    Question Frogman Poll! Why do you own one/want one?

    I've had a long standing infatuation with the Frogman line, however I'm not a diver and I don't plan to start anytime soon. Am I odd or do other non-divers own or want a Frogman?

    Feel free to vote even if you don't own one but have an opinion on it!

    I am also a non diver who loves the frogman line. I like the way it sits off center on the wristband. I have only recently ordered my first frogman and I am counting down the days until it's arrival.

    I swim with it and surf with it, but I don't dive.

    I swim with mine, but not even that much anymore as sunscreen sticks to the resin and is tough to get off after a day in the sun.

    It is very simply an overpriced G Shock. If you want it buy it but it will not be the most used dive watch ever. Look through the forums here and you will see navy divers wearing most any G Shock durable and cheap to replace. There are also lots of seiko autos. I had a Dawn Black Frog and it just did not get worn so to the sales forum it went. I know has a Seiko SRP043 Spork that gets worn all the time. I am a diver and used whatever G I had when diving and also a Skinny Dipper dive computer. Now I just snorkel in San Diego at La Jolla Cove, swimming with the sharks will get your heart rate up. I take my Gulfman with me but it never really seams to judge the tides there very well the swells can get very large in a few min and the life guards will clear the swimmers out quickly.

    Maybe just me but with my 7.5" wrist I find the Frogman fitting very uncomfortable. I had a GW-200 and GWF-1000 and ended up selling both. I'm an avid pool swimmer and I wear a GW-5000 these days as it is extremely comfy under and above water and the digits seem easier to read.

    Frogman has a sense of very high quality in terms of materials and knowing it's certified diver's 200m I think that's what the attraction is.

    Short sleeve weather, I wear one everyday - but not in the shower.

    I just love the way they look. Cept the price still has me sitting on the fence, when thinking about it though...., it always come to mind of the money I’ve spent on bracelets, buckles, straps as well as Zulus over the past 5 months or so. If I didn’t make these purchases, I could have, (if yellow was a color I was looking for) bought one already through Amazon. Which would be similar to visiting McDonald’s, I’d have change left over for another "G"....

    I hope to own one someday, but I’ve finally made the decision to resist the temptation, at least not till I purchase the watch I have my sights on.

    Yes, I miss that option. I normally do not dive deeper than a few meters in a swimming pool in sea, but I wet it surely more than just the shower. I normally don't wear a watch under the shower, because the moist under the watch can become a bit irritating (I wear my watches quite snug).

    Cheers,

    Yup, if I was back in the Islands I'd wear my "G" at Sandy Beach on a big day to see how it goes. However for thoughs who know Sandy Beach, even a small to mid size day would give it a workout!
