    Question Curiosity - Which G-Shock model has the most functions?

    Just bought a G-Shock, the G-7700-1, it arrived the other day, a "cheapie" I guess even by Casio G-Shock standards. I bought it off a user from a different forum as I liked the look and it was priced too well too resist but I didnt really researched all the functions. Now that I am browsing the user manual...over 50 pages of it...I am amazed at how many functions this packs. My only other G-Shock is the GW-056A, a great model on itself that I like and the only G-Shock I haven't flipped over the years - I had few others - but this G-7700 takes the cake for the tons of features I'm seeing it has.

    So I was wondering...I'm sure there are people that are what could be called experts in G-Shocks 'round these forums so if you are one of them, this question is for you:
    - Which G-Shock model(s) have the most functions of all?

    I'd have to guess that the Rangeman has the most, off the top of my head.

    +1. I also believe that the Rangeman has hit the sweet spot of Durability/Functionality/Value in modern watches. I own one, and recommend it frequently.

    Wow, lotsa functions indeed in the Rangeman. Its got all of the stuff my old PRG-40 used to have plus some other.

    Unfortunately way too big for my wrist size :(

    Just looking over Casio's homepage now...amazing the diversity of the G-Shocks they make nowadays, must be over 100 in there:

    Then you should think about the PRW-3000, same watch functionality in smaller case.

    G-7700/7710, G-7800, GW-9400(Rangeman) and all of bluetooth GB-xxxx series(same module same functions) have most functions among all g-shocks. I actualy make exel sheet with comparison of functions. It's a shame that GW-9400 don't have 1/1s CDT.

    Wow -- nice job with that chart!

    That deserves to be "stickied" or saved somewhere like the "G-Shock Resources" thread.

    If Rangeman had moon/tide and that 2nd time zone function, like GX-56 has for example, where you press a button and you get 2nd time zone instead of day/date, it would have pretty much everything that g-shock has to offer

    Yes, but I doubt they will ever build a G with all the functions, because they (Casio) don't want us to just buy one.

    What?! I had three G-77XX series and I never knew the colored led's could be selected to show only one color or the other. How many else knew that?
