Hi how are you guys going?
For my second G I could not decide between the G-5600-1JF and the G-5600RB-JF. After reading about the problem with the battary, I was kind of but off. But after reading several reviews by owner and forum members I finally decide to go for the G-5600-1JF. I have own this watch awhile now and before me just another owner, can't really said how old this watches, but so far (knock on wood) no problems :-D none what so ever. It re-charges just fine. I would wear my DW-5600 to work and school every-day and the G-5600 on the weekend, so it doesn't get much light at all and so far it has not drop a bar since I brought it. I set only two alarms, the save fuction is on and the auto EL back light is on. I don't really hesitate to use all the fuction as many time as I like to compare to the DW-5600 because it a tough solar. I have only left the watch on the window to sunbath once for about 10 min and so-far the battary is always full. I have really small wrist so this is perfect G for me. I love everything about, the simple design, it not loud the color is perfect black, red, and white. The display is simple, it not cluttered. It history from military, astronaut (NASA approve fright watch one of only four).All I can say is you can't go wrong with a 5600.
