    Riseman the perfect watch?

    ive owned a few risemans, and mudmen, feature rich watches, but honestly im guessing for the most part, your average person, never needs altitude, thermometer, compass etc.

    I love the riseman, love the look of it love the shape of it, but i cant help but feel like it would be better served if it contained different options, i wrecked my brain last night thinking of every day useful things to put on a riseman, and the most useful i found other than the stock world time, stop watch etc, is a data bank, i love the fact the frog has a data bank, how useful would this be on a riseman instead of the other features.

    I wish Casio would consider putting this on one of there G's

    Can ayone think of any other features?

    Well, the G-2900 has a data bank, and costs lots less then a Riseman:


    And besides, some say that the Riseman isn't the toughest of Gs...

    ALMOST perfect.
    It lacks a compass and a proper case.

    Ive never bonded with my Riseman. Not sure why.

    Also, I never use data bank functions. The entry is too cumbersome and time consuming. So to me, databank functions are just about as useless as time memo functions :) (for me...)

    Well, with the G-2900 it's not exactly a breeze to input the info, but once there, the access is easy (if you don't password-protect it, of course).

    Average person will use C over AB though. Feng-Shui is important.

    Re: Riseman the perfect watch?

    Hi, I would add additionnal features in the priority list:
    - possibility to lock pressure or altitude, like in Suunto Core, for enhanced measuring of altitude or atmosphearic pressure;
    - compass;
    - sunset / sunrise times;
    - moon phase.

    The reason why I baught Riseman was for perfect time keeping (including multiple time zones, atomic syncing) and ABT functionality, so I would not omit those features.

    The additional features I listed could make this watch from very good to perfect. I need these features because I like biking and fishing. So they could help a lot predicting weather and fishing patterns.

    Otherwise this is extremely good and durable watch - it already suffered a few bumps, full submersions in water and it just keeps working.

    They look good in the wrist. I've noticed a few people with Risemans in the local pool hall, and the little bit of chrome glinting away on the sensor body really makes a subtle but pleasing difference.

    I think a Riseman with moon phase and a screwback case would be awesome, but I can't see Casio doing that any time soon.
