If you’ve ever been on a bike, chances are you’ll recognize the style Casio had in mind when they made the GA500 series of watches.
The GA-500-1A is Black, with the band and hands looking like they belong on a road bike. It’s analogue and digital, with the digital display at the top, and the analogue part in an extra-wide face.
If you’re worried about hands obscuring your view of the digital time, simply use the hand shift feature, and the hands will move out of the way for a few seconds.
Athletes will also find something to like in this watch. The button at the bottom of the watch is used to take you straight to the stopwatch function, so you don’t have to search for it.

Patient staff review by Cole J on 11/07/2017
I was very impressed with the service I received. I called them up at least 4 times with different questions, until I decided which watch I wanted. Then I called them up again to ensure the features are right for me. They were very patient, answered all my concerns, and I got my watch the next day!
Great swimming watch review by Shaun D on 7/07/2017
I love to swim and the other day I forgot to take off my watch! Was sure it was done fore but when I got out, it was functioning normally. I dried it off, and I haven't had any issues.
Coach's dream! review by Pat T on 2/07/2017
Man! This watch has really made my life easier! I hardly even touch my standalone stopwatch anymore! Here I can start it right away (just like any other stopwatch), and get the kids movingt! Great watch!
Great travelling companion review by Gabe J on 30/06/2017
I travel a lot for work, so it's great to have a world time letting me know what time it is back home where my family is. Also enjoying the alarms since they help me remember when to take my meds.A bit too big is the only issue
Looks great on my wrist review by Shawn G on 26/06/2017
I love this style of watc!h It's not too bulky, not too small and I don't have to keep fiddling with it when it's on my wrist. Usually it take ages for me to get used to, but this one was comfortable right away.
