    g-shocks make a great gift

    my mother and i were visiting last week, she had been wearing my ironman because she loved the fast-wrap strap and found the alarm quite handy. she informed me that she would miss her medication due to being busy and or simply forgetting. i asked how many times per day she was required to take her meds and the time of day coinciding with each dose. well it works out to 3x per day with one fingerstick for blood glucose level. sounds like the perfect job for a g-shock but which one.
    i selected a gw-5600 model from macys. it's solar/atomic with four daily alarms and 1 snooze alarm(i think) and most importantly, it indestructible. so i set three of the daily alarms for medication reminders, and set the fourth for blood glucose monitoring. now she no longer has an excuse for missing her medication or for being late. if any of you have family members that miss medications due to a busy lifestyle or simply require a reminder cue, consider gifting them a g-shock.

    thanks for reading
    Enjoying a life far better than I deserve...

    And the GW-5600J has earned another fan. Kudos!

    Of course, another advantage of the 5600J over the Ironman is the exceptionally large, easy-to-read digits on the display.

    G-9100 Gulfman
    G-9000MC-8D Mudman
    GW5600J
    GA-100A-9A

    Sucks to be without a G.
