If it wasn't so good looking I would unload it. Hopefully a 2A pops up for sale once these go on sale...
    You can always dump the unwanted Maharishi MM to me LOL

    Re: NEW GRAVITYMASTER GPW-2000

    Now that someone provided the size of this watch I have lost interest. It is a bit annoying that, except for the MRG, all of the mid grade Gs' are being made in extremely large sizes.

    That being said, the lack of a bracelet turned me off. No idea why, on my regular watches I really like a strap; however, on Gs' I like bracelets. I think it is that I don't like the plastic strap.

    I'm really interested, but the fact that is larger then the GWG-1000 makes it pretty immense. Going to have to wait for some wrist shots on this one before I can even consider it.

That could be a major inconvenient factor for this watch.
    no more than it would affect watches like the bluetooth ga400's and the gdx's which arent solar at all. id say it would be just a blip of info being sent to the phone like a BT mouse or keyboard. im also sure therell be plenty of warnings in the manual about it too... that ppl wont read then come here to complain about haha

    On a side note, I don't get the whole triple sync. It's just another thing that can break to me. I just want accurate time I don't have to think about and set when I travel or DST. I don't need syncing from towers to devices to coffee makers, etc. Seems a bit of overkill to me.
    its just fail safe options (and to show off some tech on a flagship model) no different than being able to check the weather on your phone, internet, tv or newspaper. they all have that info but if you dont have access to one or the other theres at least other options. simply better to have a back up option no?

    ps. syncing to the towers for multiband (or satellite for gps) is no different than getting a signal for your radio or tv. its just there.

    because gps is for time syncing only (for now) not for finding locale positioning of your watch

    Yes sure - but to be clear, I'm not expecting the GPS module to do the direction finding or even to do location measurement beyond what it needs for time zone determination - I'm just wondering why is a watch with both a compass module and a GPS time module so elusive? Would they interfere with each other in some way I'm not aware of?
