I'd like to take a moment to thank Sjors very much for posting the "How To" on changing the G-Shock watch battery. :thanks
I recently won a used GL-121 with a dead battery, but the price was too good to pass up. I decided to buy it and try to change the battery myself. Thanks to Sjors' excellent step-by-step instructions and outstanding detailed photographs, I was able to get it done and working great.
The only problem I ran into was I wasn't exactly sure how to "pop up" the battery retainer by looking at the pictures. I wasn't sure if I was supposed to squeeze the little white plastic piece, push it down, in, out, squeeze the metal piece, pop it up, or what. But I played with it a little bit and was able to figure it out.
Then I just did some cleaning (it was filthy!) and put it all back together, cleaned some more, and...VOILA!...a very nice G-Lide for my collection. I'm so excited...like a little kid at Christmas!!! :-D
Here are a couple of low-res pix from my office today (using my camera phone...ughhhh ). I'll post some better ones tonight if I have time.
It's people like Sjors, Oz, and others that make WUS an outstanding forum, and the internet a better place in general.
