Ever since the GW9010 Mudman was out, I really like the additional list of features to the original GW9000 Mudman
But I am not a fan of the LCD layout. And then it comes the GWM850. It has the same feature as the GW9010 Mudman and with a different LCD layout which I could live with.
- Mutli band 6 atomic
- 24hr CDT
- Adjustable EL duration (1.5 or 3 sec)
- Display both date and day in the current mode
On the other hand, I think GW810D was really cool looking with an easy to read reversed LCD and I especially like the comfortable case and bracelet.
And this is what I end up with, a bracelet version of the GWM850. I swapped the rubber strap and bezel with between the GW810D and GWm850. Now I have the comfort of the GW810D and the feature of GWM850.
I still think the LCD could be bigger to fill up the dial better and I still miss the cool looking reversed LCD of the GW810D (and wished the GWM850 comes standard with a easy to read reversed LCD). But I guess I would have to live with those for now.
