Casio GW-9200-1ER Men's G-Shock Radio Controlled Watch
Casio GW-9200-1ER Men's G-Shock Radio Controlled Watch

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic G-Shock red-black colours, solar and radio sync works well., 27 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Daily beater. Can't go wrong. The barometer is a nice touch and can be used to tell if the weather's on its way down or not - the altimeter is only useful if calibrated. Doesn't need much charging. Has never showed anything but H charge.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eyecatching and works well., 27 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As others have said, it's a more mustard / JCB yellow than the sunshine yellow it looks like on the photos. Reverse LCD can be a little hard to read in poor light and the light doesn't illuminate the LCD, but does illuminate the hands very well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quick and easy way to charge your phone without fiddling with the waterproof plugs, 27 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As title really, what you'd expect. The software that lets you schedule events when docked / undocked is a nice touch. Would have been nice to have an audio connector as well but as the phone doesn't have one on its pogo pins.

3.0 out of 5 stars Will last a winter, 17 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
But for some reason they collect sweat and are a bit difficult to clean. End result being they STINK like smelly feet after a season. Also, the longer you have them, the less waterproof they are - by the time they'd done a winter they barely lasted 30 minutes before being completely sodden.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as waterproof as it thinks it is, 17 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Will get your hands wet in about an hour of constant exposure to wind & rain. Pretty warm though, and easy enough to operate zips / clips / whatever while still wearing them.

2.0 out of 5 stars It worked OK when it worked, 17 Sept. 2013

And then it broke. Piezo spark stopped working. You wouldn't want to rely on it. 5 more words to pad review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great tyres. Lasted 8000 miles., 17 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
And then I bought some more. Not a single puncture until they got worn down, after which I got two in short order - when I looked at them the protective belt was showing through in a a few places.

For reference the bike they were on was a hybrid that with panniers and tools weighs 44lb, I weigh about 12 stone.

Suitable for all weathers, you get some grip in snow, and have repelled broken glass (it's lovely in Salford) on a daily basis.

4.0 out of 5 stars Necessary for commuting, 17 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Slime Self Healing Tube - (Sports)
Has saved me from having to change a tube at the roadside one, and has failed me once. Depends on the location and diameter of the puncture I guess. Notwithstanding I still use these on my commuter and my road bike.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nexus 7 (first edition) fits nicely, 17 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Has probably protected my tablet from some damages it'd otherwise have had. Ideal for when the stewardess on the plane makes you put it in your bag because "it'll interfere with the aircraft's systems" (yeah right, if there was any chance of that they'd take them off you at the door).

4.0 out of 5 stars A collection of articles, 17 Sept. 2013

Some interesting, some less so, but at the price a worthwhile read if you're into cycling as a hobby rather than a sport, if you see what I mean.
