    So I was close to buying a Mudmaster and then this poped up on the radar... I'll definitely be waiting to hear more about this new model.

    - I love the larger, crisper, cleaner display. It's a time keeping device first and foremost and so I find the basic display very refreshing... Time and date, Boom! Push a button if you need something else.

    - I seriously hope the basic functions can be run indefinitely from only the battery + solar power... I don't want to have to recharge the watch just to keep it telling time.

    - I'm intrigued to know how the ceramic case back feels against skin... I'm betting it will stick less and feel "warmer" than stainless.

    - Is it Spring yet!?

    If it requires charging on a regular basis I'm out. I have a phone for that. If not, I'm in!

    hmm the display looks quite similar to the WSD-F20.
    but seeing as this hopefully is not android wear, should hopefully extend its battery life significantly...
    as it is, the F20 has a month long battery life in watch mode.
    of cos, in GPS mode it shouldnt last for more than a day which is on par with most other watches out there.

    also has a proper wireless charging solution, so thankfully one doesnt have to rely on the slow-ass solar charging every day.

    but i really dont see the price of this dropping much from its $800 SRP for quite a while...cos the WSD-F20 came out 8 months ago and it still hasnt dropped much in price from its initial $500 SRP...zzz.

    Exactly. If heavy GPS/BT use requires recharging I'm cool with that... Can't expect less with current battery tech. But if normal everyday use requires it I'm not interested.

    Why does the dial have hour indices like an analogue watch? Silly design feature, they should ditch those.

    Well there's only 8 of them so it would make a rather awkward analog dial, lol. Perhaps they are directional indices for the compass?

    Do not kill me, but this watch is terrible! How can I prefer this one to Fenix 5X, or Suunto... How?
