    Hi there,

    I only have a G7900 so I can't really comment on the functionality of the module.

    But as far as comfort goes, this is really very comfortable on the wrist.

    The buttons are big and easy to push... Plus the dedicated EL button is great!

    The functionality, if you leave out the 'atomic' and 'solar' is not a good as the 'G'7900 variant. I have several of both, and one thing that irritates me is that on the G model, in the moon function, you can scroll through the calendar, and the moon icon will display in real time so you can easily find out when the next new moon is. With the GW model, the moon icon takes a second or two to refresh, so the dates can fly past, but the moon icon does nothing. As for looks, the negative display is a fashion statment, and is considerably more difficult to read than the standard display. Even today, I'm wearing my GW7900b, and wanted to set the timer for some cooking alerts, and had to stand at the kitchen window to get enough light to read the darn display - but it does look good!

    If you do buy it, you'll not be disappointed, it has the usual 5 alarms, inc snooze, stopwatch, world time etc...

    Oh, the wrist shot:-

    You know I have this model and really love it. In DIM light it a bit harder to read as is any neg display. Mine works as expected and looks stellar. I also have the positive version of this one as well. Here is the negative and positive, I do have to say that I prefer the positive disply for legibility particularly under water, however having said that I would buy the B version again in a heart beat :)

    ericng79 and LUW like this.

    I don't own one, but LOVE that they brought back the LOW TEMP LCD label :) I wish they'd make a 5600 with this marking...

    I like it, as far as functionality it depends on which aspects you use regularly.
    Yes, I am OCD. What gave it away?
