Just got my Blue Riseman from amazon.com for 129.99.
I must say the blue Riseman looks a lot better in real life than internet screen shots. The blue, the white letters, red buttons, and the black metal all blend together perfectly. This watch reminds me of Papa Smurf.
I was worried the numbers on the dial will be difficult to read, but that fear is incorrect. It is easy to read the numbers in a normal well lit room. Granted, it is not as easy to read as regular G-Shocks in a dim setting, but that is what the back light is for.
The model I got has solar power but no multi band. That is fine with me because I never felt the need for atomic timing.
The strap feels softer and more secure than the strap on my 6900. There are small slits near the top of the watch, a nice design feature that improves air flow.
Compared to a lot of G-shocks, this Riseman is relatively cheap. If you like the color blue, give this G shock a try.
