    Casio G Shock And The Weather?

    I was wondering if anyone know for sure at what degrees will my Casio G shock cease to working? I know that the FROG-MAN and RAYS-MAN will still work in very low temperature (-20). Mechanical wrist watches also works better then it quartz equivalent, because mech-watches has no circuit that can be shorten. I was hoping that you guys can also recommend so other G Shock that offer that kind of protection against the elements?, as I often go camping with friends and Melbourne weather can be very unperdicable:-S
    :thanks THANK-YOU FOR ALL YOUR HELP:thanks

    Hi Pablo -

    I think Mick meant "Camping".

    It was I'm sure a typing error

    Lets put it this way. At either end of the spectrum, you will suffer more harm than your watch;) If your hand/wrist is exposed at -20 celcius(G-Shock operating limit in cold)frost bite will set in quite quickly. At temeperatures above 45 celcius(I believe a G-Shock can operate with no issues at temperatures well over 60 celcius)heat stroke and heat cramps are inevitable. Condtitions encountered while camping are a walk in the park for a G-Shock:-D

    who knows what's going to happen after a few drink is downed .. lol

    and i agree with G-Shock: if you can take it, the watch can take it as well

    to make it sounds worse than it is: you'll be long gone before the watch quites (which we don't want to see happening):-D
