    Re: WRUW Thursday 8 August 2019

    New arrival :D what a great way to end the week!
    Officially part of the g steel club and have assimilated to the borg with G connected! lol

    Initial impressions
    things I like:
    - Im not a blingy guy, I don’t have anything shiny, metally (i dont count the mrgg cos its dlc'd :p ) but these caught my eye instantly. It’s a well rounded (literally too!) design with a classy feel. The price def. more pocket friendly than the mtgb’s I was looking at previously.
    - I like the layout of the face compared to the other g steels. Simply and effective and a second hand to raise the profile.
    - The size is great if youre hovering around or below 7”. Weight is light but it still has enough substance to let you know its there and remind you theres some steel hanging off it.
    - Bluetooth sync is a breeze, two taps on my phone (open the app, turn on bt), one button press on the watch and its done in about 5 sec. faster than setting it manually and its guaranteed done, not a maybe done or in my case, never done, with mb6.
    - quick release band = a bunch of band options in the future
    - (looks like) a easy swappable bezel, a blacked out resin one will be on the cards if it is
    - finally having the date in the right format! Of course it had to be 8th of the 8th today lol but im looking forward to not having to read it backwards

    Things im going to have to get used to/wishlist:
    - the non functional crown and its sharp edges, itll smooth down with a bit of wear, wearing it a bit looser in the meantime
    - qr nubs on the band could get gunked up if its not cleaned regularly.
    - qr band is nifty but part of the uniqueness of each model was the band, sure it disappointed the nato clan but it gave each model more personality, now is a rather generic flat strap which the little bit of texturing cant save. Looks like it could be from any number of faceless “sportz” watches.
    - currently in between holes on the band, looking fwd to summer to push me towards the bigger hole
    - while I like the face layout, its not practical for a big chunk of my time viewing day ie. Between 10am and 2pm where theres two hands blocking the date.
    - the app insisting (persisting?) to run in the back ground, tho I only plan on syncing once every month or so, if that, so its no big deal to close it and only open it when needed.
    - im a little concerned for the streamlined shiny bezel, its going to show marks and dings pretty easily. Hoping the bezel is an easy swap and the ring is the $3 part not the $50 one on pacparts!
    - wish it had the classic ‘ + ’ raised sections on the bezel at 12, 3, 6, 9. Even just a 1mm tapered wedge would lift the look at add a lot more protection imo.
    - liking this has me much more keen on a ggb100 muddie or a "ggb1000" if it eventuates. rip wallet ):

    that all said, going by the glance per minute rate, I think its doing pretty well so far

    Now to do something about that fuel gauge, its like me, could really use a drink right about now :p

    Great pieces!
    Does the Camo band make the watch look bigger? I am considering a camo outfit for mine!
