    How scratch resistant are casio g-shock screens?

    So now that I have 3 G's I'm wondering, how rough and tumble are they? Do I need to baby the screen? Or can I wear them with relative impunity?

    The raised bezel on a G-Shock protects the face from a lot of accidental impact that would affect the crystal on a normal watch. However, it's still mineral glass, so it will scratch just the same if something does hit it.

    Isn't acrylic more prone to scratches than mineral?

    Yes, acrylic crystals scratch easier.

    G-Shocks don't have them though.

    you would really have to hit the screen head on, the raised bezel protects it from regular wear and tear.
    Couple of watches here and there

    Compared to my Suunto T3...

    My suunto T3 scratches by breathing on it... I literally had a boatload of scratches within 30 minutes of taking it out of the box. It must be supersoft cheap plastic. In comparison, the Gshock is like a tank.

    Fortunately, it is a workout only watch (HRM).

    yea... the Timex Ironman's are extremely easy to scratch, must be some cheap a$$ plastic. as for the Casio G-Shock's, you have to really smack 'em hard with something like a doorknob or other protruding metal objects.

    My strap fell apart (classic model, purchased in 1996) after seeing a few years of military action and some time in school. But... not a scratch on the glass. The bezel saw better days though.

    My user experience is, use with impunity. It's a true tool in my book.

    Go G!
