Hi all. I've been reading a bit about G's for a few reasons. One is that I abuse watches. Lately I've been doing some building and woodwork, I ride regularly, I swim a lot (ocean and pool), and I do anything outdoorsy like hiking, mountain biking, climbing, etc. I've put quite a few scratches and dings in my poor old citizen diver lately, and the bezel broke on another diver. I happen to love simple mechanical watches (such as we'll built divers), but I started thinking about G's more recently. It started when I bought my daughter one for her birthday (any excuse to research watches!).
Anyway, I need a vibrating countdown timer (for some exams I have to sit for work this coming year). I'll need something that can be programmed to, say, vibrate at 9 mins, then maybe again (ideally with a different vibration) at 10, then repeat the process. That is, I'll have to answer 15 X 10min questions and keep close eye on the time! I used a rotating bezel on a diver last time, but it was a bit distracting and clunky.
So, any excuse for a new watch! Let's work backward from the vibrate programmable timer! Prefer black, like functions such as solar, compass, and maybe altimeter/barometer. Have a smallish wrist (6.7") but prefer watches a bit big (like 44mm or so).
What suggestions are out there? I've tried to search but the vibrate function is often not mentioned.....
