I've been lusting after a Master of G watch, and I noticed that the new Rangeman is packed full of sensors and features. So much so that the Riseman had to go. And the Mudman (9300) only seems to have the advantage of being sand/dust-proof, for the rest it's more a "baby Rangeman", a cheaper model with less features.
Now, I am thinking of acquiring a Mudman. The GW-9300GB (JDM) has all the features I need and it looks pretty awesome, with the fully black bezel, gold accents and carbon-fiber strap. I could also purchase a GW-9400 for the same amount, but the added functionality is useless to me, and I'm not a fan of positive displays.
The problem here: What will Casio do? The current Mudman is two years old, and I'm afraid that Casio will lower the Mudman prices to differentiate from the Rangeman. Or perhaps introduce a new/upgraded model.
Now I know that nobody has a crystal ball or inside knowledge, but perhaps someone with experience in Casio product launches can shed some light on it?
Thanks in advance!
