To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This watch is awesome I absolutely love it! The only problem I have is it is solar powered and I cannot get the battery to register above medium level. I have read and watched some reviews on YouTube that said you have to be patient and set it out in the sun for several days. I've had this watch for over a week I have set it in the sun for a minimum of 4 hours every day so far it will not get above medium other than that the watch is amazing I may have to get a new battery I'm not sure. It doesn't seem to affect the function of the watch but it makes me nervous that the battery will not register full or high.
Es un reloj que se ve más grande en las fotos que ya tenerlo, soy de muñeca grande, se me ve de tamaño normal, si eres delgado si se te verá bien, la correa al tacto es suave, sus 5 alarmas son funcionales, no me gusto su backlight porque es muy tenue, es difícil comprender su barómetro, en general es un buen reloj
Automatic Swiss watches require body movement and winding. They are fancy, beautiful pieces of art/jewelry and I love them.
This watch however is super light on the wrist and has a perpetual calendar/atomic clock sync. The solar charging function means you don’t have to worry about changing a battery and the atomic sync means you don’t have to worry about changing the date, correct in the date, or correcting the time periodically or monthly. Being radio controlled means the accuracy of the watch is reliable for perpetuity.
I bought this watch and loved it. I tried it on and was very very happy. When I tested the alarm, I realized that after being up a long time and out in the woods, the alarm would probably not wake me. It is not loud. In addition to being low volume, it ceases sounding after 10 seconds. If you try to rely on this to wake up in the morning, it might not work for you. I believe the battery would require much more energy to make a decent alarm and because of this you might not find a very good alarm function on a solar powered watch anywhere.
If you’re not that concerned about the alarm, the rest of the watch is absolutely wonderful and I recommend.
The blue face and band make this an attractive watch. It has several great features, including the triple sensors (altimeter/barometer, compass, and thermometer), solar charging, Multiband 6 atomic time keeping, and Smart Access pull-out crown for setting functions. I have small wrists (5.5" circumference), the band fit well, and the case size was not too large for me. The silicone band is quite comfortable. The hands are "bold" and easy to read for the time, as is the smaller dial that indicates which function is active. The downside: The digital read-out window is of the "negative" type, meaning that it has lighter chararcters against a black background. It is nearly impossible to read unless you are in very good light and it is illuminated at the correct angle. Furthermore, the illuminator is not at all bright, so trying to see the LCD panel in the dark is practically impossible. Plus, the luminescent hands and numerals fade rather quickly in the dark. I have tried a few Casio watches with the negative LCD panel, and I have returned all of them. Now when I look at Casio's, I first look for analog/digital and then the type of LCD panel and stick with ones with dark characters against a light background. I suggest Casio ditch the negative LCD's. But that having been said, if you will not rely on the LCD panel very often or at all, this is an attractive watch with a load of convenient features, but many of them depend on being able to read the LCD panel. It can be done if the lighting is right, but it's not easy otherwise.

I have small wrists (5.5" circumference), and the case size was not too large for me. I prefer a case in the 45-48mm range as opposed to 51mm or larger.

Excellent watch, easy to read and packing a lot of features. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is the belt. More specifically the belt loop. Because of the belt being so thin, malleable and soft(which is nice to have!)but the loop being too large , the end of the belt is always coming out of the loop or, even worse, catching on things( clothes, objects or your skin), making this very uncomfortable having to keep adjusting it during the day multiple times. An easy fix would be to add an extra loop but because the belt is a specific blue color it is hard to find, unless you would buy a replacement belt altogether, which is unnecessary expense, in my opinion, when you buy a $300 watch. I opted for the version PRG 650Y instead who is identical, with better lighting but without radio band.
The product is perfect, Its a watch with lots of posseblitiesso the manaal is extended bbut at the end you have a watch with fulfill your wishes. One super inportant thing is that the nightlights special on this watch is perfect Bert Geuze
Its a fairly decent make from Casio, and have yet to see any battery depletion on any solar models since 10 plus years of collection. I don’t like the negative LCD. Occasionally it doesn’t sync to atomic signal, which is strange since similar Casio(s) next to it do sync every night. Amazon did send me this as new but I noticed it was used, since there were alarms already set and few other wear marks, and had to press them for some discount or I would return and buy from another place, finally discounted to a likable number and I kept it.
