Casio G-Shock G-2900 Watches

One of the most popular G-Shock watch series to date. In particular, because of the affordable price, because the G-2900 can be called the most inexpensive shock-resistant watch Casio. The low cost could not but affect the functionality of the models, where you will not find something very innovative, but you get a complete set of basic digital features: a stopwatch, timer, alarm clock, calendar, automatic backlight, etc. In addition, a 10-year battery will remove the issue of changing batteries for a very substantial period.
