    Re: Casio GA-800

    Currently, afaik here on wus, its being overshadowed by its more popular brother the 35th anniv ga-835...

    I really like this watch, Im just waiting for prices to drop (and hopefully, no "second hand stuck" reports on this one)

    This one isn't listed as Tough Movement, so hopefully the sticking issue won't affect it. It definitely is a very clean design.

    Casio GA-800

    I am waiting eagerly for this to come to the U.S. as well. I like the clean face, reasonable size, and positive LCD.

    Very clean and legible face, I like. Not so sure about why they put numerals marking seconds on the dial. Maybe 24 hour military time numerals (13-23) would have been better. Still like the look though.

    Agree.
    Clean, uncluttered analog Watch.
    Smart matrix display for functions. Hope it is side illuminated.

    If I were going to get a analog from Casio, it would probably be this one.

    I think (purely engineering sense guess) it is not really the "tough movement" aspect of it (which, AFAIK just denotes the mechanical movement resistance to shock) but most likely the complexity of the software and hardware required to use the analog seconds hand as an indicator in a lot of the modes (Baro, compass, etc) along with the ability at any time to move the hour & minute hand off of the screens.

    I would guess that THOSE complexities are the source of the "bugs" in the hardware or the software that cause the issues. So I think just regular analog Gs or "Tough Movement" Gs that just use the hands to indicate time without any of the fancier stuff would be fine.

    Of course, this is just my guess and I have no way of proving it right or wrong, even if evidence points towards it; correlation does not imply causality :)

    The analog face is lit from the 9 O'clock side. The lcd is back lit with its own led.

    Greg1491 sent me this link for the watch. Toward the end it shows the led's in action and the lcd is definitely back lit. Mine has been confirmed that it will ship on Monday from Japan.
