Finding a good wristwatch that is accurate, durable, and affordable is much easier said than done.
Sure, there are thousands of options to choose from, but more often than not, affordable watches are low quality, and anything high quality is going to cost a small fortune.
However, there are some great watches out there, such as those from Casio, which are extremely durable, highly functional, and won’t cost you an arm and a leg.
We are here to review one such watch from the G-Shock line.
G-Shock GW2310 Watch
The GW2310 Watch is one of the more reasonably priced Casio watches from the popular Casio G-Shock line which has been around for nearly 40 years, with over 100 million units sold.
The GW3210 is one of the more basic and affordable options, but just because it’s basic doesn’t mean that it doesn’t come with some really useful features, not to mention an overall high-quality design as well.
Who is This Watch For?
The G-Shock GW2310 Watch is designed for anybody who wants a good wrist-based timekeeping piece, one that is very accurate, requires no setting, is very durable, and comfortable too.
It’s not an expensive luxury watch, but it does look quite stylish, and as is the case with all G-Shock watches, even for the price, it’s one of the most rugged and toughest wristwatches out there.
When you purchase the G-Shock GW2310 Watch, you get a black digital watch with a durable black resin wrist band, the required battery to power it, and some really awesome features, which we are about to talk about in the following section.
Overview of Features
One of the coolest features of the G-Shock GW2310 Watch is that it is solar powered. Now, it does come with a battery that should last for well over a year all on its own, but that’s not factoring in the solar power.
When combined with the solar power, you can expect a good 2 to 3 years out of a single battery. When the battery is fully charged, it enters a power-saving mode. It’s convenient because you barely ever have to change the battery.
Yet another great feature of the G-Shock GW2310 Watch is how it comes with atomic timekeeping which means that it automatically connects to one of various atomic clocks located around the world, and when it connects, it automatically sets the time and date on its own.
This means that you don’t have to set the time by yourself, and moreover, thanks to this, plus the quartz feature, it’s a super accurate watch down to a fraction of a second.
Speaking of timekeeping, the G-Shock GW2310 Watch also comes with other basic digital watch features such as a stopwatch and a countdown timer, plus you can choose from 12 hour and 24 hour time formats.
The G-Shock GW2310 Watch might not be the smallest or lightest watch out there, but it does come with a soft resin band which is adjustable for size, so it is reasonably comfortable.
Not only is it quite comfortable to wear, but the watch itself is also super durable. It’s made with a 46.4 mm resin case and a mineral dial window.
As is the case with all G-Shock watches, this unit has an extreme amount of impact resistance, it’s not easy to scratch, and it is even water resistant down to 200 meters.
Tutorial: How to Use G-Shock GW2310 Watch
In order to use the atomic timekeeping feature, simply place the watch in an area that is free of electronic interference, such as in windowsill on a second floor where you don’t have a Wi-Fi router setup, and let the watch sit there for 10 to 15 minutes.
The watch will automatically set itself. To find out about all of the features of the G-Shock GW2310 Watch, reading the owner’s manual is highly recommended.
