    Buying my first G-Shock.

    Hello everyone.

    I've been carrying your run of the mill Timex's up till now. Most have been presents. The nicest watch I've had so far was some old Silver Adidas watch that was analog style. I can't even find what model it is. I've been looking at picking up a beginner G-shock as I prefer digital watches. From what I've read I was sort of stuck between a DW9052 or a DW6900. However I need a watch that can keep different alarm times. My school has a weird schedule and I start school at a different time almost every day of the week. From what I have read the neither of the above two models allow you to have more than a daily alarm. Can anyone recommend a good starter G-shock that has customizable alarms and would be preferably under $100-150?

    Sincerely, Josh.

    A great starter G-Shock would be a GW5600J.

    It's solar powered, atomic time, and has 4 daily alarms including a snooze alarm.

    And it's under 100 dollars.

    Get the GW-M5600 for under $100:-LINK
    I got this watch a couple of days ago for £65 (about $120) after many recommendations on this very forum - it really is fantastic watch. Solar atomic and has five daily alarms I believe (something you were after).

    This is my favorite G. The GW5600-BCJ. The best features are the reverse display illumination and composite bracelet. Atomic solar and about 100usd.

    I agree with the previous recommendations, GW5600J or GW5600BCJ1. I liked the first one so well that I picked up the other one as well.

    Hello everyone. I like the suggestions, but I am more fond of a round watch face. The 5600 is too rectangular for me. Any recommendations?

    I think the G7700 or G7710 would be a good choice for you. It has lots of good features, including good alarm features.
