Durable build and good features
on 8 June 2016
Absolutely brilliant. I'd always wanted a G-Shock, and this one is brilliant. The resin strap and casing seems really durable having taken the watch swimming I can confirm it is fully waterproof. After wearing it every day for a few weeks, I haven't noticed any irritation or rubbing, it's quite comfortable and the strap can be big made big enough to fit large wrists. As the face is bigger than normal, I wasn't sure how it would look on my wrist, but it looks fine.
There are loads of digital functions to use, and once you've read the instructions on how to use the buttons it's not too complicated, although I have had to check back a few times. What I really like is how the analogue hands keep sync with the digital time, and if you change the time zone the hands will turn to match it.
The only issue I've had is that because the LCD displays are inverted (so the digits are grey and the screen black) it can be hard to read in bright light. Also, the built in light to illuminate the face is quite weak but works fine in the dark, although it is difficult to see the LCD displays.
I would definitely recommend this watch to those looking for a really durable and stylish watch with plenty of features.
