    Alarm question

    I recently purchased a GW6900BC and was playing around trying some of the settings. I've set my alarm, snooze and hourly modes to on and set my alarm time for 6:00am, but I don't hear anything at the alarm time I set. Is the alarm tone so quiet that it's hard to hear? Also, the manual says to test the alarm, press the D button, which does nothing except change to another mode.

    Well, it seems my alarms work, just can't hear the tone unless the watch is close to my ears. Definately not loud enough to wake me up. I guess I had too optimistic expectations.

    Yes, most G-Shocks are useless as far as the alarm is concerned. There's only a few that can wake me up:
    G-7900
    G-7710
    G-3010 or G-3011
    GX-56 is also quite loud but I never used it to wake me up so far.

    cheers, Sedi
