    How many G-Shocks needed to cover all features ever put into a G-Shock?

    Hi,
    I've wanted to start this thread for a little while now and didn't so far because I don't know if it will work out in the end. I also don't know if it has been done before.
    The idea came from something Holger (cal..45) wrote - he said something like 'with the G-7700 and the GW-9200 you got everything covered'- So I was thinking: 'How many G-Shocks would you really need to cover everything?'.
    So I wanna start this thread to do two things:

    1. come up with a list of all the features ever put into a G-Shock module (including stuff like LED-flashers, vibration-alarms, REM-function, etc.)

    2. put together a list of the minimum number of G-Shocks you'd need to cover all those functions.

    And since I want everyone to participate (well, at least everyone who's interested in doint it) - I thought I'd put down some rules:

    Everybody should name one G-Shock and add a new feature that it has that hasn't been mentioned before. Don't know if this rule is any good - maybe it'd be better to allow for more models in one post . But those are in no way fixed rules - don't know how the thread will work out in the end .

    I hope this will somehow work out - don't know if it will, but it might be fun to try at least .

    So I'll start with the GW-9010:
    functions covered:
    - solar/atomic multiband-6
    - rally timer function
    - mud-resistance
    - 24 hr stopwatch
    - 24 hr timer (missing auto-repeat)
    - world-time
    - alarms setable to date/month - 4+snooze
    Hope I didn't miss something important .

    Greetings, Sedi
    Cheers

    G2900,G7100. Each alarm, 4 multi function + 1 snooze, can have up to 8 scrolling text characters added at the top to remind you what the alarm is for. Also the graphics on each watch begin to flash one hour before the alarm is scheduled to activate.

    GW200-series Frogman allows you to store CC#, Passport #, and Blood Type.

    Codename gives you SAR Ground-Air Visual Signal Codes, 20 Contacts, ID (License/Passport/CC#), Name, Blood Type, DOB, and "Auto Display Mode" which I guess you're supposed to put it into before you slip into unconsciousness after gunning down several enemy soldiers and taking a round to the leg. Or something...

    I add the GW-9200 for barometer, thermometer and altimeter

    Also the DW-9800 Wademan for its compass

    Lungman DWG-100 for pulse sensor

    G-/GL-7500 or GW-400 for vibrating alarm

    The GM-100 G-Mix model for its musical polytone alarm that is very loud and can actually wake you up, the loudest alarm on any G-Shock.

    The DW-6900CS-1 Crazy Color "Zombie Slayer" for its ultra brigt EL light

    Working better than I thought . I think I have to change the rules - everyboday can post as much models as he wants to and participate as often as he likes.
    And maybe also name all the new features of the models that haven't been covered yet.
    In case of the G-7900 for example we'd also have:
    - two 1000 hr stopwatches
    - timer with auto-repeat and progress beeper
    In case of the G/GL-7500:
    - unique 'elapsed time'-mode on the timer that starts a stopwatch operation for up to 100 hr after the timer is up

    :thanks to all who have posted so far - keep them coming guys !

    you'd want a frogman for its iso certification.

    we want the cool 'day counter' feature that counts down days to a target. (the antman i had did this).

    i'm not sure if a model mentioned already has this, but we'd no doubt want a 'low-temp lcd' such as on the g7900.

    isn't there a g-shock with a half-hour chime in addition to hourly? (??)

    of course we want to cover dlc- i nominate the gw500.

    if analog, we want to cover the tough-movement concept (i propose mtg-1500).
