No tourbillons here. The G-Shock Frogman GWF1000 ($560) is the definition of a wristbeast. Released in late 2009, we finally got a chance to get our hands on glad to declare that it’s a gear o’beauty. That is, assuming your idea of beauty is a solar-powered, atomic-timekeeping, dive-timing son of a bitch. The self-adjusting G-Shock Frogman ensures land or seabound adventurers will spend more time worrying about survival and less time worrying about depreciation. 200 meter water resistance, 31 time zones, tide graph, moon data, 1/100 second stopwatch, 4 alarms with 1 snooze, full auto-calendar (good to 2099), 8 month battery life (with zero exposure to light), and 115 gram weight round-out the features (full specs post jump).
Pardon the short review, we’re brawling a saltwater croc with a jealous eye on our Frog.
