    No, the feature is too clunky to be really useful. It actually annoys me that my 2310 has it!
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    I love the data memory feature!

    I use it quite often to input quick memos or other info. For example, if I need to do the laundry one day at no specific time, I might just input that as a reminder in my data memory feature. Unlike an alarm, which reminds you to do something at the exact time, the data memory gives me a flexible reminder that can be accessed whenever necessary. Its pefect for remembering things over a long period of time.

    Yes, I do use the data feature.
    I have a G-7000D (solar, telememo, 5 multi-dat/date alarms, stainless steel bracelet). Pretty much the same feature set as teh G-2310 that you can get at Wal-Mart.

    I store phone numbers, data, and the text to remind me why an alarm I set is going off.

    I don't carry a cell phone nor a PDA. I like that the G-Shock watch is
    - strapped to my wrist-- difficult to misplace or lose
    - can take a beating if need be
    - waterproof
    - there on my person when I need it

    Phone numbers:
    With no cell phone or PDA, I store emergency, seldom used, and common phone numbers. I also store my telephone long distance calling card number.

    Numeric Codes
    - alarm codes
    - emergency credit card number
    - ??
    - calling card phone number and lengthy passcode

    Alarms:
    To 5 of the Telememo slots, I assign them with a starting number in the 8-character text-field with 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 to be assigned to the 5 alarms on this G-7000D watch. I can then cross-reference the alarm and telememo to each other so I have an alarm with a text message. I have several appointments that I track this way:

    Telememo:
    1Dentist
    2Orthodo
    3Car
    4Optomit
    5xxxxxxx

    I then put the actual appointment time in the Telememo spot usually reserved for the phone number. And, I use the fields in the Telememo that normally display the year and mo/date when in the Time-Keeping mode for the date of the appointment.

    Then the alarms 1 through 5 I assign to go off before the actually appointment time by some offset of 30 minutes-- enough time for me to be reminded of the appointment via tha alarm tone, adn enough time to drive to the appointment.

    Did this make sense?

    Yeah, I can see that it is a hassle for data entry, but I don't have to use it that often. For appointments, I don't have that many to track, and those that I do track are distant by several months or weeks.

    I can see that the data and telephone number features are pretty useless if someone has a cell phone or PDA.

    I've got my eye on that new CASIO G-Shock type Verizon cell phone (G'zone, or something like that-- a name that totally doesn't stick in my memory!).

    Or, anybody know of a G-Shock rugged PDA? I'd be curious about something like that!

    But, I come back to the fact that I really like having the timepiece/data module:
    - on my wrist
    - rugged
    - right there when I need it

    Simple, small, tough, and difficult to misplace.
    regards,
    James

    I don't carry a cell phone. I hate the thing's:-X

    A home phone with an answering machne is good enough for me

    The only time I carry a cell phone is when I'm travelling through Asia border regions, country Australia or on a boat in-case of emergencies

    I have a Timex with this memory feature. I put some data in it's memory because I allways know where to find that watch. If I write something important on a paper, it's a fact that the paper will dissapear :-D

    at my work all computers have three log on passwords, which is changed every 3 months, I store the codes in my 2300B & in my G-7000; even if I wear a different "G" some days, I keep the 2300 in my back/pack; 2300 is one of the best "G"s for functions(IMHO)

    HAPPY HOLLOWEEN!
    Brad
    Have a great day.
