Best small utility women's watch on the market
Great watch!! I could not live without it. I have owned several over the past 21 years. I have gone through 4 of them. I use the timer on it all the time. Other features occasionally. They last about 4 to 8 years then they die. I have had this watch since it was made by Timex, now Casio (same watch). Fearing it was going to be discontinued I bought 3 at the same time, this time, so that I will have a working one until my death. They don't last forever but they are a small utility watch that keeps excellent time. I am lost without one. My only complaint is it doesn't glow in the dark otherwise 5 stars.. Also my old eyes are having difficulty seeing the timer in low light. A date would be nice too. No date on it. Otherwise it is a great watch for my needs. Small, compact with great features (timer, stop watch & alarm). The battery lasts about 2-1/2 to 3 years. The ones that comes with a metal watch band are best. The plastic bands are lousy. They wear out fairly fast. Ugly too. This model comes with a metal band. Just a great great watch. Buy it!!! You will never wear your old very expensive watch again. This one is far too useful!!!! I am totally dependant on it, just like my computer.

Welllllll I don't know what I was expecting for the price but, yes, despite the other reviewers' cautionary tales about the watch, I still thought it'd be bigger when I opened the packaging. Keep in mind that I am like 5' tall. It looked like a toy watch in the box (flimsy packaging, still, item came in unscathed) but after wearing it and twirling around in the mirror a couple of times, I decided to keep it instead of getting larger models. It's very dainty and compliments my petite stature.
On another note, the clasp is rather unpleasant to work and adjust. Just a note.

Love this watch!
I have lost count of the number of watches of this type that I've had over the years. Unfortunately, they aren't indestructible, though. In the past, I used the alarm as my only alarm clock. But the countdown timer is the reason I keep wearing these watches. When I first got one I used it to remind me to check a reaction in the lab. Now I use it to time my breaks and lunches at work. I only wish it came with a twist-o-flex type band and a more easily replaceable battery.

The watch is a bit smaller than I expected but I actually really like the small size! When I wear bulky watches I always got wrist pain so would wear the watch upside down but that's not a problem at all with this watch and I can wear it normally. I love how classy looking this watch is as well.
I love the countdown timer feature on the watch! It's really convenient. The timer is located on the main screen of the watch where the time is shown and all it takes is a single click of the button to set the timer and it automatically sets for 1 min. each click adds more time going from 1, 3, 5, 10, 15, 20, 30 and then it resets to 0 so it's easy to turn off if you accidentally set it. Some reviewers have complained that the sound of the alarm isn't loud enough but I thought it was fairly loud.
The only thing I wish this watch had was a light, but I knew it didn't have one before buying it so that's ok. So far it has been a great watch and is very comfortable and it was easy to adjust the size of the band as well. The last test is wether it lasts in the water while swimming. It's supposed to be water resistant up to 10m so should be fine swimming in the pool.

The wife absolutely loves it.
Got this for my wife, she got her first one over thirty years ago as a sweet sixteen birthday gift. She likes it so well she won't wear anything else. Likes the digital display. The battery is fairly hard to change so she just gets another one every few years, the price is great. It seems that digital watches are getting less common as they were years ago. I'm just happy I can still get them and that they last so long.

Love this watch!
This is a great watch. I have slender wrists and not only can you adjust the band easily, my wrist is not completely covered by a giant watch face. It is a classic design and was easy to program. The clasp is great, there is no way that this sucker is going to fall off! Would purchase again!

Great Watch, Must-Have for Teachers
LOVE this watch. The aesthetic is nice, it's a perfect size, it's comfortable, easy to adjust, feels well-made, easy to program, and the timer functions are AWESOME for my job as a teacher. I use the timer multiple times a day and has eliminated my searching around the classroom for a timer. Loooooving it.

Girlfriend Loves It!
I purchased this for my girlfriend, who wanted a trendy, but not too flashy watch. This is what I gifted to her! She loves it and wears it every day. She actually gets compliments all the time for wearing it and people always ask her where she got it from. Plus points for me I guess. Great quality from Casio and the battery is still going strong.
The only thing you have to realize when purchasing this watch is that there is no light function on it! So if you're trying to view the time in the dark, good luck with that; better have a flashlight or your phone to help you out.

I like this watch, BUT...
The watch is lightweight, fairly simple to use and set. It's the same typical setup as other watches, so that made it nice and easy to set. I like the sleek look and low height off my wrist. The metal band dresses it up without losing the functions that I've only been able to previously find in non-metal bands. I do wish it had the date displayed on the face with the time, but if that was available, then I suppose the face would be bigger. The only complaint I have is that band is very generous in length, and the instructions do not include information on adjusting the watchband, and removing the excess links. I have yet to figure out how to remove the excess band.
Update. Although I like the sleekness and ease of adjusting the settings, alarms, etc., and I do like the fact that it's got a clasp, and doesn't stretch over your hand and onto your writs. What I don't like is that this clasp doesn't stay closed. I'm always having to re-attach the clasp. Thankfully, the watch is heavy enough that I recognize when it comes undone, or I'd have lost it a hundred times already. (This may be an exaggeration, or an understatement...but it's the truth. It constantly comes undone.) By the way, I was never able to remove any of the links.

This was an amazing watch. I loved that it was a digital watch with links instead of a leather or plastic band. I wasn't scared to wash my hands or get my hands wet while wearing the watch. It was the perfect size for my wrist. I could wear it to the office or during a night out.
I'm giving it 4 stars because when I took it off and put it in my purse, I discovered that the face was cracked after having it in my purse for an hour. I expected it to be a little bit tougher than that considering it's Casio. I would buy again because I love this watch.
