    Thumbs Up "double tap" to dismiss.... (GB-5600AA-1JF)

    I was just watching a video about the GB-5600AA-1JF... The guy in the video double tapped his watch to dismiss an alert.

    What sensor is this? I'm assuming it's not a tilt sensor...

    Double tap would be a good way to activate the back light in the 5610...

    Pressing a button is apparently a BETTER way to activate a light -- which is probably why MOST watch companies use buttons!

    A "momentary switch" is simple, inexpensive to produce, and probably less prone to failure than any mechanism that is going to recognize a "double tap," which will surely be more complicated. (Even the fairly simple microswitch for the "auto EL" had more reported problems than the basic "light button.")

    Big companies generally like "simple," which is also usually "inexpensive" -- maximizing profits is part of how they got to be big companies in the first place.

    Maybe you should just BUILD your own watch, instead of trying to second-guess entire teams of Casio engineers several times a day.

    Can you deny, there's nothing greater, nothing more, than the traveling hands of time.

    Ok, so basically your ideal watch should be a GWM5610 with GPS and DoubleTap light activation feature. Would you like to have fries with that?
