    Does this model have soft rubber PU?

    Been looking at this model GW-5510-1BJF



    Does it have the softer PU? I had a Giez with.the softer stuff and it ws really comfy. There's another square G with the soft stuff but can't remember the name... GWM5600BC maybe but there's a few similar models.


    Also been looking at some 6900 models. There's a full blacked out version I really like. Do any 6900 models come with soft PU?

    hmmm.....

    If you asking for the flexible band and bezel:
    Every G except the MTG and MRG series has a rubber bezel and all G without Braceletts have soft rubber bands.

    The GW-5000 has a special softer strap, like the Giez.
    Other models differ depending of strap thickness, age and batch.

    So plenty of choices.

    No I don't mean if it comes without the composite bracelet or any kind of solid bracelet. There's a difference between some of the PU material used
    Some are harder than others.

    I guess I know what you mean - but the soft PU is not a G-shock thing. There would hardly be any G-shocks with the soft PU bands. I have seen that material on several aftermarket straps and it's really really comfortable. I had a set of similar aftermarket bands on my 6600 but later I switched to the original bands.

    There is definitely a difference, it's not just aftermarket stuff. If you compare let's say a Giez with a 7900 there is a clear difference.


    Someone will know exactly what I'm talking about.

    I know the difference!

    The GS-1100 comes with a more soft strap then the rest of the Gs.
    And the sole other example im aware of is the GW-5000.

    repeating myself

    I was going by what you said before you edited your first post in which the information wasn't as accurate as it is now. So thanks for repeating what I already know but what I want to know is if the model above has the softer PU and if there are any 6900 models with softer PU.

    99% sure that the only current model with a softer PU is the GW-5000, so shy of putting a GW-5000 band on a 6900, no, there is nothing else.
