Not sure issit the resin version not too popular or nobody saw and bought, but yah saw one black resin steel gmw at jem outlet..
In HK, Resin is always ex-stock but full metal always OOS.

I already had that intention to hoot until the mod version came out. Sama sama feeling at fraction of the original cost but then again, the functions are also fraction of the original. 😂

Oh ok.. Guess full metal one is still a new novelty everywhere for casio, especially non mtg mrg or edifice or oceanus series.. Well, the functions of the new one is indeed interesting to me, at least for g shocks lah.. Especially the reminders that u can set with the app..

Oh yes it is, the functions are pretty solid...kinda like a smart watch if u ask me. Casio really score big time with this full metal.

Yes, Casio did very well with the full metal square. Absolutely gorgeous. But I struggle to call the full metal square a smart watch. The GMW-B5000 does not maintain a continuous bluetooth link with the phone which impacts the smart features it can have (eg: no notification of incoming messages/alerts which is a key feature of a "smart" watch).

I believe Casio had a square that would notify of messages - the GB-5600, I would love for Casio to further develop that range. Sigh, maybe I need to wait for Casio's 40th Anniversary squares... Lol

One of my g tough solar battery level won't go higher than medium. I have mudman which dropped to medium level also and I placed both watches under light to charge. Mudman already reached high level but the other one still at medium. Time to send to service centre?

Read the manual. Some Tough Solar models esp G-steel takes a looong time to charge.

The watch had been under light 24-7 for almost a week. Just checked the model, it's gx-56bb-1.

Can contact casio customer service first see if is battery issue before going down to service center.

I got what u meant bro, of cos I not saying these G are a full capable smart watch, my S3 or even my miband can let it smell smoke anytime. 😂

By "smart watch" I meant is able to connect via BT to adjust the settings etc, rather than poking the small buttons with our finger tips.

Perhaps one day G shock can really serve as a full featured smart watch but dun know leh, i feel it will lose that magic on its ruggedness design.
