The watch is a striking pink which was an instant hit with me as I just love anything pink! The strap is a thick cloth strap which has a cord like kind of feel and this makes it extremely hard wearing but also washable which is a great plus in my opinion. (The strap in the picture is a gel strap but mine is material). The face of the watch has two thin bars across which have a rubber cushion and I presume this is to prevent scratches. It looks a little unusual but I personally think it adds to the appeal of the watch. Surrounding the face of the watch is a chunky pink rubber casing which again really protects the watch from any damage.
The watch itself is digital with a number of features shown on the face at all times. I will try and describe it as best I can so you can get an idea of the design and features. At the top of the face you are shown the first three letters of the day of the week in capital letters. Underneath that you are shown the date, and under that you will find the time. Around the face of the watch are four buttons - adjust, alarm, 24hour and mode select. To alter any of those features you simply press the button and you have the option to change them which you simply do by pressing the corresponding buttons when prompted to - this is done as with any digital watch where the screen will flash so you know what you are changing. Under the watch face is a long white button with a G on, and when this is pressed the face of the watch will illuminate blue so it is ideal for when you need to check the time in the night!

This watch really is shock resistant, in the years I have had it there have been numerous occasions where I have knocked it, even once where I have dropped it and stood on it!! Like I say I have had this watch quite a few years now and there is only one single scratch on the face and that is barely noticeable so the bars and rubber really do protect it from any damage. The alarm on the watch is great, in the past I used it as my alarm clock every morning but now it is just easier to use my phone or I would still be using the watch. One great feature with the watch is that the calendar has been pre-programmed all the way to the year 2039, now while I know my watch won't last that long it just means that any future replacement will be programmed well in advance.
I used to have a real watch obsession and have quite a lot stashed away in my cupboard and these range from one or two character watches (Elmo being my favourite!!) to a gorgeous Dolce And Gabbana one. However, the main one I wear on a very regular basis is a Casio Baby G watch which I received some years ago as a present from my mum.
