    Recommended G-Shock for Law Enforcer?

    Looking to get some help identifying a candidate G-Shock (or other Manufacturer) for a Law Enforcement officer who spends majority of time outdoors in hot, dirty, rugged environments chasing bad guys through the brush. Some considerations I have are: durability to impact during scuffles, functionality for the job (extra features key to type of job, i.e. 24-hour time, thermometer, compass, etc.), color (must be standard issue black, or as close to it as possible), and of course, price.

    Any and all help is greatly appreciated. If you make a recommendation, suggestions on where to acquire the watch are also appreciated (best price, best seller, etc.).

    G9300 is great and all but it is one of the biggest g-shocks which something that needs to be considered if your wristst are on the small side. Another gret g with key basic features, while not being edtremely huge, is the gw 6900. It does not get whole lotta love here but it has 24 hour CT, can display two time zones on the main screen and is solar. To me, thats all i need.

    You won't and can't beat a GW6900. Doesn't have a compass or thermometer, but then again, I cannot tell why you'd require this as a LEO. Anyways the GW6900 has the following features:

    Go with a mudman 9000-1V its made for mud, dirt and impacts like most Gs just feels comfortable as far as the band goes the bezel is also very
    low profile height wise not too bad. her is a pic of it. A 5600E wouldvalso be a great watch they can be purchase for about $40 compare to the Mudman that can be around $70 to $85..Try to stay with a positive display G they are easier to read while driving. The mudman bottons can be hard to push but for the type of work you do this may be a good thing. once you set the time it should keep it from accidental setting switching. good luck and stay safe.

    I recommend both the 6900 and 5600. Simple and reliable. You don't want to wear a fancy watch for work especially as a policeman.

    I am with Supawabb. I think the GW-6900 has the best features for a good price and a low profile look.

    Cheers,

    I recommend the Riseman, it wears smaller than its size, the altimeter should help when you are chasing the bad guys through a rugged terrain with variable altitudes, the barometer can predict the weather change when you prepare an ambush (to wear or not to wear a raincoat...)

    9300 is the deal! Tough watch with useful features. The best Casio has out out so far in my sort of humble opinion.

    A good feature on the Mudman is that the strap is held on to the watch body with screws rather than springbars. If you're grappling with some crook and your watch gets pulled, it's much more likely to stay on your wrist.
