For somebody hard of hearing, this vibrating watch is perfect!
This black watch with gold numbers has more going for it than just its looks. If you set an alarm (you can set up to 5), and you know you might not hear it, you can set the watch up to actually vibrate, and the back of the watch is designed to ensure, that your wrist will feel the vibration.
The GD-350 also has a unique take on the countdown timer. Most of the timers are small, come up only sometimes and aren’t really all that visible. This countdown timer actually takes up the top third of your screen with an hour, minute, second countdown, and if you want, you can also apply the vibrate function to that as well. Perfect if you’re on a mission.
The Casio GD350-1BD also comes with a rare feature that tells you when your battery is low on power. Most watches don’t do that, so it’s helpful to know when you’re close to needing a replacement battery.

Large numbers review by Belinda Johnson on 15/09/2016
I have bad eyesight so this watch is a must for me! The numbers are all big and visible, plus i love the gold colouring in the display.
Great vibrating function! review by Melissa on 7/09/2016
Bought this watch just for that reason alone. I have diabetes and have to remember to take my meds. Don't really want annoying beeping sounds all the time though (they'll just bring attention to me). This way it's more discrete and I still remember. Thanks Casio!
