    Is anyone here familiar with these digital watches? Do you like them?

    Re: Freestyle "Shark" watches

    my first surfing watch was a freestyle that reminded me more of the g shock gulfman. i loved it as i was a beach lifeguard and they were pretty popular at the time. i knew of Gs but no surf shop in my area carried them so i just stuck with freestyle. all in all, they make some fashionable metal watches like the old all black lopex but their best ones are their tide watches.http://www.freestyleusa.com/products/Tide/Tide+3.0/
    like nixon, they are all digital, pretty stylish, and really cater to an actual surfer with preprogrammed tides for 15 years. looks like the one you posted is kind of taking a page from the 5600 as far as design.

    I have about 6 of them, I love them, have never had any problems with mine. My favorite is my all black one that I have put on a Seiko Z-20 strap, super comfy and looks great, I have surfed and rode motocross with mine many times without any issues. I really like the retro, kinda old school look about em.
    Experience is what you end up with when you didn't get what you wanted.

    They were the "must have" for surfers about ten years ago but seem to have fizzled out. They don't do anything a G Shock can't do!

    If the quality of the freestyle is anything like they were made 10 years ago it is a very solid watch. Had one throughout middle school and never took it off for about 5 years until the battery died.

    The pic above is from their "Retro 88" line. I guess it first appeared in 1988.

    The only thing is, if you have a large wrist the black canvas strap will not fit, I have a somewhat large wrist and I was about a half an inch away from the 2 ends even touching, it is a very small strap, if you buy the one with the resin strap, you will be good to go unless you intend to put another strap on it, it wouldn't matter..

    I saw a freestyle diving watch on my local classifieds that looked very interesting.....stainless case with resin strap. Good to know they are considered reliable! (probably will stick to G's though!)
