Great Watch... But

Summary: The watch is as promised part. But after you go through the trouble of calibrating it as per the instructions you should have NO PROBLEMS. As far as the timekeeping goes it's a 10/10. The Barometer is also accurate 10/10, even to the hundredth. I've never had to reset or alter it, it's a great watch and an asset for the most part.
Summary: just got my G Shock and boy this thing is cool stealth display fast ordered late Sunday at my front door by Friday and a great deal brand new in shoe box but the G Shock is bad little damage on band yes it is used but a 130.00 dollar watch for 75.00 that looks brand new you rock thank you. I will buy again.
Summary: The watch arrived today and it is everything I wanted - a different appearing timepiece that measures barometric pressure and temperature on my wrist. The watch can be calibrated for a nearly accurate temperature measurement (it will vary slightly with your body temperature). Wear the watch for 30 minutes to an hour. Then follow the temperature calibration instructions (E-26) with the watch still on your wrist. This measurement is accurate enough for me.
Summary: its a g-shock: big, resistant, nothing to worry about. but the extras (thermometer, altimeter and barometer) are not reliable. the thermometer catches the heat of your body, so you need to take it out and wait to get a proper temperature. the altimeter and barometer go crazy all the time. it is a good watch for general use, but no good if you depend on the informations from the extras.
Summary: Thanks to strong Japanese YEN, it was cheaper than purchasing in Japan. There are some similar watches from CASIO, but it is the best one in terms of size, design, function and price. The only drawback is that it is a bit hard to see characters even in daytime due to the recess position of LCD and the low contrast of characters.
Summary: This watch is what I have been looking for, even though I don't need a barometric pressure gauge i like the Altitude, and temperature gauge are a nice touch. Comes in a nice box, and new heptagon shaped tin box, with a nice and thick small manual. So the down side is the Temperature gauge cannot read accurately while it's on your wrist. Due to your body heat, a design flaw, but something that isn't a deal breaker for me.
Summary: I have had many high speed watches in my day but this one is one of my favorites! Rugged, easy to use and just a great watch for anyone who works outdoors. Very accurate (you must know how to use a baromoter and understand that the temp will be higher than the actual temp when the watch is on your arm) and user friendly. The led light is BRIGHT! All in all, I really like this watch even when compared to my Suunto MI X9 ($500 watch).
Summary: the watch looks awsome but the barometer and altimeter fluctuate even after multiple times setting. for example i travel from sea level to 4000 ft and have reset at both elevations and when i return i'm off from 140-60 ft. the temp sensor is affected by body heat so the watch must be off for a few minutes to register correctly.
