A G-Shock GA-100 review

At the end of October I posted a post called "A cool travel watch" which lightly reviewed a watch I was trying to get you all to buy so I could make a lousy $4 bucks per watch sold.  I liked the product so much I ended up ordering it myself and I wanted to sing it's praises even more.  

The watch is a Casio G-Shock GA-100 Military bad-boy.   The watch came about 9 days after I ordered it so I had plenty of time to read other reviews out there on the 'net.  People raved about the watch and the only reoccurring complaint was the fact that it's hard to see in the dark.   I have to agree with the others, it's an extremely cool watch that makes you feel like a special 'ops solider just wearing it.  While it has a large face it's light on the arm and had already gotten me compliments.

The photo taken below is the actual watch I got, plus a leftover Halloween mini pumpkin.  :-)

And for sure I plan on using it in my travels.  It's good for 200 meters, that's 656 feet!  (I had to Google it)  So next time I'm in the Caribbean I know I can dive, swim, and chill by the beach with it on.   It's also a G-Shock watch so you can beat the hell out of it and it'll stand up to it.  So while your banging your way around in taxis, planes and boats, you won't have to worry about hurting the watch.  It's also runs frozen in a block of ice, so if you forget and leave it in the freezer for some weird reason, you'll be ok there too!   Other travel handy features include:  a stopwatch, timer, multiple alarms, world time and the fact that the watch picks up the time from the airways and sets itself.

But it also looks good for that evening out when you want to hit the club or dine.  I have more expensive watches I might wear to a 4 star restaurant, but for most places, this bad boy will blend in.  So weather you need a strong watch for your travels, for the gym or just bumming around home, I'd seriously consider this watch.

  1. Watches - so old fashioned now. People still buy them? Most phones do everything a watch does - and a whole lot more!
