    G Shock watches

    Anyone have one? Know anything about them? Wife got me one as a gift, said she thought it was durable and good to wear shooting. Owned a Casio calculator watch as a young'in but don't know anything about them today.

            Not crazy about the one she got me, everything is black and I can't see alot of it. Thinking I'm going to swap it out for this one. Just didn't know if they were reliable and durable, sounds like they are.

                    The reverse button should illuminate the display

                      I have several and they are the most durable better than my tracer and my suunto core POS

                        On the back, it should say "Casio gw100" or similar

I know the watches have to be somewhat limited, because of the limited screen real estate. Then again, I know better than to underestimate technology.

                          I could also be wrong, so really I guess I am asking if it is worth it to get one of the Casio's with GPS, or is not worth it with most phones having built in GPS?

                            I've been using G Shocks since the early 90's and they've delivered. Not as sexy as others - but they work.
