    Any G-Shocks to avoid?

    It's an awfully big line, have any of them proven to be "duds?"

    subjectively, there are plenty of models which divide opinions, based on looks or function set or both.

    I remember reading threads about a battery life issue with a 5600 model from quite a bit back - otherwise nope.

    I believe Coler is referring to the G5600. Quite a few people here had issues w/ the module.

    I'm pretty sure that was the one - its just a vague recollection for me as I didn't own one but I saw the threads.

    Thanks for the replies so far. If I go G Shock (I'm debating between that and a Timex Adventure Tech Shock), I'll get a solar atomic, so battery life shouldn't be a problem.

    Don't worry about quality issues - you'd be very unlucky to have an issue with a new G-Shock (or, I imagine, a Timex) decide what you want out of the function set and/or looks and pull the trigger with confidence.

    yep, this one gave some problems to many people. but today you can get the gw-m5600 for a nice price and it has all the g5600 has and more IMO

    Frankly the problem is that once you own one then you want another and, another and... but quality wise from my experience and what I have read and learned here (being this forum one of the nicest with the best bunch of knowledgeable people, not counting me, of course!), NON. They are built like a tank!!
    It is more a matter of taste and the functions that you want.

    Let put it this way!...

    G-shocks are the only products that I never care about where I buy it from regarding their warranty terms and such stuff


    I simply do not expect a G-shock to fail on me, and so far one never did!

    They are probably the best quality for money that money can buy!
