So the main thing I would recommend people weigh out in their head before buying this watch is if they like how it looks. If you like it and the price seems reasonable to you then I would say you'll be extremely happy with the purchase. Build quality, performance and reliability in my experience so far have been every bit as good as you would expect from a G-shock. My only slight niggle with it would be that it does wear a little small so if your wrist size is over seven inches and/or you want something really substantial, then I would look to consider a different model.
I love this watch. Has all the G-Shock features you want. I like the colour and style off the watch. Feels light on the wrist.The face is easy to read most of the time. The only reason I am taking one star off is because it can be a bitch tricky to read in certain lighting. However, the light function on the watch does help with reading the face.
The watch and strap is great. Rugged and it does all the things its supposed to BUT the display is VERY difficult to read. You have to angle your wrist to just the right angle to catch the light or the display cannot be read. This seems to be as a result of the "white digits on a black background" design of the display as opposed to the more normal black digits.The white on black looks cool but it is just so difficult to actually read.
