With the advent of smartphones and smart watches, the data bank watches like calculator watches lost their popularity and are now mostly a fashion statement. Today, Casio sells data bank models with basic data bank functions. Data bank models having unique features are highly sought after by watch collectors.[5]

As of 2020, Casio sells the following models of the data bank; the DBC-611 and the DBC-32, which provide data storage, calculation and schedule capabilities, the DB-380 and the DB-36/360 which provide data storage capabilities. All models allow for a selection of multiple languages.[6]
