I recently got the AWG-100 as i was really looking for an analog watch with all the chronographic features, medium to small size, and with the ability to wake me up.
Well, it had everything but the ability to wake me up. I was disappointed w/ the volume of the "beeping" and the lack of a snooze feature.
So now i turn to the overlooked 7510 and ask your opinions as well as a few answers to specific questions.
How big is this watch compared to mine (AWG 100)? My AWG 100 is the perfect size and i guess i could go a little bigger, but i'd rather keep this size.
Can the alarm sound and vibrate at the same time, or is it either or? I'm curious, i sometimes need both sound and feeling to get my attention.
Should i be concerned that this watch lacks the Solar/Atomic features? That was one of the biggest selling points for the AWG 100 was the rechargeable battery and the fact it would account for time zones. Not to mention that it always has the correct time thanks to the radio signals.
On that note, how's the battery life? Should i be concerned that it doesn't have a rechargeable battery? How long should it last me roughly?
Think the alarm will be any louder or that the vibration will be enough to wake me if it's on my wrist at night? This is probably the main reason i'm looking into this watch. If it won't wake me up in the morning, I can't justify buying it. I know people are different and sleeping patterns aren't all the same, but take a shot at it.
They don't make this watch anymore it seems (or it's hard to find)... does that mean it's "G-Shock" technology is out of date in the slightest? I wanna make sure i can beat the hell out of this thing, drag it through the mud, survive sandstorms, and take it to the depths of the oceans.
So i'm trying to weight the pros and cons of these 2 watches so i can decide. The two biggest things i'd be giving up if i switched are the Atomic/Solar combination and the Analog display.
Anyways, if you can answer these questions for me and give your personal opinion (or testimony) for this watch i'd really appreciate it!
