For a very decent price, you get a dazzling piece precision technology.
When you first remove it from its packaging it awakens from its 'sleep mode', rapidly seeking the correct time.
As advertised, it does acquire a special radio signal several times a day -- rather, several times overnight until 6:00 am.
I got seduced by the Owner's Manual, screwing around with the buttons, trying to switch the digital display from 12-Hour time to 24-hour time and I made a mess of it -- accidentally reconfiguring the time to read one MONTH and two hours behind!
I was ready to phone CASIO personnel to bail me out, but not before letting the watch rest overnight on a windowsill.
It simply corrected itself.
Supposedly, this watch does not actually meet its waterproof credentials. Fine. It's a very cool watch. Keep it as dry as possible. It would probably survive a severe rain storm but try not to submerge it.
Also, don't keep the band too tight around your wrist; one size larger than "snug" will keep your band from breaking under normal use.
Bottom line: a very cool watch, probably better than its price point.
