    Which one to get?

    New Rangeman is appealing but the display is negative. Right now between GW-B5600BC-1JF and GMW-B5000G-1JF, due in April. Any reason to prefer one over the other?

    Personal preferences, price?
    I would of opted for 5600 because i like lighter watches and don't really sold on stainless at least while looking at them from a far.
    It should be special!

    I agree that lighter is better.
    Wondering if the functionality is identical.

    They (G-Central) claim function vise 5000=5600 despite different modules
    There are few people on the forum who own 5600 and i not sure about having both. Hope they sound their opinion.

    What is the GMW-B5000G-1JF?? Full metal? Color? Positive/neg display? Please post a pic. I could not find it anywhere...

    The GW-B5600BC may be close or the same functionally, but for me, the full metal squares win, hands-down. Yes they are heavier, but the quality is obvious in their build. And you get used to the weight rather quickly. Right now, the GMW-B5000s in general are the pinnacle of Casio G-shock squares, IMO. (Though sometimes I do prefer resin, and for those times it’s the GW-5000.)

    The full metal watches are nice but too heavy for me to wear with pain.

    Thanks! Oh, wow, how did I miss that?? That looks like the long-awaited re-do of the GW5K, except with a metal bezel. Larger buttons, BT, and I’m sure the STN display. That one could be pretty awesome!!!
