The sporty GA-700-7A is here!
This watch is a contrast of colours, having a completely white band and resin bezel, and a black (negative) digital display. This mix of colours actually helps see the analogue hands and markers, as they’re metallic white and stand out.
If the negative display makes it hard to see the time, you can use the super illuminator, which will light up the watch for up to 3 seconds, making it easier to read.
As a Casio G-Shock, the watch is resistant to 200m of water pressure, as well as 100m shock resistance. It would be a shame to have a ruined band though, so the resin is scratch resistant, and the display itself is protected by a mineral glass.
The GA-700 has a stopwatch with a very unique mode. It allows you to set a target time, and once the stopwatch reaches the selected time, it will sound an alarm. This helps you time yourself whether in sports or other activities, and will also help you improve.

Holds up in water review by Cole T on 25/07/2017
Bought the watch and decided to take it through its paces before I wrote anything. Very impressed! I went fishin, even took a dunk in the water, and it's still fine. Very large screen and easy to read for me. I see there's a hand shift feature, but so far the aanlogue hands haven't gotten in the way so I don't need to use it.
Great for its price review by Tom B on 24/07/2017
I love collecting G-Shocks and this is a great addition! 5 year battery instead of the usual 2 almost sold me, but the thing that really got me to buy is the target time stopwatch. love it!

deals review by Cam O on 15/07/2017
Really helpful customer service. Able to get me an even better deal and I received the watch the next day.
Didn't like but great service review by Sunny B on 9/07/2017
When I got this watch it was too hard to read so I wanted to return it. Ended up getting worked up over nothing! They told me where to send it, and I got my money back 3 days later! Don't like the watch whatsoever but the customer service was completely faultless!
One tough watch!! review by Chris L on 9/07/2017
This is great for dirty jobs! I'm a FIFO miner so my gets a rowkout Smetimes the dirt sometimes discolours the band, but it's easy to wash off! Great watch!
value! review by Kyle D on 9/07/2017
so many features! Love it!! and I didn't have any trouble setting it up so bonus!!
Nice thick watch review by Jamie S on 7/07/2017
I like this model! It's thick, and even though my wrists are 20cm wide, there's still two holes left over, so I can adjust the tightness (always had an issue with this in my other watches!).
I'm a PT so I'm really enjoying the easy functions like starting the stopwatch from the home screen, as well as assigning them a set time (clients don't enjoy that, but I do! :)
Looks great review by Piers J on 1/07/2017
love the loook and feel! the stopwatch timer is actually a good motivator
Easy to read watch review by Cam D on 30/06/2017
Analogue/Digital has always been hard for me to read. Either one or the other (usually both) were too small. Not having any problems with this watch though. The markers pretty much shine so I can see them easily, and the backlight helps me when it's dark.
Easy to set up, hard to read though review by Jaden L on 20/06/2017
I got this yesterday and I've already set it up to do what I need. The alarms all work great, setting the time to a different city didn't give me any hassles. the one problem I'm having is the display. Since it's so dark, it's hard for me to see. A bit disappointing considering this is such a great watch.
Big thank you to Rommie review by Leo K on 12/06/2017
Just wanted to take time to thank Rommie for being so patient with all of my questions. Everything was answered so well. I ended up buying this watch and figured out how to set it up easily. Just great professionalism and a big help in choosing the best watch.
