I thought I'd add my pictures to this thread. My GLX-150-7 arrived yesterday:
I found it tough to get some decent shots on the fly this morning. The display just was not picked up well by my pretty mediocre iPhone 3GS camera. I really like the color it is slightly off-white, closer to a light "bone" type color, with a slight, slight tint of pink. (That doesn't make the watch look "pink" in any way; it just softens the white.) It has a matte finish which will clearly get dirty pretty quickly, but looks less garish (on a male arm, in particular) than a glossy white finish. (Just to be clear -- I wear glossy white watches as well, from time to time. Even though I don't think they are the best color against my reasonably pale skin.)
I've always been a fan of the G-Lide models -- even though I don't surf and make no use of the "tide" functions beyond looking at them.
This module has a nice, robust feature set -- a "time" mode; a "tide" mode; a "world time" mode nicely described above; a 24 hour STW with an "auto-start" function (essentially a five second countdown); a 24 hour CDT with an auto-repeat function and "progress beepers" (that can be toggled on and off) as well as the standard countdown end beeper; an Alarm mode with and hourly-chime that can be toggled on and off and threeprogrammable alarms (one with "snooze" function) -- the alarms can be set daily, or for a specific date, or for one-month (the alarm will sound every day during the set time only during the designated month), or monthly (the alarm will sound every month on the time and date designated). Illumination is done with a bright blue LED -- which can be set to either 1.5 or 3 seconds. Auto-EL can also be activated - this will light up the watch when you turn your wrist.
