Clothing? Right topic for a watch?

Anyway... I was looking for a Casio with digital compass and this is the cheapest price I can find. I'm sure it was £60 at Argos the other day and on eBay people are bidding above £40 so think it's a fairly good deal.

Casio SGW-100-1VEF Digital Quartz Multifunction Sports Watch with Compass, Thermometer, Stopwatch, 5 Alarms, Timer, Black Rubber Strap, Water Resistant to 200m.


Note, 4p cheaper at Amazon but obviously no store collection: amazon.co.uk/Cas…8-1

Oh, if anyone wants to check the manual for this its here: ftp.casio.co.jp/pub…pdf (if it doesnt work, go to Casio's website, support, and it's product 3157).

If anyone has the watch please let us know what it's like. Currently got one reserved for pickup tomorrow. Going by the reviews on Argos and Amazon it's pretty positive though, especially at this price.

Decent price for a compass watch

I have had this watch over 3 months now. Its a good watch, strap looks well made and will last a long time. Still no scratches on the front screen and the compass works quite well. Not sure how much more there is to say.

So after 24 hours of ownership I am very pleased with the watch. Looks a lot better than it does in the pictures. A number alarms can be set including one with snooze. The compass is neat and clear. I've not compared it with a proper compass yet but going by Google Maps it's pointing in the right direction which is enough for my needs. Strap seems strong enough for outdoor action and knocks. Only gripe I have so far is that the stopwatch only goes up to 59 minutes, 59.?? seconds. Would have preferred it to show hours but maybe that's the way with digital stopwatches these days. Anyway I can see the watch lasting a long time and being a steal at 35 quid.
