So after about 3 weeks of waiting, I finally received my new G Shock Sky Cockpit. I have to say, though, that I'm not really lovin' this new watch.
The main reason is because most if not all the sub-fuctions use the small right sub-dial which is tiny and on a 24 hour scale.
So if you're using the timer, the max elapsed time is 24 minutes, with each little hash marker representing a minute. Even if my eyes were 20 years younger, you'd have a hard time timing somthing cause it's so hard to see the minute markers (ironic given that accurracy is supposed to be down to 1/100th of a second).
You also use the subdial to set the alarm. Keep in mind, though, that there's 2 hours between each major hash mark, not 1 and it makes even doing a simple task like that a bit more challenging and frustrating.
Finally, it's also used as a 24-hour subdial for a second time. In this role, I guess it's fine as long as the minute hand isn't blocking it.
The other thing is that I thought it would synch with an atomic clock closer to HNL. However, if you set your home city to HNL, it syncs to the atomic clock in Ft. Collins. I have yet to get a signal way out here.
The one feature that may pursuade me to keeping it is that it can be set up to quickly swap times between 2 time zones. That's pretty helpful. Also the lum isn't too bad.
