You see, there are precisely a billion of these small Casio digital watches out there and while the F91W is the most popular, there are many more modern alternatives that look just like it. My question is, are any of them better?
Well, today we find out. I tracked down 5 of the most similar models to take a look at in this roundup, you’ll find each of them linked in this article. Thanks to Amazon for covering the cost of these for this review.
Rather than taking forever and talking you through each one, we’ll go section by section. Let’s begin with size and looks, then we’ll move on to the performance differences compared to the original.
The most visually similar to the F91 is the W-59. This one has a similar shape and almost identical colour scheme with only some minor differences. It’s a fraction deeper and has more traditional style lugs, though at a glance most people would struggle to notice any difference. On-wrist, they feel virtually identical.
Next up, we have the F105; this looks very similar again, just is a little larger overall and has a primarily blue theme. In a blind test with each separate, you’d still be hard-pressed to differentiate them when it comes to size, as it’s only a couple of millimetres bigger and both are still small watches.
