    The consensus will of course end up being.... get them all.

    Not for all unfortunately. I really regretted buying my MIRO Riseman for these reasons ...

    - a button jammed-up with sand & was stuck
    - cheap plastic look to bezel - bit like a clothes-peg plastic!
    - excessive plastic contours on the bezel for no purpose
    - bulky (but in fairness just wearable) on my 6.5" wrist
    - difficult to read the time with shadows overlapping the top of the main digits

    If the MIIW Riseman went out of contention because it only displays metric, that should also eliminate the MIRO Riseman since it is also metric display only. Now you only have 2 to choose from. Personally neither of the 2 left would be my pick. Instead, I would go for a dragon Riseman in the standard issue black.

    The one in the picture is the non atomic G-Rescue Riseman and not the atomic MIRO so it do have imperial also!

    I like that Gulfman. I dont have any Translucent Gs... and I like that Gulfman more than either of the others.

    MY second choice would be the MIRO Riseman. I love the watch... but not so much the color...

    That first one wouldnt make it to my radar screen! :) Sorry, personally I wouldnt wear a purple G. ITs cool, but I wouldnt wear it.
    Suunto... Replacing Luck!

    I'm thinking that maybe, just maybe sml didn't like his Riseman.

    As for which of the watches, my choise is none of the above. I just do not go for the colors at this time. I like Black, Stainless Steel, and Titanium, maybe some gold as well.

    The MIRO has Multiband 6 and the G-Rescue does not.

    But I think there will be many using the terms interchangeably.
