    An ideal Gshock.

    Hello everyone.
    I've been searching for a perfect GShock for the past couple of weeks. I ended up with GR-8900 for the time being, however I'd like to get GW-7900 next or GWX-8900.
    Still, those watches don't have everything, does Casio make a model with all of the features or is it impossible?

    The features I'm after are:

    20WR/Shock Resistant and other standard features
    Super Illuminator (AUTO) (Not EL backlight)
    Tough Solar (+Battery indicator)
    Multiband 6
    Low temp. LCD -20
    Four point design + large buttons
    Tide/Moon Data
    World Time
    Tripple sensor
    Compas?
    Bullbars
    Music control + notifications with more phones that just S5/IPhone
    Matte finish
    Color variety

    Anything close to that? I was thinking, does tough solar exclude the possibility of low temp LCD?

    I'm quite sure that you'll have to eliminate about half of your "dream features" to get the other half on one watch.

    Bluetooth, music control and "notifications with more phones" are mutually exclusive from "Triple Sensor" and "compass."

    "Multiband 6" always comes with "solar" but I'm certain that there aren't any of those with "low temp."

    "Tide/moon data" aren't on any G-Shocks that I know of with "Triple Sensor" and compass -- though you can find all three of those, PLUS Multiband 5 or 6 and solar on one Pathfinder/Pro Trek model.

    The good news is that 20 BAR/200 meter water resistance and shock resistance are standard on ALL G-Shocks. Right now it's sounding like the closest model is going to be the GW-9400 Rangeman, but even that only meets about nine of your criteria.

    Agree with all Mike stated above, but 2 different watches would probably cover almost all of the bases, such as a Rangeman and a PRW-2500. Add another for Bluetooth

    Yeah, that's what i thought. I will have to go with GR-8900 + GW-7900, I guess. Although many features are not present with both of them.
