    G Shock Pathfinder PG240 vs G-Shock Rangeman GW9400-3

    Hey y'all, I am currently in process to be a police officer and I am debating on buying either a G-Shock Pathfinder PG240 or G-Shock Rangeman GW9400-3. I will be wearing it to the academy and through out my career. I know both watches are almost the same but I am not sure which one you guys would recommend. Thank you in advance for the help.

    I have a 250 which is an incremental update to the 240 IMO and I think you will like it more due to the screwbars used on the watch, which allows you to switch the strap to any standard lug strap including NATOs, leather, or even a rubber dive strap.

    That's a good point, thanks for the input. I know that Rangeman has the same function as Pathfinder, but Rangeman looks more simple compares to Pathfinder. Also Rangeman has negative display and I think that's the only differences

    I much prefer the Rangeman personally - probably comes down to aesthetics though. If I were going protrek, I would go with the PRG300, or even better, the PRW3000 or 3100, but those are a bit of a price bump. I think you can get the black Rangeman with the positive display for even less then the green/neg one online.
    Regards.

    practical use, the 240 (, all day. bigger, clean display with big digits; one touch sensor butttons; lower profile. the 240 also has screw bars. some variations of this model even some with a second woven strap. the 250 sacrifices the clean display to make the graph the main feature which reduces the size of the time digits.
    the ranger looks cool but the small digits and sensor display make it less than ideal. the -3 model with its neg display only exacerbates this problem.

    not sure how you see the ranger as looking more simple tho haha take a step back its night and day. if you did want more simple the protrek 270 could be an option, smaller and slimmer than both.
    Yippie kayak other buckets!
