Surely this has to be named: "The RangeBeast"
As a Garmin Fenix 3 wearer having shelved my original Rangeman permenantly (gave it to my son), I’m interested in if this one can display notifications from the phone and allows you to set up alarms for just say weekday mornings. You get used to these things and although the Fenix is pretty tough I’d really like to have that ultimate durability of a G-Shock back.
Everything else about this watch sounds spot on but we have no real clarity on these two points yet unless anyone knows something I don’t.
Some, if not most, of the times, I would leave my phone on my desk at home or at the office and I would be away from my desk, sometimes in another room. I would totally miss call or text msg in those cases. Having the phone at least let me know who called or texted would be very helpful so that I don't have to check my phone to see if I have messages every time I go back to my desk.

Does the watch give GPS coordinates in multiple formats (Lat/Long, UTM, etc.)? Can the user switch map datum? What about declination adjustments?

When you’re in a meeting or in the pool or otherwise can’t get to your phone it’s nice to be able to read the full notification on your wrist. You get the full notification on a watch like the Fenix 3 so there’s no need to check further details on your phone. You get a text message or a tweet you’re set to get notifications on, you can read the whole thing on a smartwatch. Not just a buzz to notify you there’s a notification as maybe some other watches do.
