    3 Questions About the GW-5600J

    It looks like a good (and popular) watch, but I have a few concerns.

    1. Digit size. Are they large, as they are on the MTG or G2800?

    2. In the pictures it just displays the day of the week. Can it also show the day and date?

    3. The push buttons seem to be the old school metal ones - not the larger plastic ones. Do they have a good feel, or are they too small and hard to push?

    Thanks.

    Hey!

    The GW-5600J is an awesome watch.

    I like mine a lot

    Regarding your questions:

    - The digits are large and very good to read, I would say the digits on this watch are the best of all my digitals. I don´t know in the comparison to the MTG or G2800 but maybe someone here can post a picture.

    - In time mode, you can push the upper left button and you can choose between showing the day or day and date display.

    - The push buttons have a perfect feel - personal I like it more than plastic buttons.

    Over all like i said before: Awesome watch you can´t go wrong with it.

    Hope that helped.

    All the best.

    Thanks, Sharpie. Does anyone know how high the countdown timer can be set to? I couldn't find that.

    I enjoy mine a lot. I like it's clean display without the red and blue lettering.
    It's a Solar Atomic value at just $64 USD, mine syncs perfectly every night.



    This ones also nice, the basic DW5600E. The multicolored lettering is not too bad and you get a bit of a different look.
    The least expensive at just $35 USD, it's a battery powered bargain!

    Hey, those are great pics!!

    Does anyone have or know of anyone that has the DW5600M-1CR??

    A review on amazon said that the buttons were very hard to push. I was thinking of picking up this one but now I'm not sure. I'm thinking it was just a fluke.

    Thanks,

    I really like it and the pics thereof! But in the UK I can't find it at all, and Ebay is showing around £100. Where's the best place to buy one?
