NEWS – If you prefer an old-school watch over a smartwatch, you need to check out these newly released watches from Casio.  I had a beautiful Baby-G watch years ago with a translucent blue case and band, and the face featured an animated swimming dolphin.  These Casio Baby-G Origin Series women’s watches don’t have the dolphin, but they do have the translucent colored band and case.

The BG169R-4E model is pink with red accents; the BG169R-2C is blue with coral accents.  Both models have the following features:

  • Shock resistant
  • 200M water resistance
  • EL Backlight with Afterglow
  • 25pg Databank – memory capacity up to 25 sets of data, each set including: Name (8 characters) and telephone number (12 digits)
  • World Time – 29 time zones (30 cities), city code display, daylight saving on/off
  • Day Counter – automatically counts down the days from the current date to a target date for up to five records
  • 5 daily alarms
  • Hourly time signal
  • 1/100 second stopwatch – measuring capacity: 23:59’59.99″ with measuring modes: Elapsed time, split time, 1st-2nd place times
  • Countdown Timer – measuring unit: 1-second; input range of 1 minute to 24 hours (1-minute increments and 1-hour increments)
  • Full Auto Calendar (pre-programmed until the year 2099)
  • 12/24 Hour Formats
  • Button Operation Tone on/off
  • Accuracy: +/- 30 seconds per month
  • Battery: CR1616; approximate battery life of 3 years

Casio Baby-G Origin Series watches are $79 each in blue or pink.  You can purchase them at Casio or search there for a local retailer.
