    Help with First Square?

    Hi all. I've recently thought about adding a square, and actually it will be my first G-Shock, to my collection. I've done lot of looking but the more I look, the more overwhelmed I'm getting. I know going with the 5600 or 5610 is the most sensible thing, and I may just do that, but I wanted to get some opinions here first.

    So, if you were buying your first square, and G-Shock, right now and could only pick one, which would you pick. Let's put a max price of $300 as I'm not ready to spend more than that at this point.

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    I would get the GW5000 if want metal with resin and atomic function. If that's not an interest go with the any of the bluetooth model squares that are now available they have all resin models of this and the display is very sharp.

    DW5600. Cheapest option so you will not lose much if you decide to "upgrade" or that a square is not for you.

    Try the 5610,it's a great little thing that does all you need and won't break the bank. After that who knows

    5610 is a great choice. But I admit I was never quite satisfied with mine and eventually went for the screwback.

    I also can't recommend the GW5000 enough. Amazingly comfortable yet substantial with the steel case and DLC screwback.
