    Daylight and neg. displays

    Are the legible in daylight? I would think it wouldn't be.

    Yes, they appear to be. Riley's trio seem fine, and many with the latest neg displays are about to confirm the same

    Well in theory if they are harder to read inside versus a positive display then in my opinion it would be worse outside.

    It is fading light that compromises the visibility of negative displays.

    In strong light the modern negative displays are only slightly less visible than the positive displays.

    It would be pretty silly to make a watch that wasn't readable anywhere

    agreed

    based on my experience the G-7710 and G-7800 are during daylight even better to read than some positive displayed g-shock's.

    Just ran a side by side with GW-M5600's. The negative display is more subdued than the positive, but no less legible. The reflections are stronger on the negative, more mirror effect, so a little more arm movement to find the right look.

    If anything, I'd say that neg. displays are less legible at night. I have a DW-6900MS which (without the EL) is damn-near impossible to read at night/in darker rooms.
