A watch is probably one of the items that gets the least attention. However, wearing the right style of watch can easily pull together or ruin an outfit because, just like any item of clothing or accessory, a watch can determine what kind of personality you have.

A watch that is sporty in design will let people know that you are into sports and probably spend most of your time doing sports. If you see someone wearing a watch that is peppered with diamonds and gemstones then you know that person definitely likes the finer things in life.

If you are looking for a no-frills, colorful watch then the Casio Water Resistant Digital Blue Resin Strap Watch is a good option.

This watch is inspired by the classic design of the DW-5600 from G-Shock but with an octagonal case shape and button guards. It is a water-resistant watch with a blue resin band designed for everyday, casual wear.

Pros

For a waterproof watch, the Casio Water Resistant Digital Blue Resin Strap Watch is surprisingly lightweight. It does not have the usual weight that you will find in water-resistant watches.

It also does not have the thickness that you would expect from a waterproof watch, making this one easy to wear.

The thickness and weight of it also does not make it look too overpowering and bulky on your wrist. These features make it a nice change from the thicker G-shock you may be accustomed to.

Although it has a large face, it does look too large on the wrist. The large digital face also makes it easy to read and tell the time from.

The buttons are very easy to use and the settings are user-friendly. You do not have to spend hours on end just to the set the time or the different features to your liking.

It is able to display either in 12 or 24-hour display mode so it can cater to both preferred specifications. It also displays the day of the week and the date on the main timekeeper screen, making it a good on-the-go calendar. It is also very easy to set the time and the alarm on.

A few who have reviewed the Casio Water Resistant Digital Blue Resin Strap Watch found that it does what it advertised to do when it comes to water resistance. It can survive going into the shower or a swimming pool.

This watch is a simple, no-frills watch that is designed for everyday wear. It is also suitable for both men and women.

Cons

Although the Casio Water Resistant Digital Blue Resin Strap Watch has been complimented for its thickness and weight, a few who have reviewed the watch found that it can be more like a kid’s watch than one suitable for an adult.

Others say that it is too big to be considered a kid’s watch. Some also found that the watch, overall, is too flimsy.

A few have also mentioned that the resin blue strap can tend to look a little inexpensive compared to the other brands available in the market today. They found that the resin sometimes would stick on the skin and would get a little sticky when wet.

The color of the strap is more dark blue than bright blue so if you prefer something brighter then this might not be the best color choice for you.

There were also a few who have reviewed and used the watch who found some concerns with regards to the longevity of the watch. They found that after several times of wearing the watch, it would just quit working.

Verdict

If you are looking for a simple, yet functional and fashionable water-resistant watch then the Casio Water Resistant Digital Blue Resin Strap Watch is a great option.

It meets all the quality standards you can expect from a Casio watch as well as the functionality of a waterproof one. Although there were some arguments regarding its weight and size, the Casio Water Resistant Digital Blue Resin Strap Watch is still a good option.
