    Help with choosing smaller G-shock

    Hi, guys:

    Love the forum! I've been lurking here awhile. I'm female and currently wear a 5600, but that's about as large as my 6" wrists will allow. What other G's are comparable (or smaller?) in size? I'm looking at the 2300, 2800 or 2900, but I'm confused about sizes.

    Thanks for any help!

    here's a cool smaller g-shock, the gwm-850. for reference, my wrist is about 7.6":

    My wrist is 6.5". I've owned both the 2300 and 2900 and both were not too big for my wrist. Both the 2300 and 2900 have very full featured modules. Have you gone to the Casio web site and done a size comparision?

    I think all those you mentioned are pretty large. I have an 8" wrist, and I found all of these fit me pretty well. I would recommend some sort of 5600 variant - DW-5600, GLX-5600, GWM5600 - the square ones. They seem to fit best on smaller wrists, as my wife has.

    The GWM-850 as mentioned in the second post is also a good choice. It comes in both the white shown and in black. I looked at these, but they were too small for me. Might be perfect for you.

    Good luck in your choice.

    Also, welcome to the forum!

    Welcome to the forum Laura. Another one to look into would be the G-7301. Here are a couple of comparison pics showing a G-9000 and G-2300 together and then a G-9000 with a G-7301 on my 6.5" wrist.

    I think that you can try BabyG it looks great on women. If you want a Gshock then you should like the chunky style, which is cool too.
    There are also mini-G, which are even smaller than BabyG, you can browse "gshock mini" on ebay and see them.
    Concerning Gshocks, the smallest models IMO are :

    aw590 family , awg100
    g300 family
    g7700 and g7710 family
    g2500
    maybe also the g5600 family, or glx5600 that have nice colors you may like, and which should be slightly smaller than your dw5600

    By the way if you like the G2300 look (my god, you're a special woman lol...), then you really should consider the g2500 which is same style but considerably smaller.

    Mini G also if you are looking for the traditional case shapes but in smaller size.
