    Smile New gym/training watch - a surprise find

    was out at thye shops today and decided to make a little de-tour to a jewellery shop which is also a Casio G-Shock authorised dealer.

    i have been thinking about replacing my gym/training watch lately - it is getting old and its lacking the seconds function on the main screen.



    so i was browsing their Casio collection and spotted this G-Shock. it looked like a decent sized watch for the gym and looked pretty copol with its analogy and digital time functions, and most importantly it has the digital second function on the main screen.

    i tried on and fell in love with it. it sites right on my wrist and it is very light and the half resin & half fabric strap is very comfy too. i just had to buy it.








    here comes the best part - while i was happy to pay upto £150 for a new gym/training watch, this one had a RRP of £69.99. upon scanning the bar code at the cashier, the sale assistant told me that they have a promotion going on at the moment, so this G-Shock is now only £34.99 - what a bargin:lol: (on top of that, it has a WR rating of 200m :dummy:)

    anyway, wore it to the gym this evening and gave it a "work out", it had my thumbs up and very pleased with the surprise find. here are some more pix.

    apparently this has 29 cities time display - i have only setup Sydney time for now.


    it has a Day function as well (toggle between Date and Day displays)






    the backlite display




    this is my first G-Shock and i can see myself getting another one in the future

    Very classy looking G.

    I believe the nickaname for this one was "What's the watch in the banner at the top of the WUS G-Shock forum" ?
    But I can't really remember now.

    Nice watch!

    I've been wanting to get an ana-digi watch for awhile.

    An ana-digi style watch was the first watch I ever owned.

    That's a good price you got it for!

    I like the Exhaust Wheel version.

    It's fun going to a shop and being knocked over by a model you never considered...

    ...and then getting it for a bargain!!!

    We rarely see this model here.


    How well do the analog hands and digital time sync together?
