REVIEW: Casio Baby G BLX100-7B

Posted on 17 November 2011 by Patrick Kansa

Today, we’re going to take a look at a watch from Casio’s Baby G line, the BLX100-7B.  As this line, and this particular model, is most definitely not aimed at men, I’ve enlisted the help of my lovely wife to review this watch.

Casio’s new giant G-Shock may be right for football players, you

Posted on 09 August 2010 by John Biggs

In order to grab the coveted Dudes-Who-Look-Like-Turtle-from-Entourage market, Casio is launching a bigger G-Shock, a massive, wristband-like addition to the G-Shock line that is, in Casio’s own words, designed for “sports players like basketball players.”

Review: Casio GA-100 G-Shock

Posted on 30 April 2010 by John Biggs


The G-Shock is a tough watch to love. They’re Casio’s answer to the Timex Ironman and, while they’re quite rugged, the line has drifted towards Swatch-esque fashion models. Well, I’m glad to report the GA-100 brings it all back home with a world-time feature and stop watch that brings to mind the Citizen Skyhawk series with its dedicated readout windows below bold hands.

The so-called “Three Eye” design (I guess the three dials – one analog and two digital – are the eyes? Whatever) and huge hands make this thing quite readable. The watch is light – about 70g – the watch is surprisingly cheap at about $99. It has a 1/1000th of a second stop watch, countdown timer, 29 time zones, and four alarms. It is shock and magnetically resistant, so you can wear it in the hatch in Lost.

Casio releases the PAW5000-1 Pathfinder Watch

Posted on 30 April 2010 by John Biggs


Call me a sucker for a Pathfinder, Casio’s monstrous sports watches designed for hiking, camping, and cage fighting. The PAW5000 uses the same quad-sensor movement as the other Pathfinder models including a digital compass, altimeter, barometer, and thermometer.

Instead of an LCD display, however, the central seconds hand acts as the main indicator, offering a physical view of the various read-outs and cleaning up the face considerably.

The watch will be available in May for $450.

Casio Puzzle watch: $89 of retro-flashback

Posted on 30 September 2009 by John Biggs

It may not do much – it’s basically a feature watch with stopwatch, alarm, and 24-hour time – but it’s nicely designed. This Casio, called the Poptone Cubic Puzzle Watch, comes in blue or black and has buttons stacked up, Tetris-style, on the bottom.

Casio GS-1200 to use LEDs to tweak analog hand position

Posted on 01 August 2008 by John Biggs


A new Casio movement for the GS-1200 Tough line – a radio controlled watch model built for shock resistance – has internal LEDs that calibrate the analog hands of the watch.

The movement has a structure where the gears for second, minute and hour are sandwiched between the LED and the phototransistor. With this setup, it is possible to detect the positions of three gears by one sensor. The LED emits light 16 times a second to check the positions of the 300mum diameter detection holes that are formed on the gears.

Most mechanical analog watches eventually slip out of alignment due to the internal motor. Buy adding the tiny LED and photosensor, the watch processor can tell exactly where the hands are on the face and ensure that the user won’t have to recalibrate the watch later.

This is similar to the methods used to sense positions in the old-time mechanical mice.
