Digital female Baby-G in a square body of flowers of a sea wave. The electronic format of the dial and the square shape contribute to the most convenient reading of data in any conditions. The watch was created for lovers of boat trips with a board – this is evidenced not only by the color design of the case with the silhouette of a surfer board on the dial, but also by the presence of an ebb / flow sensor and display of the phases of the moon. The wave height at the current location and at the current time is displayed in the upper part of the display as separate zones. The water resistance of the BLX-560 is 200 meters, which is enough for any water procedures [swimming and diving]. The watch uses a 24-hour stopwatch, a timer with an auto-repeat, an alarm clock, world clock and a calendar as basic functionality.

Official Marketing Focus from Casio
From the G-LIDE sport lineup of BABY-G models with Tide Graph capabilities come new retro surf inspired models.
These watches feature Tide Graph, a feature that lets you look up tide information for a variety of surf points. The height of the high tide is shown by the digital display as an easy-to-understand graphic image.
Design-wise, the models of this lineup come in standard black or white in addition to blue and green pastel hues that recall the image of retro surfboards. The faces of the blue and green models are decorated with the silhouette of a surfboard.
From design to functions, everything about these models is geared towards summertime beach activities.
