    Recommend a G-Shock for bigger wrists! help!

    so i normally wear a Fossil Architekt or a Citizen Eco-Drive, and i decided to get an all-digital watch. naturally i found my way to the G-Shocks looking around online, so i bought a DW-5600E:



    i like it, BUT - i have to wear it on the next-to-last notch, because my wrist is nearly too large for it. several times since i bought it (brand new) it has fallen off my wrist from being stretched too far or clasped too close to the end of the strap.

    are there g-shock models made for larger wrists, or do i just buy whatever watch i want and purchase longer wristbands for it? what are my options?

    help me out, guys :)

    You can put adapters on most G Shocks so you can wear them with a Zulu type resin strap should be long enough. I love my Pathfinder PRG 80 its almost G Shock strong but extra large with BIG digits and a very long strap.

    Wrist size? Budget? Solar/Atomic? I'm a Atomic Frogman addict and it is perfect for large wrists but it is expensive and there are some other G's out there that are as big and cost a lot less. Check out the GX line or the 200 series of frogman. Both work for large wristed guys. Good luck.

    wrist size is about 8.25"

    budget is anywhere from $60 - $130. bought the 5600 because of the overwhelming reviews, i like it fine but it's too snug.

    atomic/solar would be cool but not a dealbreaker either way, i would buy one with or without those features.

    was looking at the GX56 earlier today, but didnt know if "biggest" meant just the watch face/casing or band and all. do g-shocks have sizes or are they all "fits all"?

    can a few of you guys do this for me: what's your wrist-size, what g-shock do you wear most, and how roomy is it? that should give me a good idea which model fits what size.

    would really appreciate anyone taking the time :)

    8.25, Atomic frogman, fourth notch from end. 200 series third notch from end. Not tight, not loose. Just right.
