    G-700 torture test: Freeze! Burn! Smash! Drop! (pix)

    Is the G-Shock really as tough as Casio says? 1 day off + 2 excitable kids = tough test time. I took my G-700D to task today, here's what happened:

    The deep freeze: four hours in the freezer and this is what we get:




    Melted the ice and the G700 emerges, working fine, no problems:





    My son insisted we show his BK star wars "watch":




    The kick: It's a World Cup year, so why not tape the G-700 to the soccer ball and kick that sucker.



    The kick in progress, note the flying G. This is not easy to detect in the video. Once I kicked the ball, the G ripped loose (my son had the first kick and it must have loosened up).




    The boil: The G700 does some time in boiling water, approx 3 minutes.



    See the G boil on video.

    Note the condensation inside the crystal following this torture. The condensation disappeared after a few minutes, watch working fine.



    The toss: Out to the street where my daughter tosses the G700 up in the air and we watch it bounce off the asphalt.



    Video of the toss

    The drop: 20+ feet up on the roof, we drop the G700 to the cement walkway below.



    The G700 sustains the first real damage of the day, taking a direct hit on the bezel:



    Game over. G700 working fine and officially tough tested.
    Go Dortmund!

    Nice!

    I have a watch just like that one too. Don't think I could put it through that kind of torture!

    Also like the story telling & the pics, cheers!

    Wow, Freediver,

    that are some great and scary tests. Looks like your G-700 now has it's "Wasi Bari feel!" I think Bram would be as excited as your kids were:-D

    Anyway, I took this picture of his mess after he went to bed a few days ago. He said I wasn't allowed toutching it. He was still on a mission :-D



    Cheers,

    Hi Terry,

    I guess you inspired him with your tests on the G-2300

    That's just awesome! Thanks FreeDiver for offering your watch to the Gods of G. Now we can all rest assured that our watches are the toughest in the world.

    p.s.- too bad your son did not offer to torture test his BK Star Wars watch; would have been cool to see a comparison test between 2 digital watches of varying quality. :-D

    :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D

    Nice pictures.....and superb movies, a nice G-story: another tough day out of the life of a G.

    Indeed: who is going to do the first: G-shock versus .......??
    See how tough the other brands are .

    Now stop torturing your G-700, he had enough!!

    Cheers, Bb
