Good Cheap But Basic G Shock
on 3 February 2017
I've now had this watch for around a month to replace an old G Shock that lasted for 11 years which still worked but had persished after being taken all over the world to the extent that the strap had been replaced and the case had fell apart. Rather than do a triggers broom I thought I would buy a new one.
This watch was reasonably priced and provided all the functions I required, namely it tells the time, but also has a clockface and digital display, date, timer and stopwatch. It was easy enough to set up and will be good enough for use at work and play without being fancy enough to wear at a night out (not that you couldnt). The clock body feels as robust as I would expect from G Shock and I dont think it is unreasonably to say that this will last as long as my old one.
Two negatives to this watch are the strap, which I feel is not as solid as a typical plastic G Shock strap and will likley need to be replaced quicker (thats not scientifically proven) (it can also smell (in hot weather) if not washed regularly) and the small digital display. The display is not a problem for me but its something you should be aware of if you are looking to buy it.
Overall, for the price I paid, I am more than happy with the watch and it will do exactly what I want from it, but it is basic!
