Enjoy our Casio WS-1200 Watch Review

WS-1200H-2AV is a lovely watch. Despite its “budget” nature, this watch is something to admire [especially the fish, if you like it]. Anglers will get their emotional outlet, but I think even the casual passerby will appreciate the beauty of the look and the basic digital functionality of the WS-1200H-2AV.

Use the Timekeeping Mode to set and view the current time and date.

Fishing/Moon Mode

The Fishing/Moon Mode displays an indicator that shows, as one of five levels, the suitability of a specific date and time (minute 00 to minute 59 of a particular hour) for fishing. This mode also can be used to display Moon Data (Moon age and Moon phase) for a specific date.

– All of the operations in this section are performed in the Fishing/moon Mode, which you enter by pressing C.


The stopwatch lets you measure elapsed time, split times, and two finishes.

Press D while in the Countdown Timer Mode to start the countdown timer.
– When the end of the countdown is reached and auto-repeat is turned off, the alarm sounds for 10 seconds or until you stop it by pressing any button. The countdown time is automatically reset to its starting value after the alarm stops.
