Casio Sports Men's, Ladies, Digital, Analog Watch Review

Updated on January 9, 2015

Casio Sports

Casio's Sports watches can be considered G-Shock “light” when it comes to sheer bulk and size – but in terms of functionality, they hold their own. One of the reasons for that is that these timers possess measuring utilities that no other Casio watch offers: deep lap memory, heart rate monitor and acceleration sensor are two worth a special mention.

It might appear strange that the brand would use such generalist terms as “sport” for this collection – the lion's share of Casio timpieces were after all, designed for various sports. In this case the designers had mostly athletics in mind, and athletics had long been considered the “queen of sports,” and as such doesn't need such a special introduction as a G-Shock Mudman would require. Somehow, athletes who know what they want and need, will find this collection.

Casio Sports deserves to be described as a versatile line not only for its electronic functions, but also for the shapes it offers. Both men's and ladies, but in particular the latter variations, can show some curiously modelled pieces.

Gear

Multi-Task Gear and derivative watch models combine analog and digital displays, exploiting the advantages of both systems on the one hand and offering a more affordable alternative to the high-end Edifice on the other.

It's also more straightforward in terms of functions: Fish indicator substitutes the meticulous tide graph of the Pathfinder, though thermometer function remains unaltered.

Dials substitute numerals for indexes, and, according to the model, can feature a completely LCD face; most timers contain a couple of prominently embedded LCD windows.

Heart Rate Monitor

This watch doesn't look like a timepiece – it was elongated and reshaped to appear like a futuristic instrument (which it is, one measuring the wearer's medical related data). The hardware can compute the “specs” of a runner between the ages of 15 and 70, weighing between 20 to 200 kg.

Familiar stopwatch, alarm, world time, backlight with afterglow, and other Casio standard utilities indicate that this is still primarily watch – albeit a very specialized one.
