First and foremost, I like the overall appearance....both classy and stealthy all at the same time.
Not too big nor too bulky, and it doesn't look childish or frivolous.
And for a G-Shock it has relatively little text on the dial and bezel.
The negative digital display is a bit hard to read in certain lighting, but to be honest, I don't use the timers and alarms and such that much anyway.
And the negative digital display really makes the analog hands standout.
More good news: the strap is very comfortable and plenty long even for my 7.75" wrist.
Wearing it just a tad loose, I still have three more holes available.
It does have a few drawbacks....
The stopwatch only goes to 1 hour and the count-down timer is only for 1 hour as well.
And the hands do obscure the digital displays at certain times of the day (11:00-1:00 being the only real problem times since the read out most needed is at the top of the dial).
However I think these drawbacks are minor....
I have never needed a count-down timer for more than 30 minutes.
And if I did I could always just set one of the four alarms to the time desired.
I have used a stop-watch for longer than an hour, but not very often.
Most things that I time are well within one hour.
This one is also basic battery powered quartz....which is good in my opinion.
No atomic syncing to fret over.
No solar charging to worry about.
Just set it and forget it!
Anyway, that's why I like this G-Shock.
