    I like a watch with analog hands, but with digital features. Since they are hard to find these days, I ordered this one.

    The good:

    The LCD portion of the watch is very easy to read.

    The watch seems accurate so far.

    The analog portion of the watch is controlled by the digital, so it should stay as accurate as the digital portion. (The minute hand clicks 1/3 of a minute every 20 seconds.)

    The bad:

    The digital portion of the watch has so many features that it is difficult to use. Do I really need three alarms? The watch can store 30 phone numbers in it. Ten years ago that could have been useful, but now I store all my numbers in my cell phone. To make use of all these features, I’d need to carry around the instruction manual (which is 100 pages long, if you include the English, Spanish, and warrantee–although the pages are small).

    The watch has no second hand. Sometimes I like to use one to time short things. Yes, there is a built in stop watch, but it is as hard to use as all the other digital features. (But my guess is the lack of a second hand will extend battery life.)

    The band grabbed the hair on my arm. I had to go out and buy a twist-o-flex.

    There is no stem to set the analog portion of the watch. Instead, you go into handsetting mode in the digital portion, and push a button and wait for the hands to move forward to the correct time. To set the hands forward 11 hours to go off of DST took several minutes.

    The watch has a DST setting. It sets the digital portion of the watch ahead an hour. But it doesn’t automatically go back after DST ends. So you still need to adjust the watch. It’s not much easier than just resetting the time. And it doesn’t affect the analog hands.

    The watch has a world time feature. You can quickly find out the time in Bangkok. But don’t expect to use this on your vacation to keep track of the local time. Press any button and you will return to your local time.

    The ugly:

    The analog hands are hard to read. They are a light color on a white background.

    There is too much writing on the watch. Not only is it ugly, but it is easy to confuse the “10 YEAR BATTERY” label next to the 3 for a minute hand.

    There is a backlight for the analog portion at the push of a button. But it doesn’t give quite enough light, and it goes out after a second even if you leave the button pushed in. There is no backlight for the digital portion.

    It says 10 year battery. If it is true, this watch is worth much more. Multiply 3 watch battery changes (what most watches will need in 10 years) times 5 dollars per. I’m on 2 years now and I’m happy with this watch. The crystal scratches easy, but a little car polish makes it like new again. I’m swimming with it often and finding that it holds up well. For a metal band watch, it is light and sometimes one doesn’t realize its on. I wish the light was blue tone like my old Casio (this one’s light has an orange glow) but that’s not a reason not to give it 5 stars. Unlike the other Casio I reviewed, the links on this metal band are easy to remove.

    Good watch, but plastic part makes it look cheap, July 31, 2005

    The watch is very good. The only complaint I have is that the gray ring just around the outside face of the watch makes it look cheap. I don’t know why Casio included it. I now wear the Casio Edifice Blue EFA110D-2AV instead, which has the exact same functionality but does not have plastic pieces on the front and thus looks much better.
