A super cool nerd watch from Casio. This deal of the day is $49.99 (50% off the $100 retail price). Sale ends at midnight tonight (EST). February 20, 2010
Geeks of the world unite and synchronize your watches! Today’s deal of the day is a special one just for you. It comes from the king of all geeky watches, Casio. Specific make: green Casio G-Shock G-Lide Digital Sport’s Watch. I’ll be 100% honest with you. I own this watch. I really do, and I love it. My girlfriend got it for me for Christmas. Before I bought it, I was the coolest man alive. Which made me the lamest man alive since these days being cool is not cool. But the moment I put this watch on, things changed. I started wearing thick-rimmed vintage glasses, I rolled my pants up and wore penny loafers without socks, I started drinking herbal tea, and my iPod has nothing but Weezer, The Pixies, They Might Be Giants, Moby, and MC Hammer (so lame, it’s cool). It was my magical transformation from lame-cool to cool-geek. Buy this watch, and this magical transformation could happen for you, too. This Casio comes with a lot of really geeky features that you’ll never need for day-to-day living but you still want anyway just for the “awesome tech” factor. Features like tide and moon data, shock resistance, world time, multiple alarms, indiglo, time signals, flash alerts and more. So yea, a lot of nerdy features. When my girl bought it, she paid full retail price from Amazon. Now, two months later, JomaDeals is selling it for 50% off (I could have bought the soon to be released Final Fantasy 14 with that money). Coincidence? No. My boss hates me and waited until it was too late to return the watch I paid full price for before he offered it online for less. But luckily, you don’t have to suffer. Buy today before midnight, and have fun geeking out with the features when it arrives. (Demetri Martin. Just thought I’d throw that out there for no reason)

Casio Computer Company was founded in Tokyo in 1946 by the Kashio family. Four Kashio brothers--Toshio, Kazuo, Tadao, and Yukio--and their father founded a company that was to be managed under a "spirit of creation"; the company philosophy remains "creativity and contribution."
The name Casio is an anglicized version of Kashio, demonstrating that from the beginning the company was acutely aware of the economic significance of international marketing.
Rising from being a pioneer in the invention and advancement of calculators, Casio has become the leader in digital communication and advanced technology.
Casio has been well known for the huge variety and innovation of their watches almost since the beginning of production. They were one of the first watch companies to manufacture the now famous quartz crystal watches. The quartz watches produced by Casio were available in both digital and analog styles. It is possible that the most well remembered watch produced by this company was the calculator watch.
Casio watches are some of the most advanced, useful, practical, and most durable timepieces in the world.
