    Question Casio G100-1BV G-Shock - Hourly alarm/chime ?

    Hi guys,

    I'm planning to buy a Casio G100-1BV G-Shock from Amazon.
    Casio Men's G100-1BV G-Shock Classic Ana-Digi Watch: Watches: Amazon.com

    I watched so many reviews and read lots of posts about this watch but I couldn't find this model has a hourly alarm or chime, what every you call it.

    I guess you understand it, "hourly beep".

    Some sources say "yes, it has" but some of them says "no, it hasn't".

    Need your help to find it out. If the answer is no, I won't buy it. Especially G100 owners please give me a hand.

    Thanks a lot,

    Nope, it seems like it doesn't. You can take a look at the manual here: http://ftp.casio.co.jp/pub/world_man.../en/qw2327.pdf

    Heck, even my GW-A1000 doesn't have an hourly chime (although I suppose you can consider it a tactical "advantage").

    More serious I would think is the lack of the timer. Those do come in handy occasionally.

    Here is the manual: http://ftp.casio.co.jp/pub/world_man.../en/qw2327.pdf

    At a first glance it seems it doesn't have it.

    L.E: Oops, the question was already answered a few minutes ago...

    Thanks guys as I see the answer is no :(

    Do we have any alteratives with same functions and diementions? Did Casio produced similar models of g100?

    The only special feature I see on the G100 is the magnetic resistance. If you need that, then all these models have it, plus the hourly chime. The cases are larger, however.

    If you don't need magnetic resistance, the following models have smaller cases and hourly chime:
