    G-Shock- Another Chance?

    I have done quite a lot of searching trying to decide what G-Shock might be good for me but there are so many to choose from. For the last 20 years I've worn a Luminox Navy Seal, unless it was in the shop. During the time it was gone I wore a basic analog Indiglo Timex and liked it quit a bit.

    I tried a DW5600 a couple years ago but it wasn't that comfortable for me. Now I'm considering another G-Shock.

    Some things that I'm looking for are,

    >It will be used for everyday wear/outdoors/hunting/shooting/work, etc.
    >Smaller in size/weight as not to hang up and beat against everything.(I have 6.75" wrists)
    >Simple
    >Comfortable
    >Analog (prefered) but digital would be considered
    >Easy to read from most angles
    >Good lume or good back light
    >Lots of extra features not needed or important.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Can you explain more why a DW5600 was not comfortable for you? That's basically the most compact G-Shock you can find. Your answer will help you find the right one this time.

    The way the 5600 fit on my wrist was in between holes. It was either too loose or too tight. A WUS member recommended a band made another model and I ordered it to try but it still didn't feel right.

    AW, AWG and AWM models are some of the analog G's good for small wrists

    I've got what I consider small wrists too, although I've not measured them. I wear an AWG-M100 and I too find myself between holes every now and then, but for the most part, I err on the side of a little loose. I really don't mind it though.
    Analog w/digital, solar, atomic, and if you find sales, it can be found for under $90 shipped.

    Thanks.

    I've seen where the 5610 fits a little different and has solved the in between fit on some guys.

    AWG-M100 might fit (those with positive LCD)


    Larrger but with larger displays too, the GA-100:

    I appreciate all the suggestions. Those are some good looking Casios but the faces are getting a little busy and they have more features than I need.

    Thanks
