G shock watches
I have killed several watches in the past from mountain biking. Normally the metal strap wears out with too much off road use.
So I got one of these : http://www.amazon.co.uk/Casio-GW-1400DU-1AVER-G-SHOCK-Combi-Bracelet/dp/B000KLJVP4 It looks pretty smart and seems rugged enough to survive lots of knocks. Solar powered and Waveceptor.Posted 9 years agoToo_Punk_To_FunkSubscriber
Really happy with it so far. But it has a few years to go before it really proves itself 🙂Posted 9 years agoTooTallMember
So – to quantify solar powered watches:
If you are not a frikkin nightstalker and you are the sort of person who wears short sleeves occasionally, you’ll be fine. If you are a nightstalker or you have short arms / 24 hr a day sleeve-wearing sort, then you might not like the idea. I’ve worn the solar one for almost 2 yrs non stop and never had it anything other than fully charged.Posted 9 years agoredthunderMember

I got the GW-002E-1VER 2 years ago. It is Waveceptor and solar power and is quite simply awesome. It cost me £34 from Amazon.
In ‘normal’ use, under jackets, long sleeve tops etc. (rarely shirts)- using the light on a not infrequent basis, I’ve never seen the battery indicator less than ‘High’. I’ve found the Waveceptor function to be flawless. Never had a problem getting a signal anywhere in the UK, anywhere in the house. I now have a watch which I never have to worry about, and I know is to-the-second accurate.
Took it to Europe (Amsterdam) and it worked fine. In the USA it admittedly didn’t get a signal, but it didn’t lose any time over the week we were there.Posted 9 years ago
