    Confused Can solar storms destroy G's?

    I know if a strong solar storm hits us we have more important things to worry about but would be interested to know if a solar storm can also destroy all G's worldwide in a blink
    I have personally tested G's in 2 Tesla magnetism but this is just magnetism.

    When you say a solar storm do you mean something like a huge power surge like a solar flare? I think yes, it would definitely blow out the circuits and completely destroy all of the electronics inside the watch.

    What kind of event are we talking about here? Something of a magnitude that has never been recorded? I thought the Earth's magnetic field shielded us from solar activity.

    You might get lucky and be on the dark side of the Earth at the time

    I saw a program on television just a few days ago and it said that the Earth's magnetic field is reversing as well as getting much weaker. They said that in geological time in the next few tens of thousand of years, the Earth's magnetic field will disappear. It has something to do with the earth's inner core spitting out the magnetic field.

    I did a little search and the stronger solar storm ever recorded was 200nanoTesla.
    The 2Tesla which I tested them is 2 billion nanoTesla, so nothing to worry

    That's all Greek to me.

    In other words, DimitrisRHO tested a G-Shock under an EM field that was 10 million times stronger than the strongest solar storm ever recorded.

    I think when you are on the sun a storm breaks out it will definitely kill your watch.
