    After two years it kinda grew on me and I now use its functions daily. Just the charging every second day that was an irritation initially.

That's also how cars get character when they get used and you start to build a bond with them. If I don't have my old Seiko on I can really feel it and it bugs me until I get it back on.

    My fake TAG.
    Story behind it: while on contract for 6 weeks in Djibouti, my Breitling gave in. Crown wheel broke.
    Back then we still went to Amman twice a week and my colleague knew a watch place at the souk in Amman. I just wanted to get a cheap replacement watch, since I legally need one for work. Nothing the guy had in his show cases really appealed to me. My colleague told him to show me the "special collection". Off he went and came back with a briefcase full of fake watches. This TAG Heuer fake just caught my eye.
    It has been working faultless ever since. Cheap watches tend to last with me, slightly more expensive ones tend to give me trouble. Had a Longines when I was younger, very nice watch, but it went in for repairs often, just like the Breitling.Click image for larger version.

    Been wearing this only since I received it.
    (Instinct Solar, but not the surf edition).
    Charging of smartwatches always bugged me, and I could never reaaly "bond" with them.
    That has changed, and I enjoy it a lot.

    My wife got me a G-Shock for Christmas.

    I am tough on watches and never wanted to spend money on something that will last a year only.

    I was looking at a "tough" watch and after reading these things get worn by military and S.W.A.T guys and lasting through everything, she got me one.

    Im not a watchoholic so this will be my daily watch for work and play. But I would like to get the G-Shock Mudmaster later on.

    I like to moon and tide data. Comes in handy.

    I'm also big on watches. But I've never owned a smartwatch, hopefully getting one for my 30th. (Wife if you are reading this, this is me throwing a "skimp")

    My daily is the G-shock GA-700 (5522) got it as a Xmas gift from swambo 2 years ago and still love it, many functions that I don't really use or learnt to use yet lol.

    If the G-shock does not last you a year then you are really good at breaking stuff.
    Mine is going on 6 years no and only replaced one battery and the loop that goes on the band.

    This watch is so flipping comfortable. Can and have literally worn it for a week non stop, sleep, shower, type, etc.. not a single moment yet where feeling uncomfortable, big, heavy..

    I'm impressed!

    Only issue is the software for the Surf sessions need to be revised.. it's not so great, but then the waves weren't that day either..

    Hence why the wife bought me a G-Shock.
    The durability of these things seems amazing. I will probably wear this watch until I retire.

Around R7k now on Amazon..prices seem to be going down a bit, I WANT one on a jubilee bracelet. Perhaps later this year before they all disappear! One of the best daily's out there well done!

    I'm an apple slut and with new series 6 launched there was some tempting deals on the outgoing series 5 so bit the bullet. (my old series 3 got passed on in the family) The always-on screen is a nice upgrade and the resolution is markedly better. The bump in processor gave it nice boost in speed compared to the old watch
