    This is a brand new watch from Casio in their G-Shock line. It’s an upgrade to the MTG900DA-8v. The biggest differences are the “Time Memo” function in the older version is replaced with a much more functional and desirable “Countdown Timer,” and this new version sports a 6-band receiver in place of the older single band receiver. This means the watch can receive signals from all over the world rather than just in the US making this version the best choice from world travelers.

    As a note to those reading some of the negative, battery related reviews on the old version, PLEASE READ the manual. It has plenty of relevant and useful info related to how the battery is charged, how it’s drained, how long it takes to charge under various types of light, etc. Turning on every possible function will, of course, drain the battery faster. Then putting in under a shirt or coat sleeve will not allow it to charge. Even partially covered, some or all of the solar cells may be blocked. The dark areas around the face are actually 6 solar cells; 2each at the top/bottom and one each on the sides. They are all required to properly charge the battery.

    When I received this watch, it was fully charged and last sync was on 12/24. I got it on Jan. 2 and it was about 2 seconds fast. That means it gained about 2 seconds/week which is less than the tolerance of 15 seconds/month if not synced for that long. It attempts to sync up to 6 times/day in all but China where it will try 5 times/day. In any case, once it successfully syncs for the day, it will not do it again until the next day. I followed the clear instructions to manually sync it rather than wait for the next cycle and it got it to within a fraction of a second. The sync cycle can take 2 to 7 minutes and syncs both time and date data, if available from the sync source. In the USA, both are provided.

    The band is the standard folder clasp style and comes large enough to fit most guys. I removed 3 links to fit my wrist. There’s a clasp adjustment within a half link for variations is weather and swelling/contraction of the wrist. Nice feature. The clasp overall seems secure and requires depressing buttons on either side so it’s not likely to just come undone during normal activities.

    Some people have complained about some plastic parts on the case. The base structure is metal and the plastic is there. However, it appears that the plastic is strategically placed so as to help protect the case and face from shock or other bumps/bruises. Also, the crystal is recessed significantly so it would be protected from the typical brushing against anything that might scratch it. This is an important point considering it’s got solar collection cells in there that must not be obstructed.

    The warranty is one year. I’d hoped it would be longer for a watch of this price. However, my experience with Casio products has been good enough for me to buy without worrying too much.

    Overall, I’m really pleased and hope to have this watch for many years. My old Timex broke awhile back and I’ve been searching for something worthy of my time and money. I think I found it.

    This review is from: Casio Men’s MTGM900DA-8 G-Shock Stainless Steel Multi-Function Digital Watch (Watch)

    I like several of the features of this watch:

    1. Solar-powered
    2. G-Shock
    3. Syncs to atomic clocks around the world
    4. Large, easy to see numbers
    5. Construction feels solid
    6. Several reviewers commented on the difficulty of sizing the watch band. I was able to do this easily with a small eyeglass repair screwdriver and magnifying glass.
    7. I have never posted an online review before, but am so happy with this watch that I was inspired to.

    The only thing that could make this watch better is a built-in flashlight with built-in magnifying glass (like iBeam watches have, which are my other favorite watches).
