Requires more dexterity that I have.
on 3 January 2016
I've worn Casio wrist watches for more years than I care to remember and for value and accuracy I think they are excellent.
Unfortunately I can't get on with the STR-300C-1VER. It's got all the functions I want and I'm sure it is accurate, but I can't reliably operate the start/stop and lap/split buttons. The controls are built into the watch bezel, each covered by largish plastic mouldings. There's nothing to tell you, by feel, that you are pressing the right area.
With the watch off my wrist, looking at what I'm doing in a well lit room, I get a 70% success rate starting and stopping the stop watch.
While riding a bike, in the dark, with the watch on my wrist, partly under my cycling gear, my success rate falls to around 0%.
It needs some sort of tactile indication that you are groping about in the right area and a much more positive action for my big clumsy hands.....
