    Is Every G-Shock ISO Certified?

    Was just wondering if they all are even the models not built specifically for diving. Thank you in advance for the responses.

    No, I don't believe they all are. Frogman are for sure, don't believe any others are.

    "As the only G-Shock with ISO 6425 certified water resistance to 200 meters and a dive time and surface interval measurement function, the Frogman is considered the best G-Shock for serious diving use."

    no, QC tests are done randomly on production runs. only Frogs are each tested.

    AFAIK the Frog is the only G that says "Diver's 200m" on the dial, and so it's the only one that is officially ISO-6425 compliant.

    That said, many people swim and dive with other Gs.

    I can add that many insurance companies will not cover any watch used for diving purposes that is not >or= 300meters water resistant.

    Interesting. First time I read insurance policy like this. :)

    For most people, ISO certification is overkill as most recreational diving should not tax the water resistance of most G-Shocks. It's nice to have but only adds to the cost of the watch and is the reason why Frogmans are so expensive (in addition to the metal screw back case). I've taken my DW6900 down to about 90ft and it held up fine.

    False, as to the question. Every G is not ISO CERTIFIED. All G shocks are designed for depth, and are randomly tested.

    They are built for swimming and such, but Frogs are the ONLY ISO G.
