Casio F91W-1 Review

Casio F91W-1 reviewAs a company with cutting-edge electronic technology developed for pocket calculators, Casio entered this field confident that it could develop timepieces that would lead the market. They say passion is contagious and you can feel their passion in timepieces they make.

This passion and self-confidence is perfectly conveyed through CASIO F91W-1 Casual Sport Watch. As the name itself has the word “casual”, the designing is flawlessly relaxed. Nothing has been overdone. Simple Square shaped dial and blue outlining keeps it stylish. This being a digital watch looks modern and advanced and you witness similar looking gadgets in sci-fi films.

Quartz “Movement”

A mechanical watch gets its power from the gradual unwinding of a spring, called a “mainspring.” The wearer winds the spring using the crown on the side of the watch and this is passé. A quartz watch, as in this watch, is powered by electricity.

Quartz watches are much more accurate than mechanical ones. That’s because the oscillator of a quartz watch, the little piece of quartz, is a much steadier oscillator than the balance wheel of a mechanical watch.

Digital “Display”

Digital display in square shaped dial is ultra modern and displays time in 12 or 24 hour format. This gives an hourly time signal and provides daily alarm feature too.

The whole face of the dial of this Casio watch looks like a T.V screen as its vivid clear, digital and square shaped. As it’s touted as a casual watch, unplanned things are bound to happen with the watch while you have fun. But this offers you splash resistance for use when walking, jogging or running in the rain. So this won’t limit you within four walls of your room.

This can help you a lot if you are timing some sports as this has a stopwatch mode too with critical increments of 1/100th of a second. The Casio branding on the main display enhances the flaunt value and boosts the confidence in you of wearing a renowned brand.

Black “Band”

The black colored watch is rightly married with black colored band. It gives a perfect sporty look with a strength that you will cherish for years. Although some customers shared that it gets weaker after using for number of years. To each his own! You can make it work for longer run if you use it in the apt manner.
