    The Search is Over - DW290 & G9000

    After extensive research, the search is over ... the winners are ...

    FIRST PLACE = DW-290
    SECOND PLACE = G-9000 Mudman

    Here are a few pics ...

    That's a nice pair. I'm curious how you rate the G9000 second to the DW290 though. Is it just the looks you prefer?

    For me, the benefits of the DW290 are:
    - seems to sit smoother on the wrist.
    - the band is also more flexible and more comfortable.
    - the display seems to read a bit clearer at a quick glance.
    - the buttons operate very smoothly and feel great.
    - the alarm and hourly chime are easy to flick on & off at night and morning.

    The MudMan is a close second however. Definately a keeper.

    The mudman looks much better imo. (though not in that color, the beige or the dark green!!)

    Great score sml, both are very nice watches, I have the DW-290 as well, its a great everyday, functional watch. My kid dropped it from about 3 meters and it landed on the floor with a loud 'cack'.

    No dent, no effects, even though it is not a 'G'.

    Enjoy them!
