    How does the 3159 module compare to others?

    What are your thoughts on the 3159, and/or what's your favorite G-Shock module?

    Some things I don't like about the 3159 module used in the GW-M5610, GW-5000 and GW-S5600:

    - Backlight duration is limited to 1.5 seconds. No option for 3 seconds.
    - Can't show a second time zone on the main timekeeping screen.

    Many other solar/atomic Gs have modules that can do both of these things. Among those I own, the GW-2310, GW-M850 and GW-9110 can all do these things. The popular GW-6900 can also do these things.

    Most solar/atomic Gs, including the GW-M5610 and the others I mentioned above, can't display the current time in other modes, like the stopwatch and countdown timer modes. I'm not sure why this is, but it's an unnecessary limitation.

    Not much experience here. But between 3229 and 3159 that are used in many squares

    I like that 3229
    -show current time in stw/cdt mode
    -back to timekeeping mode after you finished using other mode
    -no world time

    I like that 3159
    -has bolder digits
    -has snooze alarm
