5 Reasons to Own a Casio G-Shock Watch

The Casio G-Shock is a very dynamic watch that has a high cool factor. It first debuted in 1983. Ever since then people have been scooping these watches up. I have been hooked on these watches ever since I saw that first G-Shock commercial (video). In the scene, a hockey player takes a shot at a goalie. But he’s not shooting a puck; it’s a Casio G-Shock watch. This G-Shock can “take a slap in the face and not even flinch.” It’s a powerful commercial that really makes you curious about the G-Shock watch.

Here are 5 reasons why you should go out and buy a Casio G-Shock watch right now:

Shock resistance . This is the heart of what makes the G-Shock a great watch. Throw it, drop it, lose it, and find it. This watch can withstand almost any kind of punishment.

Inexpensive . Relative to designer watches, G-Shocks are inexpensive. You can buy one for as little as $35 or as much as $800. However, there are lots of choices in the sub-$100 range. These G-Shocks also have a high resale value. I recently sold my old G-Shock watch for $40 on eBay.

Atomic timekeeping . Many of the G-Shock models feature atomic timekeeping. You’ll never have to adjust your time. The watch will sync with the atomic clock in Denver, CO once a day. That ensures that you always have the most accurate time.

Solar powered . Many G-Shock models are solar powered. That means you’ll practically never have to change its battery. Not only is this great for the environment, but it’s a great convenience for you.

Styles for everyone . From military personnel to fisherman to businessmen to celebrities like Justin Bieber , there is a G-Shock watch for everyone. There are G-Shock models that can predict the moon phases and tides, measure altitude/pressure/temperature, and resist mud. Casio also has the Baby-G line of G-Shock watches for women. There are so many cool models to choose from. It’s not uncommon for people to own more than one G-Shock.

Go shopping and join the G-Shock family. Please note that I am not affiliated with Casio in any way. I am just a huge fan of these watches. Check out the Casio G-Shock line of watches and become a fan yourself.
