yesterday I stumbled across a new model on the German Casio homepage which I hadn't seen before - the SGW-400: obviously the successor of the SGW-300 - same features but ana-digi and - maybe best of all: EL on the LCDs! Many people have been complaining about the LED-illumination on newer ana-digis - this one seems to solve that problem. And there's a black/orange version that looks a bit like a vintage ARW-320 - which was one of the first Casios I ever wanted to buy but didn't have the money at that time. Lucky me - now I can get this one instead:
SGW-400H-1B2VER - CASIO Collection - Uhren - Produkte - CASIO
So this is now one of the few Casio ana-digis with the following specs:
- 24 hr timer
- 24 hr stopwatch
- 5 alarms
Many Casio ana-digis lack one of those - either having just 60 min timer/STW or just one alarm - if I'm not completely wrong I think the AQ-190/GA-100 were the first ana-digi Casios with 5 alarms and longer stopwatch/timer duration. There are a few ana-digis with 100hr timer/STW but those have only one alarm.
It also has a CR2016 battery - not that ridiculously small CR1220 of the GA-100/110. Should be good for at least 3 years - even with the extra alti/baro functions.
