    Laughing GW-M5610 -> Just noticed something annoying, but it's not a big deal...

    In stop watch mode, the left most digit is smushed to fit on the LCD... Not a big deal though, since you would never notice it in normal time keeping mode.

    Fear not, as it's exactly the same on four of my five digital Gs, none of which are squares.

    I guess we can now have just one "Rostislav's 5610 Questions" thread where Rostislav can ask all his questions about the 5610 and other related stuff in one organized, linked and disjointed thread!!

    I was considering the 5600 solar. Any reason why you purchased the 5610 instead?

    The G-5600E is "just" solar -- the GW-M5610 (and most other models with a GW- prefix) are solar/atomic, which means that they will use radio reception to synchronize each night with that region's atomic clock. Thus, as long as the owner lives in an area where there's a transmitter (North America, Europe, and western Asia) and good radio reception they'll never have to adjust their watch because it "drifted" a few seconds off in the course of a month, and in North America and Europe the watch will even automatically adjust twice a year for Daylight Saving Time!

    Based on some other threads, the OP is a little obsessive about having the EXACT time on his watch, so he wanted the atomic feature.

    Yes, if the question was "why purchase the GW-M5610 instead of the GW-M5600?" the short answer would have been "The GW-M5610 is a newer model, features Multiband 6 reception instead of Multiband 5, and more places probably have the newer version in stock."

    Since eruption mentioned the "5600 solar" I'm guessing that he hadn't considered the solar/atomic version!

    Of course, Mr Persion, it is there in normal timekeeping mode. While it is not that noticeable for the first 20 hours a day, for four it is. In fact I'm just looking at it, albeit in WT mode, it is 22:18 UTC.

    It's only there in "normal timekeeping mode" in places that normally use the 24-hour clock -- which IS most of the world by both area and population.

    The 24-hour clock makes more sense, but there are still HUGE areas of the world that would rather use "AM" and "PM."
