I have worn Casio Databank watches since I was a kid, long before they were some kind of bizarre retro fashion accessory, as Casio seems currently to be marketing the remnants of this once noble product line. Now that I`ve been dragged, flailing and protesting, into the age of the cell phone, most of the aspects that once made the original Casio Databank useful (and cool) are moot. For example: PHONE NUMBERS -- No one with a cell phone needs to have records of important phone numbers on their wrist. No one who finds me unconscious is ever going to think of checking my watch for emergency contact information. CALCULATOR -- Your cell phone can do this. Not as compactly, but it can do it. SCHEDULE -- Your cell phone can do this, especially if you`ve got a smartphone. This was my favorite aspect of the Databank. You could set an alarm with text for a future date. This model has the future alarm capability, but you can`t add any text, so you`re left to guess why you set that alarm. TIMER/STOPWATCH -- I just discovered my ancient flip phone has these features. Alas. You get the picture. This is an air-brushed dinosaur. Why bother? After I recovered from the shock of losing my last Casio Databank, I debated long and hard about buying this watch. Here are the reasons that swayed me. 1. I`m not through with watches yet, and it has nothing to do with my fashion sense. Sure, my cell phone has the time, but I like to see the time on my wrist. I also don`t like to rely on something that has to be charged all the time and may emit harmful radiation over long-term usage. I want some features available without pulling out my phone. 2. You can get versions of the classic Databank, but they`re $175 (http://www.amazon.com/Casio-DBC150-1-Databank-Digital-Watch/dp/B000GB1R8C/ref=sr_1_8?s=watches&ie=UTF8&qid=1396964551&sr=1-8&keywords=dbc310-1) or $235 (http://www.amazon.com/Casio-DBC310-1-Databank-Discontinued-Manufacturer/dp/B000GAWSBS/ref=sr_1_2?s=watches&ie=UTF8&qid=1396964551&sr=1-2&keywords=dbc310-1), which is really hard to justify out of nostalgia alone. 3. The current Databank watches with calculators (http://www.amazon.com/Casio-Mens-DBC32-1A-Databank-Watch/dp/B000AQVRWO/ref=pd_sim_sbs_watch_1?ie=UTF8&refRID=15X1F27RNZGBHPXP8WH4) lack the countdown timer. I use this feature all the time and can`t imagine why they didn`t put it on there. 4. This one is water-resistant to 50 meters. I had an $8 watch that I`d been wearing for four years until its integrated (non-replaceable) band broke. I washed dishes, swam in pools, under waterfalls, etc., and its 30-m water resistance did just fine. That gives me confidence about this feature that the old Databank watches never had. 5. This is a really decent price. That allowed me to overcome my irritation about two additional points and give this 4 stars. - No schedule alarm text possible. Real bummer, as I mentioned above. - THE ALMOST DEAL-BREAKER: No way to turn off the input beep, that insanity-inducing beep that happens whenever you switch modes or change certain settings. Please, Casio, have mercy! I just want to set a countdown timer in peace. Instead, I have to endure six or seven beeps to get to timer mode, get the timer set, and back to time display. If anyone knows how to turn this off, PLEASE COMMENT AND TELL ME. I`m desperate. This was done in calculator mode on the old Databanks, which obviously doesn`t apply here. There are few other minor things I could gripe about, but I`m happy to be wearing a Databank again. Casio does good work, and I`ll continue wearing their watches as long as they keep providing useful features. Miracle of miracles, I found my old DB150, missing for five years! I put new batteries in it, and the 90s are back for good. The model I`m reviewing above is back in the desk drawer for the next time I`m going swimming. I realize now how much I missed the calculator, the ability to enter text with schedule events, and the SILENT BUTTONS! I will say two things in favor of the DB36 now that I`ve experienced both watches recently: (1) the text, though ugly, is more readable than on the older watch, and (2) it`s nice to have the watch continue displaying the time while you`re in different modes, though sometimes annoying to have to switch back manually.
