Just bought one of these. 10 year battery, great light, large numbers, 100m. Not a g shock but still tough.

This is the cheapest price any where, but only one left. If you get a free trial membership for 30 days, it's free delivery. Just remember to cancel membership any time before the 30 days are up.

This watch gets great reviews as one of the best budget casio watches.

I do :D. If I'm out walking or on the bike I keep my phone on airplane mode to preserve battery in case of emergency. It's buried safely in my pack. I consider it part of my survival gear.

Having a watch is good with navigation; eg on foot I average 10min a km if I'm on a trail. This helps me confirm on map where I should be. If I am looking for a track after 1km and I find one within 5min, that adds to the information that the track is probably not the one I want. As you know, there are generally more tracks than what a map shows. Lots of other uses too of course, esp. re decision making.
