Awesome First G-Shock
on 11 April 2013
This is my first G-Shock and my favorite watch so far.
From a distance it's so dark it looks almost black,
in very bright light it's mild green,
at normal light it's that cool dark military green.
Not the largest G-Shock face, so you'll love it if you have a "programmers' wrist" like I do.
The plastic housing is tricky, it looked cheap for me on some pictures,
but in live it's all different, you can feel the quality and the whole watch looks simply awesome with this color theme.
The bumps on the back are not annoying, you won't feel them as you would think.
They won't really hold the watch off your skin, instead while you move they'll let the space ventilate,
they're there probably to help the liquid flow out when it's wet.
The strap and all the plastic parts feel smooth.
The face has a shiny glass, the negative display is sharp and easy to read.
The backlight is pretty bright, it's visible even in daylight.
Yes, they are hard to press, but that's the sacrifice for the toughness.
Not sure if by time they won't get a bit softer. The function cycle button already feels softer to me.
Another strange thing that it feels easier to push them when the watch is on your wrist.
It has auto lights, so you can set it to lit up when you turn the watch at your face.
Alarm with flash signal,
it won't flash as cool as the one with a white face but it's still a pretty nice feature.
World time, you can set it to display another time zone.
I think I answered all the crucial questions I had before the purchase,
It's the best entry level price/function G-Shock at the moment.
Go ahead and get yours!
