OK watch for sports…for looks great
The watch looks great….love the way it looks and how it feels on the wrist….very lite and comfortable…..
there are only two brands of watches that i buy, G-Shock (casio) and Fossil.
There are some down falls to this watch though if you are using it as a sports watch and your training.
First…when you are in stopwatch mode or timekeeping mode, the watch doesnt display the actual time
In timekeeping mode, you can only set the hour and minutes, but not the seconds and there is no auto repeat….
the light looks great, but since its lit up by two LED lights the bottom portion of the display is brighter than the top portion, unlike EL lit g-shock where the entire screen lights up evenly (could just be my watch).
Looks great and is easy to read for it being a negative display
This watch is extremely durable and surprisingly very light. At times you can barely tell you have it on. It comes with everything a G-Shock would come with if purchased from the store; the nice tin case, owners manual, warranty information, and serial number card. The only thing that I can consider to be a ‘Con’ would be the fact the owners manual is about the size of a match book so its difficult to read, but you can download a PDF version from G-Shock so its not a problem.
Functionally COOL !
This watch is not only good looking but functional too. At first I was hesitant for 2 reasons:
1) this watch does not have waveceptor (automatic atomic clock timekeeping). This is a non issue. It has kept perfect time for 3 months & matches my other waveceptor watch without losing a second!
2) some reviews say the watch is hard to see. This is a total non-issue. The watch is easy to see in all light. Turn on the auto illumination feature & in low lights it will backlight! – Don’t worry the solar recharging battery can easily keep up with the backlight with everyday exposure to ambient light.
People comment on how cool the watch looks & it’s bigger than the regular Casios but not clown big. This is one tough looking modern blackout watch !
Great watch for a chef.
I’m a professional chef and keeping track of time is a huge deal for me in a fast paced kitchen. This watch definitely delivers. A major plus is the led light you can switch on for reading the time in the dark. It’s much brighter than other G-shock models.
This watch is great. I only wear it at work and I have had zero issues not one complaint. Great Product a must buy!
My favorite G Shock thus far
Good G-shock. I’ve had 4 previous G shocks. This one seems better overall. Face is large which I like. Backlight is even and bright. I beat my watches up and this one seems as good as any in terms of durability. Highly recommend.
I have a old G shock watch that I use in the yard now and this one is going out and doing things that is not in the yard. Nice watch and has all the items that I wanted.
Police Officer/Military friendly
Great for military and law enforcement. Offers durability, withstands the beating from operations and normal duties, offers night time concealment, light activated only when user wishes. No glowing or reflective parts, offering great law enforcement and or military safety.
Just got this watch delivered, and I must say, I absolutely love it. Easy to function, battery life is a non issue (solar charged), display can clearly be seen in light or dark (contrary to what some have said) and a nice big face on the watch really makes it "pop"! I get compliments on the looks of the watch everyday. I absolutely recommend this watch if you’re looking for a tough watch.
