Due to the massive popularity of these watches I thoguht they deserved a page all of their own. If you’re after a mens LED watch then there’s a few brands you can check out – Black Dice, Diesel and Tokyo Flash.
By far the most prolific LED watch makers these guys specialise in urban-industrial style watches with bold lines and unique designs. They have a number of LED watches in various colours too so you’ll likely find one to suit any occasion. The colours below are just 3 of 8 different colours – click one for more:
Tokyo Flash have a bit of a cult following for their very unique LED watch designs. Many of their designs can be difficult to tell the time on until you’ve gotten used to the unusual method each watch uses. There’s literally hundreds of different designs of watch with new ones being released constantly. The only place worth buying from is Tokyo Flash direct – but don’t worry as the delivery is very reasonable even though its coming from Japan – check out their site at: tokyoflash.com
This watch comes with everything you need for everyday life:
- Second time zone
- 5 Alarms (1 Snooze) + Chime In
- Compass and temperature measurement
All this in a clean attractively designed Casio housing. The display is particularly noteworthy, with its large numbers, it is clear, high contrast and easy to read at any time. The backlight works inversely by illuminating the digits themselves rather than the whole face. The buttons are large, non-slip and easy to use.
The internal “Module 3157” provides much of what fans call THE Casio technology.
The time is displayed in all modes! Extra kudos to Casio for this! The markers for active alarms, daylight saving time etc. can be displayed directly. Operation and calibration of the compass is kept simple.
If I had to criticise something, then it would be the stopwatch, which includes only 60 minutes before ticking over. Also, the temperature measurement has limited usefulness because it will be distorted by your body heat.
These are minor issues though and so I’d give the watch a resounding 5/5 – well worth buying.
- Includes stop watch, alarm and countdown
- The tough mineral glass resists scratching

- Water resist – 200m
- Shock-resistant construction protects against impact and vibration
This excellent stealthy black watch by Casio and bearing the G-Shock protection make a great sporting, casual and business watch due to its dark design.
Even with a black LCD screen this watch makes fro easy viewing of the display in low light levels. The use of luminous material was omitted, in complete darkness are the pointer is not visible. The workmanship is typical of G-Shock in that its absolutely flawless, the resin housing encloses the working parts inside. Although the watch is large it seems to work well on smaller wrists due to the design of the rugged wrist strap.
This Casio is a true classic among men’s watches and basically fit for any occasion. The strap is sturdy and keeps even after 365 days of daily use such. The length itself can be adjusted without any problems, just with a knife or a nail under the tab on the underside of the strap that holds the lock.
The time can be displayed in the am/pm format or in the classic 24-hour format, an advantage over the smaller golden ladies version (LA670WGA) ruled that only the English time format. The display is made from mineral glass and so is resistant to scratching. Althoguh after a few years you can’t help but gain some scratching it is very faint.
All in all a great product which I can recommend any time without any hesitation.
Collecting watches is a favorite hobby and the Casio Sport PRG-40-3VUR Pro Trek is a model that I particularly love. I’m nuts about watches and I’m nuts about the weather. And so if you ask me, this is the best of both worlds!
Speaking of which, I love the design, too. It might be chunky and huge for some people, but itís just right for my wrist. Some people don’t dig the massive display but I have a problem reading small characters so it is definitely a big plus for me. Itís also very high-tech. It can read barometric pressure, altitude, and temperature. It stores and displays graphs for all these data… and if you don’t have a compass, this watch is pretty awesome.
In the durability department, Iíve had mine for years now and it still works fine. I’m quite the sporty guy and I love going swimming and scuba diving. As with any new watch, I had my reservations when I first brought it with me underwater. But I wanted to see if it the claims of the manufacturer were true. And what do you know.. it still works like a charm even after the many times I hit it on my scuba tank!
- 100 Meter Water Resistant.
- Triple Sensor
- 1/100 Sec Stopwatch.
- 5 Daily Alarms.
- Electro-Luminescent Backlight: Auto Light Switch, Afterglow.
- Low Temperature Resistant: (-10 C/ 14 F)
- Hourly Time Signals
There were some things that concerned me though. For one thing, it took just the smallest things to mess with the accuracy of the data. The compass works perfectly well if the watch is laid flat. However, even just a tiny piece of iron could distort the reading. The thermometer showed some discrepancies, too. The truth is that this watch needs constant calibration in order to keep the sensors accurate, which is something that I forget to do at times. Also, the battery needs to be changed after every 5 years unlike that of an automatic. Keep in mind that its strap is only made out of plastic, which causes a lot of sweat to build up especially when I’m huffing and puffing up the mountain trail.
