All the functions of a G-Shock (and then some...) without the price tag.
The Casio DBE30 is a robust, lightweight solar powered watch with enough functions to melt your face. The fact that it has an indicator showing the remaining charge in the battery is fantastic. All the functions are reliable and Casio are becoming renowned for their better quality in timepieces and in turn, they are lasting longer. This watch is a reasonable size and the display is clear and easy to read. The backlight has the same "semi-auto" options that the G-Shock series can have, where you can set it to automatically light up when you tilt the watch a certain angle, the same angle you would tilt the watch to look at the time. Very clever, also very handy if your say, riding a motorbike or driving at night or just couldn't be bothered or weren't able to push the button using your other hand. The data bank hold plenty of names and numbers, a feature Casio seem to be pretty unique to (minus some vintage Seiko's) and the world timer shows more countries than your ever going to need. All in all a great watch with heaps of features, in some cases more than the pricy models Casio has available. If you need a watch that, despite the heaps of functions, is solar powered and so simple to use your mother could work it all out, this ones worth a decent look. Pros-- great on a budget, reliable, no battery changes EVER, easy to read, water resist enough that you never need to take it off. Cons-- a little plasticky for my liking, could be easy to scratch the face as there's no bezel.Read full review
Arrived quickly. Works nicely
It has an awesome auto-light feature that turns on the light when you look at it, and the solar pannels mean I don't have to worry about using up the battery. Good watch
The king of watches
This is a great piece of versatile and practical technology...and it's "as cheap as chips" there is STILL no other watch on the market that can beat it!
