    Casio AW-82 Mini Review

    The Casio AW-82 is designed for fishermen, but it's robust features have many uses from the city to the country.




    .

    It is on the smallish side and VERY light. Some may want a more substantial feeling. It is one of those amazing "bang for the buck" watches that Casio. can do so well.

    For under U.S.$30, the watch is packed with features. Here are the specs from Casio:

    Resin Glass / Spherical Glass
    50-meter water resistance
    Case / bezel material: Resin
    Resin Band
    LED light
    Afterglow
    Dual time
    Fishing mode
    The suitability of a specific date and time for fishing is indicated as one of five levels.
    Moon data (Moon age of the input data, Moon phase graph)
    1/100-second stopwatch
    Measuring capacity: 23:59'59.99"
    Measuring modes: Elapsed time, split time, 1st-2nd place times
    Countdown timer
    Measuring unit: 1 second
    Countdown range: 24 hours
    Countdown start time setting range: 1 minute to 24 hours (1-minute increments and 1-hour increments)
    Others: Auto-repeat, time up alarm
    Multi-function alarms
    3 independent multi-function alarms (2 one-time alarms and 1 snooze/one-time alarm)
    Alarm type: Daily alarm, date alarm, 1-month alarm, monthly alarm
    Hourly time signal
    Full auto-calendar (to year 2099)
    12/24-hour format
    Button operation tone on/off
    Regular timekeeping:
    Analog: 2 hands (Hour, minute; hands moves every 20 seconds)
    Digital: Hour, minutes, seconds, am/pm, month, date, day, daylight saving on/off
    Accuracy: 30 seconds per month
    Approx. battery life: 10 years on CR2025
    Size of case: 46.8  40  13.5 mm
    Total weight: 34 g
    LED:Amber

    Only a few criticisms:

    Even for Casio's very low end, the strap feels plasticky, flimsy and cheap. I will likely replace it.

    The LED is useless, of course, on the digital functions. I found it inadequate for the analog functions (seeing hands and dial) as well.

    very cool indeed
    one night I dreamed I was locked in my fathers watch, with Ptolemy and twenty one ruby stars mounted on spheres and the primum mobile coiled and gleaming to the end of space and the notched spheres eating each other's rinds to the last tooth of time and the case closed - John Ciardi ...

    It has a metal sibling, the AMW-700!

    Same module specs but SS housing and mineral glass lens.
    I really like those weird functionality in a watch!

    Nice feature set.

    2025 battery would probably last more than 10 years.
