REVIEW: Casio Waveceptor Watches

Waveceptor Watches from Casio bring to the table so many unique features that it makes them a perfect Holiday Gift for the person who thinks they have everything and enjoys receiving gifts that not only stand out from being ordinary, but offer you the latest and greatest in time keeping technology. That is why Casio Waveceptor Watches made it onto my Holiday Gift Giving Recommendations list this year. Casio offers a wide variety of Waveceptor Watches for both Men and Women that fit into the lifestyle you enjoy living and the design that best reflects your own unique sense of personal style. Whether you prefer the features of the Waveceptor Watch in a dressier version or a more casual look, Casio has one that best meets your needs.

The Waveceptor watches are great for men and women who are looking for a stylish watch with useful features to make life easier. Atomic Timekeeping, offering pinpoint accuracy, allows the watch to automatically receive time calibration signal updates on a daily basis from transmitters based on the user’s home city setting. Solar Power technology features a unique power saving function and allows Waveceptor timepieces to energize themselves through even the lowest level of illumination including natural, solar or artificial light.

Some of the Unique Features of Casio's Waveceptor Watches:


The Atomic feature will receive the time calibration signal automatically up to six times a day. When any auto receive is successful, the remaining auto receive operations are not performed.

Signal reception is normally better at night than during the day.


After a full charge, timekeeping remains enabled for about four months.

Storing the watch for long periods in an area where there is no light can cause the rechargeable battery to run down. When stored in a dark place, the power saving function will enter a sleep mode to conserve power and energy.

You don’t have to worry about changing your battery again with Waveceptor’s solar technology. The battery is automatically charged by light, either direct from the sun or from light sources inside. And it keeps that charge for the life of the watch. Watches with this feature have a solar cell and a special rechargeable battery that is charged by the electrical power produced by the solar cell.


- The display range of the stopwatch is 23 hours, 59 minutes, 59.95 seconds.

- The stopwatch continues to run, restarting from zero after it reaches its limit, until you stop it.


I was sent both a Men's and a Women's Casio Waveceptor Watch to review. One for me, one for my husband to experience. We immediately learned upon reading the specs that a watch is not just a watch! My husband is such a little gadget junkie that when we learned all the special features his Waveceptor Watch offers, he couldn't wait to use his new watch as his Thanksgiving conversation piece! He must have shared what he learned about atomic timekeeping and solar power technology with our entire extended family and then he continued to talk non-stop about it during football games throughout the weekend. I have not seen him this excited and enthusiastic about a watch, well......ever! So if you want to give someone you care about this Holiday Season the ultimate in a "cool" Watch experience, you may want to consider the gift of a Casio Waveceptor Watch! Here are the specifications on the two watches we received:

For me, wearing this watch and getting used to all of its innovative features will be a brand new experience! I typically only wear watches for 2 reasons, to be able to know what time it is and to for decorative accessorizing purposes. But wearing this Casio Waveceptor Watch adds a whole new dimension to my watch wearing necessity and I am going to embrace all that it has to offer and find enjoyment in all the extraordinary features it encompasses! So far I am pleasantly surprised by how cool it is to wear and I will not look at a watch in the same way ever again, I know now that "a watch is just not a watch"!

A very special thank you to CASIO for providing me with the 2 watches to use for this review.
