New "Discover G Shock"

SO DUMB. New Casio GM2100 with adaptors instead of lugs.

If I'm not mistaken Casio is the biggest watch brand in the world with well over 100 million g-shocks sold. But somehow they still manage to screw up...

CitizenKale commented on What is the most important deciding factor for you when purchasing a watch?
  1. Within my price range so I can get it.

  2. Comfort so I'll actually use it.

  3. Must have the functions I need otherwise there's no point. (Timer, countdown, etc.)

  4. Everything else - looks. reliability, toughness, brand, ease of use, water resistance, legibility, etc.

Doesn't leave me with a ton of options but there are a few casios that fit most of what I'm asking for.

Lol yeah I love the comfort and regular features but the run mode is bad. Lucky I only skateboard and there's no button for that.

Quick tip. Switch over to the regular timer modes. It won't lag and you can easily set multiple sets of timer alarms that go one after the other or a regular stopwatch. It just won't record the workout to your phone. As a bonus you can disable Bluetooth and gain some extra years of battery life.

Thanks.

Yeah I tried the 2100 in a store. Very nice watch. Very lightweight too.

Yeah it's really nice

Good plan. Can't go wrong with any of them in my opinion.

I'd just try them in a store if you can because the fit is very different between them.

CitizenKale commented on Please help me before it's too late.

If you like it, get it.

Though personally I hold off on impulse purchases because I don't want to waste money and I don't want my house filled with crap. So I wait, check some reviews, consider if it's really gonna get used and if it's worth the money. - and also what else I can do with that money if I save it.

Sewer watches? Surly they are poop? And don't call me Shirley!

My curiosity sometimes gets the better of me and I walk into this sh*thole of a store on the way to the supermarket. I've mentioned it in an earlier p...

Does the large text look stupid?

I really like the large text at night because it's very readable in low light. But I also think it makes the watch look less like a sports watch and m...
