    Any difference in the 2 models?

    Hi, does any bros here know if there's any other difference in the GW-S5600-1JF n the GW-S5600B-1JF other than the positive vs negative display n white prints vs red/yellow prints on the carbon fiber band?

    They are the same. However, be warned, the negative display is very hard to read when on the wrist. Cheers, Bill P.

    Awh.... And the more cool looking red/yellow carbon fiber band is harder to read...

    I usually don't like negative display, but I would make an exception for this watch.

    You can only swap the module if you absolutely want the positive display, swapping the band alone won't work.

    There is also the red border on the negative display. I used to have the positive display version. The only thing I didn't like was that the band was EXTREMELY glossy and would reflect back all light that hit it. It looked like glass. Pretty cool if you're into that sort of thing, but I like my watches matte.

    Also, the negative display version is much harder to find, and usually much more expensive when you do find it. I think Casio made very few of the negative version and stopped production on it. I am not convinced they stopped production on the positive version. It is kind of like the GW-5000 and GW-5000B in that respect. Very few of the negative version out there, but the positive version is easier to find and Casio still seems to be making them.,

    Ohh yes,.. It's the whole package that attracts me to lean towards the 5600B the red border n that red/yellow on the carbon strap, except the negative display, i have a few negative display, which by far still not too hard to read... Thus still cant nake up my mind...
