    Need a watch (not necessarily G) recomendation

    Hey guys!

    Alright, here's the deal. I'm training in my job right now, which I love, but... I'm struggling a little right now. I need a watch with an automatically recurring countdown timer that vibrates. Basically, I either get task saturated, or I just plain forget to do a basic task every 10-15 minutes. A watch with this function could be a very valuable training tool for me starting out. Prefer something on the cheaper side, since I absolutely love my g7900, and I just bought a gw6900. A regular chime alarm won't work as its very loud in 'the office' and I wear hearing protection and ear cups.

    Thanks

    Hi,
    the Casio "Futurist" A-220 has a vib alarm and a countdown timer with auto-repeat - module 1922:

    It's pretty cheap, too. Can be found easily on ebay or amazon - I suggest taking the version with the normal display not the inverted one - they are harder to read.

    Hey Sedi, thanks! Though that watch is not really my style, it definitely set me up on the right path. I checked it out on amazon, and was 50 bucks, which isn't bad at all. However, amazon suggested I check out the g7510-1vdr. It appears to have countdown timer with auto-repeat, and I'm praying that it vibrates at 0 on the countdown, but I wouldn't see why it wouldn't. Also! I picked it up for 25 dollars. It was 45, and I had a 20 dollar gift card, and I have a prime account so its free 2 day shipping. I couldn't NOT afford to take this deal. Hopefully this watch helps keep me on track!

    Thanks again, Sedi

    I have a G7500 wearing it now. Not sure of all the timer functions as I dont use all of them The vibration has a sort of countdown sequence where it vibrates a few times I think in the last min. Nice G Big easy to read digits.

    The G-7500/7510 is a good choice also ! It has only a 60 min timer however - the A220 has a 24 hr timer but that won't matter if you only need 10-15 min.
