    Solar G's: does the alarm work in power saving mode?

    What happens to the alarm feature in power save mode on a solar powered G?

    If my watch shuts down at night, all well and good that I can fire it back up by pushing a button, but can I count on the alarm to wake me up?

    I definitely need a reliable alarm and I'm hoping the GW2310-1 Atomic Solar I just ordered will serve.

    Thoughts?

    yes, it will still work. power saving mode does not mean the watch is turned off. it's like a sleep mode. it will stay in sleep mode until it gets interrupted.

    Thanks G-Junkie. That's what I figured, but I couldn't find it spelled out anywhere.

    Power saving mode just turns off the display. Hourly chimes, alarms, and nightly atomic sync all still occur on schedule.
    The best watch is the one that makes you happiest... and tells the time.

    Yes - my GW2000 does this every night.
