I posted here about a week ago asking about white G-Shocks as daily beater/gym watch. I decided against going with a white one, for now.
After spending TOO much time at the jewelry display counter @ JCP, I ended up leaving with a G9000 Mudman! It had nifty features but the one that really caught my eye was the progress beeper + flash alert combo. And boy have I made use of it over the week!
The watch fits great! I'm good with the buttons, got the hang of them quick and haven't been a bother. It's not uncomfortable, but I have noticed redness on my wrist where a couple of the textured bumps sit. They don't hurt, and the bumps do tend to remind me that the watch is there when there's some excessive wrist motion. It is making me consider returning/exchanging it =P
I'm thinking of maybe a G9100, mostly cus it also has a 24 hour timer with progress beeper/flash alert =P They carry it online, but not in store so I can't try it on or play with it beforehand =( Does it wear similarly to the Mudman? On paper they have similar dimensions. Is the display as crisp, and have similar contrast as the G9000? Are the time, day, and date digit size the same size?
Or am I better off keeping the Mudman and maybe filing / smoothing out the 2 troublesome bumps? =P
