Casio Accelator ACL-200

Today's watch is an unusual model by Casio with a name which defies definition.

The watch is called the Accelator by Casio and is a sports model. The name Accelator doesn't appear to have a real definition, but is found in anime (Power Accelator Boots in Shichisei Tōshin Guyferd), a brand name of a clarifier, and various other products, as well as the Casio watch.

It looks to be a watch designed for runners with lots of sports related features. It has a stopwatch with a 50 lap memory, a playback for past runs, what looks like a stimulation mode for planning a run (up to a marathon based on the text on the display), a timer mode, and of course an alarm.

It uses an LCD display with 2 lines of digits. The bottom line is larger and covers the time (with 6 digits). The top line has a 6 digit display (for date and timing) along with a small dot matrix array (12x5) which is used for the day and other required text.

The watch case has a slightly unusual design which looks more like a stopwatch shape. Timing functions are operated by the two buttons on the front, while the side buttons cover mode, light, and data search.

The model number is ACL-200, and it has a Casio 1531 module. It seems to be am uncommon model, and many that are for sale are listed as rare (in Japan or elsewhere).
