G shock Watches are a common accessory for men who want a rugged, functional watch that does more than just tell time. Casio makes so many models of the G-shock watch it can be difficult to choose one. That’s why we’ve put together this G-shock buying guide! We will help you choose the watch that best fits your lifestyle and your budget! But before we can start looking at watches, there are some key things that you should know.
Waterproof: For the most part, the watches on this list are water resistant to a certain depth. After that, you risk the watch not working if you take it underwater. Below that depth, though, it should function fine without pressing buttons.
Case Diameter: The diameter of the case refers to how big the face of the watch is. This can tell you how easy it’s going to be to read it at a certain distance, or how big it’s going to be.
Functions: This is the number of different functions or features that it has. Common features are stopwatches, multiple time zone tracking, backlights, alarms, and countdowns that you can set so far out. The more your watch does, the more you get done!
Type: There are two main types of watches: digital, which displays the numbers instead of a watch face, and analog. Analog watches are the traditional watch faces with hands, and some even have smaller digital panels built-in to the watch.
Strap Material: What is the strap made out of? For most G-shock watches, it’s going to be shock-resistant resin. It’s comfortable to wear, won’t pull at your arm hair, and slips easily against your skin. It’s easily the best band material!
Gender: Most of these watches are meant for men or they are listed as unisex. To be honest, they are probably okay for women to wear as well. The only difference is the style and length of the band.
