    just a friendly note, i think you should stop looking/thinking about this altogether, youve got enough on your plate with the 5000, this could really push you over the edge.

    Thanks for sharing Sky_sun! It's cool that you took part in the development of this watch. Wireless and antenna tuning is a bit of a black art. It's also really awesome to learn that this watch uses a MIP display. It makes sense for this watch, where power consumption constraints are very tight. I can probably guess who the supplier of the display is. :P It must've been a fun project!

    I'll have to see it before saying that the strap is too long. But it seems at the very least, Casio could have used a different, or a second strap keeper to keep the strap END from hanging out so much - since the single strap keeper on it now does not go up near the end of the strap.

    That problem can be solved with a rubber o-ring to hold down the strap end, just like we did initially with the GWF-D1000. There's no way I'd wear this watch with the strap hanging out like that...

    I saw a few pictures of the Rangeman in the other GPR-B1000 thread (https://forums.watchuseek.com/f17/ran...l#post45346261) while being worn.
    This guy his wrist doesn't seem overkill to me, probably around 6,5 to 7 inch. The strap seems to sit normally, just like the old Rangeman.
    I really really like this watch, only have to get over the pricetag but that will happen, I just know ;).
    I have 6,5 inch wrists, and the old Rangeman sits just fine. Isn't too big for me. Really hoping the new Rangeman wears the same as the old one, except being a little bigger and heavier.

    definitely has an interplanetary feel about it haha

    Re: the next new RANGMAN GPR-B1000 ===>800$ ?

    When I tried the watch at CES, the strap didn't feel that long to me. Seemed fairly normal, about as long as the current Rangeman. Here are some pics that I had shared previously without excessive strap overhang. I'm pretty sure that I adjusted the keeper to make sure the strap didn't stick out too far.









    You can see from the last picture that the strap is somewhat normal in length. The buckle and tang was inserted into the 6th or 7th hole. I think you guys might be worrying too much.
