I have used other Casio products over the years and have very pleased with them.
This particular watch has new features that will come useful during my trip to South America in October.
most important is the fact that the battery is long lasting and re-chargeable plus the other three major features.
But most important was the great service provided by the two ladies the one who sold the watch and provided much information about the product and the reason to buy it versus other watches. and the second one who was also very professional and helpful.
Good products and great service should make Sears the only place to shop!
I am very pleased with the build quality and the overall appearance of this watch. As for durability I will have to wait and see, but I expect it to be as good as my other Casio watches.
