i am new to this forum and pretty new to g-shocks also, although i owned one when i was about 10-11 years old but i hadn't realized its importance then :)
so i would like to buy me a new g but i can't decide which one...
first...are there any reliability related differences between g series? like GW, MTG and regular G's?
my first candidates are
as you can see, i prefer a metal band.
so is there any difference between the last 2 models? i'm asking for differences not listed in the specifications sheet ;)
also...what do you think about the first one, g510? so any differences in reliability between ana-digi and fully digital g's?
oh and is the solar power ability really useful? i heard stories about g's that kept functioning for about 15 years with the original battery (although the battery type wasn't mentioned). g510 hasn't solar power, but a battery with a 3 years lifetime, so this is its primary drawback. is there any chance the battery would last longer than 3 years? should i get a solar powered watch?
and about the atomic sync function...what do you think? is it worth it? i live in romania and should be able to receive the german signal...
and frankly the g510 is pretty weak in features compared to the other two. so why do all the 3 models have the same price?
allright i`m finished :D thanks for having the patience to read this and any replies would be greatly appreciated :)
