    Looking to purchase a G-Shock for college, but have small wrists. What to consider?

    The title pretty much explains it all. I'm returning to college in a few days, and would like to buy a watch for the occasion. :p However, my wrists are fairly small (about 6 inches around). Could anyone provide me with a list of models that might work, keeping in mind I'd like as little overhang as possible?

    I used a DW-5600e for all of college and for everything, swimming, cycling, running, going out, class, and it was like 40 dollars. The squares will be the smallest size. So look into DW-5600e, GW-M5610 (about 110 on amazon). If you find the strap a tad uncomfortable then get a GW-5000 strap for either and it will feel better.

    I think most people would suggest a classic square model of some sort (depending on your budget and aesthetic preferences)
    And that's probably the most sensible choice as well.
    Having said that, I have a pretty small wrist as well (6.2'), and it doesn't stop me from enjoying some of the larger g-shocks.
    They look okay to me, not sure about your preference though

    Rocking a Frogman with 6.2 inch wrists, very cool! I personally do prefer a rounder case so although I may stay away from the larger models, I'd maybe go for a 6900? Thanks for the feedback so far, keep them coming!

    yup, the 6900 is a good choice, it is the best selling G-Shock after all, and there is no shortage of colour options.. the G9000 mudman is also small and would fit well on smaller wrists.. then there is also the Gulfman as well.

    what colour are you looking for?

    Preferably black, since it will be an every day watch and it won't show dirt as much and goes with anything.

    I'm really interested in the DW-6930C. It's more of a watch with sentimental as oppose to practical value I supposed (no tough solar, not atomic).
    But it looks great and it is the 30th anniversary model.

    I am not sure if GW7900B-1 passes as "round," but I think this is a pretty great choice simply because it is such a badass looking g-shock :)

    You can also consider the aviator line
    They are very comfortable on the wrist in my experience. But they are not as convenient as their digital counterparts in terms of functionality

    Well, but they're still too big for You

    BTW, what do You mean with "classic square models", when I hear that, I think usually at GX56...? :-P



    OK, now I'm going back to be serious; there are also some, relatively small, non-square models to go, 7710 (I've discovered it last time and I'm.... in love with it ;) ), 9000, 9100...

    But 5600 would be also OK.

    Just to get a taste... What is that "G"...? Do I need it? The functionality, look, and so on...? ;)

    You'll not spend much money, and You'll give You an opportunity to check, if a G-shock is something for You at all.


    I would do it this way (did it for me, 5600 was my first one :))

    Re: Looking to purchase a G-Shock for college, but have small wrists. What to consider?

    I personally think big watches are really cool but whatever rocks your boat ya know? So I believe, 6900 might be a good choice for you. It's round, it's not as huge, and there are A LOT of 6900 variants around. Since you mention black, here are 8 of them. If these 8 doesn't catch you eyes, then 6900 probably ain't for you =)






    1) G-6900CC-1 (Glossy black bezel and strap with glitters, negative red display, Tough Solar)
