    Mudman question

    I was looking at a Mudman today and noticed that the buttons were kind of hard to push is that because its new or because that's how the butons are???

    It's how they are.

    i guess that's a part of the mud resist feature. I really like this watch, but i also like the new g that has the two CDTs. They;re billing it as a runners watch. What do you all think of this watch vs. the mudman. I seem to see more people into the mudman.

    I agree. It's a side-effect of the mud resistance, and not a big deal. When I first got mine I was surprised at the stiffness, but very quickly got used to it. I quite like the other watch, but I wouldn't choose it over a Mudman.

    I never thought they were that hard to start with, I don't even notice it anymore. They stick out so far, you can fat finger it easy and make them work.

    I ditto that! If you have an extra membrane over the buttons (that is what the mud resistant structure actualy is) you might expect this. They will loosen up a bit and you will get used to it.

    I find the pushers uncomfortable hard to press, probably the reason why I wear my G-9000 not very often....

    Me too, although in my case, it was the reason I sold the two I had. I didn't have problems pressing them, but I had problems pressing them with precision, unless I was deliberate with my actions. Starting or stopping a countdown, for example, just took more concentration than I thought was reasonable.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...
