LL NEVER HAVE TO SET IT AGAIN. AFTER THAT, YOU CAN JUST LEARN HOW TO USE THE REST OF THE FEATURES LITTLE BY LITTLE AS YOU READ YOUR MANUAL ON YOUR SPARE CHANCES. ONCE YOU GO TO THE G-SHOCK.COM PAGE AND READ ON THE HISTORY YOU'LL FALL IN LOVE WITH THE BRAND. I LOVE MINE AND IT TOOK ME ABOUT 3 HOURS TO COMPLETELY UNDESTAND HOW TO USE IT.
Anytime I buy a watch for $100 I figure it will work better than a 25 dollar watch. This is not the case with this watch. The gadgets are cool, don't get me wrong but there are some serious drawbacks.
1) The light comes on every time that the band flexes.
2) When syncing to the atomic clock in Denver, the analog hands do not adjust. Just the digital ones. 3)It's big and bulky.
I have worn this watch daily for almost a month now and I have no complaints. It looks great and functions as it should. It is average sized and won't be too big for most wrists. Its not too hard to learn the functions, just takes some playing with after you read the instructions.
However, if you turn on the auto backlight, your battery will run down after a few days. But that doesn't matter because its solar powered. Just sit it under a lamp for an hour if it ever runs down (it shouldn't happen very often) and you will be good to go. Nice watch, and will recommend to anyone considering it.
I have always been a user of higher end, low maintenance timepieces and this one filled the profile. I bought an atomic updated watch years ago when they first became available but with the guarantee on this one it will last as long as i expect it to if not longer. Very professional looking yet very rugged as well. Got my 5 stars. -- and for those of you that posted the reviews that you couldn't adjust the hands or it wouldn't update automatically, READ THE MANUAL!! It took me a half hour and I know this thing inside and out. Enjoy!! An excellent buy and value for the few extra bucks spent!!
I bought this for my son for Christmas. He wears it daily and said he loves all the functions that the watch has and knows he will always have the exact time.
Fairly easy to setup. Was doubtful about the radio setting of the time, but when daylight saving time changed everything went without a problem! Band is a little too long, but I'l live with it.
Loved this watch. I love the fact that it sets itself and doesn't need a battery. This is the 2nd G-Shock I own (I still use my other one as well) Casio really set the bar high with this one
This is also my second G-SHOCK Atomic Watch...and only because I Like them. My original one is still keeping perfect time. Take a second to read the instructions and set the watch and you will never have to worry about it again...ever! No matter what you put it through!
Did not work could not set time hands were broken had to return
I received this as a gift last year. My old G-Shock is a backup. I like that it is solar charged-don't really need the time tick reception but it's a bonus. Put it on and forget it. One of my crew members wears one with the metal band.He works in the engine room so he's exposed more to diesel,oil and grease so a watch with a plastic band becomes brittle and eventually breaks.
This watch is an excellent product. I am an electrician and put this watch through a lot of abuse. I like the idea of setting it once and knowing that it will always read the correct time. The only complaint I have is the band is a little stiff, but I can deal with it. If I ever need a new one for whatever reason I will definitely buy another one of these.
Great Watch. Military issue watch. They choose this watch for a reason.
This watch is a pure class time keeper for the real mans world. I love this watch and I wear it for casual and play. I get so many compliments on the style.
The G shock line of watches are great! This is my second one and in my opinion the best so far with the outstandng toughness & funcitonality I've come too expect and even better looks. It's very easy to operate. But you must read the instuctions (which in fact are also easy to follow)! It being atomic & solar only enhances an already great watch.
Too complicated !
We could get the digital time set, but not the hands. We asked our teenage niece to figure it out and we concluded it had to be returned. The best we got was Denver time, however we live in California. It is very heavy for a wrist watch.
The "atomic time" concept was interesting to us, but too complicated to operate. We returned it to the store.
its great and tuff.
Great product. Easy to set up once you read the instructions. Very light weight compared to other watches.
The Walmart service is great. I received the watch in two days.