With all things said and done, the Casio Sport PRG-40-3VUR Pro Trek is an awesome piece of equipment. And for it’s price, you really can’t go wrong.
I work in the construction and was looking for a watch that would be able to keep up with the demands of my work. I wanted something durable and functional–something that wouldn’t easily get damaged when exposed to rough conditions. A friend recommended that I buy the Casio G-Shock G-9100-1ER since he also owns one. The appearance of this watch is simply outstanding. And since it came from Casio, a trusted name when it comes to watches… Of course, I had high expectations.
Good thing that it didn’t let me down. Talk about value for money especially with all its specs and features. For one, I found the resin strap very comfortable on the wrist. It fit snugly and I didn’t experience the kind of allergies I usually get when I use leather straps. Yeah, I know.. I’m in construction but my skin’s pretty sensitive, too. It’s interesting how I first had to adjust to the lightness though. This one is very light–sometimes I forget I’m wearing it at all. I’ve hit it a couple of times on some steel bars though and it’s been able to withstand that. I never thought that something so light could be this durable.
I’ve read other reviews saying that they have trouble looking at the display. In my case, I find the display very appealing. The gold numbers on black work fine with me except in conditions where the lighting is poor. This is okay, I guess, since I have the option to switch on the glowing back light and I can even set it to automatically light up when I tilt my wrist.
There is a need to wash the watch though especially when you sweat a lot like myself. It smells now so that’s a word of warning to those who are like me. Also, I never really got the chance to figure out how the Tide Graph works, which is its main feature. I’m sure that sailors and divers will find this most useful. I am quite happy with my Casio G-Shock G-9100-1ER since I’ve never had to take it for repairs yet, and it will be a while until I need a battery replacement.
One of my very first watch purchases is the Adidas Peachtree Chronograph Watch ADH4000. Itís a stylish watch and definitely not the typical kind you see anywhere.
Talk about a nice, sleek look that suits anyone–whether young or old, male or female. The clear LCD display and large numeral markers make it easy for me to read the time. It also has a backlight that I can activate to see the time when it’s getting dark out. Plus, it also has a date function that helps me keep track of all my important dates. One thing I don’t like about this watch, however, is the color. Since the watch strap is white, it easily gets dirty especially if Iím wearing it outdoors. I hate to sound like a dirty person. But there have way too many instances that I’ve had to scrub it clean because of its filthy gray color.
Have to give this watch props for its durability though! Iíve worn it several times during mountain hiking and it has never broken down on me. I also like it that sits on my wrist comfortably, and isn’t too heavy or bulky. The white polycarbonate strap also has a really nice feel on the skin. I also read online that it’s hypoallergenic. I’m pretty sensitive myself and I haven’t gotten any allergies or rashes while wearing it.
I know the alarm feature is quite standard for this type of watch, but I really appreciate the fact that it’s consistently gotten me up on several occassions. It is also water-resistant to up to 50 meters of depth, so I donít have to worry about it getting wet. Iíve even worn it while swimming and snorkeling and it’s still working fine. If you’re thinking of getting a watch, trust me when I say that you definitely will get your money’s worth when you buy an Adidas Peachtree Chronograph Watch ADH4000.
I bought the Casio G-Shock Wave Ceptor GW-002E-1VER a few weeks ago as a replacement for my ten-year old watch. Great buy for a watch that is solar-powered. I’m impressed. Since the time Iíve worn this, the battery indicator has always showed a full charge. It’s that or I’m just always out in the sun WAY TOO OFTEN. Although I havenít had the chance to try it, Casio says that this model can work in the dark for up to 8 months on a full charge.
Because I travel a lot due to my work and I switch from timezone to timezone on a weekly basis, the Waveceptor technology is really convenient. Why? It automatically adjusts the time on my watch whenever I enter a new time zone. It also keeps my time unbelievably accurate. And did I tell you that it also fits snugly on my wrist, too? The bulky appearance can be deceiving, I tell you. It’s not heavy at all.
I also chose this watch because it’s a Casio. They’re known for their shockproof watches and Iíve been a fan of their G-shock series for quite a while. So what else… This watch has the usual features, really. It has multiple alarm functions, water resistance of up to 200m below sea level, an auto calendar that’s pre-programmed until the year 2039, and an Automatic Light Afterglow power-saving feature.
I love it but the watch strap could definitely use some improvement! I’m sure so many people would have wanted a more robust strap. It’s comfortable alright but it could break off any minute. I also struggle with the countdown timer and I find the alarm a bit too soft for my liking. But overall, the watch is definitely worth more than its price. I strongly recommend the Casio G-Shock Wave Ceptor GW-002E-1VER especially if you are the type who travels a lot or enjoys the outdoors.
