    1/1000 sec. stopwatch

    Has there ever been a G-Shock with a 1/1000 stopwatch-timer. Until it was stolen, I owned a GPX-1000(from 1991) with that feature. But that was not a G-Shock(by the way if you ever see a GPX or GT 1000 you should seriously consider buying it even though its not a G-shock).

    Cool features. To be honest, I haven't really dug into it. I only knew about the 1/1000 s feature on the stopwatch. If it shows mph, it should also show kmph, isn't it?

    Re: 1/1000 sec. stopwatch

    Thanks alot everyone. It's been a year or so since I've been at the forum. Right now I am interested in watches with unusual Chronograph functions. Namely the 1/1000 sec. and also the electronic tachymeter((metre) aka 'speed memory".As to the later; besides the DW6000, recent Giezs also have it. Were there any other G's with this function? I seem to recall a Master of G called the Raceman. Does anyone know anything about it? I think it may be the predecessor of the Giez, but I don't see it mentioned in G-peopleland. As for non Gs the model that stands out, besides the GPX/GT 1000, is the speed memory 100 circa 1991. There was a version with metal case and leather strap that would be worth getting if you can find one.(basic model was AW20). There are some later models with this feature, including AW22 and the current AD301, but they are different.

    With these watches, you enter a lap distance. If the distance is in miles, the speed will be in mph. If you enter the distance in kilos, speed will be Kph.

    Re: 1/1000 sec. stopwatch

    This whole idea is, from a pragmatic perspective, a bit silly. Most people will have tough enough time with their reflexes to be consistent to 1/10 second, maybe 1/20 for a really practiced individual. Add to that the fact that debounce needs to be built into the switching circuitry, and anything beyond that is just fluff.

    Re: 1/1000 sec. stopwatch

    With our first cheesy Beltimes and whatever, back in school, we used to waste time practicing hitting "full" seconds with the stopwatch feature. It can be done fairly reliably but it's been a quarter of a century since I've tried! I concede that the 1/1000 sec. can only ever be a gimmick.
