    G7800 fans please tell me if bands are easy to find

    Hello- I have been on the fence with this watch for almost a year. I liked the style, but I feared that the font would not be appealing. Then I was reading that I could change the font, so I decided to take the chance and purchase it. I am looking forward to receiving the watch. A while ago it was between this one and the g7710, and I bought the g7710 mostly because it was less expensive. I like the g7710, but the digits are a little small. Are there any fans of the G7800? Also- where can I find bands for this watch when the band fails? I did not find one on the casio sales and service site.

    Thanks all! Hopefully this will be the last one for a while.

    I'm a fan.

    You can change the font for the day/date section of the display, the main time display cannot be changed.

    The strap should last awhile, maybe they will be available in the future.

    Thanks! I bought the positive display. Almost all of the negative displays look like they would be more difficult to read (for me) than the positive ones. How is this negative display? Is it a lot brighter than the negative displays on the 5600? How about in low light situations?

    It is brighter than the 5600. In low light I use the auto el on positive and negative displays.

    I think someone here was able to custom fit their own strap to the case. Just requires some notching of the corners. A black silicone might look good or maybe a Maratac Elite.

    Someone did fit a custom strap ( just cut one down ) and it looked great. If I find it on search I will add the link.
