Other than the basic shock and water resistance, that every G-Shock has, what features do you use most on your favorite G-Shocks?
Although I donít use the stopwatch function very often, I do find myself constantly using the countdown timer. I use the timer very often in the kitchen, and am also constantly counting down the time between baby feedings, now that Iím a proud father. The repeat function works quite well in this case, as the feedings are 3 hours apart.
I also make quite a bit of use of the Data Memory function on my G2300. I store all sorts of phone numbers in it, that donít get used often enough to memorize. I also keep a bunch of emergency phone numbers stored in the G2300, just in case.
My wife also has a Baby-G with data memory, which actually came in very handy one day. She was at work and had a terrible gall bladder attack, leaving her incapacitated on the floor and in much pain. When a coworker offered to call her doctor and myself, my wife simply pressed a button on her G-Shock. The coworker saw the work phone number on the watch and called me, and then proceeded to find the doctorís number and call her. The Baby-G was a lifesaver that day.
I also make great use of the alarm features. I set an alarm (snooze feature if available) to wake up to in the morning. I also set an alarm for the end of the work day, so I donít run late and miss the last bus home. Without this last alarm setting, Iíd have some VERY long walks home.
