Is there any such thing as a G shock that is smaller than 40mm? Any shock?? I've searched other threads and did not get much help, seems like 46mm was the smallest. If not, any other brand that makes 38mm or similar size digital? Only thing I found was the timex ironman classic, which is okay but rather have a g shock. Thanks!

Try looking for "G-Shock Mini," "Baby G" and the new "G-Shock S Series."

They're all smaller in size and marketed towards women and kids, which means SOME of the pastel colors and pinks aren't terribly masculine, but they also come in traditional G-Shock colors like black.

Yes! Thanks, found the BGD 501. Bad ass babe with a 40mm diameter top to bottom. Works fine for me.
Glad that you found one that you like!

If you haven't bought it yet, another thing to consider is that Casio measures their watches a little differently than most watch companies. While most other companies measure the diameter of their watches' cases and may include the lug-to-lug measurement, Casio always measures the overall size of anything that's not the strap -- which includes the bezel, which often extends beyond the watch lugs. All of this means that most G-Shocks measurements make them seem a lot bigger than the watch actually is, and people around here often comment on how their new watch "'wears' smaller" than they thought it would.

If you have smaller wrists or just prefer smaller watches, you'll probably like the model lines listed above. If you're basing the size off other watches you own that are 38-40mm in size, you may be a little surprised when you get your new watch!
