[link] Smash it into walls with my gangly arms, toss it into the bottom of my bag, surf consistently, it's been indestructible for me so far. Super nice to know what time it is out on the water. And if i break it... 12 bucks and I get a new one.
I got a cheap Casio 4 months ago and it's still working fine and only showing minor wear.
Is that watch the Casio W800H-1AV? If so, how do you like it? Considering buying one. Link of watch I think it is: [link]
Would this be an okay watch for BMT?
How is tech school for 4A2X1? How difficult is it for someone with not much more than just some basic computer knowledge?
Might not be what your looking for but thought I'd post it.
I use a Casio W800H-1AV Sports Watch when I work and I teach and swim with it all the time. It's water resistant to 100m. I've been to the bottom of some really deep pools and been in the water longer then most people (hours and hours) and never had a problem.
The watch has a stopwatch feature which might be what your looking for. It tends to get scratched a bit but I love it.
You can pick it up for $12.19 right now off amazon.
I just have this for timing laps. [link]
I think the only reason I'd consider anything more expensive is if it tracked HR.
I wear a Casio W800H-1AV all the time when I guard and teach. It has a stopwatch which I've used to time myself doing lap swims. I`ve swam tons of lengths, dove down 5m, and spent hours in the water with it without any problem.
It's $12.19 right now on amazon
It's 100m Water Resistant, the only thing to note is that the watch face can get scratched pretty easy. But it's really easy to use and it's cheap.
Absolutely love it and highly recommend it. Sometimes I don't know what I'd do without it.
Hello! I'm fairly new to getting watches, and I have a budget of only $100 for now. I am currently in university, and I want to wear this watch whenever I go anywhere nice. this can include a nice place to eat, a meeting with a professional, etc. I am planning on getting a Casio W800H-1AV for the everyday watch that I need.
I like metal straps (stainless steel, silver, probably not gold though since it scratches off easily), but I heard that for my budget it is probably not a good idea. I have been doing a lot of looking around, but I don't know what to get.
Extra Info: After I graduate college, my parents are planning on getting me a more expensive watch, so I will not have this watch that I'm buying for over 5 years.
Does anyone know how feasible it would be to put a NATO strap on a Casio W800H-1AV?
Lol, I can't even justify it myself, but I think it'd be funny to wear. Most people would probably just think I was a weirdo though. I do need a watch for work with a stop watch. I don't think I would ever use a calculator on a watch, I like my TI-84 too much.
What about this Casio?
I only can do this if I have a time how long I want to endure the pain. Otherwise I just quit. That's why I love my Casio Watch
I've got this one for $12. Guess you can call me a big spender
I only ever wear a watch when I go surfing, but I recently kept forgetting to take it off for a few days and actually kinda like the convenience. It was a cheap Casio, so now I'm looking for something that serves the same purpose but looks nicer for daily wear.
Some of my main criteria:
-somewhat slim form factor. Something I don't need to take off to put a shirt on, for instance. I don't want a behemoth on my arm.
-let's say $100 or under. Cheaper is better. I don't want to have to worry about keeping it safe. I could be convinced to spend more if it's truly durable.
-analog or digital are fine. I don't really need all the functions that my Casio has
This is my current watch, I have no desire for a huge faced watch, I don't want it to be metal. I am looking for an upgrade for this watch, functional, digital display, durable, reliable and with a nice simple clean look. Date and time are really the only features that are required, a stop watch feature would be a bonus.
I'm sure this isn't a watch that most here enjoy but I love my current watch, I just want to upgrade it in style and durability. Sometimes this watch will reset and I don't know why, I suspect it gets bumped and or it's just low quality.
Yupp, I got one of these this year and the thing is indestructible. Can't beat the price.
If you're looking for something with GPS to record your sessions tho, not your guy.
This one's pretty cheap and will last a while. I have been using mine for all SATs/acts/AP.
A $14 Casio. Which I'm pretty sure was only like $10 or so when I bought mine.
Been faithful for several years now. 10 year battery. Has the date always displaying which is nice because I never know the date.
I also like I can just dip it in oxivir or whatever to get it clean without worrying about killing it.
G-Shock 5600GW. The entry level G-Shock and exactly at your budget. I own one. It's awesome.
Or this, a lot of watch for the money. Twelve bucks, damn. Casio Men's Classic W800H-1AV Sport Watch with Black Resin Band [link]
