Everyday Diver: Casio Duro Watch
Joshua Wussow 11.02.17
At just below $45, the Casio Duro Diver is one of the best budget-minded, outdoor-friendly watches on the market. While it may lack some features found in high-end wilderness wearables, it makes up for it with rugged construction and a reputation for duro-bility. (See? It’s right there in the name!)
“Wait,” you say, “Didn’t you just review a Casio?” Why, yes, thanks for remembering. However, there are several differences between the Tough Solar and the Duro. Besides the $10 price increase, there’s the case material, feature set, illumination, and accuracy to consider.
If you’re looking for a solid, dependable watch for less than $50, it’s hard to do better than these two. But, for my money, the Duro is the better long-term option. It’s rugged nature and muscular look will keep it in my collection for years to come.
