you are certainly right about the quickness and overall better functions of a straight digital watch. question remains why casio cropped a nearly perfect module of the GW-2000 series and made the GW-3000 series inferior (except for tough movement) to the point where it becomes almost next to useless (as a chrono)...:think:Nice looking watch :-!
I wish they were cheaper. For those that want more functions you have to either get all digital or an analog digital like the GA-100 Analogs just are not capable of displaying all that information. The ones that have more functions make you normally wait for the hands to move to there location for info, cant beat digital quickness.
