5.0 out of 5 stars In reality this watch has every feature most people would need., 15 Jan. 2013

This review is from: G-Shock GW-2310-1ER Men's Quartz Watch with Grey Dial - Digital Display and Black Resin Strap (Watch)
There are so many G-Shock's in Casio's range that it can be difficult to know which one to choose. I decided the best thing to do was write down a list of functions and features I actually wanted and then match it up with a watch.

For me the important features were:
Normal size.
Black or grey, no bright colours.
Rubber or plastic strap.
Easy to read LCD only display.
Solar power.
Radio time updating.

And the important functions were:
At least 3 alarms - this has 5.
Stop watch.
Count down timer.

This model fills my requirements exactly with the added benefit of World time. This wasn't vital for me but I have enjoyed 'playing' with it as it is very easy to use. I also like the fact that you can setup the auto illumination not only on or off but you can also adjust the time delay it is on for from 1.5 to 3 seconds.

Casio watches are renowned for coming with small, very thick manuals. Of course they are only thick because they are in several languages. If you visit Casio's website and enter module number 3195 you can download an English PDF manual for this watch which you can then view in large size on your PC. I have also downloaded a copy to my mobile phone and use Amazon's free Kindle reader software to read it, just zooming in on the area of interest.

Setting up the watch for the first time is fairly straight forward. Set your home time zone city, for me LON and then do a manual synchronisation with the atomic clock. If you can program a microwave to cook your baked beans then you will easily do this. Each of the functions are straight forward to use, read the manual for the first time but after that you should be OK as they all follow the same method.

When looking for a G-Shock I think you need to be realistic about eliminating functions you don't need, do you need tide graphs or need to know the phase of the moon? Do you need a 1/1000th second chronograph or will a 1/100th of a second do? Of course if you do need them then there will be a model that is just right for you but this is just right for me.The only negative thing I have to say about this watch is that I still have to make my own coffee!

Sorry Amazon cut the link to the manual but I am sure if you use your favourite search engine you will find it.
