    If I recall correctly, someone did manage to put the GW-200 series bezel on the DW-8200 Frogman (or was it vice versa), but it was definitely NOT a factory fit. The case and button placement is simply just different.

    the straps are no problem, the bezel is though. it will FIT but, not perfectly. heres some pics:
    heres the dw-8200 before the mod

    then i put this bezel on:

    then i put this one on:

    this was a better fit, but the bottons on the left stick out. and lastly i slapped this on:

    this one i boiled before hand, and then put on. it fits awesome (except for the buttons on the left) i sort of just muscled it on, and it was worth the risk for me, cause this was a watch i primarily used at the gym. if youre not careful you might tear the resin near the buttons.

    I stand corrected. I guess you can muscle one on.

    And by the looks of the size of that arm, it appears Chargeit has plenty to spare!
