I never owned a watch and now i made up my mind to buy one. I made some research and found two models which appeared interesting to me: GW9200-1 and PAG240-1. I'm kind of active person and i really like the fact that g shock can take any abuse and that particular model has altimeter, barometer, thermometer tough solar and multi band 6. Pathfinder has almost the same features but it also has a compass,sunset and sunrise data, and it doesn't have multi band 6 and its not a shock resistant.
I would be very glad to hear opinions or recommendations of somebody who owned or currently own one of those.
