So I tend to be very hard on things that are attached to me. Any jewelry, watches, clothing, etc all get but through a rough and usually short life. After my oh say 5th or 6th Ironman by timex watch failed for the 3rd time, I decided to go another route. I just picked up a Casio G-Shock. The main reason I picked the G-Shock is because I have read/heard that they are as close to bomb proof as you can get. Well we are going to see about that. I picked up the GD-100-B. It is a digital only watch with a negative face, meaning that the text is lighter than the background. This doesnt seem to bother me much during normal use and the backlight lights up the entire screen increasing the contrast. I picked the somewhat basic version that comes with a few (5?) alarms and stop watch,timer, dual timezone, blah blah. The one thing I am kinda worried about is the band. I have never been a fan of the rubbery/plastic bands although this one isnt too bad. I have already sourced where to get alternative after market bands. Well now that I have it we will have to see if it holds up. Seems pretty solid so far. Only time in the field will tell. Anyone else wearing a gshock?
