Casio updates Fishing Gear line with WS-1500H digital watch: 10-Year Battery, Fishing Mode, Moon Data

Casio Fishing Gear WS-1500H WS-1500

Casio’s Fishing Gear series includes a unique fishing mode function that displays the most suitable times to go fishing (on a five-level scale) based on the location, time and date, and moon transit and phase. The latest model is the digital WS-1500H, which arguably has a nicer design than the previous WS-1200H and WS-1250H, with a G-Shock-inspired case and a cleaner display. It has the same functions as the WS-1200H but is a little larger than its predecessor. With an approximate 10-year battery life and 100-meter water resistance, the WS-1500H offers a lot of value at a very affordable price, but the resin glass is not as durable as the mineral glass found on most G-Shock watches, and the watch lacks the extreme shock resistance of a G-Shock.

The Casio WS-1500H series was launched internationally in December 2022 with the black WS-1500H-1AV, blue WS-1500H-2AV, and brown WS-1500H-5AV. The series is not listed on the Casio America site, but the black and brown models are currently available for pre-ordering directly from Amazon.com, with a January 1 release date. (The previous WS-1200H has a list price of $29.95, and the WS-1500H is currently selling for $26.35 by Amazon.)

The fishing mode feature can also be found on some Pro Trek watches like the PRT-B70, but it is not available on G-Shock watches (other than the GSW-H1000 smartwatch).

Update: The WS-1500H-1AV is “temporarily out of stock” at Amazon, and the WS-1500H-5AV is now showing a release date of February 1, 2023.
