    Rangeman yes or Rangeman not?

    I have a small wrist. A picture is better than 100 words.
    I would like to buy a Rangeman, I like its big eye and the blue led (please post some pics of it) but don't know if it is top big for me.
    What do you think? How about thermomether accuracy?
    If your say Rangeman is too big, I will buy a GW6900 or a DW6900.

    If you have a small wrist like me (6,5") it might be too big. For me it was. I have worn it for a month and I slowly started
    to discover the disadvantages of such a big watch. Right after that I decided to buy the PRW-3000. I do not regret the buy and I
    certainly never will.

    The LED isn't blue, though it might seem so in some pictures. It actually is white.

    Thermometer accuracy is good, but you do have to take it off your wrist 20 to 30 minutes for an accurate temperature reading.
    On the wrist the watch will heat up and actually display the temperature of your wrist.

    This is a personal thing, maybe other people with small wrists do like the Rangeman,
    just my 2 cents...

    Kind regards,
    Marc

    That 5600 looks huge on you, so a Rangeman will look that much bigger. Not saying you can't wear it, but it will stand out as a very large watch, so you have to decide if that's the look you want.

    The 5600 looks just right on your wrist. I have a tiny wrists, but large arms overall so the Rangeman looks all right in the mirror. You should take into consideration your overall body build. I wear mine above the wrist bone so it doesn't interfere when I flex my wrist.

    Don't worry about the size. If you like the RangeMan just go for it. Yea, it will be too big initially but you'll quickly get used to it. And once you do you'll stick with the dark side and larger watches will be the only way to go. (Except in the winter time... it still bugs me a bit that RangeMan is not the easiest thing to use when it's hidden behind a rather thick jacket but hey... I'm used to it by now...)

    I see I'm not the only one who secretly posed with watch in front of the mirror wondering if the size and look are right...

    We're talking about only watches, right?

    I think that the Rangeman will be too big, but the Riseman GW-9200 will be perfect (I would take that over the 6900 any day).
