Calculator watches were all the rage back in the 80s, and thanks to a few hip placements in shows like Stranger Things, and other popular movies, they are making a comeback.
Of course, when it comes to calculator watches there really is only one brand and that is Casio.
Here are some of the most popular and best calculator watches available online right now.
This Casio G-Shock with a classic green camouflage look is one of the most popular you can find.
Like all great G-Shocks it is both shock-resistant and water-resistant to 200m. Which means you can use it anywhere and expect it to always come out alive!
It also features a flash alert, multi-time, world time, stopwatch, and a count-down timer. All standard for a G-Shock. There are also five daily alarms, a full auto calendar, and 12/24 hour format
It is quite on the large size at 51 mm, so don’t buy this one if you have a small wrist.
Casio Camo GA100CM-5A
This Casio G-Shock Camo model has dual time modes – both analog and digital, which is great if you are in a hurry. The digital display is also using a negative display (ie light on dark), which is not as common on G-Shocks.
Like most G-Shocks of this kind it is quite large at 55mm diameter. It also has a very bright backlight that is also handy when you forget your flashlight!
Casio haven’t neglected the functions either, with: 1/100th second stopwatch, countdown timer, 5 daily alarms (with 1 snooze alarm), hourly time signal, auto-calendar to 2099, and military/dual time format (12/24hr).
Casio G-Shock Camo
Until you look very closely at the dial, you might not even know this is a camouflage model. The band and the case are both black, but inside the dial there are more subtle uses of camo!
It’s a 51mm case size, so the usual with G-Shock. And it also has dual time, with both an analog and digital display (again with a negative display).
Shock-resistant, of course, and 200m water resistance, along with the usual array of Casio functions top this model off.
Casio G Shock
You might expect a G-Shock camouflage to be in green or brown, but this model is a little different – gray!
Otherwise, it is more or less pretty standard by G-Shock standards. Just note though, that it only has digital display.
Casio G-Shock Mudmaster GGB100BA-1A Special Edition British Army CAMO
The Casio G-Shock Mudmaster range is known for being one of the best outdoorsmen watches you can get. It’s almost bullet proof (waterproof, shock-resistant and mud-resistant), and comes with a huge range of features.
As well as the standard G-Shock features (alarm, stopwatch etc) this model is far more useful out in the wild with: Altitude/Barometer, Compass and Thermometer.
This model, however, is a special edition feature the British Army’s own Multi Terrain Pattern of camo along with a carbon core case, and a riple-layered carbon-insert bezel.
This Casio G-Shock is the perfect option if you want a more vintage style Casio, but still want that camouflage look.
It’s still 200m water resistant, so can go swimming with you, and shock resistant too. It has the usual G-Shock functions (stopwatch, timer, alarm and backlight) but on top of that it also has a titanium case and scratch-resistant sapphire crystal.
It also has Casio’s Tough Solar, so won’t need a new battery change every few years. It can connect via bluetooth with your phone. It’s quite a pricey model with spectacular specs, and being a Japan only model, not always easy to come by!
MTG-B1000DCM-1AJR Limited Edition
If you have never seen the Casio G-Shock MTG range before, the prices can be a bit shocking. They are limited edition G-Shocks and some of the most expensive Casios you can get.
This particular model, the MTG-B1000DCM-1AJR has all the hallmarks of the MTG range, including a stainless steel case, sapphire crystal with non-reflective coating, layered composite (carbon) band, screw down crown, solar power and radio signal time calibration.
Yes, it’s also got camouflage, 200m water resistant, and shock resistant like all G-Shocks. But this watch is one you will almost never see in the wild!
