    That certainly would be a way to do it, so that it doesn't threaten the ProTreks. However, if the ProTreks now get the better AB module (1 m increments, faster reading times), wouldn't that imply that the G is inferior to the ProTrek? In terms of market shares the G trounces any ProTrek.

    Good enough for me! I have to e-mail Seiya, Higuchi and Chino.

    If it does have a compass, I think it will show your orientation only digitally (in degrees). I think that eye on the dial would only be for some sort of altitude (or maybe pressure) reading. I personally would rather have some sort of analog compass, like all the ProTreks have, because I'm kind of mentally impaired and it takes longer for me to translate a degree reading into directions.
    The eye on the dial probably shows barometric pressure and changes in altitude (rising or falling) and direction of north, all depending on which mode you are in. Then, specific meaningful number data (such as pressure, degrees, etc) would be displayed on the digital display

    The "5th light button" looks an awful lot like the led signal on the 8000s 😯 I'm intrigued.

    Must be some kind of "design" thing. The look aweful to me and I think the whole watch looks unbalanced.

    The big difference between an analog and a digital watch:

    - An analog watch is an interpreter (about 10-11 minutes to eleven)
    - A digital watch leaves no room for interpretation but only facts (10:58:50)

    So they could sell you some extras when you lost them.

    Looks huge. Unfortunately I have smaller wrists and that just won't work for me. I'll probably just get the PRW-3000 as it seems nice and compact.

    Re: Rangeman: what do we know so far?

    Hi there,

    Yes indeed - the new G-Shock Rangeman looks like a cracker.

    This will be the very first triple-sensor G-Shock.
    1) Alti-Baro
    2) Compass
    3) Thermo

    The light down the bottom is Super Illuminator. The rugged button on the right is to access your sensors. The top display (where it says "Sun" will be a multi-graphic display (to show alt/baro info). The multi scope eye will also assist with alti,comp, timer stw, alarm etc). The band will be a carbonfiber band. And yes - this will be Multiband 6, Tough Solar. It will also have a "Sunrise and Sunset" feature on it. Comes with 48 city time zones. Also - a 40 memory recall.

    Launch: October 2013.

    Model: GW9400

    It'll come in two different colour variations:

    Do you happen to know the case size?

    Re: Rangeman: what do we know so far?

    Basically it's a fusion of Riseman layout with compass and left-over buttons from A1100.

    It seems that if you put a GW-9200 and a GW-A1100 in a honeymoon trip and you will get this GW-9400 (?) 9 months later.
