Athletes have another reason to get excited, thanks to Casio’s GA-700-2A!
This analogue/digital combo watch is completely blue. It’s not just the band and bezel either! Even the digital display is a shade of blue.
While combo watches sometimes have a small digital screen, the GA-700 has similar proportions to the GA-110, so you can see the digital display easily. Just in case you can’t, Casio gave the GA-700s a hand-shift feature, which will move the hands out of the way, giving you an unrestricted look at the digital display.
I mentioned athletes before, and that’s due to two modes specifically for them. First is the stopwatch start function. Instead of going through the modes trying to find it, all you need to do is press a button while you’re in the main screen, and he stopwatch will start right away.
The second mode is the target time alarm. Give the stopwatch a time limit, and then try to watch or beat it. The training possibilities are endless!

sits well on the wrist review by Josh D on 5/07/2017
Usually big watches are uncomfortable on my wrist This one I was able to fit perfectly right off the bat, and loved it. Easy to follow instructions as well.
Looks more expensive than it is! review by Jeremy S on 14/06/2017
Usually I don't like resin bands since they look so cheap, but it actually works really well on this watch! Doesn't look like cheap plastic, and it's really comfortable to wear!
