Reviews for Casio Collection Unisex Adults Watch A168WA
People say Casio is really similar to Timex.
A Good Value
If telling time and a stop watch function are all you need, this does the job. Clearly "retro" looking, but operates perfectly. The band is easy to adjust and to put on and take off with one hand. I have been a fan of inexpensive digital watches for years. Usually replacing my Timex "plastic" ones every couple of years. I switched to this a few months ago and like it better overall.
It's a Casio.
I'd been going with TIMEX for a long time and still love my cheap Timex. This watch is great. Easy to set, easy to see.
by far my favorite watch
i have this, a timex weekender, and an Apple Watch and this is the timepiece i find myself reaching for every morning. it’s very sleek and low profile. it’s resistant to minor scratches. it’s essy to replace the battery (had for 6 months now and haven’t needed to bc it died, but because i knocked it loose don’t ask) the steel looks well with my cooler skin tone. will be buying another when and if mine dies
I love love love this watch
I bought this as a birthday gift to myself. I cannot say enough good things about this watch. I wear it every day. While this is advertised as a men's watch, I am a girl and I adore it. The stainless steel makes it feel expensive, yet this is the cheapest watch I own. The other two (Shore Projects watch and a Timex watch) were much more pricey and yet, they are not nearly as comfortable as my Casio watch! For a little over fifteen dollars, this watch is a steal. It is practical -- you can set alarms, use a stopwatch feature, and it is waterproof, according to the description. The materials are strong and I believe this watch will last many years. Some people complain that it is difficult to adjust the wristband, but if you look up a how-to on YouTube it can be done in seconds. Honestly if you're feeling unsure about buying this watch, just do it. I was on the fence for awhile and I wish I had purchased it sooner! It's a great product and I will surely buy another when mine gets worn out.

replaced my broken Timex less than a year old that cost 3 times the money, I think this watch will last intel I wear it out.
Great replacement for Timex that I have used for years
Great replacement for Timex that I have used for years. Had one of these years ago, that's why I went back to it
still love them, but mostly I just want a watch ...
I’m over big, bulky watches. I’ve got my Suunto and a couple G-Shock watches. I still wear them, still love them, but mostly I just want a watch that keeps nice, precise time, doesn’t stand out from my wrist 3/4 inch and hopefully looks juuuust a little dorky. I’m also cheap. Waterproofness is important to me. I work a desk job. I commute by bus or train- watches help with that. I like to go on a run a couple times a week and wear a watch. I don’t sleep or shower with my watch on unless I’m camping or in a hotel. I like digital over analog because I kind of like to know exactly what time I think it is and I only ever estimate when I’m reading an analog watch because I’m lazy. Also, when I’m in a meeting or I’ve been pinned-down by someone I don’t want to talk to and I want to know if this really is taking forever or if my perception of the passage of time is just being warped- it’s easier to sneak a peek at a digital watch and get a precise read. I realized a few months ago that I really am just as happy wearing a $15 Casio as I am with my $250 Suunto and that most days I don’t need to know the barometric pressure. Some days, yes. Most days, no. But I like having a variety of watches (including the Suunto, which is fabulous). And I like to choose which watch to wear each morning. That’s fun for me. Recently I got on Amazon and ordered a bunch of new cheap Casio watches. I got four new watches for $52. I think Timex’s are over-priced. That’s how cheap I am. Casio W-800HAV ($2... Read More
Does the deed with a proper backlight, but band choices are limited.
This is a basic watch to do a basic job of keeping time. It also shows the day and date without having to push buttons. It looks "retro" by today's standards, partly because of the shape and all of the '80s tech marketing hype plastered around the display. It would be nice if it had a countdown timer, but that was not standard on watches like this "back in the day". This is the A168, which is a cousin to the A158. I believe they have the same or similar module inside. The main differences are: * The A168 is ~1.5mm thicker than the A158. * The A168 has an electro-luminescent backlight instead of the single LED on the A158 * The A168 case is shaped differently than the A158, particularly where the band attaches. * The A168 case shrouds the band along the top, which will obstruct thicker bands. The A158 does not have this problem. The case is chromed plastic and the band is brushed stainless steel. Some don't like the contrast, but this is how these watches have always looked. The chrome plating is fairly thick and more durable than some of the modern stuff from Timex (which chips and peels away quickly). Eventually the chrome does wear away at the corners and the watch will look shabby. The fix is to buy a new one. The plastic seems softer than I remember, as I had a pin rip out of case after getting snagged on a seat belt. I fixed it by buying a new one. As others of stated, the band is a bit "snaggy" when it comes to arm hair. It uses an 18mm band, but *beware* that many ... Read More
Easy to set. Not as sturdy as a Timex, but at half the price still a good purchase.
Compared to the Timex Indiglo of similar make, this is a higher quality watch at around $10 cheaper.
