My solar powered Baby G under the Hawaiian water diving for shells
I love the electric blue color of this watch
I am very picky when it comes to buying watches. I can quickly spy and purchase a beautiful bracelet, but when it comes to buying a watch there is more to consider than just looks. I use my sport watches for running, playing outside, swimming, and surfing. I want it to be comfortable, easy to use, and of course stylish! Let's add eco-friendly to the list as well.
You can find all of this in Casio's Baby G solar model watch. Baby-G helps to make the environment a little more "green" by utilizing renewable energy and recycled packaging (how cool!) This new Tough Solar model is not only Eco-Friendly, it’s also smart. The watch has a power saving function to conserve battery power when left in the dark for some duration and has the ability to judge light levels, to know when to activate the Auto EL Backlight.
This is my TOP pick for a fabulous watch. I have swam, surfed, ran, and even shopped wearing this baby blue and I couldn't be more pleased. It is a Mom's Best Bet for $110. Now that I have gone solar, I am hooked!

My classy black Baby G with pink face, getting a tan!
This watch is Baby-G's black resin band with digital dial code and hot pink neon face.
This is a sleek, feminine, and classy watch that exudes style. I have swam with it, but prefer to wear it when I am out because it's so beautiful. It functions similar to the Baby G above but it's not solar powered, which is why it's my #2 pick. However, I have received quite a few compliments on the look and and it is super comfortable. My poor gold watch has just been sitting along in my jewelry box, completely neglected because I am now in love with my Baby G! This is also a Mom's Bets Bet for $130. I am a new big fan of Casio's Baby G line!
