4.0 out of 5 stars a great bargain, 5 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Casio WVA-470DE-1AVEF Radio Controlled Analog and Digital Quartz Multifunction Watch with Chronograph, Time Zones, 3 Alarms, Solar Power and Steel Bracelet (Watch)
You really have to look at different websites to see the differences in price. There aren't many, and it turns out that Amazon was the cheaspest. Arrived in good time and was was working straight out of the box, but was exactly one hour fast. This is explained by the fact that it is updated daily by a radio signal and my signal must have been coming from outside the UK. However, once I set my place of use ( London UK) into the system, it magically corrected itself automatically and now will be always correct appartently. Fortunately this is not too difficult to do, even for me. I am very happy with it so far.
Very minor niggles:
- I am a retired pensioner and I have a slight problem with the manual which appears to be very comprehensive but which appears to be the size of a postage stamp. My poor eyes. However my daughter has no problem.
- I searched for backlit faces so I could see it in the dark. Be aware that this watch is backlit but this only includes the small digital frame set into the face. The face itself is not backlit. Perhaps this is an unreasonable request for a solar powered watch of this price, otherwise it would quickly run down, but just be aware that if you really need an illuminated dial, this is not it.
- solar power is a great idea but given the low light intensity in winter here and the fact that most people wear a watch with the face partly hidden under their sleeves, you may have to take it off and put it in the window frequently to stop it running down. Applies to all solar watches I think, so not a specific criticism.
