    Is there a G-Shock with > 24hrs countimer timer and is a waveceptor?

    Is there a G-Shock out there that has a countdown timer greater than 1 hour, ideally larger as possible (such as the G-7700) and is wave ceptor?

    I don't think so, at least none that I'm aware of. the closest you will get is with the PAW-1300 series, though no G so...

    This is really the only weakness of the GW-400 imho...

    ...a one hour CDT.


    I actually can't see why there's this limitation on such an often used function. They need to be at least 2 hours long which will cover most things, but the digits are there to make it 24hr one would have thought.

    This is my biggest complaint about G-Shocks in general. The newer the model, the more limited the basic features get. Yes, all the new high-tech bells and whistles are nice, but why won't Casio figure out a way to keep the functionality as high as it is in the DW-5600, 6900, 6600 and 9052?

    I don't need a pretty, fancy G-Shock. Gimme them old school tools any day!

    The GW-400J has all the functions I need minus the CDT from the G-7700 but one thing that stops me buying this watch is the hideous looks!! Looks like I'll have to play the waiting game and see if Casio bring something out at some point.

    Ridiculous isn't it. They can pack all that stuff in an atomic/solar Pathfinder, but won't do the same for a G-Shock.
    Wear what you like.

    Now if they put the Pathfinder module into a Frogman casing.
