Cool as Ice!
While Vanilla Ice was cool in the 90’s, and never seemed to have endured the test of time in comparison to Madonna and Michael Jackson, the Casio Women’s BG169R-7A upholds the coolness of the Baby-G brand. Its shiny white color, and not-so-big size makes it a perfect companion to most everyday apparel choices.
Packed with Features
With so many neat features packed into it, this Baby-G is definitely, a great find and worth every penny, even if, in reality, you won’t be using every single feature.
The G-Shock Resilience
G-Shock, which is Casio’s shock-resistant line of wristwatches, was released in 1983. Because it gained so much popularity, as well as the trust of so many users worldwide, the need for a more feminine version was imminent. Hence, in 1994, the first Baby-G line of watches was released. This current model lives up to that legacy by retaining its shock-resistant and water-resistant features.
While it would look very trendy on most ladies, this watch would appear to look more appropriate on tweens or teenagers…unless you’re in an 80’s or 90’s theme party. Also, some users might find the backlight animation either cute, or annoying.
White resin easily fades and some chipping might occur within one year of purchasing the watch. If you want to maintain its immaculate color, you would have to have it cleaned up by a pro, or you would have to use certain products to do so.
Because this watch comes with many features, you might have some trouble going through them without keeping the instruction manual by your side at all times.
The 90’s are back! In 1994, Casio gave birth to one of the coolest accessories that a hip lady ever wore. To this day, after almost 20 years since it was first released, the Baby-G watch is still as cool as ever.
