Casio Men's SGW100 Twin Sensor Digital Watch
About this deal
Featuring a resin band material, the watch is designed to withstand the rigors of outdoor adventures. Its water resistance depth of 200 meters ensures that it can be submerged without getting damaged. However, it is worth noting that the watch is not completely waterproof, so caution should be exercised.
Think of this the same way as using a regular oral glass thermometer. When used in the mouth, the temperature changes because it's touching the body. When left to sit in a jar, in about 20 minutes it will show the room's ambient temperature. What makes the SGW100 the best budget bug out watch?I did not buy the Casio SGW100 (mine is the SGW100B-3V model) for bug out purposes, but the more I examined it, the more I realized that this timepiece really is the best budget bug out watch one could buy. Examples of typical bug out watches True, it's not solar nor does it have atomic timekeeping. The watch has +/- 30 seconds a month for accuracy, so if you assume 1 second gained or lost per day, at worst you will only see the time off by 6 minutes after 1 year of not adjusting the time at all. And that's truly not bad. Certainly better than any mechanical watch. So why did I buy the SGW100? As noted above, I didn't get it for bug out purposes, but rather because it has every single thing I want out of a digital timepiece.
Before I get into the particulars of the SGW100, the timepieces of choice survivalists go for depends on the specific functionality he's looking for.I have a smaller 6.75" wrist. This watch has all that I want and fits me. That's why I bought it. I'm very happy with my SGW100. Great as a bug out watch, but also really good for daily use. The temperature sensor is inside the case of the watch. What this means is that body heat will always make the temperature reading not match what the actual ambient temperature is. To get an accurate reading, the watch must be taken off the wrist and let to stand for 20 minutes so there is no body heat left in the case.
