    Which G Shock for 11 yo??

    Like the title said which G shock should I get for an 11 yo boy? No baby G cause no 11 yo boy would wear something with the word baby on it lol. I prefer the analog not all digital but a bit smaller than a full size G shock. My SKX 007 looks good on him size wise but a G shock can probably take abuse from 11 yo boy better. So, thoughts???

    While the size is right, this GW-2500 will be a challenge to find, as it is not made anymore, tho pre-owned ones turn up on watchrecon occasionally.. Edit: I see there is a new one on Amazon now and 2 on eBay.

    G-Shock - WatchRecon

    The other analog Gs are too big.

    When i saw your name i had that voice saying "EA Sports its in the game" in my head. Lol

    look into the G-Shock S Series. Its made for ppl with smaller wrists that don't want Baby-G written on their watch. They have some ana-digi and full digital models in that range.

    here is the website: http://www.gshock.com/watches/G-SHOCK_S_Series

    if you want ana-digi then these will work for a boy:

    All of the full sized (not Baby) analog Gs that I've seen seem to be pretty chunky monkeys and might well look too big for a boy's wrist. If you don't like the Baby G line, check out the S-Series line. It's marketed for women, but the watches have the G-Shock inscription rather than Baby G. There are some analog models there that are comparable in size to a DW-5600E (~49mm) and a bit bigger than your SKX007 (~42mm I think), which would probably work well for a boy's wrist.

    EDIT: Ha. Looks like Starscream and I had the same thought at the same time. Must be serendipity.

    My oldest son is 11 years old too and I just had him try on my 5610, he thinks it's too large for him, though the band does fit. It's one of the smaller G-shocks I own. Currently he's wearing a Timex Unisex Expedition Mid-Size digital watch and he loves it. Less than $30 so hard to go wrong if he breaks it.
    Otherwise you might also check into the Outgear models, (casio international page), or some of the sport models on the US page. I am not positive but they might give a better fit, some have solar charging, moon and tide graphs etc. which a kid might love! I think like the WS210H or others a kid might enjoy and I think they're a little smaller than most of the G-shocks. Of course the WS210 is all digital but there are lots of analog or ana/dig models too.
    Well, just my two cents that it might be worth a look there.

    The various AWG-M100 models are smallish G-Shock ana-digis. I have an AWG-M100A, and it fits great on my 6.75" wrist.

    Not a G-Shock but Under $20 Casio MRW-200 is quartz with day & date are more robust than a Timex.

    It all depends.

    I was in my young nephew's place the other day. He was watching the Disney channel, and being a G-WIS, I immediately caught a G-shock worn by a kid actor in one of the shows he was watching. Here are some youtube captures, not the same episode but he's wearing the same watch every time, a GD110-2 I believe.

    The point is, some kid can fathom a bigger watch than their wrist, some can't. It all depends on their preference.
