    G - shock(s) under water....

    Hi everyone :)

    I'm curious whether any of you dive with g-shocks?

    recreational or professional divers? or some water sports?

    I think g-shocks are used quite a lot in recreation diving or snorkeling, but for professional use they are mainly as backup. They lack a certain functions that divers can get these days with other manufacturers...

    With computer on your wrist a watch is not really as mandatory as in the heroïcs days'...
    But my G-Shock are always been used in salt water with no second thoughts.
    You can bump them on equipement or even hit rocks or the sea's bottom with no worry about cracking the glass.
    Also I have always used the buttons while submerged. Auto lighting is a must.
    A G Shock is made for that. From the cheap one to the Master of G's.
    I would not trust to use the multi mission crown while under water though...
    I'm PADI diver and G Shock are my favorite for sea sports, skiing, yachting, surfing, swimming... You name it. I have never got a single issue in 30 years of using them.
    Cheers.

    Salt water and fresh, Use my G-Shocks and ProTreks as race timers. In hot weather we swim off the boat between races to cool off. Never had any problem but I don't push any buttons underwater as I have no reason to. Over the years of using and destroying Timex, Citizen, Seiko, etc, Casio can take the abuse.

    There have been dozens of threads here with "G-Shocks in Action" pics, but the U.S. Navy issued DW-6600s for divers for years (also EOD & SEALs). Now, the GW-530A seems to be a favorite.
