The Best Casio G-Shock Watch for Formal Occasions and/or When You Need to Dress Up

You may not need to dress up, but maybe you enjoy dressing up and looking your best. Many people think that Casio G-Shock watches are only for working out, the military, hunting, or situations where you will be dirty and sweating. You can also wear a G-Shock on formal occasions when you need or want to dress up and look nice.

The Casio G-Shock model GMWB5000D-1 will look great along with a nice suit or even tuxedo. You could wear one of these to a wedding or other formal occasion just so you remember to turn off all the alarms and hourly beeping. To do this see our page on how to find your user manual for your particular Casio G-Shock watch.

Slap this on your wrist and you are sure to be noticed and you are bound to receive many compliments and questions.

Caveat: The only problem that we have with this watch is that emits Bluetooth which is a type of microwave radiation. This makes it potentially harmful to biological life and potentially insecure since Bluetooth is a type of networking protocol which opens up the possibility for the device to be hacked or bugged. We would recommend finding one without any kind of networking if you value your privacy and security.
