Tech where you don’t expect it

It’s easy to presume that the Apple Watch is the king of wrist tech, but look a little deeper (and much cheaper) and the Casio G-Shock GW-M5610-1ER offers a great deal.

1/ Satellite time keeping makes for to the second accuracy at all times.

2/ The backlight will turn on when you lift your wrist (you can turn this auto setting off if you like).

3/ It’s solar powered so you never need to charge it, ever.

4/ The strap will not irritate and every detail has been considered to ensure comfort.

5/ It’s water resistant to 200 metres.

6/ Stopwatch, multiple alarms, day, date, AM/PM, 12/24hr etc etc

7/ You can run it over with your car and it will be absolutely fine.

8/ A true world timer which covers every possible timezone with ease.

And it’s £70.

  1. Does not have satellite time keeping, only terrestrial radio, which only has 6 transmitters and doesn’t work in much of the world.
