Japan’s Casio Company has been producing high quality electronics and other products for just over 65 years now. That means if there was a grocery store for international corporations it would get a senior citizen’s discount.
Despite the company’s age, however, it is still known today for making amazing products that continue to rocket this company into the future. Every teenager today knows they always want to have the next newest thing. The designers at Casio know this and that is why they make products that are always one step ahead of the competition.
In the beginning Casio was best known for producing some of the world’s first calculators. As the years went by Casio began to move into the business of electronic instruments. Today they are still renowned the world over for their incredible Casio keyboards.
In the 1980s Casio also moved into producing high quality wristwatches. Today they still make fashionable and functional wristwatches that are perfect for people of all ages.
Casio now has moved even beyond all of these products and makes products of the future. These include high quality digital cameras and the cell phones of tomorrow. But with these new innovations Casio still strives to produce wristwatches that appeal to teens and adults alike. Here are a few examples of Casio watches that the younger generation will love.
Casio Men’s Pathfinder Special Edition Go-Green Solar Quartz Digital Rubber Strap Watch
One of the features Casio is most known for is bright and exciting color patterns on their watches. And what better way to stylize your look than with a colorful watch that also sends an inspiring message? Show off both your sense of style and your commitment to the environment with the Casio Men’s Pathfinder Special Edition Go-Green Solar Quartz Digital Rubber Strap Watch.
This timepiece is all about going green, not just in looks but also in action. The figurative “green” aspect of this watch refers to the solar powered Pathfinder technology. This uses a solar power cell that collects both direct and indirect light. That means you don’t have to be standing right out in the sun to power this timepiece.
The solar cell in this watch powers a rechargeable battery, which then operates the reliable quartz movement. If you are away from a light source for an extended period of time (like if you’ve kept the watch in a drawer for a while) it will go into power save mode.
Another green feature of this watch is the long lasting battery. Of course it recharges so you don’t have to worry about buying a new one any time soon, but batteries still wear out even if they are rechargeable. The nice thing about this battery, however, is that it will last for about 20 to 30 years!
As far as the aesthetic features of this watch go, it is most easily recognized by its bright green rubber case. It also has a mix of green and silver-tone function pushers to add contrast to the case. The auto EL backlit dial is protected by a hard mineral crystal, and it features a wide range of convenient functions. These include things like a power reserve bar, an alarm, a function for dual time zones, a countdown timer, a chronograph, and indications of the day, week, and month.
Amazingly, that isn’t all of the features of this incredible little watch. It even has a barometer, an altimeter, a digital compass, and even a thermometer! This watch isn’t just green; it is an incredible technological leap into the future. Strap yourself into a vision of a better tomorrow with the Pathfinder Go-Green Edition.
Casio Women’s Runner Series Digital Quartz Multifunction Green Rubber Strap Watch
In today’s modern age many teens might think they don’t need a wristwatch because they can just look at their cell phone. But joggers know it is much easier to have a watch on their wrist to keep track of not just the time, but all sorts of other measurements while out for a jog.
The Runner Series by Casio designs watches that aren’t just great for a jog, but look fashionable and cool as well. This particular timepiece has all sorts of functions that will benefit runners and non-runners alike. One of the first features that runners might enjoy is a countdown timer. You can set this for times ranging from one minute for a quick spring to 100 hours for an epic marathon. It also has a 1/100 second stopwatch, pace signal, measuring capacity, memory capacity, and is pre-programmed with a full calendar all the way to the year 2039.
