    Question Pushing the buttons on a Muddy underwater?

    Is it safe to push the buttons underwater? I thought I'd ask before I actually try it.

    If you search for this you will find dozens on topics asking this question. I believe that most (if not all) the G-shock manuals say not to press the buttons underwater. Many people claim they have had no problems in doing this though.

    Yep - the older manuals - even the manual for the standard G-9000 says it's ok to push the buttons if the watch is rated to 100m or more. Only in the newer manuals does Casio say you shouldn't do it - probably to avoid warranty claims - I don't think they changed anything technically. Normally the pushers are sealed with o-rings so it shouldn't be a problem. In the manuals for the new GW-2000 they even say you shouldn't take a G-Shock scuba diving which was always allowed by the older manuals. Seems like Casio cuts down on the stuff you're supposed to be able to do with a watch on every new generation of G-Shock. Soon they'll tell us we better not take the watch out of the box because it might get broken while using it. Îf that's supposed to be the G-Shock toughness that with every generation they can take less abuse not more - then I'll soon stop buying any new G at all.

    And the mudman is no more water resistant than other non-ISO Gs (meaning everything but the Frogman...the Frogman is technically the most water resistant G). The rubber button covers do nothing to prevent the intrusion of wather...they prevent mud from interfering with the button operation.
