    Least Used Function of G-Shocks

    Besides basic time-keeping, some of the other functions available in many G-Shock watches include Countdown Timer, Chronograph, World Time and Alarm. This survey looks at the practical utility of these functions.

    Can you include moon & tide functions? ie as in really use them not just looking at them because they are there.

    I suppose you could include ABC as well.

    I have kept out the special functions like altitude, barometer, compass, moon phase, tides, etc. Just surveying the basic features common to most G-Shocks.

    PS: I am monitoring three other polls as well; once they are done, maybe we could take up a survey of the special functions too.

    Why didn't anyone come up with the "Timestamp Function". It was the first thing that came to my mind as least used function on a G-Shock. The Tidegraph is very usefull for me as I live near the sea.

    Cheers,

    For me, countdown timer.

    The MOST frequently used features, for me are -

    * alarm functions
    * hourly "sig" function
    * world time zone
    * stop watch
    * 24 H time function

    I am task orientated, so chrono and CDT are very useful. The timestamp works great for jobs that I bill by the hour. World time is 3rd and never use the alarms.
