Good things come in small packages!
Don’t be fooled by the name Baby-G. This watch can do anything the DW-6900 series can. It looks, and functions, just like a normal G-Shock, only smaller in size.
Gloss white with a gold display, it has a Backlight button right at the front for when you need to know the time and there’s just not enough light coming through.
A resin band along with the resin bezel makes the watch difficult to damage, and Casio have also added a mineral glass. Resin has always been difficult to scratch and the mineral glass affords that same protection to the display.
But what about the functions of the watch? Casio didn’t want to just protect the looks of the watch, after all what good are the looks if it’s too broken to even keep time? That’s why, like with all Casio models, this watch comes with a Shock Resistance of 100m, meaning that if you fall and land on your watch, or if you were just rough housing, the watch will still be ok to function.

Nice review by Jack R on 29/11/2016
I wasn't a fan of getting this for my son, didn't want people to laugh at him for wearing a baby-g. So far so good though. There's nothing at all that makes people think it's a girl's watch, the colours are white and gold (and not rose-sold either). He's always had trouble reading analogue watches so this really helped out.
Flash alert is great since it captures his attention and reminds him when to take meds, and since it's silent he doesn't have to worry about drawing other people's attention.
Good watch review by Cameron D on 17/11/2016
Thought all Baby-Gs are girls watches but my parents bought this for me so I didn't want to seem ungrateful without trying it on. It's great, not too big so I didn't have to adjust it, and now I can tell the time. Nobody at school is making fun of me so that's awesome too!
Great watch review by Susanna A on 14/11/2016
Love the digital screen. That's always been my problem wtih Casio's watches since they were always concentrating on analogue/digital, and the digital part kept getting smaller. This watch is fully digital, but I still find the display looking too small. That's ok though.
