    The 12-Gs for April. GW-300

    G-Shock for April. GW-300



    Phew, don't know what happened yesterday. I must have walked into a reality distortion field.

    For those of you following along at home, I have been wearing one G-Shock a month for a year. April's G-Shock is the hated and revered GW-300.



    It's big, it's round, it has red highlights (I like red) and it has some fantastic features. Why the hate? Well, a bunch of these have either had a bad rechargeable battery, a bad module, or both. There are stories of perfectly fine watches malfunctioning for no apparent reason, and repaired watches crashing. Fortunately mine has been going strong for about three years and will hopefully keep going for many more.



    The two main features on this watch are the solar cell that recharges the watch's battery and Casio's Waveceptor technology which receives a time signal broadcast from Colorado in the United States of America. With these two features the watch should never need a new battery nor need to be reset.

    This was my first G-Shock and I'm looking forward to wearing it this month as it has been out of the rotation for awhile. Stay tuned for more.

    I like those red accents too, and the digits.



    Good to see you back into reality!
