    G-shock noob question:

    Hi guys! I have decided to take my first steps away from mechanical watches and try out a G-shock!

    So here is my question: which G-shock has the most features (including barometer, altimeter, etc.)?

    Sweet! This might be a stupid question, but is the Raysman the same thing as the Riseman?

    No, they're different. A Raysman looks like this:

    Re: G-shock noob question:

    Go for Riseman. No regrets. It currently comes in black n orange since it's only released this year. Not sure if the orange one is out yet though.
    But do take note there are 2 versions--GW-9200 n G-9200. Only the former has wave-receptor that allows you to synchronise your watch in some countries and so it also costs a bit more.

    Oops...just realised there's gonna be a white one too. They are really churning out the new riseman quicker than i can save up for them..

    Alright. I am going to try and trade for one (see my post on the WTT forum). I will post back if I catch one.

    As of yesturday I never though I would be so enthsiastic about a digital watch! I fear if there is a G-shock influenza I have caught it!
