A welcome and possibly alternative choice in the G-Shock line-up. Has good looks, is well made, with a good feature set. A compact diametric size, with titanium components, add up to a sure fire winner.
Has a nice clear display, showing the important information for day to day wear. The usual stop watch, timer, world time and alarm variations are included.
I like the additions of the 'multi band 6' (Waveceptor) feature, as well as the nice little touches, such as the titanium parts, auto back light, mute tone, and the fact it has a solar panel incorporating the ingenious power save function and its battery power state indicator. All add to its appeal for me.
Not all that sure of the tide and moon functions, nor does the 10th of a second indicator appeal that much. If they're something that you need in a watch, then go for it. Otherwise, if you can live with and ignore them, its no big deal.
Very comfortable and light to wear. Operation is easy and straightforward, with the instruction booklet covering 100 pages of easy to digest English.
Quality and construction of materials are high, although testing the resilience and durability of the watch by throwing it out of the bedroom window or running over it with your daddy's car is a little bit silly. Wearing it day to day and for activities suited to its use, will enable it to serve you well enough.
To sum up then. A great all rounder in style, quality and value, with the necessary features to keep most of us happy. Its worthy of serious consideration and therefore highly recommended.
