Casio Introduces a New Vibrating G
Countdown timer. Stopwatchwith a resolution of 1/100 of a second. Automaticcalendar. Water-resistant to 200meters, or about650 feet.As far as my own personalG-Shock collection goes, I usually don't bother with anything thatisn't atomic and solar anymore simply because I think those are twovery useful features that Casio has really implemented well (see the CasioG-Shock GW-400J). But if your criteria is less stringent, andyour priorities are a tough, inexpensive watch with a vibrating alarm,The Casio G-Shock GL-7500HD looks like a very good fit. And it isreadily available in the US for only around $80. I love the idea of vibrating alarms. I think a vibrating alarmon awatch makes as much sense as a vibrating ringer on a mobile phone.Unfortunately, if you want a silent watch, you don'thave a lot of choices. Some options that come to mind are the TissotHigh-T, the TissotSilen-T, the CasioG-Shock GW-400J, and now the newest addition: the CasioG-Shock GL-7500HD.The Casio GL-7500HD is a watch intended for water sports, theidea being if your swimming, surfing, water skiing, etc., you're notlikely to hear an alarm. Additional water-related features include atide graph and water resistance to 200 meters (about 650 feet).Here's the full feature list for the Casio GL-7500HD: Vibratingalarm. Tide graph. World time(preprogrammed for 28 cities). Three daily alarmsand one snooze alarm.
