The atomic signal works fine and I am located east of toronto
August 17, 2017
I always keep at least one digital casio in my rotation of watches. My last solar is now ten years old and still going strong. The reason you want to get the solar is because when you open the case back to change the battery you could jeopardize the seal and render it non water proof. Having a solar watch means you don't fiddle with replacing batteries every 3 years.
The atomic signal works fine and I am located east of toronto. The key is to make sure you are not handling or touching the watch in any way during sync, not even for a second. Mine had problems syncing manually but syncs fine overnight even when not located near a window so I say to forget about manual sync let it work automatically.
Overall it is lightweight and slim. If your wrist is over 7 inches you may consider it on the small side. The display is clear, more so than my previous gshocks.
Very utilitarian and retro. Get one.
