    GW-A1000 : removing red temp gauge

    I had seen a post about removing the red temp 'sensor' from the GW-A1000. I'm wondering how this will effect water resistance of the watch? Anyone have any idea's or insights?

    Surely the sensor has connections to the circuit inside the watch so from the water resistance standpoint tampering with it does not seem a good idea.

    GW-A1000 : removing red temp gauge

    The red plastic bumper seems like it's only that...a red plastic bumper. It doesn't look like it is an integral part of the temp measurement system.

    That's probably true but it still might also be the support that keeps the sensor itself in place and removing it could cause problems.

    I also think that piece of plastic is there for shock-resistant / decorative purpose.

    OK so will one of you gentlemen please remove the red ring from the watch, shoot a few pics then tell us if the temp reading is still active ....


    My red ring stays firm where Casio has put it.

    I have already done so last night Didn't seem like the red bumper is necessary, nor are there any specific indicators in the "black hole" of any temp sensor. However with the red bumper removed temp measurement still works fine. As it does atm with the red bumper firmly in place again since last night...

    If the problem is the color, why not paint it? I'm confident even a black sharpie would solve your problem.
    I for one would NOT remove the bumper - I do fiddle with my Gs but somethings are not supposed to be messed with, like deleting a part.

    Now I understand why you wear a G-Shock: you have plenty of courage and love adventure!

    Re: GW-A1000 : removing red temp gauge

    It wouldn't be the first time Casio has put a functional-looking bit on their watches for decorative purposes.

    It's like the elaborate button thing with a vent on the bottom of the bezel of the DW-6100... Nothing under there. All fake. The temp sensor is INSIDE the watch. I imagine the GW-A1000 works the same.

    Can someone show a photo of the GW-A1000 without the red circle on
