I needed a quick beat around watch for work and weekend duties around the house, so I picked up the basic classic DW6900. This is a not a fancy atomic, solar, neon colored, military styled, limited edition, Japan version, Zombie Killer, etc ... kind of watch. Just plan and simple. It tells time, looks good, comfortable to ware and I have found it to be a simple pleasure. Just the ability to reset the stopwatch with one push of the buttom is alone a great reason for me to love this watch. I never liked having to hold a button down to reset the stopwatch function. The countdown timer flashes the EL when it hits zero for night time jogging. I also like having the time display on the stopwatch and count down timer. The EL is nice and it has the functions I use most of the time. Simple basic G Shock function and style for a great price. Yes I know it's lacking some other features, but for around $55 bucks it's a great watch to own. Fancy over the top watch functions are neat at times, but I like the fact that I use all of the functions on this watch including the alarm.
Just my opinion.
