    Location, how overcast is the sky, building or obstruction within the location can have significant effect on the sync process and duration. It can prolong the sync or even fail to sync altogether. You just need to try again or move to another location.

    Anyway if you stay within the same timezone most of the time, I wouldn't be bother to sync it manually so often. It is a quartz watch which itself should be accurate within 15sec a month. I would likely sync once a fortnight manually but if you work outdoor or are out in the open daily when the conditions are right (i.e. bright sunlight, open space, clear sky), the watch will do an auto sync itself (either for time or time+position depending on situation).

    Also an observation; when I was wearing the beast daily when I first got it, I notice that the auto sync was just for time only. Then I changed to my other watch and did not wear the beast for around 8-10 days and was kept in the dark. When I took it out again and purposely stand in the open to allow it to do an auto sync, it did a T+P sync instead of just time sync. Thus, I believe it was programmed to do a T+P sync if there is not sync activity over a defined period of time. Interesting!

    Re: GPW : "T H E B E A S T" THREAD OF AWESOMENESS - Title says it all.

    Thinking of seriously returning the beast. Whilst I really like the form of the watch I'm much more of a function over form type person and miss the altimeter and barometer functions on the Rangeman. Plus I prefer the resin of the Rangeman and actually feel really confident being rough with it, to the pojnt where I almost want to rough it up just cos its a G.

    The main draw with the GPW 1000 was the GPS as I can't acquire the atomic reception in Australia. I also, like the design aesthetics but for $1000 not sure I can justify it as I'd probably only end up wearing it in situations where I know it won't get roughed up.

    If I do go ahead, was thinking if getting one of those purple PRG270s and maybe a King. I'll wait for the GWG 1000 as my analog Abc watch.

    What do you guys think?

    Sell it if you think it won't get any wrist time. Or just keep it and enjoy it when you're not roughing it up. I have both watches and I love them both.

    I think I'm going to sell it. I've realised I only bought it as I admire its design and tech, but I don't actually like wearing $1000 on my wrist that'll eventually get damaged much to my dismay.

    I think I prefer digital displays anyway.

    Now wondering what pro trek model to try lol.

    Personally I can't imagine selling the Beast, but maybe that's just me. But if you're looking for a Protrek, I would very much recommend the newly released PRW-3500! Check out the ABC forum and you'll see threads on it there. Nothing wrong with the 270, but the 3500 is built way better, and for not too much more money. Plus should you choose to do so you can put a zulu or NATO strap on the 3500 - can't do that on the 270.

    But that 270 can take a fabric strap from Morellato and it is IMO a more comfortable strap; no buckles or rings.
