Anyone who has ever owned Casio Watches knows they offer superior quality and durability. They also look great and are one of the most stylish watches a person can own. The Casio Company has been offering high-quality watches for decades and when people choose Casio, they know they are getting a top-notch timepiece.
The Casio Company was established in 1946 by engineer Tadao Kashio. Originally, the company focused on hands-free cigarette pipes that enabled smokers to smoke a cigarette down to the very end. A few years later, Kashio began working on developing calculators. It was in the 1980s that the company created its first wristwatch and around the same time began selling calculator watches. They were one of the first companies that created watches capable of showing times in different time zones, as well as altitude, GPS position and temperature. Today, Casio continues to make high-quality, cutting-edge watches, as well as cameras and other electronic equipment.
The Casio G Shock is one of the most popular watches sold by the brand. The Baby G is a version of Casio’s classic G-Shock watch. The G-Shock hit the market in 1983 and was billed as the world’s toughest watch. It featured a triple protection design for the case, module and parts. The G-Shock watches were intended to be worn during athletic activities, by military personnel and during outdoor adventure activities. They are developed using the triple 10 toughness technology. They can sustain 10kg of weight being put on top of them, they can be dropped from a 10 meter height and have a ten year life span. Not to mention being 200 meters water resistant.
The Baby G Model was released in 1991 and offered the same durability with added style. The watches are targeted to women and offer a slightly more feminine look. Some have an overall industrial appearance while others are smooth, stylish and elegant. Baby G’s are categorised by styles as well by color and come in pink, blue, black, white, yellow, green and silver.
The Casio Protrek is the ultimate in outdoor adventure watches. It contains a high-capacity solar power system that combines a super-sensitive solar panel to generate power even under low fluorescent light. It also features a high-capacity rechargeable battery. The watch never needs a battery change. The Protreck Bearing Sensor let you locate yourself on an area map by plotting lines from two fixed distant landmarks. The watch also offers a barometric pressure display. This graphic display of is taken at regular intervals and reveals the pressure trend at a glance.
When the pressure is falling, bad weather is on the way. As the pressure rises, weather is likely to improve. This enables you to make predictions about upcoming weather conditions, which can be a lifesaver when you are out in the elements. These Casio watches also displays temperature and altitude, as well as a tide graph. Anglers love the Protek because it helps them predict the changing ocean tides, known to offer the most successful fishing opportunities.
Casio watches are reliable products that offer durability and style. A Casio watch does more than just tell you what time it is. In extreme cases, the watch could actually save your life. Even if you are not an outdoorsman or someone who seeks adventure, Casio watches have something to offer. Their industrial look is trendy and stylish. If you are shopping for a new watch and you want something that will last a long time, consider buying a Casio.
Thank you for reading my article. Having quite a few years of experience under my belt I try to share as much information as possible with those around me. Casio watches are a great product and in my opinion very under valued (just don’t tell their sales department!).
Unfortunately you will find lots of sellers out there that will be happy to sell you a “Casio watch” cheap, but it will come with a catch – it will be a fake! Unfortunately, you will only find out when it arrives by which time it will be too late.
