G-Shock Tough Test #1

Okay everybody. Here's the first of the G-Shock tough tests. The tested watches are:

G-2300B-1V
G-9000
DW-6900
Timex Shock
S-Shock

Sorry about the substandard video and sound. I don't have a video camera, so I had to use the crappy video feature on my digital photo camera.

I'll be posted the other tough tests in this thread as well, as I upload them to YouTube.

I'm sorry, did you say substandard? There is absolutely NOTHING substandard about that whole video. I thought I was watching Mythbusters for a second :-! I even stepped back from my monitor as you suggested ;-)

Great job, glad to see someone joining me in YouTube land, and you did so much better than me. You sacrificed life and limb, you added credits, and you inserted yourself in the video. I tip my hat Buzzbait. Great job, and I look forward to #2. I noticed you got ballsier in the second test by the way....no hard helmet. Can you give us a hint on what you plan to do on your next one?

Oh by the way....did your wife at any point afterward ask what the heck is going on in there? lol

Buzzbait,

If that's substandard, you need a dictionary, my friend.

I find it excellent in form and contents. What a cool test. Now I understand very clearly what the Tough Test of Doom is about. :-!

Two notes:

1. "...and a genuine Chinese S-Shock, which I don't expect to hold up too well..." :-d

2. "No cute puppies were harmed during the filming of this movie". :-d :-d :-d

A full box of Maruchan points to you. :)

I'm a big fan of the precision and complexity of scientific language:

"Basically, we are just gonna lay this G-Shock on its side and whack it real hard with a hammer..."

:-d

Another great test, Buzzbait. :-!

Note: There's only one thing that I would recommend: after the test, hold the watches closer to the camera and for a longer time, so the digits' movement is more clearly visible.

Great videos! The quality is good, you can see clearly what's going on. The fan test looks pretty dangerous, make sure you wear safety equipments.

Number 2 video was great, I winced every time the hammer hit the watch. I thought the timex and the s-shock would have felt it, was quite surprised with the result.

Great work :-!:-!:-!
