In theory how long the tough solar battery can last before the battery KO? Same here... i only buy tough solar model and hope that it will last me until old age without having to change battery.

I have heard bad comments when you open up the g shock to change battery.. usually got issue after that...

yes...usually the waterproof gone...

Because most Gshocks have plastic body and the back cover is attached using those four screws. I think Once the screws are removed, the plastic body, housing for the screw threads will be compromised so, it makes sense that its never gonna be the same again after a back case removal and reinstall procedure.

i am not yet convinced G Shock can do a proper fitness watch...so i'll wait and see...even Garmin, the earlier design of fitness watch fell flat...got issue and not working properly... having learnt my lesson from that experience, better not jump into the 1st design...

yeah...let's wait for review and official hands on... GPS turn on...fur running...and with HRM on... i doubt the tough solar can really work... because previously to charge from M to H...for tough solar...also takes a while already...that's for normal watch only...

One thing is for sure, i'll be closely monitoring and see the reviews/comments first... icon_rolleyes.gif thumbup.gif thumbsup.gif

Cant comment on the workability or functionality since I havent got me hands on it. On paper it have dual method of charging .. fast charging via USB cable and Solar charging via Sunlght or artificial light which even is present.

I do trust Casio tough solar and it does deliver whats being promised on the battery time lasts between chargers.

dude...the heart rate max really measured up to 220 for your own HR?
or it's just telling you the range of HR the watch can measure?

Wow... so in Malaysia now also can make use of the atomic clock function? Using app.. and so need bluetooth ya? Any model with BT and atomic clock will work the same?

QUOTE(zad78 @ Jun 29 2020, 08:08 PM)
The black beauty. Fit beautifully even though I have small wrist. The best thing about this watch is the ability to sync with the atomic clock using app.

I only buy limited edition from G factory and those hot watches e.g. Gbdh1000, one piece etc. since their price will always be retail and not those scalper prices.

dear all, i wanted to check if the rangeman 9400-3, is the price around RM1k the standard price or that is scalper's price? this watch demand shot up a while ago due to netflix movie and yeah, I kinda like it but then again if people mark up the price because of that, i'm not willing to buy...

Yups! I see G People selling around rm1k ... can share your source rm800+ and still legit? Thanks!

QUOTE(jun_ng_1208 @ Dec 15 2020, 03:10 PM)
The olive green ones worn by Chris Hemsworth? That one import ones can get around RM 800+- for non carbon fibre version, don't bother with the CF version as you can't see the CF anyways biggrin.gif

dear experts, i was told that some G-shock watches may have the serial number removed (shown in red circle inside the pic) but it is still possible to be genuine, betul ka? is it because seller want to make sure remove the source if it's import set, so decode it?

is it true that only g-shock original will show what it says in the link when you press 3 buttons together?

https://www.quora.com/How-do-I-verify-an-or...l-g-shock-watch

The above figure is an general config of all G-Shock watches. The general button config should be the same for all.

Step 1: Press button A,C and D TOGETHER AT ONCE.

Step 2: You will notice that at all the places where numbers are supposed to be seen, you will get 8’s in that places, while in the places where texts are supposed to be seen, you will see big black blocks of pixels. (sorry if my terminology is wrong) and other output blocks will be filled. Press D 1, 2 or 3 times depending on your model.

You should get a code, which is same or similar to the one that is written at the back of your G-Shock watch, in the metal cover, near the words CASIO (note: it may depend on the model), if you do it correctly. Try again if it doesnt. If you are returned back to the time keeping mode just after you press D then you can be sure that your watch is a FAKE. If you get a code, chillax. You have bought an original G-Shock.

Assuming the difference is RM50 for an about RM1k watch...will you buy from the known reputable shopee seller (6k+ ratings) at RM1050 or go for rather new seller (500+ ratings) with relatively positive ratings a lot but at RM1k?

What do you think of this seller? Claims to sell legit and also 500+ feedbacks already... safe to go ahead and buy?

QUOTE(Everdying @ Jan 28 2021, 01:19 PM)
i would go for the seller that actually sells g-shocks...and not say with 6k+ ratings of hand soap and only 5 g-shocks sold etc.
anyway 500+ isnt that new...especially if all g-shocks.
