Easy to set up (using the manual), easy to learn the functions and very pleasing on the eye. I wish i could have justified the extra cost of the titanium version but i am still very pleased with this one.
Other reviewers of the Titanium version have questioned the battery life. The manual is quite clear about managing battery life and if you follow this (loosely) then you will have no problem. I can imagine if you sit in a darkened room all day and night, playing with all the functions, you may struggle but it is supposed to be an outdoors watch and as such, recharges whilst in use. But like i say, i have had no problem with day to day use and battery life - i don't take the watch off to charge it during the day and it sits in a darkened room overnight.
So overall, very functional (as long as you read the manual once), very easy on the eye - great buy!
It is self sufficient in that it is solar powered so no worries about batteries running out. Big plus.
I personally like the barometer graphing function which can be set to be on permanent display. The shape of the graph gives a good indication of improving or deteriorating weather - this is one of my favourite features of the watch. It's a mini weather station.
I'm not so bothered about the altimeter, or thermometer. I guess if you were camping and took the watch off it might be interesting to take the temperature.
The compass is really a good feature, if you got stuck out in fog walking it might be a real help to get you back to a road or whatever. You won't use it as main navigation device for serious orienteering but it is neat. Also if you got lost in a city, it would at least re-orient you.
The hands are not luminous, which is probably the only minus for me, I am used to luminous hands.
But a neat feature is that it will turn on the light if you tilt it to your face. This only happens if it detects it is dark, so again a handy feature when driving at night etc. Cleverly it detects that it is facing you, and not hanging down by your side before it switches on the light.
It has all the other functions such as stopwatch, countdown, world time.
It is surprisingly light and comfy to wear.
I personally chose this watch because of the analogue hands, this gives it a certain amount of gravitas which pure lcd could never have.
Another neat thing is that it has self aligning hands so they always point spot on correct, eg the second hand is always pointing to the tick marks round the edge.
I think it is a lot of watch for not much money. Hey compare it to the price of a Rolex, it's less than a bezel insert for one of those.
I went for the rubber strap version of this watch, as last time when buying the digital version I bought the Titanium version. The Titanium straps are not robust and infact in 7 years I got through 4 titanium straps that have to be fitted by Casio at a cost.
The rubber strap is far better and will definately not pop open like the titanium strap. As for the functions, it has already been said on previous reviews. Everything you require for a hiker like myself. I particularly like the radio controlled time setting. Very easy to use and keep the watch accurate. No more battery changes is also a strong selling point and the watch goes to sleep at night. When I say sleep, I mean the second hand stops and the digital bit switches off to save you power as it is solar powered. Unless of course you are wearing it and then it does not sleep.
A very comprehensive watch, albeit expensive, but compare it to a Suunto and IMO it far outclasses the best of them.
as for the watch itself, yes, as said elsewhere, a very good watch. Does what it says it does. its worth reading the manual, about 100 pages in English, that said many of the simpler functions are intuitive. the small screen is very hard to read, especially if you are reading barometric trends, but other than it looks and feels very cool.
