This is my first G-Shock and I was fairly apprehensive given that I had chosen to buy one of the most expensive Casio watches. When it arrived I was more then happy with the watch I received. I thought the watch might have been too large for my wrist, and while the watch is big, the fact the watch is offset on the wristband changes the proportions and makes it 'wear' smaller then it is, in my opinion. I get the impression that most of the higher end G-Shock watches have the same functions, so I think you might be able to get a cheaper watch that has the same functions as this watch. However, I'm really happy with the watch that I have, and would recommend it in a heart beat to others looking to buy the Frogman.
