    Lightbulb Feature requests for new Rangeman

    Title say it all. How would you improve the Rangeman? It came out a great while ago, isn't really featured in Casio's marketing material anymore, sold well, so I reckon it would be logical to expect an update.

    This is a thread to suggest features, we could make it into a poll after seeing the most common requests. So far I've heard the following:

    - Sapphire glass
    - Smaller size
    - Silent alarm
    - Seconds for timer
    - Repeating timer
    - Moon phase
    - Redesigned lugs

    I would prefer the first three, don't really care for the rest. None of them are related to the ABC(T) sensors so maybe people are okay with them. Still, it is possible that Casio is holding off an update until it can improve the sensors as well.

    First and foremost: Vibe alarm (long and strong) - no matter what other features they put in, I can't see myself buying a(ny) digital watch these days, which doesn't have it - it is just too darn useful once you had a watch with it.

    Aditionally a better backlight, countdown timer with adjustable seconds, bigger digits, bigger barograph and please get rid of those ugly screws on the bezel.


    cheers

    Yeah, I don't understand the screws either, they serve no purpose other than looks.

    - not just moon phase, but tide graph too

    - the upgraded Baro found on the newer Gulfmaster and PRW-7000, allowing the graph to update every 30 minutes instead of 2 hours

    - GPS sync but also with a "trackback" display


    I don't expect to see number 3. I can't think of anything else to add.. Even if Casio came out with the first two, it wouldn't be enough for me to buy it. The PRW-7000 already has that.

    Maybe I'm just not imaginative enough - but I think that Casio is coming to a place where they can't add much more to a digital watch without going the smartwatch route.... And I still have no interest in those.

    -smaller size: front run the trend to smaller watches, and size it like the 5600s
    -louder, longer alarms
    -for the vampires and their hunters: a customizable alarm for sunrise/sunset. Ie, the warning can be set to a variable time preceding these events.
    -built in metal zulu lugs, like Bertucci uses, to silence the lug-detractors forever. The lugs would be firmly attached to a metal sub-frame like the GD-400 series uses.
    -bigger display
    -remove the decorative screws. Casio: sometimes less IS more.

    Make it look like the Riseman.
    I'm half tempted to buy a Rangeman because the features are naturally more modern and better than the Riseman but in comparison looks-wise I just can't bring myself to throw money at it, it looks Like Optimus Prime's head whereas the Riseman is pretty sleek and snazzy looking. Even if it was slightly bigger than the original Riseman it would to me be an improvement.

    Vibe alarm
    Moon phase/Tide Graph
    Put the temperature sensor so it rads from the front of the watch so the wearer doesn't have to take it off to get an accurate reading.

    Might as well cram as much into it as possible. :)
    I'd say it was worth 200 notes if it was like this.
