PICS ADDED IN!!!!
I just got a G-8000 yesterday.
Surprisingly, it's more comfortable than my previous G-7700. And the display is SO MUCH EASIER to read compared to a G-7700 with it's complicated and small digits.
The bad thing is it is not as feature packed as a G-7700. Pretty standard G-Shock functions. No extras like day counter or lap time record or dual countdown timer. But I have not much use for these anyway.
Another bad thing is, in stopwatch mode, the sec counter is small size and in the bottom(Occupies the sec display in normal time mode.) The main large display is used for min.
And it says on the Casio site it is only 11.2mm thick which is rubbish. This thing is at least 13mm or 14mm thick. Again, pretty standard G-Shock thickness. Even a DW-5600 is thinner.
Overall, it's comfortable, pretty good looking and easy on the eye. And wearing it makes me feel YOUNGER compared to wearing a more gung-ho looking G-7700. Best part is a G-8000 is CHEAP where I live in.
To be honest, I've never even considered buying a G-8000 before because I used to think it looks like a toy. But not I know that's not true. Highly recommended. I like this better than the Mudman which I have sold.Pictures are here. FINALLY, I have a decent phone cam. My previous phone cam really can't make the grade anymore.
Here's the stopwatch. Min in main display. Sec on the bottom right.
The round light bulb is sort of blocking the sec display if the angle is not good.
Don't really like these "holes" but I can live with it.
Strap is a little too long. I'm on the 4th hole which I think is pretty normal to small wrist size.
It's quite OBVIOUS this thing is not 11mm thick like what Casio claims. More like 13mm or 14mm.
Where are the screws?????
"Snakeskin-like" straps. But not an issue. CAN'T feel the roughness. I gurantee this.
THAT'S ALL FOLKS!! PRETTY GOOD WATCH FROM CASIO!
