    Rate the squares

    Without sentimentality nor historical rationale, how would you order these (positive display versions) in terms of comfort, functionality, and legibility:
    gw-m5610
    gw-5000
    gw-b5600?

    My 5610 is my most uncomfortable G shock. It never sits the right way on my wrist. My cheap DW 5600e wears much better.

    Re: Rate the squares

    As far as comfort goes, you might get different answers based on members wrist size.

    I think the GW-B5600 is extremely comfortable and it disappears on my wrist since it's super light with the Combi 2.0.

    Out of the 3, I also think the GW-B5600 has the clearest display. I appreciate the functionality of this watch but I could do without the Bluetooth - but that's just me and I might be the minority. I very rarely use the app and I just hate having to log into it to see my battery level + it tends to eat up more battery than regular Solar/MB modules.

    Aesthetically it's a tie between the GW-5000 and GW-M5610 for me...I do like like how clean and symmetrical the 5000 display is, but to me, it's missing something..maybe a bit more color? And yes, I love the color arrangement on the GW-M5610.

    And that is why I own all 3....

    1. Gw-5000 1jf
    1.5. 5610
    2. 5600

    I own gw-5000 1jf it's on the combi-bracelet from my gw-m5610bc-1jf that I sold with the strap from the gw-5000 1jf.
    I rated it a very close 1.5 as I really like the negative display but I like the weight better on the gw-5000 1jf.
    I've never owned the last one.

    Does the B5600 have an STN display?

    By the way, is there any difference in loudness?

    Re: Rate the squares

    Only owning a GM-W5610 in the square department, i fully agree with Ryanjeepguy.
    The module is simple and reliable, the watch itself is light and quite small, but the strap... Well, let's say it's not the best part of the deal.
    I know there is a carbon fibre strap available (don't own it, not planning to get it for this watch), but it would already be a huge improvement if the softer resin from the pro-trek line was used.

    they advertise it as STN and it's clearer than my other squares, but it's nowhere as clear as my GMWs...

    I'd say is partially STN :o)
