    This amazing Armitron G style blows me away!

    I don't know if this picture really does it justice, but this has been my most worn watch literally over the past 12 months. I have seen it on a couple of co-workers and every time I do it's like, wow. What an amazing looking watch. Why didn't I wear mine today? It looks like just a typical G style copy, but it's actually slightly smaller. So it's really NOT a G style. It's got it's "own" style and appearance due to the size. It looks very sporty for some reason. Sporty and fashionable at the same time. Unique from anything else.

    The one thing I would caution is the one with green accents. Because part of the case is green too (have no idea why) and it doesn't look nearly as great as this model. So stick with the black and orange, which is really all black.

    You can't go wrong with this price, which is available at discount in many Walmarts. Highly recommended.

    Have you taken it swimming yet? Don't....as you will be getting a Real G-Shock on the way home.

    G-Shocks have glass crystals that resist scratching better than plastic you have.

    Please clarify. Is this from your own personal experience? I mean seriously, Casio makes some durable watches but it doesn't have a monopoly on it.

    Amazon even offers gift-wrap for the watch, more shock protection then.

    Probably not from experience. It's called brand worship. If you even question the superiority of Casio it's proof that you are not a true believer.

    Well, the truth is if Casio had made a watch like this a this price I probably would have bought one.

    At the risk of sounding like a fanboi, I just don't find that Armitron all that appealing. If the OP likes it he's welcome to his opinion, but it doesn't do much for me.

    I know what you mean. As far as most Armitron goes in general, I would agree with you. But I do come across some that I like on occasion. And as a result I have found that their quality, features and price are better than Timex. At least the digital Timexes.
