Casio Baby-G BGA-230 Series

The popular Baby-G series is ana-DJ dial and the design and style of “aviators”. Pointed hands, a square electronic window and markings on the dial surface – all this is very similar to the aviation theme [instruments in the cockpit]. Of course, there is no functional subtext here, but the design can be considered stylish and innovative for Casio women. The protruding buttons have a ribbed surface for better contact and more comfortable pressing. The dial shows the time in two time zones – the second in a small analog window at 9 o’clock [for travelers]. Large hour markers and hands are designed for the most convenient readability of the analog zone. The watch has a stopwatch, timer, alarm clock, world clock and calendar.

Enjoy our Baby-G BGA-230 Watch Review

Let’s go over the functions. The main functional “core” takes on a small electronic window and an additional analog window at around 9 o’clock. It is not difficult to guess that the mini-arrow is responsible for simultaneously displaying time in another time zone. The main hands show home, mini window – time in another country. The feature is so common in Casio watches that I no longer find it unusual, but its usefulness should not be underestimated. Traveling is very welcome. Read Full Review →
