    Display on the G9000 Mudman

    Hey so Iím looking to buy a G9000 Mudman, but I have doubts regarding the viewing angles of the display (the black and red coloured model with a positive display).

    I already own a G5600e square model and the main problem with it is the terrible viewing angles, I really donít like them.

    Also, any other problems I should look out for the G9000 mudman (apart from the hard buttons).

    Thanks in advance!

    Some folks donít like the 6 bumps on the back



    The display is normal.

    Yeah, the display was fine, but the bumps were noticeably uncomfortable.

    Sad because otherwise this was my favorite.

    The GLS-6900 is a decent substitute, but a tad wider, so not as wearable.

    Thanks for the pics!
    Also if it’s not too to ask do you have such pics for the g5600e since I wanna know is that a problem with my unit or a general one because I couldn’t read much on the screen if I was writing on a table with my right hand and just took a quick glance at my watch on my left hand (which was kinda at an angle tho not much)

    Yeah I’ve heard about the bumps I hope it won’t be that bad. Do they indent your skin?

    Also do those bumps prevent your skin from sticking to the metal backplate when you sweat because other gshocks have that problem and I hope the gap in this one the mitigates that.

    to dudes who have troubles with the bumps, it`s because you wear it too tight

    Gshock is meant to be worn loosely - that`s Japanese`s zen philosophy -

    don`t hold material things in life TIGHTLY, except your beers and memories

    Honestly, if all the rest of the parameters are the same I would love that watch, but regardless, that model isn’t available in my country (India).

    I don’t wear it that tight (can slide 2 fingers between the band and my under side of the arm with not much force) but I can’t wear them too loosely because some gshocks imo are too heavy for that. They start dangling way too much with a lot of force and kinda hurt

    The MudMan is a nice watch....if your budget allows, I'd consider the RangeMan (GW-9400). For the $100 increase, you get solar power with atomic timekeeping (radiowaves calibrate the time daily), barometer, altimeter, sunrise/sunset times (very accurate), and a thinner case (by 2mm) and no bumps. I've never had an issue with angle on the RangeMan. The solar power and atomic timekeeping alone are worth the price increase IMO. Either way, you'll come out a winner with a GShock.

    Not my picture.
