    Things needed on more Casio watches

    1. Databank. Sometimes this comes in handy. Unfortunately it's not available on many watches.

    2. Countdown Timer with a set number of repetitions. The standard CDT should probably stop after a certain number (5 or 10) on it's own. This would also make the CDT more suited for long-lasting battery or solar watches.

    3. Alarms with a short beep. If you are not using the watch to wake yourself up then you don't really need it to go on for 20 or 30 seconds. 2 seconds should be fine. (This could work with either a regular alarm or CDT).

    Nice ideas - on G-Shocks, as well.

    • Heart rate monitor sensor on the inner band would be nice
    • Blood pressure monitor
    • true GPS
    • WIFI

    ... and a cloak of invisibility button.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    1. I don't need the databank, so I'm glad it's only on a few watches. When you change batteries, the data is lost...too much of a pain to re-enter.

    2. I don't understand the CDT request.

    3. When the alarm goes off, you push any button and the beeping stops. So, you can have it go off for as long as you like, up to 20/30secs.


    I'd like to simply see bigger CDT and STW.

    solar/atomic everything

    vibrate option for alarms

    time to be displayed during stopwatch as well, not just cdt

    temperature gauge would be nice too, i switch from my g-shock to the pathfinder when swimming in open water because i can't tell the temp, but if all g's had temp gauges then i could just wear one watch for literally everything.

    i pretty much just described the gw-400j, so basically if all of the 400j's features were on every design i'd be a happy man.

    Wouldn't these features use a lot of power? I don't think I'd want either a death ray or the power of invisibility if it meant dropping to 'M'.
