    Lowest temperature a G-Shock, Pathfinder or Pro Trek can survive?

    I'm watching a program right now about snow (the only thing on tv worth watching!) and it got me wondering... my new Pro Trek says it can go down to -10 and my Riseman -20 degrees.

    Has anyone been down to lower temperatures than this with their watch and if so, how do they cope?

    The day it arrived I decided to put my Riseman to the test and placed it in the freezer. It didn't tell temperature anymore after about an hour, which was probably around -20C. The buttons felt a bit 'frozen' when pushing them and the module reacted slow to the pushing of the buttons, like it was operating in 'slow-motion'.
    After a couple of minutes all was fine again

    conclusion: your freezer is probably colder than -20C

    My mudman which is supposed to withstand cold temps does so, however, because it was put together in a high humidity area you get fog/condensation on the inside of the face when in cold weather. I've tried to get rid of this by many means, but no luck. still functions in low temps, but hard to read!

    I've made plenty G-Shocksicles in my time, all of which have held up just fine. As previously mentioned, the functions/display does slow down a good amount. It's always back to normal right after though.

    Thanks for all the replies. It's good to know they can survive the cold temps

    Any Pro Trek experiences? With those being only -10 degrees resistant, I wondered how they'd survive at -20 and below
