Nominations: best design, best functions, best resistance
The most distinctive specs:
200-meter water resistance (good for swimming but not for deep diving)

Radio-controlled Watch; Multi band 6 (additional way for time sync. This watch receives time calibration radio signals that keep the displayed time accurate)
Tough Movement (A CASIO-original thin analog movement made possible by hybrid mounting protects against damage and enables auto home position correction that helps keep you on time all the time)
TRIPLE G RESIST (Shock resistant, Centrifugal force resistant, Vibration resistant)
