I'll admit that Watch Report tends to be a little biased toward men's watches,but being a pretty big G-Shock fan in general, I have to make the occasional exceptionfor Baby-G's. If you're a guy, and you're about to head off to Google to searchfor a more manly watch, aren't you forgetting that it's almost the holidays,and that Casio Baby-G watches make wonderful and affordable gifts?As far as I know, these are the first G-Shocks (Baby or otherwise) to appear asanything other than round (or roundish) since the initial square G-Shocks were introducedback in 1983. They rounded out in 1987, and have remained that way until now. Notonly are these newest Baby-G's square, but they're colorful, sophisticated, andfun. In the words of David Johnson, vice president of Casio's Timepiece Division:"Casio's newest timepieces are trendy, stylish and extremely functional.The Baby-G's are the perfect accessory for today's busy lifestyle, matchingsupreme style with advanced features that make your life easier. The new squareBaby-G's are just the right thing to add a dash of rogue style to the latest springlooks. On the flip side they can add the necessary polish to an outfit for the boardroom.As versatile as they are chic, they're a sign of the times. It's hip to be square!"While I'm pretty sure these words were actually written by someone in PR and/orMarketing as opposed to being uttered by David Johnson himself, I wouldn't disagreewith them. Now let's have a look at features.
