I need a watch that I can wear 24/7 and use as an alarm clock. Style isn't important. My requirements are:
* A good alarm (strong or persistent enough to wake me) preferably with repeat and snooze
* Cheap (say, under $50)
* Metal case and strap (resin straps break on me very quickly)
* Long life battery /or solar
* Safe to wear in shower
* Decent night ligh
Other stuff, such as dual time, multiple alarms, etc., would be nice, but not at the cost of the features above.
I guess a Casio is most likely to fit the bill, but I believe many Casios have soft alarms.
