Casio Baby-G BGA-153 Series

Classic Women’s Baby-G in a durable “skin” and with a sporty design. The hour markers on the dial are made in the form of Roman numbers – digital watches can also be classics. Another indisputable advantage of such marks is the good readability of the analog zone. BGA-153 are created not only as a sports watch, but also fit the business style. On the polyurethane bezel, you can see metal inserts – an analogue of “rivets” on leather clothes. The digital component of the dial is represented by three separate round windows – for hours and minutes, dyal seconds and for indicating the operation of the clock. The steel bezel received an ion coating – so as not to be scratched. Basic functionality – timer, stopwatch, alarm clock, world clock and calendar.

+ price was very fair
+ reading the manual it took about 5 minutes to set up (time zone, date, time, and analog time)
+ the shock resistance, waterproofing
+ durable resin body
+ very elegant in person
+ the strap fits well

– the light (which is orange) only illuminates the hands
– the analog time and digital time are not synced (reading the watch forums it seems as though G-force watches have this feature, but the Baby-Gs do not)
– not solar-powered and atomic
– the battery didn’t even last a year
