Can You Wear a Casio GWM5610-1 Daily?

I admit it – I love Casio G Shock watches, particularly the square faced ones. I’ve been trying to get one in this style with the Multi-band 6 for a while now, and am excited to finally have found one at a (very) reasonable price. Now I have to ask myself, Can You Wear a Casio GWM5610-1 Daily?




This model possesses Tough Solar and Multi-band 6 Atomic Timekeeping technology housed within an even slim profile octagonal case. Non-Stop Tough Solar Power provides energy via a small solar panel combined with a large-capacity rechargeable battery that enables a variety of energy-hungry functions to operate smoothly. Black resin band digital watch with neutral face.

GWM5610-1 On the Wrist


I spent weeks looking for a watch that wasn’t too flashy, too bulky, or uncomfortable. And, I wanted something that will last. Well I found it. This watch is super lightweight, has a very slim profile, and is packed full of features. I have a small wrist, so I needed a watch smaller than the large G-Shocks.

Even being small in size, this watch still stands up to the larger G-Shocks, in strength and features. It is atomic, so you never have to worry about the time being off. Syncs even on my nightstand. This was one of the deciding factors for me because I don’t like having to check and see if my watch is correct. Casio claims that this watch won’t ever be off more than a second, if it is synced periodically. Oh yeah, and it’s solar powered!

Another reason I got this watch is because it doesn’t have very many exposed metal pieces. I detail cars as a side gig, and I can’t have a metal watch that will scratch cars.

 One of the big decisions I had to make while I was searching for a watch was do I want a negative display? And truthfully, I still don’t know. This display doesn’t disappoint. It is crisp, and easy to read in all light conditions, even dark at night under street lamps. My conclusion, I love it. But, someday I would like to try a negative display.

I’m usually not a fan of big and bulky watches due to having a small (157 mm circumference) wrist. Complicated-looking watches with features/dials/gauges are just silly, especially if they are features I would never use. After owning the GW3000, I really like the atomic solar feature. There are a few other atomic solar G Shocks on Amazon that are slightly less expensive, but these are the reasons why I chose the GWM5610-1.

 GWM5610-1 Conclusion

Compared to the DW5600, this GWM5610-1 costs more than twice as much, but I think the GWM5610-1 is indeed twice as good. As long as you have atomic clock signal reception, you never have to set the time. You can set a second time zone for the world clock. It is not half the weight, nor is twice as durable, but these might be the only areas that the watch is not twice as good as the DW5600.
